Well, I've been happy until now, and now I just can't take it anymore. The top right fan on my BFG 5900NU is running at a higher RPM than the one on the bottom left (records from my extremly detailed stick-fingernail-in-fans and compare the whine of each), so it must be running at a higher voltage, as it is connected to a 2 pin connecter at the top left of the card, and the bottom left fan connected to the same 2 pin type connecter in the bottom left. So now my question. Any way to shut this thing up? I would unplug it, but I'm concerned about temperatures, and the thought of it being unplugged would bug me to no end. Is it possible to run both fans off of one power connecter? I know my soldering skills aren't exactly up to par, but I'm pretty sure I know how to get two wires together :p

If not, is there anyother way?

RMA it to BFG. They'll take care of you pretty quick.

Also, you're the first person I've heard of that had a problem with their cooler. Bad for you, but great quality record for them.

This things faster than my 9800P ever was... and I doubt I can RMA since I hacked the BIOS. Guess I'm SOL.

Nah, you can always get aftermarket cooling.
How about water + pelt?
