Hello!

I have bought this card http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/EAH6850_D...

In the manual it dosen't say anything about the power cables, i can find two connectors on the card should i connect both or one cable?

Also when i play games the card is very noisy when i have played in some minutes is it right?

Sorry for my english.

You need to connect two 6-pin connectors to that card. Otherwise the card will have issues working.

I've got a similar graphics card, like Fantastik said you should connect 2 separate 6 pin power connectors to the video card. It is a little noisy, I noticed that with my card as well, as long as it's not smoking I wouldn't worry about it too much lol.

Yes, as long as it's not on the same cord of the other 6-pin connected to graphics card.

It could be driver issues, heat, or possible failure.

I'm think going to test reinstall my computer from 32 to 64 bit.

The card seems to work now but the cpu fan is now very loud and the psu is very warm. The graphic card is around 60 to 70 celsius is that ok?

Any cpu recommendations?

That temperature is normal for the graphics card. The CPU is fine.

You will want to overclock the CPU if you get a stronger card.

When i have playing a game in some minutes the cpu fan is very loud. Should i have Asus EPU enabled?

Well, ASUS EDU is supposedly to optimize the CPU so that it saves power when CPU is in idle and may increase the clocks for gaming.

If the fan is loud, it could indicate that it's hot inside the case you may need some good airflow.

Otherwise, turning on ASUS EPU won't harm the system.

Should i buy a new cpu fan or chassi fan?

A new CPU fan will definitely cool down the processor, it may not be as loud. There are silent CPU coolers.

It depends on how hot it is inside the case. Usually a case fan will help a lot, and cable management where airflow is not blocked helps.

I have this motherboard "M4A89GTD"
Will this cpu fan fit "Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2"?

The fan on the arctic freezer may block one RAM slot if you face the fan towards the RAM slots. But if you low profile RAM (small ram sticks) you may be okay. If you face the fan where there is nothing then it's ok. Otherwise it's a good cpu fan.
