The Magnificent Seven: GeForce3 Board Round-up

Hardware Monitor


The Hardware Monitor displays the graphics card's operational state, listing values for temperature, fan speed and 3D chip voltages.

Overheat Protection is a really good idea if you choose to overclock your card. Dynamic Graphic Cooling, on the other hand, is unnecessary, since the fan on the graphics card ought to be running all the time anyway. The noise it generates is still less than that of the CPU fan, which cancels out the perceived noise from the graphics card fan.
