Careful of the black plastic cable tie next to one of the fans,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asus nVIDIA 3D GeForce GTX 560 TI DirectCu II TOP Graphics Card (1GB) (Accessory)
Generally speaking I've been really happy with this card in the five weeks I've owned it. It replaced a GTX285 that made our office impossible during the summer because it was so hot. The 560Ti is the opposite - it has dramatically cooled our office so now we need the radiator on during the spring.
The reason for my review though is for the last week my PC has been making a horrible noise that I figured was probably a fan. Because I'd just replaced my CPU cooling fan at the same time it was mistifying me.
Anyway, it turned out that it is the fan next on this graphics card next to the DVI sockets. There is a litte bundle of wires that have been secured rather inelegantly with a black cable tie. This wasn't trimmed short enough and had rotated around so the plastic end fouled the fan blades. Fixing it was simple, but it seems mad to me that this would be the way they shipped the device without trimming the plastic so it would never foul the fan.
