Review: Signature 2 cooler proves great match for GTX 680

Fan speed is PWM-regulated from about 1100 RPM to 4230 RPM (according to the PrecisionX monitoring tool). The GPU temperature is up to 76°C with the fans regulated automatically.

With the fans set at maximum speed the card is really loud but the GPU temperature is only 60°C.

GPU temperatures didn’t exceed 78ºC after overclocking.
