The temperatures were creeping up and up and, without the cooling kicking in as it did, the GPUs would have collapsed under the load. The manual step the fans were on essentially meant they remained at a specific speed no matter the temp.
I'm sure there will be a balance you can strike with the amount of fan profiling on offer (as I mention in the piece) but it is going to take a bit of effort on your behalf.
It's the same artist, so that's not too surprising.
It's impressively quiet. I believe the Max Q spec is for gaming load to be 40dB or less.

Agreed. It's clearly not controversial at all. Those that ARE Nazis will of course not see anything controversial about it because they think they are the correct view. The rest of us (thankfully a majority) disagree.
I never thought we'd back here battling Nazis as a real non-trivial entity again 72 years later, but here we are. I suppose 72 years is long enough for the events that transpired in WWII to be far enough in the past where no one has a real attachment to how truly vile that time was.
