Got my 670 today. Everything seems to be running great and both my Apple LED screens work. One question and I want to see if other have run into it. The expansion fan seems to be running around 1300-1800 rpm and fluctuates. Also the power supply fan is ramping up to around 1200. Im running 10.8.2 and didnt install any drivers.

This is what it reads right now. [IMG]

Shouldnt the expansion be at 800? With my 5770 it never got about 900 even when gaming....

Dunno... I'm using a 5870 from Apple, though.
I also have an Areca RAID card in there, and an app called Fan Control in use.
