    Lightbulb Asus monitor VG248QE and Asus R9 290X DirectCU II OC

    Hello there guys firts of all in advance thanks for your answers.

    I was talking with Asus chat service about something i notice with my PC, this PC have only 2 days of life it's new, i have the Asus VG248QE 144hz monitor and the Asus R9 290X DirectCU II OC, motherboard Asus Crooshair V Formula-Z and AMD FX-8350 BE, case CM Trooper Rev.2, PSU Enermax Revolution 85+ 1050W, Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 1866mhz, OCZ Vertex 460 480GB and WD Velociraptor 1TB 64MB cache, so i notice that the normal temp of the video with the monitor at 60hz are about 38-40° with 20% fan speed, when i put the monitor to 144hz via Catalyst 14.4 the video temp go to 49-50° at idle with 20% fan speed sometimes 23%, so i was asking if that is normal because at 144hz when i ran the Unigine Heaven Benchmark with all to extreme the video temp go to 78-83° with a fan speed of 49-51% with 60hz it will be about 68-73° at full load, so i know this videos work with high temps and that the monitor refresh rate are incrementing that temp, i was thinking in putting the fan speed in Catalyst to manual at 60% always, what you recommend me guys or any suggestions or information you have it will be very aprreciate

    The other things i was seeing is that this monitor have a gaming mode i will find what that option do and i was thinking about the V-Sync in games, in all the major cases i never activate that option, you know if i work with the 144hz and keep the V-Sync it will not force more the video ?. and you know its impossible inclusive for a 290X to maintain a game like Crysis 3 to more than 60FPS and V-Sync can drop the fps too, so guys give me some advice and suggestions about all i have write and thanks

    60% always would be unnecessary instead why not use GPU Tweak's User Define option and provide 30% at 40C, 40% at 50C, 60% for 60C and over .. tweak it to whatever desired temperatures it's there for that so why not make use of it?
