    Ironing out the Epic-W.

    I've heard a few different things from different people.

    Whats the optimal temprature? I know the dragon liked to run hot, but what does the Helium like?

    I believe mine is currently black shaded for 43C or 44C. I live in AZ so the stock 36C was an impossible target to even hit.

    Hey Timur,

    I live in LA and I changed my weapon helium to 43 from the default and personally noticed quite a difference with the blackshade. But that's just my own experience.

    I tested them all up to 46 & 44 was the best by far.
    Auto has the edge over manual but it's slight if you're pushed for time.

    I've also maintained 44 in -18 & 52 conditions, it's an effort but all possible.

    So why would REDS default setting be 36? Thats how it came out of the box?

    44 seems high... Though the dragon ran best at 45.

    Does it change the noise signature? cleaner? running cooler or warmer?

    Think mine is set at 41. Will power up tomorrow to confirm. I think in the 30s the fans would be crazy loud anyway.

    Is there any test out there that shows the noise or image differences between all the temperature calibrations? I keep hearing that Dragon love the heat..

    I sent my results to RED EUROPE & they confirmed 44 was the sweet spot.
    Way lower noise yes.
    Cleaner, yes.
    "Cooler/Warmer" as in colour temp K? If so: I've not noticed or test it with a 44 vs 39 comparison so that's a confident, no.
