My card still heats up my room to a few degrees above the rest of my house... I like to fold in the winter so my room stays nice and toasty!

I'll probably end up doing that if my room is cold. 90+ degree air is nice.

Suppose I should really go and finish my ME1 playthrough as Sentinel ready for ME2, considering the DLC should be out tomorrow.

I've just upgraded to 2* GTX260 OC Maxcore (one of them is OC2 maxcore but in SLI it slowdown).

I'll have to check the effect of this in ME2...

My card don't run over 80C at 40% fan speed while I play ME2.
If I increase the fan speed up to 60-70 (not to go over my case fans) I drop around 60-70C.

Ambian temp aroud 20-25C (70F-80F)

Shouldn't have too much of an effect... 1 GTX260 should be good enough for ME2... I get 60FPS constant if I don't use Texmod...

If I had that cooler on my 470 it would probably melt.

That's a silly thing to say. If I ran my cooler at 95% it would sound like a vacuum and be in the low 40s. I've done it. Plus, you have a lower-power and cooler-running card than me.

If I run 100% fan it sounds like 50 747's taking off all at the same time, amplified. Runs around 65-70

Mine at 100% is literally 75dB... It drowns out my music. (Well, it doesn't drown it out but it makes it hard to listen to...)
