Is there a high performance card that does NOT blow hot air ? lol
My old ati 5770 doesn't make my room temperature go up like this.
I am not really sure if I should keep them or send it back for a refund. It's hot summer in California and I don't want them to heat up my room
Your suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT: Yes, it is set to stock clock/fan profile. I don't really care about card temperature, but those hot air coming out makes me hot
i just got rid of my comp, cuz all i play is sc2. I couldnt afford my electric bill, my computer would pump hot air into my room, than my ac would cut on.

My electric bill was $170 for a 1 bedroom. As soon as i switched to my laptop, it went down to about $70.

Large capacity water cooling with no fans will solve your problem.
and provides SILENT cooling.

Didn't you have a GTX 580 Lightning and other cards like that before? There is not really much you can do about the heat dump unless you put a duct at the back of your case that directs it outside through a window. Also you could go watercooling and mount the radiator outside.

Yeah, a hot day in most of California is nothing compared to Arizona. 95-100 F is nothing compared to the 120-125 F days in Arizona.

Yea I guess I have to deal with these heats lol.
I do swap GPU very often, so water cooling is not a good idea for me.
Going to try crossfire and after that unlocked shaders.
