Yes air cooled with a custom fan profile I run myself.
And temps.. that's very difficult to quantify, because it depends largely on which game I play!
ARK: Survival Evolved, typically upper 70's C - low 80's C, like 78c - 84c.
GTA-V: 65c - 73c, max 75-76 in some areas.
Fallout 4: same as GTA-V.
Running the card at 1.300v & 1202 Mhz, EVGA Superclocked card with the ACX dual-fan cooler on it.
I was forced to stop playing Fallout 4 and delete it until I can upgrade though.. I got tired of playing at 28 - 34 FPS in some places. And for me, for some reason, the sliders for low/medium/high/ultra all resulted in the exact same frame rate in FO4, everything ran as if it was on ultra, the launcher doesn't do jack squat.
So yeah, most games it's like 60-mid-70's gaming. But some newer, beta/pre-release / unoptimized games it runs hot as a mofo. They've actually improved it a lot with ARK. Around october last year ARK used to run my 770 around 83c - 88c constantly, much better now.
There's a lot of other games I can't play with my 770 even though I have them.. Star Citizen, runs terrible.. 20 FPS. Project C.A.R.S. runs 30 FPS and jumpy all over the place.. GTA-V is okay, on medium I still get drops to 40 FPS in grassy areas.
And I have the 4GB GTX 770.
Depending on prices I may just forego the 1000 series and get a second 4GB 770 here later this year when the prices bottom out.. maybe if they slip to < $100.
