clearly the backplate is doing its job.
interesting Did you take those? I'm not discrediting those images, however, they do not paint the entire picture. I could force my 780's fan to run at 40% then OC and fold on it making it a nuclear reactor in my computer.
Basically, I'm just wondering what the aggressiveness of the fan profiles are.
Lastly, isn't that just measuring the temperature off the backplate? Couldn't it be that the actual GPU's are frying their pants off?
