Probably you have no idea from gpu architecture. Temps means nothing about silicon they only affects clocks.
Also you got a die that is 30% smaller than a titan almost and you got the same or more performance. The same that happened with ivy the same happens here. The trans density is too high for the die so you get higher temps. Also 30 more watt is nothing. An oced titan can pull more than 500 watt. A oced 3930k can pull more than 400 watt alone.
Also ivy has tjmax around 105-110. That means around 90-95C temps its okay for 24/7 but many people dont prefer to run that high. Nowdays its extremely difficult to kill cpu/components from heat because before even you reach the dead zone itself the component trottle back.
Also if i remember correct titan has also 90C temps by default as temp targetEdited by sugarhell - 10/24/13 at 6:13am
