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 target
lol what? First off lets not compare cpu's here, the reason they got so hot is a fail IHS. Secondly, as you go down in die size you SHOULD be getting lower temps cause of the lower (again, supposed) power draw. I will GUARANTEE you the next die shrink for nvidia will see lower temps and power consumption. For the 290x to get as hot as a fermi just shows how terribly engineered the stock heat sink is, thats what we are ribbing you about! AMD needed to come out with a PROPER reference sink like the titan has.
And no, titans thermal limit is 80c...
