I dont see how... nvidia says max of 105C... 70C seems like a normal load temp for me.
Im running cyclones that would hit 80C+ from the factory, after some mx-4 TIM and a little 1600grit love with the heatsinks I got it down to 69-73C at load w/ OCCT/f@H....My idle temps are like 38-44C
I dont see how in the heck people have cards that run sub 20C idle and only 50-60 at load... thats insane.
I can only get my cards to around 880mhz or so core at 1.087... I run 1.075v and 875mhz.
For the price I paid for them, (~280 for both) I really dont mind if they burn up, as long as I get 6 months out of them. Heck of alot cheaper than paying ~500-550 for a pair of 560s or 470s which would only net me 10-15% increase in performance... i dont even play games that max out my cards.Edited by rmp459 - 1/24/11 at 7:57am
