Well, Furmark too after 15 mins or so.

There is/was no second revision.
The cards were produced in 1 "run" on 2 different production lines.
I have 2 samples in the office that run 670mhz 24/7 and my "Rev 2" that runs 720mhz 24/7 in fact, both of mine do 700mhz+ 24/7.
At home, my card is a Rev 2 and runs 692mhz stock...
There were not 2 different versions...There were not 2 different productions...There was no real revision.
Your card will operate at the max specs it can run at...This is true of every card.
It is possible they were flashed differently but, the runs were identical...And I highly doubt they took the time to make the swap.
That being said Furmark pushes the fan to 100% which, doesn't exactly circulate cold air considering you need a very solid intake...This //can// cause heat issues...Edited by Masked - 10/25/11 at 12:03pm
