I don't have a kill-o-watt meter
I have a small rad and my i5 and one of the 470's share it, but the second card between the first 470 and the 9800GT is stock cooling with shin etsu on everything.
I also shut my window as I'm trying to dial in my summer 65F - 70F overclocks and I don't really care for heat. I need to pick up a 360 or even a 480 rad though when I get another gtx block
This driver gave me flickering in Crysis 2, but that game is terrible anyways (changing the .exe to bioshock sloved the flicker) but it still dogs out and doesn't request anymore gpu usage when lighting affects occur.
I usually play with triple buffering forced and vsync forced as well.
I'll see about getting a kill-o-watt if nobody else does it in a few days, thus far temps in the games I was playing before seem to be exactly the same, but I game with headphones right now because I have a very aggressive fan profile on the stock card.
