Also I'm just not happy with having to use Precision X. Overall just not satisfied with this card and I'm gonna sell it and keep the STRIX unless I can mount a G12 to it without a shim.

Have you tried reapplying the thermal paste? You can do it without voiding the warranty thankfully. Sounds like poor contact between the GPU die and the cooler's heatsink. Those temperatures just sound off when compared with the reviews.

How are you other people finding noise? Relatively silent or hair-drier? tongue.gif I have a friend who is getting this card in a few days, will see how it performs then.
