Dunno about the GT8, but my GT7 is a year old and running just fine. The vrm heat sink is just a lump of aluminum but I have never seen the vrms go over 60C @ 1.394v.



A quirk is that the case fans are tied to the system sensor instead of the cpu sensor. This means that while stress testing the cpu fans are wound up while the case fans are idling, but when gaming the cpu fans are coasting and the case fans are pushing lots of cool air into the gpu. My Fury rarely touches 60C.
