Hi OC fellas!
I got the EVGA GTX 670 (non-FTW, and non-Superclock) -the Reference design one-, and @ stock with no overclock I get 79-81c while playing Crysis 3 or FarCry 3 (Full load with a TDP of (up to) 118% max) with an ambient room temps of around 18-19c, at idle the card is so cool (30-34c), so the question is: Do I have a serious problem with my card or are they designed to run like this? BTW fan profile is set to auto (stock one), I didn't change it on precision X because the fan is already noisy when the card is @ 80c with an auto fan of 60+% at this temp. Manually setting the fan @ 80% I get 69c max but I could feel my desk is about to float and the case preparing for a takeoff!. My case has good airflow and I also keep it with no side covers.

P.S. I will never buy any reference design Graphics Cards again.
Thanks

Thanks everyone for your answers. I think am gonna stick with it without overclocks until I find a good aftermarket cooler. I think am even gonna downclock it in the meanwhile.
