    I think the temperatures in both my cards hold at around 60-65*C when they're running SLI playing WoW, so it's not too terrible. They do sound like jet turbines when I have the fans above 70% though.

    Playing battlefield is a different story though. 75-80*C minimum for both cards.

    Well, no surprise there then.


    Anyway, @people posting their specifications, post some m!¤%&"#ing pictures.

    GTX 460* SLI runs at 80C.. in WoW And pretty much any game, think fan curve in bios is adjusted to not let the card exceed 80..

    *the EVGA variant with annoying blower, radial fan-type, fan.

    Got a low profile Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 to put in my semi-gaming HTPC. Hoping it will kick into that 3W power saving mode during nights, we'll see. Not that I can hear it during idle anyway but the HTPC is always-on (for rss-downloads/server/ftp/recording TV) so it'd be nice if it drew as little power as possible in idle.

    My 470, before watercooling, would regularly hit 80-90 even when not being pushed 100%.

    After watercooling and overclocking (from 607 to 800Mhz) it was running at 40-50 degrees. Still hot!

    Looking forward to seeing how my 680 performs.

    Is that a soundcard? What is the use of it, alot better quality sound? My sound is highest quality and I aint got one, or is it just to easy up your motherboard.

    If you don't have a sound card, then no, you don't have the highest quality sound - but you might think you do.

    Might buy one then, I bought mine when GTX590 released and all and I think I might skipped it due to not willing to spend more cash then the GTX590 and the entire new rig back then , haha.

    Onboard audio is pretty good, but I apparently need a lil' more power for my DT 770s, according to head-fi's lil' list. Whether your headphones will benefit or not from a soundcard varies quite a lot.

    I'll see how I feel about that soon, I think.

    I like where this thread is going. I had a 6670 card where the fan on it broke. My case also only had 2 120mm fans, one for the case, and one for the cpu chip. My record internal temperature was 104C with nothing but two browsers and some background programs before I replaced it all.

    It's that time of the week again! The thread is starting to go off topic, please keep the discussion to builds and questions/comments directly about said builds. If you'd like to talk about GPU temperatures, case fans, etc please use the Chat Thread (link in my sig!) or make a new thread!
