After al that ive heard about temp problems with these cards, this one runs surprisingly cool. At 60% fan speed, it idles at 46*, and after a good 2 hour seeion of stalker, it hit 65* max.

It transpires that I have been lucky, and gotten a card with a newer, larger fan, so that will have something to do with it.

Mine idles at 51C, and can hit about 71C after hours of gaming, but my fan is only at 45%.
