mine never gets over 70c even with ati's fuzzy cube running forever. ^_^ not shabby. I'm too lazy to apply some mx2 instead of whatever stock crap comes on it. might help some.

wonder how watercooling would come into play on one of these? Could it be done since its two squashed together cards? That'd fix the heat problem >.>

I don't mind the heat its putting off, though it would be bothersome if it melted some of the tubing I have running over the card for my cpu XD
