We've got two HD 5450s on hand, so we're going to CrossFire them for a bit of fun.

Temperature Tests

 

 

With the TES 1326 Infrared Thermometer literally in hand we found ourselves getting real-world temperatures from the products we test at load (3D clock speeds).

 

There are two places we pull temperature from - the back of the card directly behind the core and if the card is dual slot and has an exhaust point we also pull a temperate from there, as seen in the picture.

The reference cooler seems to run a little warmer than the single slot Sapphire design.
