ECS are making a push into the enthusiast graphics segment. We've got a passively cooled 8800GT from them on the table.

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.

 

 

Like you would expect with any passively cooled card, it gets toasty but it's not that bad since we have seen passive offerings go up and above the 90c mark in the past.
