Temperature Tests

 

 

The temperature of the core is pulled from MSI Afterburner with the max reading used after a completed run off 3DMark Vantage and the Performance preset.

The hottest GPU at idle came in at 35c and at load came in at 61c. I found myself shocked with these kind of numbers, in CrossFire, with two cards quite close to each other, these aren't the kind of numbers you'd expect to see under a setup that offers this kind of performance.

 

Let's see if this is coming at the cost of some serious noise levels.
