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.
If there was one area that we would hope this GTX 680 would do well in it's the temperature one and you can see the Inno3D even when overclocked puts out some awesome numbers.
While we're sitting a little warm at idle you can see when under load this is the second coolest running video card here with the low-end HD 7750 being the only card to come in cooler. It's great to see that the cooler that Inno3D has opted for performs so darn well. Let's hope it doesn't come at the cost of noise.
