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.

Heading to 81c, the MSI R9 270X 2GB HAWK does get quite warm. It's not a huge surprise though, with the way AMD has handled the cooling profiles with the R series cards. Also, with the added voltage and the very strong core overclock, the increase number doesn't shock us all that much.
