Temperature Test

 

 

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 extra voltage and clock speeds really cause the video card to jump up in the heat department like we can see the GTX 680 did just below it. The bigger issue is the big jump in idle temperature, though, that's going to hurt when it comes to those warm summer days.
