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.

Considering all the extra voltage we're running through the card, the temperature is still very good. The GTX 580 does indeed run warmer than the HD 6970 Lightning, but that's not a surprise. The main thing is we're not running too hot and you can see we're not with cards running up to 20c hotter in some situations.
