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.

Overclocked, the MSI GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme Edition does pump out a bit of heat with the core coming in at 79c. It's nothing major, though, considering the overclock we've got on the card. We also see it's cooler than the reference cooled card at stock which is always a good thing.
