Firing up MSI Afterburner and looking at the core temperature, I find myself surprised with the low numbers. We come in a nice chunk below the GTX 580 offering and sit at a similar level to the HD 6970.

Considering the gains we're seeing, the fact that the card is ultimately running no hotter than the previous generation HD 6970 is just fantastic news.
