    XFX GF7800 GTX Extreme Edition

    Guys - what kind of temp should i expect from this card?

    I have a really airy case with plenty of air movement throughout - however, i am a little concerned with the temp of my GFX card -

    50 degrees idle
    70 ish under strain (FEAR etc)

    Your opinions would be appreciated..

    My 6600GT runs 55'C Idle and 71'C Load, so its fine. The X1800XL runs 90'C odd so you wouldn't expect less from Nvidia.

    Not a GTX but I have the XFX 7800GT clocked at 450/1050, that runs at 47C idle to around 76C full whack.... Your temps look fine to me.
    What we share with everyone is glum, and dark...

    Thanks guys - just wanted to check i wasn't being too cautious....

    Does running 2 in SLI reduce the load by a lot?
