This is too funny! To bad it didn't cook completely.

The thing that impressed me most was the temps. Those where far from high. Low 60's is nice. I'm sure in a well ventilated case, these cards will excel.

Well, with the right card you might cook the egg - look at the slowdown threshold: 140 C means a surface temp of well above 100 C. Nvidia always had the "hottest" chips around :)

According to Nvidia that will be fixed with an updated bios before the cards ship.

The card in 2D clocks at 400/925 when two monitors are enabled, not 50/65 or whatever crazy low frequency it normally operates at. Same deal with 58xx, 400/1200 instead of 150/whatever, except it seems to be broken and people are complaining about 2D performance issues. They have to use Tray tools to set custom 2d clocks.
