What kind of temps are you guys getting?

Mine is idle right now at 50c. Shouldn't it be cooler?

Where are you located? I live in Miami and it's pretty hot down here.

I just ran rthdribl and the max temp was 72c. From reviews I've seen that's pretty normal.

lol my 7900GT temps are like 52C idle, 71C load. My old 7800GTX 256MB was like 77C idle, 100C load, so I'm thinking this card is way cooler! :p

No, my stuff usually runs hotter than any body else's I know, wether it's CPU or video card, no idea why, doesn't seem to matter how awesome cooling I put on stuff it just doesn't work.

50C idle
65C load

Your temps sound normal for the factory OCed cards to me.

Nah, like now I got a Lian Li PC65A which is a nice cool case, with plenty of airflow, doesn't help. For example my P4 CPU runs @ 81C load making AsusProbe beep. Idles around 60C. I always have this luck with heat, dunno why.

I'm idling around 47C and loading at 65C with the 84.20 drivers. With 83.90 the temperatures were just about 10C higher all around.

Anyone reseat their heatsink with some AS5 yet? What is the stock TIM between the memory chips and the heatsink? Are there thermal pads?
