Default Re: Do you get overheating issues with your GTX 280 ?

Just got my EVGA 280GTX today. Plugged it in, idles at 40c. According to EVGA Precision, the clocks are way downclocked at idle. Tried Furmark and the temps went to a maximum 80c with an auto controlled fan speed of 60%. Ran that for over an hour no problems. Crysis never took it above 70c. Much quieter than the 9800gx2 its replacing. Overall, great card, and no more stutters in Crysis!!!
