Default Post your GTX 280 Temps with FurMark

I'm curious what GTX 280 owners get with Furmark this fearsome heat generating bench tool. I use the stability test and the max resolution for my display (1920x1200) and let it run until temps really stabilize. This may take 10 mins or more. When I got my card yesterday, It would reach 105C and throttle in less than 4 mins. I thought it was time for RMA like many of us. Tried it again today, now it seems to settle @ 96C. I'm still investigating this issue. Games did not go higher than 86C so far. I think Furmark may be the best tool yet to identify RMA candidates. Air coming out of the card so freaking hot. Ambient temp stable @ 23,5C

So what temps do you guys get ?
Q6600 @ 3.6 GHz (1.5125v Bios) (1.39 windows)
Thermalright 120 Ultra Extreme
Gigatybe P35 DS3R v2
Patriot Extreme PC6400 4-4-4-12
Seagate 500 GB 7200.10 SATA
Corsair 620W
