Image seems to have stopped working but it was showing the 480 @ 106c and the 480 SLI at 110c.

Now, to be fair, their overall temps are high, but this will be the problem when 480s end up in badly ventilated cases/warm rooms.
For what its worth, I can confirm that the GPU will shut down at 106c. I reached that temp by running FurMark with manual fan control (at 70%).

I ran the test again, but this time I began to manually increase the fan speed once it hit 105c. Here's what I recorded:

75% - 105c
80% - 105c
85% - 105c
90% - 102c
95% - 99c
100% - 99c

Once it gets hot, it stays hot
