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
WTH - it reached 100c with the fan set to 100%? Yikes!
Hope they built these well or we'll start seeing dead GTX 480s everywhere. Still I think watercooling might be the only solution for SLI'd rigs with this one.
