I knew these cards were going to run hot. And a p183 case is a quiet case not like the antec 1200 case or a case like it would probably keep the gpu below 93c. Right now the gpu is sitting at 51c and its lowest was
47c. I tried overclocking but hit temps of 97c just going from 0.962v from 0.950v. I probably got one of the hotter cards I guess.

Scythe fans spin at 1200rpm moving 49cfm, but air filters reduce air flow some. With the case door open and the filters taken out furmark full load temps dropped from 92c to 86c. But dust is evil and the dust filters are worth the higher temps imo.
