yup my 480gtx SC hasn't got over 86c yet. that's in crysis playing for 45minutes. i have good case cooling but that's no different than my GTX280 in the same case with the same case cooling. I leave everything on auto and i'm lovin the card so far. reviews seems over blown with that and unless your room temp is 30c i'm not sure how they are getting 97c in the reviews. my 2 cents only but i don't do SLI so maybe that's the difference.
