Default Re: eVGA GTX 470 Temperatures?

Before I set my fan profile I used to get over 90C while playing Crysis, and 60C idle.

Now I set my fan profile to always be at 45%, and if cards go above 60C The fan will start going up, max speed for fan I set is 90% but that's only if the temps go up to 90C.

And I also added an extra 120mm fan that blows right into them, and an 80mm fan as well.

So now my temps are 40C idle, and when playing Crysis at max settings with 16xQAA, they don't go above 83C with the fans at around 60-65% speed.

But I think 90C is normal for these cards...
