Default Re: Does Fur-mark represent how hot games will be.

I only have run the Unigine benchmark and I have never run Fur-mark. After running Uni, my 480 was unbelievably hot. I put my hand near the back exhaust plate and it was like a hair dryer on low. I touched the metal plate and if I left my finger there it would have been singed.

I have a 120MM side fan blowing on the card right by the heat pipes.

Under normal operation, it gets pretty hot but not too crazy. I would think these tools are too stress the card and put it at near max conditions.
