Do the 460's run pretty cool under load?
Hard to tell as one card was bad right out of the gate, I had massive screen tearing in anything I tried, then upon a reboot day 1 had massive screen tearing right in windows. So I right away sent it to EVGA to be rma'ed. The solo one I've been running for the week since seems pretty normal temp wise under load, the highest I've seen it go under load in Stalker: CoP is 65 C, but thats taking into account its been very hot here in Mass the last few days.
I'll have to check when I get the 2nd card back what the PCI multiplier is with them in spaced out slots. Thanks for the reply grey.
