Default Re: GeForce GTX 590 reaches 112 degrees C

With their infrared heat camera they concluded that the highest temperature of the card was 111.9 grader Celsius, not surprisingly the hottest spot was between the GPUs, where we find the power circuits.

In the same tests Radeon HD 6990 resulted in a maximal temperature of 90.3 degrees Celsius, on the one GPU. In the overclocking mode where the card will consume 75 watt more than GeForce GTX 590 the highest temperature rose to 96.1 degrees Celsius. Also this time it was the GPUs that were the hottest spots.
