Default Re: GeForce GTX 590 reaches 112 degrees C

Personally, I still don't understand why they ship these cards with mediocre reference design coolers. It's like buying a Ferrari with $40 tires on it to save a few bucks.

If you purchase one of these cards and know anything about PC hardware you have to know that you're going to get high temps unless you replace the reference cooler.

If you can't afford a Ferrari unless you go with the $40 tires, don't complain about the handling.

If you can't afford to put something other than the reference cooling solution on one of these cards, don't complain about the temperatures.
