Just waiting for the day someone actually makes a heating unit out of one of those.

Both HD6990 and GTX590 should never be released.

Yea not really surprised at all. It's like putting a space heater in a closet and turning it on high. They basically need to put some type of airflow requirement on the box.

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.

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.

The reference coolers are not mediocre at all on these cards. There is only so much they can do when you need to dissipate 350W of power. In the OPs scenario it wouldn't really matter which cooler is on the card as it's recirculating warm air inside the case. I bet if you took the reference cooler and stuck a duct between the fan and the side panel the cards temps would drop.
