Shouldn't matter what temperature the air is entering the HSF, it should be capable of keeping the card cool unless you're holding a heat gun to it. The fact that there are so many overheating 280's is certainly concerning and signals a total lack of quality control with Nvidia and/or it's partners. Either way, this round of cards from Nvidia is a very risky purchase.

With an estimated 40-60% failure rate, I don't think that's it.

My Gtx 280 HAS NEVER passed 88C.

Fan Has never seen 100% even during Very High setting Crytek.

But the actual card feels very Hot.

If it reached 88C then it has gone to 100% Fan duty cycle. The fan goes to 100% if the card exceeds 85C... Just pointing it out...
