I'd been waiting for someone to do this and it seems that people's fears are justified (to some extent at least).

Cheers for posting it

Kinda scary. That last one, where its been on a while, similar to normal game conditions where you play for an hour or so, its raised the temp inside the case to ~100 degrees F, 85% fan speed. What if you played a 3-4 hour session, as I sometimes do? That's not what I would call a poorly ventilated case either, its similar to mine.

It's not what I'd call a "well ventilated" case with it's single intake and single out fan either.

My Cosmos 1010 has 2 X 120mm intake and 3 X 120mm out flow fans. The NZXT Zero I had before that had 7 X 120mm and 1 X 80mm. And the Thermaltake XaserIII I had before that had 7 X 80mm fans.

So my last three main cases had 5, 8, and 7 fans (not counting PSU and GPU) and you say having 2 is well ventilated?

The GTX480 is an enthusiast part, requires an enthusiast case.

151 degrees F on the heatpipe surface. Holy cow. Hope there's a warning sticker on top of the card so people don't burn themselves.

Yeah not even an enthusiast case is going to be able to keep ambient temps down with that thing radiating heat.

I had a Stacker 832 for years. It's very fussy about how you set up the flow but once you get it right they're one of the best air cooling cases IMO. Internal temp was always the same as room temp. It's better without the side fans, or with just one for the cards. You're right about it letting all the noise out though.

with ambient temp of "10 degrees higher" stayed at 93c, load was same, and fan at 64%
in final case scenario of ambient temp of 98f, card was at 93c, same load, and fan at 89%

and Kyle in video said that he changed the ambient temp in case.

and that was under Metro, game that is more demanding then Crysis

I guess you didn't understand it at all? He didn't "change the ambient temp" rocket scientist. The heat from the card inside the case was making it go up. That was the point. That last one, in a game, after an hour, the case temp had gone up to ~100 degrees F in the case from the card, and the fan was at ~90%. If he had kept going for 3-4 hours at that same rate, what would have happened? The fan had already climbed to near max, another 30 min or so and the fan would have hit 100% and theres no where to go from there.

Who knows for sure, it may have leveled out at 90% fan speed, but it didn't look like it was going to, to me. I personally would be worried about a runaway heat scenario where the card keeps heating the inside of the case, making it harder to cool the card, which then heats up more, heating the case air more, and so on, until something overheats and fails.
