It is hot, that is true and there is no denying it. But it isn't that much more than the 4870x2 and others.
I had the HD 4870x2 and never had any over heating problem. ATI had the starting fan speed for gaming set way too low. I set my fan speed in the profile at 45% and the problem was solved. I doubt there is going to be same easy solution for GTX 480.

Anyway I think we should be more comparing the temperatures on current generation cards because those are the only upgrade options.

Image seems to have stopped working but it was showing the 480 @ 106c and the 480 SLI at 110c.

Now, to be fair, their overall temps are high, but this will be the problem when 480s end up in badly ventilated cases/warm rooms.
For what its worth, I can confirm that the GPU will shut down at 106c. I reached that temp by running FurMark with manual fan control (at 70%).

I ran the test again, but this time I began to manually increase the fan speed once it hit 105c. Here's what I recorded:

75% - 105c
80% - 105c
85% - 105c
90% - 102c
95% - 99c
100% - 99c

Once it gets hot, it stays hot

Thanks for that mate.

It's annoying as the performance is decent but these things run way to close to the tjmax. I think bad things will happen when these cards hit end users rigs (in some cases).

I can't wait to see some end user results.

I've decided I'm not buying anything until after market coolers hit the shelves and are thoroughly reviewed. Then it's simply a matter of decent case airflow, assuming the cooler dumps the hot air into the case.

More end user feedback + time for better coolers + time for the competitions refresh to show it's hand. A little more patience = win win for me.

Hope they hurry though, i really want to upgrade.

Default Re: Man, it is sooo hot.

i still would like to see some real world test.

I don't care that it can reach 90+ in furmark, furmark is not a game

what are temps when you play a game with vsync on?

93c was in Crysis, not furmark.

Thermalright says they will be releasing versions for the 470/480 soon.

Oh please.......let's not get defensive here ok? Just stating my opinion just like everyone this in the forum.

I've had a GTX260 for 1 1/2 yrs now and loved it. I've just decided to upgrade to the 5870 because heat and power usage are huge issues with me. I like the performance AND efficiency of the 5870 better than the 470/480 cards....that is it. I'm not a fanboy of either so don't read anymore into it than what it is, an objective opinion.

And I still stand by post saying the extreme heat these cards produce should be a major concern. Especially to guys that like to OC alot. The endurance and longevity is a huge question that only time will tell.

Default Re: Man, it is sooo hot.

I'm not willing to drop $500 on a card that I know will be $100 - $150 cheaper in 2 to 3 months but, the local shop I frequently make purchases from had one in an Antec 1200 case. Putting a 120mm fan directly below the card blowing up to the 240mm in the top of the case dropped the max temps from 93c to 77c while playing Crysis.

No idea as to what the card's fan was set at or the specs on the 120mm fan speed though... forgot to ask. Couldn't really comment on the noise either as there was quite a bit of other noise in the store. If I can get 1 to run at those temps I'll be fine with that, that's right in the 8800GTX ball park for temps and a single card solution is what I'm looking for.

I can't imagine running SLI with these things without either water cooling or having the window open during a Wisconsin winter. Tri-SLI might require both

Definitely sounds promising

PS : 470 or 480?

I wonder if I use that cooler and the 470 in my P183 case if I'll have issues. I'm using 120MM fans front/back that move 49CFM.
