The thing that impressed me most was the temps. Those where far from high. Low 60's is nice. I'm sure in a well ventilated case, these cards will excel.

Well, with the right card you might cook the egg - look at the slowdown threshold: 140 C means a surface temp of well above 100 C. Nvidia always had the "hottest" chips around
