Thanks for the tip on the fan profiles. I'll check that out. I have tried running the Hawk on it's own and the temps still get up to 85-90C under load. I don't find that acceptable. Especially considering my Gigabyte card runs around 65-70C under load on its own. Certainly the Twin Frozr cooler isn't 20C worse than the Windflow cooler on the GB card?
