really...my SLI set-up playing Warhead, all Enthusiast 1920 x 1200 no AA , Fan at 85% and I will still hit 66 - 70c and that is with great cooling Silverstone Case with a 120mm Fan pointing right at the cards.
lol oh ****, lol, I ment 65c
no its not under water, lol
I have my settings at 1680x1050 at gamer. I have a well cooled case, its the fortress in my sig.

Yeah ok that makes sense now.....the Temps I gave are most extreme...even knocking Warhead from Enthusiast to Gamer makes a big difference. FC2 is not that demanding, Fan at 75% Ultra and 4XAA and it never seems to get above 65c.
This Silverstone I have makes a huge difference, my old Smilidon Raidmax with the SLI set-up got pretty toasty!!!
