Why are your guys video cards so hot? My GTS 250 runs at 50 celcius with 0% fan on idle.
The 275/ 280 / 285 are Performance Cards unlike your GTS 250...also, 3 x 280's in Tri Sli is going to produce heat...!

A lot of us, such as myself, are only mentioning our full load temps not our idle (since who cares about idle if your folding it 24/7)
