Default Zotac GTX470 Amp! Edition Thoughts

Hello everyone, first post. Thought I would start a thread about the zotac gtx470. Mostly Overclocking results and what your temps are. Also how you like the card in general. Lame topic but I need a first post.

There is probably very few people that bought that card.
How are your temps?

Yeah I sort of thought that. Its pretty much a Zotac GTX470 with a zalman cooler. My temps are pretty good. I was playing black ops with full settings on and i just hit 40 degrees celsius after a few hours.

Wow only 40C full load? I've got a 470 that hits 70C at full load.

yeah those are my temps unless Afterburner is lying to me. I like a cold room so my intake air is "crisp" to say the least. I have quite a few fans as well. I was playing Microsoft FSX with VLC playing HD as well and had fluctuating temps between 40 and 50.
