Initial results are unbelievable, almost to the point where I'm questioning the numbers. The highest temp I've seen (get this) is 35C. Under full load, overclocked to the nuts (currently up to +250mhz core / + 700mhz memory). The core is reportedly hitting 2145mhz, and will not go over 35C. This doesn't make any sense, but HWINFO64 reads the same as MSI Afterburner. I shall not complain!
