    People who can afford top end nvidia tend to be able to afford after market cooling too XD

    no hassle for them.

    well what i mean is ive seen ppl fall for marketing and get nailed namely someone tried stuffing a 9800gx2 into an HP with a 350w psu and managed to get it in there and wedged used alot of adaptors to power it and POOF system gone :roll: these are the kinds of ppl i tend to deal with

    i have it on good authority namely my crazy sense that some poor sap will buy a fermi gpu stuff it in a tiny hot case and then call me cause it dosent work right when he didnt listen the first time

    :laugh:




    Suppose you have fair point reaper :laugh: hopefully they suppply them with decent cooling rather then bare minimum.

    After all will only be like 10 usd more per card, I think people would rather pay 10 more for a card that's garanteed cool.

    you would think they would, but joe average probably won't think that the extra cooling is needed.

    But how hot compared to GTX 280? Surely they'll do GTX 395 with pair of underclocked GTX 360s as I doubt there is any 55nm like die shrink coming, like with current cards.

    Well there was the HD4870 to HD4890, maybe they'll do something similar if it is really an issue and are going to make a dual-gpu card.

    ROFL that was legendary.
    Them people buy a card and think automatic upgrade they dont think about temps or whatever.

    Fermi better not run to hot because then there is little to no overclocking room and when they finally cool it down its almost like they cheated you. Like the original gtx260 and the revisions.

    I mean that does make sense... they are having manufacturing issues, with an extremely dense/complicated design = lots'o'leakage. It probably hogs power like a 2900xt too

    I doubt it just runs any hotter than the previous generation. These news reports are FUD imo. I think nvidia has everything under control (except releasing shit on time) For the performance increase of probably 70% over the last generation an increase in heat and power consumption is expected.

    Heat, bah, nothing a good ol' five slot cooler can't handle. SLI would get a bit difficult tho.
