    nah i think my i5-2500k will be up for the job, it's running 4,5ghz atm so i don't think it will over heat staying at 60c max running Prime95 for more than 4hours time.

    I'm jealous. I don't get my 680 until tomorrow. And I won't be able to play with it right away since I'm going to a concert. Plus I need to reinstall Windows.

    Would that Icy Vision fit with the power connector on the 680? I've got my 680 coming tomorrow and I've got an Icy Vision that has been doing nothing for over a year. I was thinking about getting the Twin Turbo II but if I can make the Gelid fit even by taking off a few fins that would be pretty awesome.

    Running Kombustor I assume would be under load, as that's a stress testing/benchmark program. That's fairly normal for a GTX 680 under an artificial stress test.

    Hah! I read Kombustor and thought Afterburner. That would make sense. Could get that down a little bit with a custom fan profile if you don't mind it running a little louder.

    Thanks to Erocker for letting me in on the EK water blocks..:toast:

    About the best Quality I have ever see in a Water block :rockout:


    I Had my hearts content on the Heatkiller 3.0, but Am sooo glad I got the EK Supreme HF Full EN Nickel instead!

    Ran occt @ 4.5Ghz and the temps from core to core were so close to being even.
    And 15c cooler then the H100.

    Got the TRUE 1155-56 Back plate. Made the install so muce easier :D

    Kombuster is the Afterburner version of FurMark, which loads a GPU higher than it will be loaded in any real-world situation (except maybe folding, but I'd have to let those guys answer that one). There were stories before of guys burning up their cards with FurMark :nutkick:

    Their Rev. 2 cooler fits but i think u but some accessories if u wanna use and older version:

    VGA Cooler Rev. 2 ICY VISION (Gelidsolutions.com)


    i hope it's normal DanishDevil bcs according to Nvidia Specs max temp is 98 C

    GeForce GTX 680 (GeForce.com)

    so i hope it won't get anymore hot doing games, but still i can just adjust the fan speed myself bcs it's really quiet even under load :twitch:
