Never said his card will, but maybe its easier to say it like this: passing 54*C cards will drop boost, the higher the temp, the lower the clocks.
So it's not looking at 71 vs 74, im looking at 54 vs anything above that.
The lower the temp i can get, the better, and that incl mounting the cpu rad on the top.
spot on, the first sentence!

Buuuut, 54C isnt realistic for an air cooled card. You're missing the point. The lower the better, indeed, however, the real discussion is where his card will sit temp wise (which is going to be a lot closer to 70s than 50s) and the temperature differences between rad setups...which, as you see in his video for that setup, changes about 1C ( ivave it 1-3C but cases will vary). Again, every case is different, but maybe you'll see the forest through the trees. So yes, lower is better... but the difference isnt remotely "crippling" it is a couple of C and drops a boost bin or two. Please shut down the FUD machine. :)
