    Those temperatures sound fine - I don't think you have anything to worry about .

    Those temperatures are actually average, maybe a little towards the low side really.

    A stock reference 580 with the ref. vapor chamber cooler will reach those kind of temps at stock. Your card is factory OC'd, probably factory over volted and will be much quieter than a reference 580, all at lower temps. Sounds good to me. :)

    To minimize GPU temps, make sure your case has good air flow. A minimum of a 120-140mm fan blowing in from the bottom front and a 120mm blowing out the back. Ideally, if your case has the mounting holes, a 120-140mm fan mounted on the side pannel blowing into the case can decrease temps dramatically.

    Another good way to decrease GPU temps is to use Vsync, or if the game has an option for it, to cap the game at 60FPS. For example with Vsync off you may get 130 FPS with 99% GPU usage and a 75c load temp. Capping/vsync will give a solid 60 in that game while dropping GPU usage to nearer 50% and temps to ~60c ish. More frames !=better. If you have a 60Hz monitor, there's no real point running a frame rate higher than that except in certain game specific cases. Vsync is said to contribute to input latency, but to be honest I've been PC gaming for over 15 years and have never experienced an issue with input lag and vsync, except in Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, where Vsync did cause issues. These were caused by the game engine though, not by Vsync itself.

    Thanx for reply:) Actually while playing crysis 2 my card reach 82C and i think is very high for this card with windforce 3X on pcb. In reviews or in newegg opinions people say that this card normaly reach 63-65C on 100% load and this is normal temperature for this card, not 82C. I think i gonna RMA it.

    I get around 70C under full load, though 82C does sound quite high.
