Hey, I currently have two GTX 460's in SLI, flash bios'd from a geforce to a evga superclocked. Current voltage is 1.05 - 1.075 customized in nibitor. The clock is at 875/1750/2000. With fan speeds at 100%, after gaming for one hour, no artifacts or crashes, nothing, Im reaching 78-83C. Are these temps safe? considering my fan speed and all? Thanks ahead of time.

Nvidia's 400 series is made to run hot. With my GTX 470 I found that it was spec'ed to run up to 110 C (but I backed off when I approached 100 C). 78-83 is a bit warm, but not outside spec. I would still recommend that you supplement the cooling with a side dooor fan or modding the cards with better cooling.

you flashed the bios of the video card? i know i've heard of that, sounds interesting. one thing i can tell you is that i've monitored a gtx 580 evga 3072, and with maximum fan cooling (multiple 9" diameter fans blowing), just off nvidias demo software it was at 85C. Right now i have a gtx 560 asus directcu, it seems to be better cooling than most of these cards, don't really see this one go over 65C.

REALLY!?!? My 470 runs at 43 Idle and around 75-80 under stress....
