I'm looking at getting a GPU (EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1463-KR) that apparently runs at 80 degrees C under load, and I'll be using it for rendering so it'll be at full load for long periods of time. Is that temperature anything to worry about? If so: I have a corsair 500r with the default fan setup. How would my $30 be better spent: adding 3 case fans, or getting a GPU that runs at 70C instead of 80?
The corsair 500r already has a great cooling solution built into the case. The money would be better invested in moving the heat away from the gpu with an improved aftermarket cooling solution. Once the heat is moved away that case takes care of the rest.
