Im sorry but this thing just plain cools like crap. This dual fan thing is the worst cooling Ive ever seen. They made a card look good instead of cool good. Im returning it to Best buy tomorrow, going to go get the Evga one at circuit city.

Note to yall: The BFG 6800GTOC dual fan version is the worst creation, HSF speaking, ever

All those cards run HOT. if you're expecting any of them to be cool to the touch with the stock HSFs then you'll be dissapointed.

If it's overheating and causing crashes, you either live in Death Valley or your case airflow is bad.

You think your card isn't cooling well? Try touching the HSF on my 9800 Pro after 15 min. of Doom :mad:
