That is my big concern.

I read the Tomshardware benchmarks and they talked about the card throttling back due to heat when pushed. It still provided great performance, but the temps over the long term would worry me.

I am hoping that some companies come out with a better cooling system to help the card run cooler and improve on it's already good performance since it would not be throttling the GPU so often.

That is a lot of heat! Wonder what it's performance is if it was throttled down to stay under/near 80 ÂșC? I would be afraid that on extended gameplay periods that would affect the lifespan of the GPU...
