"Video card operating temperatures continue to be some of the hottest of any component in the computer. It's not uncommon for core GPU temps to reach 70°C, 80°C sometimes even 90°C under load, well beyond what's considered safe for most desktop CPU processors. Unfortunately in many instances the factory style coolers sacrifice noise and efficiency in order to conform to fixed size requirements, a necessary consideration for some case dimensions and particularly in multi-card configurations. Fortunately there are a host of aftermarket cooler manufacturers available who offer products that surpass the stock heatsink capabilities. The Zalman cooler we have for review today is one of their latest graphics card designs, the VF3000."

Yes, we know the Thuban six-core processor is around the corner but that is not what I was thinking about when I typed the last statement. I was looking more along the lines of overclocking. All you have to do is look at the box the board comes in. It is written as large as all outdoors. Equipped with MSI's OC Genie, MSI is just daring us to takes this new motherboard to its limits. And that is just what I plan to do using a big ass air cooler and some DDR3 1600MHz overclocking memory.
