Stock cooler is actually sufficient after the 8.10 drivers because you can set the fan speed. The temps are around 55 degrees idle with 30% fan speed. This thing certainly packs a punch, runs all my games fine. Right now I have it watercooled with a DD bock idling at 34.
This card eats every game out there once you set it up properly. Installed mine and tried to run 3d mark twice. Both times I came back to find my computer had restarted. Took a look and discovered it was idling at 80 degrees C. Yikes. Downloaded EXPERTool ATI and cranked the fan up to 60%. Sounds like im in a wind tunnel, but at least it only idles at 37 degrees now.
