The guys managed to get the machine to reach a nice 9428 in 3Dmark05 which is a good score for a single card. We would like to see 10K from an air cooled card but we just could not crank it that high.
You actually want to water-cool this card as its stock cooling can get noisy and water cooling is close to soundless. It will take GPU temperature from 90 Celsius to a much better 60 Celsius while the PCB will heat to 40 degrees only.
Those guys manage to get to 725MHz too, which is a nice score for a card that already runs warm, not with water anyhow.
