you would think by now they would come out with a vacuam heat extractor rather than using a fans to blow heat around would make sence what do you guys think ?

My two GTS 480 cards usually get up to about 92 degrees C in games. the top one always idles hotter. Right now it is 78 and the bottom one is 67.

Im thinking about getting an NZXT Phantom 410 case because it has much better cooling than my old Gigabyte. 3DAurora case

Yea, typical, but when it starts going over 100c you really want to take measures to cool it.

it doesnt usually happen, but the top card got up to 102 during a cutscene type of thing in Skyrim the other day.

I would really like to get the new case, but I dont know if it will be worth the $220 or so to get it. The actual case is only $150, but the postage is so expensive.
