MSI GTX980 Gaming Review
We're including more than usual in our temperature graph because of how relatively warm the MSI GTX980 Gaming has performed. Admittedly there is little to choose between any of the cards, but it's a hair warmer in both stock and overclocked trim. Only the Strix with automatic fans is warmer of the Maxwell cards.
Whilst the temperatures might be higher, the power draw is actually the lowest of the GTX980s we've tested. Further emphasising what a refinement the Maxwell core is over the Kepler one.
