Traditionally, we monitored temperatures using EVGA Precision (based on RivaTuner).
Gainward GeForce GTX 460 1024MB GS-GLH
Inno3D Geforce GTX 460 OC 1GB
Leadtek WinFast GTX 460 768MB
MSI N460GTX Cyclone 1GD5/OC
Palit GeForce GTX 460 Sonic Platinum 1024MB GDDR5
MSI's Zalmanesque cooler wins, Zotac's solution lags behind a little. Maybe its low speed and that it cools both the core and the memory chips results in the higher overall temperature. Solutions from Palit and Gainward do a great job cooling down those noticeably overclocked cards. In general, the cooler performance is quite nice, the temperature doesn't exceed 80°C (except for that of the Zotac's card).
