Among all usual benchmarks, there is also a PhysX test with FluidMark:

That makes me thinking I should update this benchmark because it was compiled with the summer 2008 PhysX SDK… Will do it shortly!

FurMark test: GIGABYTE GeForce 9800 GT Silence Cell requires a well cooled case. In the following screenshot, we can see how the GPU temperature suddenly goes up when case’s fans are stopped:

When case is cooled, the GPU temperature does not exceed 65°C, but when the case is not cooled, the GPU temperature is very close to 100°C!!!

    Maybe it’s nice for barbecue if you can find a way to reverse gravity, so that it can stick to the cooler 😉

    My my my, 94 degrees?!
    You can’t use this card for overclock if the case is not well cooled.
    In-fact, you can burn your VGA !!
