I've always liked the Vapor-X series of cards. Nice to see it on the bottom of the idle power consumption graph too!

Haha yeah, that was a good thing to see. Interesting how the overclocked idle made it jump to the other end of the graph!

The temperatures are probably the most impressive thing to me, at least.

I was too - especially since the Vapor-X cards usually have absurdly low 2D clock speeds. Do you have any idea why it jumped even at idle?
