Currently running heaven benchmarks. Temps are staying well under the 6970s and I've got the fan settings on stock. (The 6970s were set on a wicked curve and sounded like jet engines under load)....

They replaced them with R7 370s, I looked into them, they are a bit better that the 6970s, nothing high end, but 10-15 FPS average increases.
