Re: Hot spot 6600xt vs 6600

Then you should contact XFX tech support for them to explain the difference, AMD supplies basic chip/board to aftermarket makers who then may make additions/alterations to the base specifications as well as using different component models (usually within AMD spec.) such as caps/mosfets/pwm/etc......, also some make/models have their own better cooling.  

This is why you see different makes/models with varying specs/performance in benchmarks etc..........

Hotspot temp is the hottest part of the gpu die,so the difference is  from aplication paste,base of the gpu cooler,a bit higher tdp.

At 85C hotspot is ok,after 100C i will be worried and think to replace paste etc.

Even with watercooled gpu hotspot is hard to keep bellow 70C.
