Nvidia partner warns users of 9800GX2 heat
We've got our hands on a very interesting piece of information about the upcoming GeForce 9800GX2 card and it looks this these cards will run hot enough to prove to be dangerous if you touch them while in use.
As you can see from the screen shot taken from the quick installation guide of the 9800GX2 card, users are warned not to touch the cooling system of the cards due to the hot surface.

Sooo... no shim protection for the cores, and if touching the 8800GTS was hot after an hour of gaming, then the 9800GX2 should be able to burn you?
At least the heat protection will prove useful at lanparties, no one will be able to steal the card without donning oven mitts.
