The EVGA GTX 275 has a very powerful cooling fan. When the GTX 275 is new it does draw in a good amount of cool air into the heatsink to properly cool the GTX 275 video card. As you see in the photos below, over time it brings not only a good amount of air onto the card, but dust, hair, lint to. This dust and pet hair etc will eventually block, limit the cooling capabilities of the card. Running the temperatures much higher on the GTX 275, or any video card.
