My card runs in the low 70'sC while playing CRYSIS. I just lost my signal and had to reboot. Why didn't EVGA put some descent cooling on this card. I wonder if they get kickback when we are forced to go buy after market coolers; like I'm going to do right now? Such BS!

Load temps of 70's are not "way too hot", whats your room temperature & Fanspeed?

If you want some lower temps i suggest to up the fanspead to 80% and leave the window open for a "fresh" breeze :)

Those temps are not exceeding the safe operating temps.. You are not going to fry your card running at those temps. Everyone freaks when they see temps like that. Most video cards nowadays run really hot and can handle temps up to 100c or higher (although you don't want it that high). Under load my 8800 gts is in the 80's /shrug.

I run the fan at 100% period! Heatsink is just a cruddy design. I installed a better fan and now it runs at 64C during crysis

Nice, those are excellent temps now http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/images/icons/icon14.gif
With what program do you measure your "Load" temp? Generally running games or AtiTool artifact scanner don't give true temps.

For true load temps: http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/ , run it with Stability Test at resolution of 1024x768 (Non Fullscreen) with x2 MSAA, it's the only true way to find the highest load temps imo :P, Leave it run 30 mins or so.

70's for playing crysis is probably lower than most people get... lol.

I'll give it a whirl. Down to 61C running CRYSIS; added another fan.

tHE FUR THING SAYS WINDOWS 32 BIT. i'M RUNNING vISTA 64BIT; WILL IT WORK?

run crysis with settings on all high, that will really load the gpu. atitool and all those other programs don't use HDR while maxing out the VRAM etc...

thats VERY cool on the stock cooler... i get 75*C load with a HR-03 plus on it... mine is really at the bottom of the pile when it comes to heat.... it overheats like crazy on the stock cooler

Nice :D as you can see huge difference between Crysis and that Stress tool,
more than 10*c.

Its mainly for showing true load temps under max stress, great for checking overclock stability.

I'm gonna try a couple of these on my ultras (lee63) http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zalman/ZM-VF1000LED

I run all on very high and it goes to 62C with my added fans.(nana2)

Yes it really works good.
