My temps are the exct same- 63 while surfing and around 68-72 while gaming under heavy load, but these high temps are normal for the next gen cards. Also, i have a 415/1105 OC.

Remember BFG 6800GT temps might be a bit higher than other brand GTs because the BFG is OC'd 20mhz out of the box.

Sorry guys, but your not doing this correctly. Go here---> http://www.daionet.gr.jp/~masa/rthdribl/ and download this tool. Open your temp display, and at the same time run the tool in the largest windowed mode you can without covering up your temp display. Run the tool for 10-15 min. then post your temps. The reason why I say your doing it incorrectly, is once your done close the tool, and watch your temp drop by 10c in 5 seconds. Thats why you need to take the reading in real time. You will find your cards are running a lot hotter then you think.

EDIT: GravY's may be correct (looking at the 30c case temp), but if he hasen't already done so, he should do what I described above as well.

Thats exactly the reason i am not gonna overclock until i get my waterblock. Pretty cheap insurance if you ask me - about $50 or so. BFG told me they will still offer the warranty on a water cooled card

If your 55c in 2D you will be much higher then 64c in 3D. Run the tool and you will see.

Highest in 3d was 77C.

My card seems to be settling down a bit.

Highest in 3d for me was 77 as well.

It's kinda an eye opener when running the temp monitor in real time :wtf:

Or if people have been using RivaTuner for years, you'd have a real time Clock and Temp monitor a long time ago...

Actually, what I mean is having both the utility and the temp on the screen at the same time. A lot of people post temps by quickly closing a 3D application, then looking at the temp display. What they don't realize is by time they look their GPU has already dropped by 5-7c. Doing it the way I described above really shows how hot its getting.

72c is the highest I've seen with my Ultra.

The waterblock is working well on my BFG 6800 GT. After 15 minutes of rthdribl, the highest temp was 58.

Wow, I'm kinda surprised it's even that high. I would think it would be a little cooler? What is the temp of the water, entering and leaving the cooler HX (Delta T)

I don't know the water temps entering and leaving. However, there was a 10 deg. C improvement in idle temps over stock cooling and close to 20 C at load.

No OC stock cooling.
