Hi!!
I have a Leadtek a400 gt which comes with an impressive copper heatsink but the temps im getting are a bit high.
I would like to know if these temps are safe and normal for this card.

idle
Ambient temp 36C
GPU 51C

Load (after 1h far cry playing)
Ambient temp 51C
GPU 74C

Thanks in advance

Your temps are great. Even lower than most 6800GT's

NVIDIA GPUs are rated past 120C. Your temps are fine.

Only one punctuation mark at a time, please.

Far as temps go, those GPUs can withstand a lot. Only when it starts getting into the 90s under load should you think about being concerned.

LMAO. Yeah man I am getting 52 C idle WITH my Zalman vf700cu installed. Those temps are great! Before I had my new cooling on occasion I would get into the 90s load that's where instability starts.
