I have just got a GeForce 7900 GT with the stock Nvidia cooler. I have put some AS5 on it. I was just wondering what sort of clocks I should be looking at? I have been running it at default for a two weeks now and it runs at 40 degrees idle and about 57/58 on load.

Also would you recomend that I chnage the stock cooler?

If you are going to overclock your card ,then I would recomend a better HSF ,if not then the factory one on it should be fine.

60-75 if you volt mod it. If you go sli, temps WILL become to high without aftermarket cooling. I've got a silencer5rev3 and a Zalman vf700cu, both are more than enough, even in sli. From experience, overclocking can permanatly damage these cards...

What is your defaults clocks since they have so many different ones.

Well I have decided to just get myself a Zalman VF900-CU to replace the stock cooler, as it has started to wine and I have not even overclocked it yet.

So once i get this fitted I will have a play with the speeds :D

If you didnt buy the vf900 yet, i would suggest the thermalright v-1 ultra... its a much better cooler and you can slap 2 fans on it.

I have the Zalman VF900-Cu and it works great it is not large like some of the aftermarket heatsinks and it looks good ,at least when you buy better looking heatsinks then them blue one ,but it keeps the 7900GT cool even at heavy loads .I am sure thermalright v-1 keeps it cool but the Zalman VF 900-Cu is easier to install and is not a large.and even on high it is pretty quiet.

Yup, I plan on getting a Zalman VF900 as well. My card idles at 56' C on stock cooling, which is the original eVGA cooling solution, bare memory.
