Hi all, Im worried about the temp of my XFX 8800GTX. The temps are too high and when the gpu are full load the temps are 85.
the 8800 GTX running so good, its impressive but the temps are too high in load system.

It,s a bug? Its a bad resistor ?

Thanks a lot:)

My 8800 GTX SLI setup , temp under load is never above then 78c. How is the Airflow in your Case ?

If you have a wrong resistor, look here

Thanks a lot, I will check the resistor, I hope that the resistor will be correct.:( .

My case is a Xaser III and the frontal fan are in Hd place, maybe the fans not work properly because the Hd are in the middle of Gpu and the fans.
The Asus A8N32 is soo hot and the chipset are in same place of the pci-e plug :( .

Thanks:)

These g80 GTX have huge Heatsinks which is sweet and does a good job of cooling the entire card but they require fairly good airflow in the case.

This weekend I upgrade to an Antec P180B case. On top of the 3 120mm case fans it comes with I added 2 more plus the 120mm CPU fan. Thats six 120mm fans in the case with 1 blowing directly onto the side of the 8800GTX. Even so, my card is now idling at 72 degrees and easily hits 89 degrees in games. I thought this case was supposed to have superior cooling, but so far its actually warmer than my old no-name case, although the Antec is slightly (not much) quieter. What the heck? Any ideas on keeping this thing cooler?
