Hi there,

My GTX reaches max temperatures of about 75C whilst gaming, ( I've a 1-slot PCI exhaust fan installed below it ), I feel a blast of air coming out of the vent in the PCI-expansion bracket for the exhaust fan, but I feel practically no air for the vent of the 8800GTX even when gaming, the metal is pretty hot though. :p

Anything fishy about that? :P

Thanks

I've had a few dual slot design cards now and I've never been able to feel any air coming out of the fan slot at all for any of them. I gave up worrying about it a while back and nothing bad has ever happened. Does make me wonder if the design works though.

A load temp of 75c for a GTX is fine! ..... you could always up the fan speed a little if your not happy!

I agree wtih ATOJAR, that load temp is nothing to worry about.

Yup - same here. Ditto on the temps and the apparent lack of airflow out the vent. No problems though....all is fine.

Your temps are indeed fine. Nothing to worry about.

also, put the SIDE of your hand horizontally at the back of the 8800 GTX's cooler. If you're running a graphics intensive game or application, you WILL feel the heat (assuming your house isn't a sweltering 70C).

If you do this right, you will feel the heat coming off your card. It's hard to feel any airflow while the fan is running @ stock speeds though. I guess that's a good thing.
