Running temps for the 5800 and Ultra?
Just a quick check, what sort of temps do all you FX owners get for the core and card while running 2d and 3d?

I average 60 on 2d and 70 after a 3d mark

Thats about average for Geforce FX Ultra's.

On my Ultra, I'm running about 46 in 2D and 52-55 in 3D. What kind of other cooling do you have in your system?

A coolermaster on the xp, and 3 case fans... but at the moment i'm connecting a pipe from my room AC through a filter and strategically positioning it through the side of my case, i'll ty and get a pic of it.

Yeah but the Ultra as a far noiser fan and runs 100Mhz faster.

45 in 2d... about 50 3d... but i added another fan on the back heatsink

57 ish, it actually runs COOLER when playing games usually. Im running 3 case fans.

I have been running one of my FX Ultras without the FX flow fan, and instead using a 120mm next to the copper fins near the rear of the card. Playing ut2003 in windowed mode for 30mins it averages 66 C. Idle 45 C. But the copper fins have a small surface area and my 120mm does not have a side intake of fresh air. With the Zalman ZM80C1-HP that's supposed to be out in 3 weeks and a side intake with a quiet fan should drop temps below stock.

I am running 5800, added an extra small video card cooler (fan plus heatsink) on top of the back heatsink, case open.
average 50 in 2D
average 66 in 3D
room temp. around 25
i have seen 77 just after game when the case is closed.

If you wanted to add a cooler to it, this would work Alpha PAL153U
