Default Re: 8800GTX Bios + overclock safe?

Ouch! Thats frick'n hot on the GPU over 90c!

Btw, make sure your GPU fan speeds are set to 75% or higher. Not too high or else it will be very audible! I had RivaTuner 2.0 accidentially kept the Fan to 60% of its max and damn was limited to 652/1016 and my GPU temps were 56c idle|75c load! Now look at my sig when I kept the GPU Fan @ 85%! Much better overclock and temps + more room to go. Temps in my lab are between 17-22c.
