have you tried changing the heatsink on the 6600 for a zalman and some arctic silver - it sounds suspiciously like the heatsink is a poor contact ?

my stock xfx cooler idles at 50+ o/c'd to 400/1100, but is lucky to go over 40c with the zalman, and 70 at max

the shazbat is the agp 8800 i believe, but why bother- it'd be easier to upgrade the whole shebang to a conroe for less $
