Default Re: 6600 GT AGP and TEMP

I recently installed a Zalman FS-V7 on my XFX 6600 GT AGP. The ramsinks made it very difficult to seat the cooler, even after more than one adjustment. I still don't think it's properly seated, but my idle temps went from 61c to 50c and I haven't seen anything above 56c under load.

If you're seeing higher temps with the new cooler, maybe it's not properly seated and/or there's not enough thermal paste. The instructions with the Zalman cooler also mentioned cleaning the processor with 90% rubbing alcohol or such, before applying new thermal paste.
