EDIT: Is this thread just for GTX280's?
hi and thanks
yes i was using the fan at 100% speed, at idle my card was at 45° celsius, so that was good, but once i launched crysis and played for 5 min temp raised to 105°, same with call of juarez dx10, as soon as i stopped those games, temps dropped immediately to 70°, i mean just 1 second later not more, then went back to 45° few secs after.
i first thought that was a faulty temp sensor and that my card could not that hot so while gaming i touched the card and it almost burned my finger !
