Re: I solved GTX280 overheating issue
No extra cooling is needed. You can have the air conditioning unit blowing on the card and it would still overheat. Some cards are problematic, it's that simple. People that have exchanged their cards for working ones report 35c of difference. If there was no shutdown from excessive heat, there would be even more difference...
