Default Re: What is normal temps for GTX 260?

80c is getting alittle hot, that temp can cause cards to artifact and if you run it like that a lot it can shorten the life of your card, its borderline. Whats happening is the fan is doing ok, but the ambient temps in your case are getting to high, that your cards are trying to cool themselves with hot air, simple way to drop the temps 10-15c or more is to take the side of your case off and put a fan there blowing in, or buy more case fans.

edit just realized its an old thread....
