Re: 6800gt heating problem help
yea and sorry for old post here, but this might still be relevant to you.
I had a PNY 6800GT years back with a VF-700 on it (never head of a VF-600) but my idel was about 55C and under full load (FarCry lol) I would hit about 90C with the fan set to 12V not 5V. This was also in a case with 2 92mm fans (remember when 92mm's wern't bad lol). When I changed my case out, I got an MGE Sidewinder with 1 rear 120, front 120 and side 80mm's temps on load went from 90c down to 71c, so id look at airflow, these things need lots of it, but they also run hot as hell.
