Default Re: Modding my old EVGA GeForce 8800 GT video card's fan to blow heat from the PC cas

Wow. Your temps are pretty high... My CPU idling temp for Core #0 is 29C with a slight overclock and aftermarket cooling. My GPU temp 47C idle. How many intake and exhaust fans do you have? That could be the issue, maybe even dust or constricted airways. If you have fans blowing and sucking in every which direction, you'll create a turbulence inside the PC. So, ineffectively, the cooling will not really be cooling anything at all. Have you tried rearranging any wiring, fans, or dusting?

Edit: I'm using Everest to monitor my temps.

I don't want to get you drunk, but, ah, that's a very fine Chardonnay you're not drinking.
