Default Re: Gainward FX5900 question

64C for 3D gaming is good. 64C for 2D is rather hot, but not device threatening. GeForce FX GPU maximum operating temprature is 140C.

That being said, you may want to reseat the heatsink if you put it on. An NVIDIA white paper claimed that every 10C drop in junction temperature doubled the lifetime of the GPU.
