Default Re: 6600GT - Are you happy?

Under load the card shoots up to 76 degrees on average. I doing something wrong here, or did all the review sites get way better coolers than me with their cards?
I have virtually the exact same temps with my Leadtek 6600gt (540/1000). A little dissapointing but the card handles all games and benchmarks without lockups, reboots.
My case-cooling is not that great though with 1 intake + 1 exhaust fan, temp at 35-39 C. Gonna improve airflow and get that temp down.

Other than that it's been great.
