Default JUst installed a NV Silencer to my 6800gt... help.. hotter

WIth the stock cooler is was 59 degrees while idle...

Now that I've put on the NV Silencer Rev 3, its 71 degrees while idle...

Havent tried a game yet...

But I'm almost positive i installed it right...

memory and nvidia chip is covered by the thermal paste, the fan is on, the back heatsink is on...

I dunno.. this isn't right tho... was hoping for 10 degrees lower not higher...

The only thing i can think of is the plug... has a Y cable, with like a 4 pin or 3 ping plug... the one with 3 pins went into my 6800gt... the other part is doing nothing... I'm assuming its because different 6800gt's use different kinds correct? or is that suppose to be plugged in too?

EDIT: in the 80's while in game... temp was in the 70's -stock. I notice when i leave game, the temperature shoots down a lot faster... but its shooting back down to a higher temperature. ERRR
