Default Re: Geforce 6800 GT Overheat?

Well, you have it clocked pretty high, and I'm assuming your using a stock HS. So I would say that's definately within the normal range. You also might want to blast some air in the heatsink and clear any dust build-up.

If you are still using a stock heatsink, you might want to try a 3rd party HS from Zalman or Arctic Cooling. otherwise at those clock speeds your going to "fry" your GPU out in 1 year or less
