Default Re: Geforce 6800 GT Overheat?

the stock heatsinks on the 6800 GT's just suck by nature. they're small and aluminum, enough said

i ran mine at 400/1100 with the stock heatsink and it hit 89 C max, and even at stock speeds peaked at 84 C...... i'd say your temperatures are normal, because the fact is, is that the heatsink just sucks, i didn't even have dust in mine before i decided to swap it for this Zalman vf-700, because those temperatures just didn't seem good for my card.
