Default Re: Geforce 6800 GT Overheat?

84' C is way high. My 6800 GT idled in the low 40's and when the dust blocked the heatsink under the cover, it would get into the mid 50's. Mine never hit 84' under load even. Only thing I can think of is, you must not have very good case air flow/ventilation. Plus, mine had the eVGA copper heatsink, but that wouldn't make a 30' difference.
