man now i'm starting to worry .. i can get a E-VGA 280 today but after reading all this i really cant decide
Well, I think I either got a bad card, or I ruined it by using those stupid power cord adapters. don't use t hose, get a PSU with one 8-pin PCI-e and at least one 6-pin. Even with it's overheating problems, the card runs games phenominally. It is a damn powerful card

Are there any overheating issues with GTX 260's at all, or is it just limited to the GTX 280s? I'm currently debating whether to go 2x 260 or 2x 280, after I buy P5N-D mobo.

I've not seen anyone with problems with a 260.

My brand new BFG GTX 280 OC was getting to 110 C and shutting itself down a few minutes after launching any 3D app. My case has good airflow. Even so, I had to rip out the heatsink and cooler and slap on a Danger Den waterblock to watercool this card AND underclock it slightly to default GTX 280 speeds in order to get it to run within an acceptable temperature range. It's working fine now, stable as a rock after hours of Crysis gaming sessions and leaving Furmark running overnight, but it's obvious there are major heat buildup issues with these cards if you're going to use air cooling.

That's a band-aid you've used... The card shouldn't overheat like that under any circumstances... You had to use water-cooling to prevent a faulty card from shutting down...

Default Re: Do you get overheating issues with your GTX 280 ?

I'm from Nvidia's SLI Zone forums and was directed to this thread by a member.

I voted: Yes; EVGA Standard Edition.

Symptoms:

- Crashes during Crysis (from display driver to spontaneous reboot or a pratically unreadable BSOD with lots of vertical artifact bars).

- High core temps (duh) pretty fast (only witnessed ~90C when I was there and then quickly stopped the game as the automatic fan override kicked in @ 95% but wasn't able to do much about the temp (read: nothing)).

I have a CM690 case with 4 case fans plus mobo NB fan (I use no undeside fan as it would mess up the airflow I recon) and trust me when I say the casing feels cold as the arctic. GPU fan speed is @ 55% through RT. Idles @ ~40C but load is just ... well ... you know or I wouldn't be here ...

Tomorrow I'm getting an EVGA replacement and if it does the same I'm going XFX.

Funny thing; it worked fine for about a week (~77C in Crysis) and then all hell broke loose...

What should be good load temps during let's say Crysis?

EDIT: Just put the fan back @ stock (40%) to let the automated fan speed control handle it AS IT SHOULD and played Crysis for 10-15 minutes and wham; automatic reboot. I couldn't even see the temp.

I always watercool my graphics cards because I don't tolerate loud fan noises in any of my computers, so I was going to watercool it anyway. But yes, I see your point. Then again, it's working flawlessly now, so as far as I'm concerned, the design of the default cooler is at fault - for not providing adequate cooling to the card.
