Isn't that the point? Check if your card overheats?

"Lets see here, if I run Crysis at V.High, my card reaches 95C and artifacts. I'll just run it at medium, 800x600. There, only 80C now, so my card works perfect!"

Just a quick update...

I set my fan to 100% on my GTX 260, launched FurMark and set res to 1280x960 and let it go for a while.

Temp finally stabilized at 75C - and that's with a decent overclock on the card.

So no complaints here at all with the GTX 260 or its cooling.

Use the latest Everest 4.60. What are you VRM temps? Furmark pounds your VRM temps more than your core temps.
