Default Whats the right temperature range for GTX280OC

My runs at 60C when idle (fan speed at 40), which seems a bit too high. But it works fine during games, the temperature is around 85-90.

So i'm wandering what is the normal temperature range for this card? i used to get 75 when idle before i switched to a new case with better air-flow.

Those temps are ok

You can up the fan speed to lower the temperature using Rivatuner or EVGA Precision

EVGA Precision doesnt seem to let me alter my fan speed

but i think temps are ok anyway

here is a SS of my Precision SW (idle) on my 280 SSC=

You need version 1.3 of EVGA precision for the fan control to work.

Although I leave mine at 40% in 1.3 I can move the slider if I wish.

Just download the latest version.
