Default overheating gainward 6800 GT no gold

Hi, all I m new here, i have the Gainward 6800GT no gold and I was trying to set up the Zalmar 700cu from my 6600gt. After setting the Zalmar I can't boot up the system, my motherboard check said is the video card, so after a couple hours I went back to the red heatsink with the 2 60mm fans. Now, after unintalling EXpertool the card with latest drivers from nividia is overheating to 78 and 50 IDE. I check volt in the bios and is set to auto, before the card used to overclock 410/1200 now is hot in defaults setting....

thanks

Check if the thermal pads are still ok, or if they have accidentily moved.

Why the change btw ? Mine cools great. Ok... it's not a supersilent card.. but
I've never seen my card go over 60 degrees celcius.

I have the Golden Sample 6800GT ... underfull load for long periods of time it hits close to 75c to 78c and idles at 50c. It has for almost 2 years now on the stock duel cooling setup. Those temps seem alright.
