Yes it is decreasing life span. A few years? Just use rivatuner and turn the fan speed up.

98% of the internet population has a Myspace. If you're part of the 2% that isn't an emo bastard, copy and paste this into your sig.

Do you notice artifacting and/or freezes?


Be a man. Chances are, you won't die; but, if you do, at least you won't make the same mistake twice.

It will just deacrease its lifetime.. make sure you turn up your fan speed to atleast %80 in Rivatuner

Do you have the first revision of the 8800GT with the smaller fan???

I find it funny when people talk about decreasing the life-span of a computer part--especially on an overclocking website. As if any of us actually use our parts until they die...

Nothing really they can survive until like 100C. Not only that you should consider better airflow or even reseating the cooler.

The cards don't throttle down till 100C or so, 84C is not at all unusual for an 8800GT at very high load.

As for reducing it's life, that's relative. A GPU at 84C won't last as long as one at 70C, and one at 40C won't last as long as one at 0C.

Even at 84C, the card will probably last years.
