Under load around 70-80 ish MAX. Don't fret, Nvidia runs a lot warmer than ati so if you compare your temps to an ati they should be higher.

Best I can do for you is a screenshot of my email. This was a personally forwarded question and not available on their Site. Do you honestly think I'd recommend you cook your card? Next thing you'll say is a forged the email.

If you look at the tab in your advanced driver menu for temp's it will show you the core threshold. Try to stay as far below that as possible. For my 7800 it is 115c. Good thing my card idle @ 35, lol.

Pollushun is right, that is what Nvidia really states the cards can handle. But by previous experience and looking around, it's better to stay below 100*c, lower is always better. Some cards won't like anything over 80*c, like my 6800GT would start to artifact at 80*c, so it did not like running hot at all. But if your looking 20*c below melting point, about 115-120*c, technically.

my crap needs an update laughingsmiley.gif
