A few minutes ago, I decided to alt-tab from my game to look at temps, and my GTX 285 was at 87c eek.gif and this is with the fan at 100%. Tell me this isn't normal, that is ridiculous heat.

seems a little high. Check for dust in the fan, maybe reapply TIM while you are at it.

TIM replace? blown out the dust from the fins ?

Have you done those two lately? My 5850 had some clogged spots on teh fins after a good clean it dropped my temp by 7 degrees.

I got the card today, first thing I did was replace TIM. I had to repair the card, before that it was fresh from a RMA, so no dust at all.
I don't think it should be that hot at 100% fan, its only 185W TDP, my 260 was 175 and had a crap cooler and never went above 75.

I shudder to think of the VRM temps.

Maybe check the mounting of the cooler itself. Take off the shroud too unless the fan is attached to it.

its normal I got a gigabyte GTX285 2GB and it getting to those temps while gaming my room temp on the summer are about 28-32C but even on winter when its cool 10-20C its still getting near that temps.

on OCCT I can reach 99-101C with 100% fan after 10-15 min of test...

Good airflow, two 90cfm fans up top on my radiator, two 70cfm intakes blowing directly towards the card, one right under the card's fan.
I shudder about the VRM temps too, the 55nm GTX 200 cards don't have temp sensors on them, or cooling.

I had three of them and all of them ran hot. Replacing the TIM may help, but I am a person that believes you shouldnt have to do that. It really sucks when you spend hundreds of dollars for a product that they didnt perfect before releasing it. One of the reasons why I changed to 5870's, cause they run much cooler. I do miss some features from Nvidia, which is why I am looking at going back with a GTX 580 X 2. LOL
