Here are some more "wonderful" screens with some info displayed.

Even the menu gets my card hotter than most cards at full load.

Haha umm...I am looking at the GTX 570(fermi) for my primary. I'll think about buying your GTX 460 EE for PhysX and folding It wouldnt be until summer though.

Try changing the Thermal Compound and use Artic Silver 5. I did this on my old 5770's and the temps drop by 5-10 Celsius. Your results may vary though.

Just posted on FB an alternative for that 570. Cheaper and just as fast! And yeah if I were to send you my 460, you could buy this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130570 and just send it to me. My 460 would be a lot cooler if you were to use it as PhsyX and folding instead of primary and you wouldn't have a problem.

And a possible re-seating since that's supposed be the main problem with all the EE's until they fixed it. Thanks for the advice!

94C may be "normal" for a stout card like a 470 or 480, but I don't think the 460 is built to endure that for extended periods of time.
Maybe this is why my card keeps downclocking, OC'd my temps are usually > 70 in games and I only downclock when gaming. I've folded and boinc'd on this card for 2 days straight without a downclock, but now that I think about it my temps never went above 70 during that.

No, don't use AS5, that TIM is outclassed and outdated by now. It takes a whole week 24/7 to cure, and you have to replace it every 8-12 months because it starts losing efficiency and temps start going up. Plus it has capacitance, which means if you're sloppy and accidentally put it over a small cap, you could short the component, be it motherboard, GPU, etc. Oh, and the alternatives are better at cooling.

Use Arctic Cooling MX-4.

For a recent discussion about the TIM topic, go here.

Here for a comparative review.

Ooh, preeeetttty!

Does it do anything wrong at stock clocks? Or just overclocks. Stock clocks = fine, then you really can't complain, since it works as it should.

I bet if you re-tim it and reseat it properly you'll get normal temps of about 65-75 C gaming.
