This biggrin.gif temp are high cause 1.087mv on stock cooling.

Couldn't check the Temps the first couple of times because I had to hardboot, and then the 3rd time it looked as though HWMonitor and GPU-Z got shut down because they were recording temps in the low 90s which I feel was the current temp not the highest reached.

Ah, I see. I assume your airflow is good in that case you have, so unless you have the worst cable management known to man, I wouldn't think that is your issue.

That Artic Cooling Accelero Xtreme II is pretty sick, and f'in huge, if you don't feel like modding, I think that'd be your best bet.

Here's a vid of a guy installing it, he claims to get 46C max under load while OC, he didn't say what his OC was, but I'll assume it's at least 1.087v

I don't know how to embed youtube videos

I'm using a HAF 932, my cable management is not the greatest but by no means should it be causing any problems. I just crashed out of BC2:Vietnam again... The temps on MSI Afterburner were reading a constant 76 Celsius...
I'll be fine during the game, no artifacting or Video lag, however, once the jets fly over that don't really have anything to do with the game, the game starts pausing, the sound goes crazy and then my video card resets?

Let it be known, apparantly PNY GTX 470 is able to hit up 130C.....

Ok All the GTX 400 Series are running hot our cards normal temp. Can go up to 130 C so I don't think there is anything you would be worry about it but if you starts having issues with the card you can email me back

If you're still looking for a free way to cool it down I strapped a fan or two to my reference heatsink a while back and it helped a lot.
Just carefully take off the shroud and stock fan and zip-tie them on so they'll push air through as efficiently as possible and you're good to go.

Let it be known that that guy hasn't the foggiest what he's talking about. I'd like to say that I can't believe he just pulled that number out of thin air just to not have to deal with you, but honestly I've come to expect that kinda crap from CSRs.

According to Nvidia maximum GPU temp is 105C, scroll to the bottom under specifications.

Email that link to him and give him a list of some of your favorite expletives.
