where do u find that option?

Nvidia control panel | Manage 3d settings, halfway down.

There you go. I got a 13% over clock as shown on my sys specs below and I idle at 41-43C. Hottest temps playing intensive games like Crysis, Crysis 2, Metro 2033, The Witcher 2, & Battlefield Beta 79-80C.

Less intensive games like Deus Ex, Portal, LOTR, & Duke Nuke 71-72C.

Glad to see xoleras gave you the right advice and your normal. The 580 isn't like it's 480 brethren and dosen't produce that type of heat. Not sure why some people think it's a hot card. rolleyes.gif Anyway I digress....enjoy her! biggrin.gif

Spot on, man!

Had forgot about that setting, since its at "adaptative" by default.
They must have forgot about it when coding the beta, or something ...
