I believe all the G80 cores run much hotter than previous series cards. If my gtx was in those temps I wouldn't be worried too much. Although I'm not 100% sure if they would act similar to 8800 cards.

You can adjust your fan speed by using Riva Turner 2

The 8-series card are powerful and are built to endure the stress. I would keep loading temps under 80C. I idle at 60C and load temps of 68C, with 100% fan speed of course.

The 8600GT uses a G84 core. It uses less power than a 8800xxx/G80 core...

I believe that the 8600 cards use the same ram chips that the G80 cards do, so a ram oc should be about the same on both cards if you have adequite cooling...

Pick up an after market cooler for that card and volt mod the core and the ram...

You could realistically hit almost a gig on the core and similar on the mem...

With GOOD cooling that is...

I'm looking into picking up one of these cards myself, for benching and such...

this is the card im looking at.. which one did u get??
good enough

yeah... the G80 abd G84 cores run hot period... there is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more transistors in these cores than anything ever made in the past...

Im thinking about putting together another loop and picking up a water block for this card, volt mod it both the core and the ram, and see how high i can push it!!!

Im kinda excited!!!
