8800 and 3.8 GHZ E6600 Cooling

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
My tuniq tower sucks like hell, and my 8800 is idling at 72C .... I can't play SupCom like this.... can sombody help me with my 8800 cooling and then we'll worry about E6600, for now the highest it goes is 67C ... thats scary... i remember it went up to 76 and it shut down my PC lol... (but its fixed with some super glue on those freaked up thumbscrews. So can sombody recommend me a good VGA cooler or atleast a good PCI slot blower? I had this crappy ass one from newegg and the damn fan blew off from the baring... lol...

If both your video card and the CPU run that hot (esp. with the Tuniq, one of the best air coolers there is), you need to look at your case airflow.

An 8800 on stock cooling will run 80C full load at the most... mine runs at the higher 70s with Core 690/mem 2240. My CPU under the tuniq runs 55C at most at 3.69GHz.

Really, something else is amiss in your case. It isn't the GPU nor the CPU cooling, but most likely your case airflow.

you could try using ntune to increase the fan speed on your 8800 to it's max. It is very loud, but when I have the side on my case I can drop temps by 7-8C by doing this.

Folks, we all know the cooling on the 8800 is fine. Think outside the stock cooling on the card.

Both the GPU and CPU run hot... with a Tuniq for crying out loud. Definately there is a case air flow issue in my opinion.

What are your intake and exhaust fans of your case?

Hey Chozart, thanks for helping once again, I have a silverstone exhaust blowing full speed 120mm fan at the upper back... LOL here... i tried to explain

| |
| << FAN |
| |
| FAN >> |

Basically at the back tere is a 120mm FAN fullspeed, and at the front there is a 80 mm fan that sounds like a jet, so i put that at around 40%... and directly what its blowing on is a 8800 GTS and the tuniq fan seems to be taking air from those 3 left alone cd drive bays or w/e it is lol... u understand what i'm saying?

my **** is all screwed up... only 2 fans running... a exhaust of 110CFM and a intake of like ... i unno... 20 CFM? lol, thats messed up isn't it? shud i get a 3 cd drive slot intake fan?

You live in Miami. How hot is it there? Ambient temperatures play a huge role in over all system temperatures.

How much do you have to spend? If I were you, and it's as hot as it sounds, I would recommend a few things:

Place your PC where it's getting good natural air flow. Near a window, near a floor fan, under your ceiling fan, out in the open. Putting it in a small compartment will hinder the air flow.

Consider water cooling. It sounds like it's really hot where you are. If it's really hot, you should consider water cooling.

There's definitely something amiss with your system though. If it's not ambient temperatures, then I don't know what's wrong, but something IS wrong.

Actually, I've read around that most people have 8800s that idle above 60 degrees celcius. 72 Degrees isn't bad at all, just just have to turn up your GPU fan's duty cycle up a tiny bit. Does wonders. Under load** my card doesn't go up beyond 80 anymore.


** By load I mean ATITool's 3d view.

whats your budget for cooling? it'll help us alot, thats if you wanna get something other than air cooling.

imo, it's kinda hard to get any CPU to 3.8Ghz stable on air.. unless both the CPU and heatsink are lapped, and you have some pretty good air flow/room temps..

Right now, your main concern should be your CPU temps.. have you tried re-applying the therml paste? just a small grain 'o rice?
