81 on load is fine,if you have a single slot cooler card.
you can always try upping the fan speed or if the noise bothers you,get a custom cooling solution.

If my load gets above lets say 80, do those little pci card slot coolers do any justice? Also, do aftermarket gpu cooler's void card warranties? I have 30 days to return the card in one piece, haha.
The fan on my card spins up to 100% during POST as well and just like yours does, it settles down once XP loads. I think it's just the nature of the beast.

As for your temps, the PCI slot coolers, if I recall correctly, normally only blow warm air out the back of your case. At least, that's what I had read when I was looking at them as a source of cooling. Now if you're looking at installing one directly below your video card you'd want it pull cold air in from the outside. Otherwise having your card fan blowing air onto the heatsink and your PCI fan pulling away from that fan wouldn't be doing a whole lot of good.

You could always get one, crack it open, flip the fan and you'd have an intake. I've toyed with that idea as well...just don't plan on returning it if it dies.

For temps I tend to make 90 degrees the absolute max but tend to cut it off when it reaches low 80's just to be safe. I thought the cooling solution was supposed to be pretty good on these ones...larger fan, etc?

I have almost the same card exceot it's the Asus 9600 GT and my idle temps out of the box where 40c idle and 50c load. I have Oc'ed mine a little to match some of the higher clocked 9600's out ther 650/700 core, 1625/1735 shader and 1800/1900 mem and my idle temps are 44c idle and 53c load. Maybe get some silver therm and reseat ur fan.

Thanks for the posts all...

Well, I am not sure whats up with the card now. I decided to load up vista ultimate today and download the newest rivatuner 2.07. So I did.

Riva states that the card sits idle at 48 C. Which is weird because XP stated that it was like 53-55 idle. I have yet to load up crysis but I will once I get back from work. I may invest in a small antec slot cooler and flip the fan around.

I used to have an old 6600gt with an aftermarket cooler on it, but it sucked. It was some kind of Zalman cooler. But that was a while ago, so im a little cautious about coolers.... If I do decide to get a aftermarket cooler I take it that would void your warranty once you take off the stock cooling unit?

Thanks

I have a BFG 9600GT OC, and it idles at 38-40c in the newest riva. I have fan speeds set at 100% all the time. I do know GPU's can usually handle higher temps then CPU's, I wouldn't worry to much. Maybe the thermal paste wasn't burnt in yet.

thats seems a bit too hot. play around with the fans. Mines at about 30 degrees idle in a resonably cold house. but i cant play any games since im having problems with it, so wouldnt be able to tell you anything more.

i would say 40-50 idle is fine. and around 60-70 under load is fine, but considering you only playe crysis for 15mins i reckon it could get hotter esp as your case temp will start to rise.

Ive been playing COD4 for around an hour or so. Temps are running at 60 C at load while playing, so thus far it seems like the card is running at around normal game temps. COD4 with this card is awesome, it brings so much more to the game... Now back to it!

phat, i have the same pny 9600gt. if you take the stock cooler off wipe off that gunk they call thermal and replace it with some as5 or shin etsu you will have much lower temps.

when i had it running, i was doing 38c idle and 61c load
