so i'm just wondering what kind of temps you gtx 280 owners are getting.
Everything stock 40% fan speed (also stock) 615 / 1350 shader / 2214 memory temps are at 76 c while folding its usually not that hot after a 3d 06 run but its been folding for 20 or so hours now..(ambient temp is 22 set on the thermostat but its a few degrees hotter in here maybe 26-28)
when i crank the fan speed up 75+ % temps are usually in the 60s gaming etc
the highest overclock i have tried so far, with no problems 670 / 1500 shader /2300 memory and temps were 72 c @ 80% fan speed during 3dmark 06 scenes
that was yesterday on xp 64bit which was nice because riva tuner was working to oc on the beta drivers, i am now back to 64bit vista and 177.39 drivers
i read on the nvidia site max temps are over 100 degrees but i wouldn't wanna see anything like that.
what do you guys think, i have an empty hard drive cage in my antec 900 in the middle lined up with the video card and the airflow is pretty good i dont think there is anything else i can do to improve cooling.
