#3 I cant see sinking about $40.00 into cooling this card when its not really worth much.
#4 does anyone have a suggestionnthat is not related to heal or temp, last time it happened i alt tabbed out to check the HW monitor and my gpu was 650c anyway, i know it will drop quick and all but 80 was always normal max temp , and in a thread a while ago everyone said it was a normal tempo not to worry about it.
johnny 5 need more input
1)Yeah, but a lot of the times they skimp on the fan and that hurts the temps
2)When you exit a game, your GPU's not under load anymore. That's why it drops so quickly. My GPU is like 38 degrees idle and 47 degrees load and when I exit a game, it goes back to 38 within 1-2 minutes
3)That heatsink can be used on some of the newer cards out too. Besides, what costs more? A $40 heatsink or a new graphics card?
4)80 degrees is really hot man
