if you haven't cleaned the card in a long time i suggest spraying compressed air into the card to clear out dust
I know those are high, believe me I've been through many different videocards and aftermarket heatsinks before landing on this 8800gts. This card doesn't have an aftermarket heatsink and it gets pretty hot even after the AS5 application, but I know that GPU's can handle 100C+ temps and still be fine. As of now, there are no artifacts so I'm fairly sure my GPU overclocks are stable, and I have Orthos Prime Tested my CPU/RAM and they're both stable. I do not have a multimeter and will probably not invest in one (I'm going to college soon and will only use a laptop), so the PSU is definitely a factor. Software readings on the vrails are inaccurate but then again, this PSU is getting a bit old. I'll try the fan method tomorrow and we'll see if there's still errors.
