So, I recently upgraded my graphics card to an NVIDIA 9600 and I'm having a cooling problem
First, I'm stupid, so I can't get the side of my case back on, that could be a problem. But to make up for that, I put 2 5 inch fans pointing right on the card, to keep it cool. Today I was playing COD4 and i looked at my temp. moniter and it read 117F. Isn't that way too high? How can I keep the temp down, I need more ideas...

Please help.

That's not too hot. That is 47C, so your looking at about 23C more until you get "Too hot". Nice temps.

117 degrees F is an alright temperature?
It got 126 with 1 fan on it...

It's really not going to hurt it?

We speak celsius around these parts
Start to worry when your temps are 85°c/185°F
