I dont have any mods or changes on the videocard and the ambient of my room is usually 26 Deg/C which is comfortable, but gets to 29 when I leave the computer on. The output temp of the BFG is in the 60's and its the GPU core temp of 72 that I see with NVidia tools at idle. I have a new case with a rear slot for ventilation and the side of the case has one also next too the fan intake. I am thinking of making some special cooling equipment with forcing cool air into the case (filtered of course).
Both power cables are fitted to my BFG 9800 GX2 and it pumps out 60 Deg/C I thought it was overloading it or something. Nothing is modded...yet. So i guess this is norm temp. I will be working on cooling it next week.
Thanks for your replies.
