So...recently I started noticing that my 8800gt video card was making some weird noises while playing insense graphic games such as Mass Effect. It ended up being my fan, so brainstormed what would be causing it. I dusted it out, put some oil in it etc. etc. and there was stilll the same noise coming from it. So...I called bfg and asked them if they could send me another fan but I guess they "have" to do it. They stated it would take about 3 weeks to get another one sent back so..I went out and bought an aftermarket cooler. I bought the Accelero S2 after reading good reviews on newegg. Now, monitoring my temperatures I have seen it hit 100C* after installing the cooler. I even bought some zalman heatsinks to help with the cooling and I have seen no difference. What could be causing this heat? Is there another peice that I should have a heatsink on?
