My two 8800GT in SLI run at between 52-55C Idle and around 66-71C at Load stable with overclocks. Even though the card is made to withstand temps at 100C, those temps are still way too hot!

1. You can get an aftermarket GPU fan like the Thermaltake DuOrb.

2. Use RivaTuner and create fan profiles to cool the GPU as it increases in temp while gaming (all the way to 100% fan usage after hitting 65C).

Go here for a guide and pics on how to do it;

http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/3174...-schedule.html

3. Remove stock fan, remove factory thermal paste, use good thermal paste like Arctic MX-2 or Tuniq TX-2 and reseat fan.

4. Mod your case and insert a 120mm fan to exhaust the GPU heat directy out of the case. Refer to my Sig for the Mod instructions.

5. All of the above.

Have you bumped your card or reinserted it? Maybe even just the case? A card should never reach that sort of temperature under normal usage without something physically wrong. Check to make sure the fan is running (but dont lose a finger!). If it is, reseat the heatsink.

Make sure your heatsink is clean. Take it off, clean it(some compressed air is good), reapply some thermal paste and check temps.
And write in english. You don't write like you talk.

Use rivatuner for fan control.

My 8800gt fan died, it reached 110C then pc locked up.

*phew* i was lucky.


You need good airflow too.

Make sure the case has... Some airflow.
Make sure there is some sort of place for the exhaust air to go (side pannel, or ariflow out of the back of the case).
Ambient temperatures?

Try setting fan at 100%. The Accelero S1 is a good cooler.
