LOL @ Chris. Nobody really needs to OC for CSS. Graphic cards can handle more on that now, back in the day, it was stressful lol.

My card seems to be getting really hot as of late.. peaking at 88 degrees in l4d2! 90+ in GRID as well.. I have pretty good airflow in my case, and even with a side fan my temps won't change. I haven't seen it idle under 40 in a while, and this is all with fan speed at 100%

Any of you get similar temps?

I should mention the ambient temp is usually ~75*F

Also, use somekind of pressured air to blow majority of the dust away. It helped for me.



Also pcnuttie, that picture is outdated, so those Sata cables (which were the only ones available and at disposal) are already used accordingly.

@LiLChris:
Lol! No, didn't need to oc the card for cs:s - the card ain't that bad! :-D But, since I was oc'ing the system and played cs:s at that time - and I would gain an increase in fps - then it speaks for it self ;-)

So have you considered folding?
That will take advantage of your OC unlike CS:S

Read my sig, help the cause, and help OCN!

Here is my personal guide, auto installation. Very simple http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...gpu-guide.html
