You will want to keep that card under 80-90 under load at all times..

lol really it will take alot to get it that hot also... and if you by a aftermarket cooler for it it will be even harder.

If you dont want to buy a aftermarket HS the least you can do to help yourself if your worried is remove the HS carefully and clean the stock paste off the chip and replace it with AS5

Yes Reapplying a thermal compound such as AS5 will drop temps quite alot as the manufacturers use very poor thermal compound. Also aftermarket cooling would really help such as the ''NV SILENCER'' just remember you have to get the right revision for your specific card.

yep. you can go from 60c load to low to mid 40's load with a aftermarket cooler and some AS5.

even the as5 alone would drop you 5-10c abouts


remeber if you do just the AS5 it needs to cure first so the results may not be right off the bat... give it a day or two to work itself in

Also something else you should no is that WHEN applying AS5 ( ARCTIC SILVER 5) you should only put it on the GPU chip/die if you get any on the PCB you need to wipe it off as AS5 has micronized silver in it and is conductive and can short out your card if you have a mishap with it.

ok cheers guys, all that will be taken into consideration, as the card is a BFGtech and comes overclocked already wudnt this make a difference to the quality of the paste and stock cooling used?

not realy - the gs is a very overclockable card ive got the xxx version from xfx and ive already overclocked it even more and it doesnt get hotter then 40-50c when at full load so your gonna be pritty fine just keep an eye on it.

in nivida temp setting you can set it to warn you when it reaches a certian temp set it to go off at 70c or something so you know its getting to warm and bring the speeds down and try again.

They will use slightely better cooling solutions than other comapnies as the card is Pre-overclocked... The thermal paste they use in comparison to others namely AS5 will be poor.
