Well you want to keep that card Under 80C mate, your getting the higher temps becasue of your Overclock so Applying better thermal compound namley AS5 will really help as would some better cooling solution such as the ''NV SILENCER''.

I have a vf700-cu on it with as5 on the cooler and on the ramsinks instead of the thermal pads. Sorry should have said that sooner.

Well thats a pretty good cooler as it is. After you have done all you can including applying AS5 then all you can do is watch your Tmeps with that OC if it gets to hot you may want to lower that oc or buy the NV SILENCER as that is a very good cooler and is the Exhaust cooler type so may benefit you abit more.

Yeah I think if I am getting anything besides the pci exaust to go below I am getting the tidewater. Probably won't do that because I am going to give this rig to my wife and get conroe system when they come out.
