I spent about $280 after tax on my 8800gts 512MB. It was a great card, I was able to flash it at decent clocks and I really liked it. Overclocked it beat the G80 8800GTX, hell, even at stock it was really close despite having a smaller framebuffer and memory bus.

These were great cards, the whole G92 line was tops.

I still rock these cards and can max out almost every game i play! Only thing i can't max is metro and thats just because i don't like 30fps.

I've heard this before but I can only imagine the people who thought those chips ran hot were running single slot coolers b/c for me it was exactly the opposite. I remember reviews saying they were cool running too.

Anyway, under load and overclocked my G92 8800GTS never broke 65C.

Whaaaaaa? No way. You'd have to see instability somewhere. Sort of like on CPU's. How heat effects your CPU & it's OC if temps are too high.

The Innovateks were aluminum, first loop I ever did, and corroded/were so restrictive out of the box, that I went to the EK's and never looked back. I have some ded 8800's if you're interested in more, I may see about baking them. I was running SLI until a week ago when I switched to a 570 and dropped one in for Physx. Also great folding cards, I saw ~7k avg @ 775/1950/1000
40C? Interesting. Looks like I might need to remount mine then (PITA to put on btw). But at first I got no more than 45C but now I get ~50C. But I think that's because I increased my shaders more.

Hmm i may need to get some different coolers if they run at 40°C. The only thing in my comp that bugs me is the fan speed of my gpu's and there frickin loud. Backing my fans down to like 65% quiets it much mroe but there still louder than any other fan in my system.

I still have an 8800GT under my wing. In fact, it's rendering my screen now!

I'm thinking about taking it apart one day, cleaning the dust out of the fan blades, and putting some new thermal grease onto it. Only bad thing about this card are its subpar thermals...

At lower resolutions, the 8800 cards can still pump out enough frames to satisfy any gamer...
