I have an 8800GTX folding, and I get somwhere between 72C-77C. I reinstalled the heatsink with some AS5 compound and it seems to have helped.

I know these cards run hot, and I don't think mid 80's is going to kill the card anytime soon.

74-78c in a well ventilated case.

85-90c in a case that is not well ventilated.

44-50c with Accelero Xtreme 8800 in a well ventilated case.

48-54c with Accelero Xtreme 8800 in a not so ventilated case.

Temps are made with an Antec P182 with and without the side panel and with fans running at slowest speed on the fan controller with U.L.N.A as the tip of the iceberg.

Typo: Accelero

thats where they run in hot systems... it'll be fine. Anything under 88 Celsius should be fine for prolonged periods of time. If it gets too hot (95 celsius) downclock it a little bit.

Accellero Extreme 8800GTX works wonders though.

Get the Accelero Xtreme GTX 280 then. My friend have it and it cools it very well.

I say look for any reason at all to dump the 8800 series gpu's (and I just bought 2 new ones off newegg for 70.00 each) Just no reason to put up with such high heat output when the problems have been solved with the 200 series gpu's. Now if you want to modify a 70.00 gpu with a 45.00 aftermarket cooler, do the math and see what you can move into.

My 8600's 9600's 8800's are all high heat output gpu's, but they are good ppd producers for folding and the price is right, just a trade off on heat. I will not cry one tear when one (or all ) go belly-up.

Point of reference, my 275 folds at 69C in the same room my 8800's hit 89C

I understand the temp differences.My 285 is running at 66c folding while my 8800gtx is at mid 80's just 4 feet apart.I got my 8800gtx for $25 bucks so it's not a gpu that I could not spend a few bucks on and still come out good.It puts out 4200 to 4700 ppd.Not too bad for $25.
