I read that you need to download a program that will make your gpu fan run 100% for the 8800 gts 320. Can anyone give me a link to download such a program?
P.S. My 8800gts is running HOT! To the touch the thing is burning up, is there any software that can run on vista x64 that will tell me my gpu temps?

open it with winRAR and run the setup.exe file.

once you extract it doesn't bring up any options? also are you extracting it to a certain location?

First of all how hot is it?
And to the touch ~80 degrees celcius like some cards on load WILL burn you. my card runs 76... if i touched it... i would be blistering lol. Like touching a black lamp.

last question. What is a good tool for reading my system temps. I tried using everest but it is only a trial version for 30 days. I would like something that reads everything like everest does.

Try getting a pc slot exhaust fan and put it under your card, i did this and lowered my temps by 5-7ºc

This is the one i have, i know its mad dog but it moves alot of air,

Install ntune and you can use nvmonitor to monitor cpu and gpu temps
