ok first download coolbits 3d and force fan on
then u remove one of the expansion bay slots under the gpu so it can ventalate better. id also reccomend a new driver that comes with it. the 71.20b's the best for me. http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=948 manual install so ask if you need help
and BTW that 68c idle is hotter than my full load. my load is 60c sometimes 59c but if you have good ventalation by removing the expansion bay metal bars, (the one right under it). by doing that the hot air will seep out the back so your temps wont go as high when ur on load either
no.... if you have a pci slot fan move it down to the second pci slot one under the graphics card and remove the first expansion slot one under the gpu. it has been proven to atleast drop a minimum of 6c and max of 11c by doing that.
yes they do and remember to remove the expansion bay bar right under the gpu and put the pci fan the second one down and if you have any other pci cards put them at the bottom so it wont get as heated. and yes the way u place your cards does affect temperatures
