I've overclocked my 9800pro quite a bit, I'm just wandering what's the temperature safe limit, I want this card to last 3-5 years. I don't think I'll be upgrading anytime soon so need this card to work for me for a little while, all help is appreciated.

I hate Computers! My P4 2.4C won't go above 3840mhz. My Sapphire 9800pro core/mem speed won't go above 490/790. I really hate computers!

That is a very good question. I think this is a question for someone who has fried one by making it too hot, or for ati.

Something tells me ATI's not going to come to this forum, so I'm pretty sure somebody here has already fried their 9800pro right?

Hey Max what brand of 9800pro did you buy, ATI? sapphire?

Yep i got a saphire. It should be here on saturday with any luck. Hopefuly i can get some good overclocks with it.

To spice things up i mounted my 200cfm 120mm fan to the bottom of my case facing upwards at my vid card. The heatsink on my geforce 2 is actually cold to the touch cause of the massive airflow.

Sent an email to Sapphire they said not to worry if it's under 80C.
