Hope that helps. | Report abuse wmtp03 December 16, 2007 2:47:39 PM Uh...78 is not that bad. | Report abuse Trunkz_Jr December 16, 2007 4:26:53 PM I was told that once you get into the 70's it's not so good, not blowing up hot but still pretty hot, and when I do feel the card it is Very hot. If I were to lower it in the Adjust GPU Settings, what Should I set it at to maybe not have it in the 70's while in game playing. | Report abuse Related ressources Any 8800GTX Price Drops cause of R600? - Forum Baking your 8800gtx main board - Forum Upgrade: 2 x 8800GTX or 1 GTX 280 - Forum 8800GTX replacement? - Forum 8800GTX Help ?? - Forum Ask the community Publish ScottL4784 December 16, 2007 4:44:14 PM just try turning up the fan speed instead of underclocking it | Report abuse 3Ball December 16, 2007 4:48:40 PM lol, my card runs in the low 90's and it seems that most nvidia cards are around your temps, but can handle into the 80's, so unless you are having problems I wouldnt worry about it. Best, 3Ball | Report abuse Trunkz_Jr December 16, 2007 5:29:08 PM Okay good, i've set the GPU fan to 80% and it runs about 65-67 in-game now which is good. Is setting the fan higher gonna make it much louder or like blow it up or something lol What would happen if I set it to 100%? | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Need Help to Underclock 8800gtx KO3> Related ressources: Forum8800 Ultra NOT $1000+ ForumNeed help !!!Undervolt and underclock a prescott SL7E4 (Pentium 4 3Ghz) ForumIs there any program that can underclock my cpu at night Forum8800GTX out of the box running slower than it should be?
