ah sweet alright ty.. but will doing that void evga's warrenty at all or?
also what version do u have?? i have 2.06 and it says it isnt compatible with my video card driver... i have the newest from Nvidia, not a beta.. so i dont see the problem. but because of it, i cant seem to find the section where i increase fan speed.
You can still use Ntune to get the temperature of you card and to adjust the fan speed. I set my 8800GT fan to 80% (at this level it's about as loud as all my other fans) and the card idles at 50C and gets around 67C after extended periods of UT3.
well considering i just tried to install it lol, and it said i need a nforce mobo and installation will now be aborted.. because i dont have one
ok rivatuner wont let me change my fan speed.. i cant even get to the area where im supposed to edit any settings.. i think it may have to do with my driver.. currently i have 169.21 and it doesnt seem to be compatible
Not sure why it won't install for you - I've got it installed on a P35 based Gigabyte board and it works fine. It integrates with the Nvidia control panel and is not a seperate utility (although it is a seperate download).
I was able to set up a Riva Tuner profile for my bro's 8800GT no problemo, with the latest nVidia drivers. FYI, I highly suggest you try to get Riva working. The aforementioned GT is in a micro ATX, and it has never gotten above 69*C running the latest games at max maxies...with a custom profile, of course.
And why the crap are you fingering your components? 160*F is normal operating temp for these things...use Riva or some other software program to determine your temps, not your finger. You wouldn't want baked flesh on that sweet new card, would you?
