Hi

I bought a 8800gt Evga and it is reaplacing a 7950 with a dangerden maze 4 gpu block. I have noticed stock temps are way to high for these cards ( and for some reason nvidia decides to run fan at 20%). Even after bumping up the fan to 75 percent (and sound like a jet engine), it only dropped temps to 60c. So I want to put the dangerden maze 4 block on it. I know the mounting holes are the same as the 7900 series so no issuses there. What i'm concerned about is the in/out chip and voltage regulators. Does anyone have a link to where they address this issuse and show a nice guide of how to sink them. I know its possible because read a lot of people running the thermal dual orb or zalman v-1000. If anyone had any info on this plz HELP!!

its called an 8800GTS

why add afte market cooling to a gt buy the gts

why are the temps too high? u get a lifetime warranty - if the temps are too high the manufacture would not ship product that runs at 70c

my 8800GTs with fan set manually to 74% runs 60-65c at max - on crysis in a micro atx box.

Yeah I agree they're too hot
i got the evga superclocked ed. so you can imagine how hot that sucker gets....I'm going to get another in a month or so and get 2 duorbs at the same time.
I'm sure it will be fine till then....

Now are you concerned about the clearance? that's going to be tough answer you'll have to call the manufacturer or find someone with the same setup.

---edit---
dragonsprayer...you're right that the card will be fine...but not if you wanna OC your already Superclocked edition card. :)  Plus I'd love to get some more air moving once I have 2 of the beasts

8800GTS is $100 more than the 8800GT. You can get a good Zalman VF900 cooler for $25. I put mine on and now my 8800GT idles at 35C.

Never gets near 50C at max.

kpo6969....nice

you mind giving a little info on how easy/hard the install went and any performance increases from extra core and shader

I have the same card, thinking of getting another and extra cooling

Ok first off i gotta rag on this guy because this just to damn noobish for me not too.

First off I bought 8800 gt from a friend for 60 bucks since he upgraded to 8800gtx. Wait... how much did u spend on that 8800gts g92 400 bucks!! wow for 5 fps more...

Second off; The temps are to high because my case is setup for liquid cooling because i dont like my comp to sound like a buzz saw. So I will admit it does not have the cooling of a thermaltake armor series but I gurantee you my case is dead silent compared to yours and I know its running cooler (way cooler). I can only imagine how loud it is with a 8800 gts stock fan at 75 percent and god knows how many other fans to keep it cool in a micro.... And not to mention your hitting 60c ouch... maybe should get it outta that micro.... So please noob go harass someone who cares....

Anywayz Thank you guys for the help. I ended up buying a dangerden 8800 g92 complete block. Was safer and easy to do. Plus the installation was straight foward and dangerden has high quailty product. Afterwards the temps under crysis were 43 C after an hour play and cpu 38. Wow for 160 i got 8800 gt cooled down to 43 c hmmmm... maybe shoulda got the 8800 gts lol NOT
