Anyway the gpu is running around 57c on idle according to EVGA Precision software, with the fans on max while the core temps are 21 and 24 idle. Only a 3 degree difference with the fans turned on auto...Sometimes gets around 75+ when playing games for awhile. Just opened up my case and cleaned it out a bit with some compressed air and cotton swabs (q-tips) but there wasn't much dust in it. There are a lot of extra cords lessening the airflow, but I'm not sure if there's anything I can do there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Yeah, it's being put through it's passes for being an 8600. Thanks for all the help Proximon. I'll probably replace the gpu with that EVGA 8800 512mb or the 1gb version for $40 more. When I do that I'll definately get a front fan though.
