Hey. I purchased an Inno3D 9800 GT and later I found out that it apparently has some cooling problems. I tried tools such as RivaTuner, DualCoreCenter (MSI's Utility for controlling stuff that happens) and other stuff like SpeedFan, but nothing works. I really need help, because when I start benchmarking or such, or playing games such as GTA IV, or Far Cry 2, the GPU reaches +75 celsium approx and I get a BSoD. The setup is Q8200 QUAD at 2.33GHz stock (not clocked it yet), with 4GB of DDR2 ram, and a Fortron 450W PSU. I really need help, and thanks for your time

75C is very good temp for a Graphic card, you have to worry only if you pass 90-100C
Hmm.. I'm not sure that it crashes at 75C, I'll run Crysis in windowed mode and see what temp it goes to boom, then I'll post it here. Although, I finished building this PC about 2 hours ago and I haven't really put any cooling into it, it's just the CPU fan and the GPU fan, nothing else. I'm going to put either 3 Zalman fans, or water cooling. Which do you think is better, and can you recommend me water cooling if it is better?
