i Installed GPU-Z and found that the fan speed was @ 58% and the idle temp was 70 degrees

Downloaded Riva Tuner v2.24 and increased the Fan speed to 78% Temp did go down a 2 degree's..
Am not sure, if i can pull the fan speed to 100% is it advisable? i did not over clock anything else, just the fan speed.

Full load the GPU goes upto 85 degrees..


PS: Room Temp is around 40 degrees... (All in Celsius) :bounce:

Clean up the dust,those temps are way up even for a gpu at idle.

Wow 70 on idle???
I have an XFX 9600GT too and it is 44 degrees idle fan is on 35%. 60 degrees under load fan around 40%
but I have a slightly different problem, if I let the card reach 70 degrees (which did happen during the summer, the pc just crashed.
Did you ever take your card apart or something?
