  1. Please i really need your feeback.
  2. Looks fine to me. Those cards can take up to 105C. Keeping within 35C of that is pretty good, even though I'd recommend 40+ And yeah, 100% is better. Don't listen to all that about fan's life shortening.

    See what they mean when they say ATIs are better? My 4850 runs at 42C idle and 60C load with automatic fan settings. Load temps. drop when 100% fan speed is set.
  3. Not the exact same card, I have the vanilla, but I overclock to 686/1101.
    80% fan speed - constant
    23c room temp
    41c idle
    58-62c gaming
  4. I run my vanilla 260 at 40% 52c idle and then turn the fan to 80% for gaming and never go above 68c. Tried the fan at 100% while gaming and was only 2c cooler than at 80%. These cards have a high thresh-hold for temps, as Rags mentioned.
  5. yes i have the same motherboard asus p5qc,
    and an intel q9550 at 2.8 ghz, with 4gb of pc8500,
    windows vista 32bit, coolmaster 550W extreme edition power suply
    my video card Gtx 260 core 216 supercocked, runs at 48C at regular use
    and runs at 64C gaming,
    what realy help me is that i have the antec nine hundred two pc tower,
    that come with 4 fan's 3 of those are 120mm and one is 190mm,
    my cpu temp is 16C because i'm using the noctua nh-u12p cpu cooler
    and i install the second fan to this one,
    i planing to install more pc fan to my case for a better performance
