Hello

I have experienced high temperatures with my BFG GeForce 8800GT 512MB GDDR3 OC.

These are my system specs:
Intel Quad-Core Q6600 G0
BFG GeForce 8800GT 512MB GDDR3 OC
Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R
Teamgroup DDR2 Elite PC2-6400 2GB Kit 5-5-5-15
Western Digital 400GB SATA II
Corsair HX-520W Modular
Thermalright Ultima 90
Scythe S-Flex 120mm 1600rpm
Antec P182
Audigy 2 ZS

My antec p182 has very good ventilation, so I think the problem is from the graphic card.

These are my temps using SpeedFan, GPU-Z and RivaTuner, with no application running:

75ºC

Running the sims 3 only, in the character costumization menu, with default settings, on same programs:

93ºC

Same thing, with fans forced by rivatuner at 50%:

91ºC

The same, with fans forced at 70%:

83ºC

There is also a strange sound coming from the graphic card, very acute, like a warning as I run 3d games.

I have been told it can be the thermal compound paste between the fan and the GPU that is not in good state, or maybe the fan of GPU, or maybe dust.

What is your opinion? Are this temps high? Please help

Thank you

Just a bit, I have SLI'd 8800GT's and mine do not go much above 50c regardless of game or time spent playing and my idle temps are in the mid 30's. do you have the standard HSF or aftermarket?

Sorry, I don't know what is HSF

I had these temps, too with the early small fanned 8800GT. It even went above 100C.

Hello Al, How've you been doing?

I hope well! Ryan

I have it standart. Last night, trying an old 3d game, called Battle Forge, temps reached 103ºC. The fan was making a strange sound, like turning on and off. Thank you very much for all help you are giving me.

Yeah we love it man, yard is completely covered in grass now, trees we've planted finally got their roots down good enough to start growing, maple tree that was about 3' tall now is at eye level, just this year.

We have about 12 Hummingbirds using 4 feeders, Finches, Cardinals, Bluebirds, its an awesome sight when the Hummers are swarming the feeders, last year at the end of the season we had around 25 hope this year is a repeat.

Got some really cool HD footage of the Hummers last year, its a remarkable bird, the helicopter of the bird world, air is clean, no unnecessary noise, its fantastic!

*vomits with envy* Well I have some lovely train tracks to look at and the sound of junkies arguing over who gets to jack up first is to die for!, inner city life is the best and you know you are missing it, not :lol:

Maybe one day you can get away from it man, it was the best move we ever made.

:)  Maybe, but then I'm a city kid at heart and the times that I have been away from it for a while I miss the anarchy so the best compromise that I've reached at the moment is to get to the outskirts, a foot in both camps as it were. And I've still got a Pan, so hurrah [:mousemonkey:4]

Well living in the country does have disadvantages, no descent online gaming because you can't do it with a satellite internet connection cause the ping is too high, I'm typing this with my 45cal pistol less than 12" from my hand because of a rash of break ins way out here.

It'll take 30min for an ambulance or firetruck, when you go to town you stock up everything you need, cause town is 30min away.

Deer crossings, Wild Turkeys running through the back yard, B52 Mosquitoes, Snakes, Ticks, Big a$$ spiders, and crappy cell phone reception sometimes.

So enjoy the city life man, its whatever you're used to that matters. Ry
