My card as you can see is the 512MB version

I'm wondering what the normal idle temp of thing is

Mine's idling at like 62C -> 67C

Loads at 92C+

Need some help

Added new thermal paste. Cooler master's HTK-002

My internal airflow is excellent

I got 2 80mm fans(2000RPM) stuck together as an intake for my CPU

I got 1 92mm fan(2500RPM) on my PCI brackets in reverse flow where the air at the bottom section of the case vents through the front

The front fan is a 120mm(2500RPM) in reverse flow

I have a similar 92mm fan for the rear fan

please help

80-90º is average
115º is threshhold
127º burnout

Remove the dust from the fan.
Regulate the fan with Rivatuner.
