I can't seem to get the temperature on my card to drip below 60°C (without load, its ~28°C in my room), even with underclocking. It's been completely flat lined at 60°C, do you think it could be an error in the sensor? Or would it really always run that hot?
EDIT: I'm also running it in a Coolermaster Centurion 5 case, 120mm fan in the back, 80mm in front, and 80mm on the heatsink
More aboutevga 8600 runs high temps
so its 28c idle and 60c load? those are cool temps for a GPU, you have nothing to worry about.
28C was room temperature, 60C idle, ~75C load
all other temps stick around >40C idle to about ~60C with load
