ZOTAC Geforce 8800 GT ARM, Overheats after 10 mintues Tags: Graphics Cards Zotac Geforce Graphics Last response: July 8, 2010 5:47 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Greenroomson22 February 5, 2010 7:24:44 PM I have an OCed version of the 8800 GT by ZOTAC that I got from a friend and in my system the card overheats after running for 10 minutes. There was not any problem before. Questions: 1. Would putting a better heatsink/fan on it solve the problem? 2. Can I change the firmware to a stadard 8800 GT so it is not overclocked? 3. Or is this card fired and there is no hope? Thanks for any input.

Is the card dusty? Try underclocking it, using RivaTuner. Simply drag down the Core, Memory, and Shader by about 25/40/15, respectively.
