Add some more ventilation/cooling. 60C idle is WAY too much.

Hi.

Use rivatuner to rise the fan speed of your GPU, by default is always in 40%

Ok, you also can manage the fan speed with the nVidia control panel. You can download from the nVidia's web site.

For inexperienced people EVGA Percision will be easier for you to understand and adjust settings.

Your IDLE temp is above 60? You still have some major ventilation and/or heating issues. Go ahead and check if the card has any thermal paste on it; if not, buy some Arctic Silver 5 and reapply.

Yeah, I suppose. Your fan's lifespan is going to be shortened, tho.

Well, i think that you can keep your fan speed at 60% and change your case. I have 1 and a half year running the fan of my GTX260 at 60% without problems. My case is a thermaltake v9.

Nope, for the GTX260, 60'C idle is totally normal. They have relatively low fan speeds and generally idles at around 60'C and goes up to 80s'C at full load.

The 65nm idles around 60'C while the 55nm version generally idles around the mid 50s'C. My 65nm GTX260 sp216 idled at around 59'C with 40% fan speed at idle.

Agree, my 4850 idle at 59'C.
For gtx 260 60'C are still considered normal at idle. :)

The more heat you have, the more wear and tear on your product. The GPU's heat also affect the CPU,HDD,RAM,and PSU.

so geforce gt 220 idle temp @ 55-60% is an ok idle temp for this card or is to high i brought it down to 50-55% but i had to higher the fan to 60
