hey guys I have a real problem here...
I have Zotac 9800GT 1 GB DDR3.
I mount it on a PCI slot.. then install drivers and install software call filestorm. And what I see " temp. is 53 C"
when I play games for 20 minutes then it goes to the 72.
Now what can I do guys .. please help me ..
How can I fix this temp. isuue
Those temps are perfectly normal, and within the spec for the card - don't worry.
My worry threshold would be if your card goes above 90c when gaming.
If you want to bring the temps down you can use rivatuner or nvidia's ntune software to increase the fan speed of the card manually.
ok one more thing.. My friend suggest me that I have to get the cooling pad for my GPU.
Is that necessary? I mean in the future.
You are fine as is. What is recommended to do is clean out the heat sink and fan on the card ones in a while dust and lint affects cooling a lot. I clean the internals of my computers at least every three months.
