Actually cant blame Nvidia, it was a user issue. I had not installed any drivers yet. Took 20 seconds to search for, download and install the necessary drivers.
So these temps should not alarm me? what is an alarming temp for the GTX 470
The thermal limit is 105c so if you start to get too near to that under normal
gaming conditions then start to worry, 65- 75 c is quite normal under load.
