Safe temps for Nvidia Geforce 8800GT? (In your experience?) Tags: Graphics Cards Fan Geforce Nvidia Graphics Product Last response: November 11, 2010 8:37 PM in Graphics & Displays Share CallowMethuselah November 11, 2010 3:09:03 PM Nvidia website says it can be safe to 100C or something, but I was getting pretty nervous when Furmark got to 90C. It's attached to an accelero S2 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...). The Furmark temps scared me, so I put an exhaust fan under those (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...), close to the base. And that only leaves the bottom PCI slot to put my sliding-rail fan in (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...), pointed at the end of the card. So I think it has some good airflow (50C idle, 76C load on Furmark), but I'm wondering if both of the fans are needed, and if the sliding fan has enough intake to be effective. (I have a nice 550W PSU, so I'm not too worried about that, but how much does it cost to operate additional slot fans, in terms of electricity usage?) Any advice would be appreciated.
