  1. hello?
  2. thats about normal. why you would spend more on an aftermarket cooler than what the card is worth is beyond me. just replace the card, or point a fan at it.
  3. Is their a lot of dust on it? Try cleaning it.The biggest issue with old cards and overheating is due to dust build up.

    What is the load temps?
  4. it has no dust build up and i cant afford a replacement ( might be years) before i can even get up to 100 bucks just to get ripped off again

    for 100 bucks you could have got a 5770 or gts450......... if you go on ebay you could probably get an 8600gt or something for $30 which would be better.
  7. this is funny..........i switched cards in my pc im talking tru and...... it wont even post now and i found out that one of the fin are tore off and i didn't notice it until now.

    yeah ginger moment :p
