    My Core Duo hits 90C every time I work the database's ass.

    So?

    I've never seen my C2D go over 60C with intel stock cooler.

    I haven't done any stress test on it yet, but my C2D runs pretty cool.
    I'm watching a movie on it right now and surfing and I just took this
    screen capture of the temps. And I'm using the stock cooler, too.

    Yea wtf C2D getting to 90... u should look into that.
    When i had my stock cooler max was like 62 on orthos stress test. Now I have a e6400 overclocked to 2.8 and it doesn't hit over 55 with a zalmans 9700

    better airflow cooling or get a new cooler for your card

    assuming the temp probe aint busted, 90 is mad hot

    My 7600GS used to hit 115C under full load. I installed an extra 92mm fan blowing air on the PCI cards and the max temperature dropped to 90-something. So it's certainly possible. It's not even bad for the card, so long as it doesn't burn out on the spot, but it will certainly slow down at that temperature. You should invest in better cooling to get better performance.

    I don't think at 90C you are going to see any degredation in performance whatsoever. This is not something to worry about unless you just wanna be anal. In that case put a fan on the back of the card.

    It has more to do with the underclock settings in the video card's software. Mine's set to underclock at 90C, so I figure his probably is too. Same brand and all.

    Mine is set to underclock at 100 something but I got concerned when artifacts started to appear. I have a room fan blowing on it now and it went down to the low 80s under load. I am buying this for the side of my case and apparently it is like a vaccum cleaner so it should help out a lot when I finally get it in. It moves 84.1cfm of air. :eek3:

    Apparently it is VERY loud but I always have at least 3 fans running on my room along with the radio when I sleep so I am not that concerned. Ill keep everyone updated.

    can normally run video cards safely up to 130c or there abouts. that being said, some will start artifacting before that which i wouldnt be happy about.

    CPU's if they start goin over 65-70c then i would suggest fixing something, as they can fry alot earlier than video cards

    I had a P4 that played games upto 80c, :eek3: in december it finally kicked the bucket.

    Guess what I found when I took everything out.

    The motherboard directly under the CPU had WARPED down. It was literally in its own fucken hole.

    Explained why my other ram slot didnt work :mamoru:
