Default Looking for a way to change Nvidia's "Core Slowdown Threshold"

I don't know about you, but I don't want my card running at 120c before it warns me that its getting too hot. I was thinking something like 95? But the question is, how do I change it? Nvidia doesn't let you change it for some retarded reason. Anyone know how?

Well, I can tell you this: Although different GPU's will naturally run @ different temps when idle and when under load, the chances of any chip running over 100 C are pretty slim even during the most demanding situations, unless you have the worst cooling management in the world and your system is riddled with years of dust etc.

EDIT: What temps does your 6800GT run at when idle/under load?

Oh yeah of course, and Nvidia's GeForce 6 series cards are known to run hot, very hot, but i've seen my card get to 95c before and I don't want it to happen again. I run about 60 idle and 70-85 under load, depending on how far it's OC'd. Same as all other BFG 6800GT's.
