wait ur supposed to put thermal paste somewhere on the cooler
Just on the GPU core like you would with a CPU.
Atleast you guys can view temps
Appearantly the eVGA 6600GT (and possibly others, just dont know which brands) has a temp sensor on it, but the way the BIOS is programmed won't allow programs to read from it...supposed to discourage overclocking
hehehe, anyway, I did find a site though where you backup the cards BIOS on a floppy, use a hex editor, edit a specific section, flash it with the new BIOS and supposedly bam you got temp readings. Kind of scared to do it though lol
EDIT: Sweet! It worked
Sitting at 53C idle, and the threshold is 145C!! that's insane.
I guess I'll post where I got the information for anyone else to use
