I bought a cheap one for $15 and the thing was on everyday for like a year, no problems.

Why not just use rivatuner though with your 8800 gt... it has that nice fan on there already... It works so well too

When mine gets to 65C i can hear it go to 80% fan power... but it usually doesnt because i keep it on 60% fan power which you can barley hear the diffrence between that and 25% lol belive it or not... and on the rare occasionas when it hits 71C, my fan kicks in to 100%... that only happend a few times and that was after OC and running 3dmark06 :P
