Default little problem with new graphics card

i bought an EVGA 8600GTS

no overclocking or anything
but i check with hmonitor

it runs 63 C idle <---- high????

besides this high 63C at idle i have no other problems

i have a sound card about 2 inches below the graphics card
maybe this is clogging up air flow.......

Your Temps for the 8600gts is fine, the g80 series are 90nm and run very hot, but its safe for idle Temps, if you try a game, don't panic if it goes from anywhere in the 70's to the low 90's

EDIT: its 80nm... still large die size though, it'll run hot still
