Gpu cooling solution
I have a ATI X1800XT 512 which seems to run hot when in use.
Recently during gaming (BF2, oblivion) the ATI Omega control panel says its 72C, is this hot? I was thinking yes, and if so any cooling tips you could give me?
The case setup is 1 Extra large fan on side of PC sucking in air, and 2 80mm Akasa fans blowing out at the back.I have my ATI 1800XT, X-fi sound card and various usb/ game controllers in my PCI slots, all spaced out to maintain airflow.
I purchased a coolermaster Viva heatsink recently but found out it wont fit on my card, any other ideas you all could suggest please?
Another thing, I also have Everest ultimate edition, and it has completly different readings of my GPU temp. which should I beleive and whats the best/ most reliable temp monitor I could download? Motherboard montitor doesnt support my Mobo (DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI DR Expert)
Thanks in advance
