if your case has good airflow (at least a couple 80MM's) and it's still overheating, I say RMA the thing, could just be a freak card.

if you don't have good airflow just cut some 120MM holes in your case and hook some 120MM fans up.

Don't exactly know, but when I'm stressing my VGA, the most it'll go is about 73°C. That's for my 7600GT, might be different with your 8600GT. The XXX edition is the Superclocked version, correct? Hmm, what you could do first before you RMA it is remove the fan, clean the stock thermal paste, and apply some AS5 or MX-1. Clean the stock thermal paste with some rubbing alcohol and coffee filters. I don't think it'll void the warranty.

yes it is the super overclock card and i took the side cover off i seems it's running little cool not much tho instead of 59c it's 58c idle and when playing Crysis demo it's 86c instead of 91c. maybe i just need to put a big fan. but the thing is it's 86c is still really hot. i don't know what to do. i guess i have to try AS5 or MX-1 to see if it makes a differnce.

You might want to try to move your computer out of that small area on your desk. Clean out the dust using a compressed air can.
