Hi io use a 8800 gts 320 mb bfg video card, i find it gets to hot,at 59% fan speed it idles at about 68 or 74...playing good graphichs games it will heat up to about 90 atleast at 59%...even at 100% speed it heats up to 70 to 75 which seems a bit high at 100% fan speed? what do u think/

Wow i just cleaned all the dust bunnies out of my card and all of pc that fixed the problem card temp is back to normal...i never woulda thought it being dusty would cause it to overheat like that. Seems perfectly fine now. Idle temp at 59 load at 65 back to what it was when i bought it.

Well, you need to clear the dust or else it's like not having a fan at all.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
