Default 6600gt, temp

Is there a temperature probe for the 6600gt? It came today, installed it, and looking around at the features. I am new to nvidia cards.

Yes. Right click on desktop and select NVIDIA Display and select your monitor. On the left click temperature settings.

Thats not cool, I was under the impression that newer cards had that feature. Like the x800, 6X00 lines. Oh well

The temperature is disabled in eVGA cards, well the 6600GT's anyway cause it has one for my 6800GT.....to get temp readings it requires saving your cards BIOS and editing the hex in the code to enable it.

theres the link to do it yourself. Mine was an eVGA card too and it works fine.

why would you give idle and ambient temps? More people would care to know idle and load..

I can't beat the temp but I know my cards power can beat it and that's where it counts

Plus as soon as I get a maze4 gpu block it'll beat it
