Default Re: 6600GT GPU Core Temp

The threshold for a 6600GT is 145C mate, your well within the range.

Is the card under warranty? If so, I'd contact the manufacturer or the supplier. I would NOT change the thermal paste or the heatsink if its under warranty, as that would destroy the warranty.

How many case fans do you have?

If I help you, I welcome Reputation Points to show your thanks. I won't forget it!

Yeah the threshold is 145C, I still don't like getting anywhere near it .

Yeah I've got 3 case fans, 1 rear exhaust, 1 side intake, and 1 front intake. The side intake virtually pushes air straight onto the gfx card and cpu. Yes, it is still under warrenty, if I notice any performance problems because of the temperatures, ill just contact the supplier.
