Re: Gigabyte 6600 GT Temperature Problems
YOu go into your Display Properties. Right-click desktop, go to properties, click settings tab, and click advanced button near the bottom. Then click on the Geforce 6600GT tab. You should see a pull out menu with temperature display, clock frequency settings, etc. Go into the clock frequency settings and select manual overclocking. Now you can freely adjust the bar to raise core clock and memory clock frequency.
Before you do all that though, make sure you have the newest drivers from nvidia.com. I'm sure there are other ways to do this as posted by others. I feel this is a safe way because it's by nvidia.
Edit....I read your post again. The temp threshold cannot be altered. Mine is set to 127 degrees celsius. MSI also told me that 120 degrees should be point to stop. 127 degrees is really pusing it. Can't change that. That's probably the limit the card can handle. What does yours say?
