    hey i know i just posted but i got another question already,


    i ran the temperature settings thing for my card while running unreal tournament 2k4 in a window to watch my temps. I noticed that my temps fluctuated constantly by as many as 5 degrees instantly and was going as high as 68 degrees. Is this high for this cooler?

    68c? or 68f?

    yes its typical for GPUs to run much hotter then CPU's...however if its C i would say that is a tad high....

    no why it can not be F....and i think that is about right. Check your case for proper airflow, dust.

    yep its in celcius, the airflow is fine but im wondering if it was due to improper TIM application. I read a review on newegg from another person who said his only got to 38C as a high, but that was running unreal tournament 2003 instead of 2004 so i dunno. Still worried though
