    why is that? if you are refering to the "fault" with the e8400's having high temps then your incorrect, they perform well and are cool but it is infact the bios and chipsets that report the wrong temps along with the software, the intel boards seem to have no issue so this is purely software or motherboard issue. Mines running fine with the Arctic 7 pro, low speed and it still keeps it below 50C well thats what it is reported at so more like 35~

    Re: 8800GTX Overheating - how to cool?

    If I do get a new mobo, i will be buying a decent HSF for the E8400. However, I'm concentrating on wanting to play crysis on my 8800GTX atm, but for some reason i cant most likely due to overheating, so can we try and fix that please

    Re: 8800GTX Overheating - how to cool?

    Tried and done, merely prolongs the crashes by a few mins. I wouldn't have thought it would be crashing at like 70deg.

    So, bottom line, resit the heatsink? If so, i'd rather just run it into the ground and then get a HD 4870x2 if/when they come out

    Re: 8800GTX Overheating - how to cool?

    The airflow in your case looks good, it probably is the cooler not making good contact with your card... it's not hard to take the cooler off and reapply the thermal paste, there are many guides on the internet showing you how to do it. if you really don't wanna take it apart then yeah, run it into the ground and get a new animal

    Re: 8800GTX Overheating - how to cool?

    It's tempting to get a cheap mobo and just overclock it until it dies. But that would be a waste of silicon right?

    think about the trees...

    unless of course you get an Asus board; then you'd be curing the sick and healing the blind; the boards even have a tree stamped on it to prove it.

    Re: 8800GTX Overheating - how to cool?

    Hahaha, yeah, but you end up having to send them back due to being faulty D:

    Are asus boards actually any good? 2/3 boards i have had from them have been faulty, I dunno whether this is my bad luck or just asus.

    Re: 8800GTX Overheating - how to cool?

    Well, just come off a half hour session, its a new record! It is to do with heat i think, I'm sat here in 2 in the morning with the window wide open and the light off not to attract bugs, and fan set to 100%. It lasted a fair while, but then just crashed

    The main reason i don't want to buy a new heatsink is that i'd rather put that money towards a new GPU anyway, and, if i did change the heatsink/reseat it and mess up then i can't afford a new one atm

    Always a good reason... sound reasoning behind that argument. Stick to your guns and ignore everyone that's trying to spend your money

    Re: 8800GTX Overheating - how to cool?

    No, i did overclock it at the start but not by much, i brought it back to normal speeds once it started crashing cos i thought that was the cause of the instability.

    Re: 8800GTX Overheating - how to cool?

    Well, if it's not clocked and you don't want to spend any money on extra cooling, there is not much more you can do other than, take side of case off, put fan to 100%, add extra fan pointing at it, make sure the fan and heatsink are not full of dust.

    If you have done all of the above, maybe the card is faulty (RMA time?) or maybe driver issue.

    Are you sure you wouldn't like to try taking the cooler of and reapplying the thermal paste?

    Might be the simplest and quickest solution to your problem as your case looks to have good airflow.

    Also does it crash in other games or just crysis?
