  1. Hi all,
    I recently bought a xpert vision 6600gt 128mb and for the first day it was fine, the next after ten minutes or so i started to get weird things happeing to characters on css and blocks were missing out of them, im pretty sure its over heating but more importantly do you know what item would cool it down, 6600's are renowned for their boiling ability and to be honest i just want to sort it out, games are spoilt after 5 or so minutes :(

    Can you return it? Does it have a thermal sensor that reports temperature? What's the temperature in your case? It could just be a bad card.

    take the side off your computer and have a fan blow on the card... if the artifacts stop then looks like a heating problem...

    sometimes i get chunks out of characters when i play CS:S, i think its the game itself not the card, cos my cards temps are cooshdy... im pretty certain CSS just does that...

    a grafics processor becomeing 60 degrees is quite normal.. especially for the Geforce 6 series.. so dont worry about it.. my Geforce 6800 runs really fine even up at 70 degrees..
