  1. I have a GeForce 5600 (not ultra) 256mb on agp 8x and when windows is idling, it sits at 80c, i dont know where it gets to when i play games, but after i finish it usually is sitting at about 85c.

    I have no idea why its overheating....

    PS, I have the latest drivers

    Then perhaps your case needs more ventilation!! Is there provision for more fans??

    hey thats a good idea...

    should be able to afford a couple next pay...

    taking the side off the case is good enough for hot days until then.

    I just hope 2 thermaltake 80mm smart fans, one each for the front and side is enough...

    any other suggestions are still welcome :)

    Hi there

    Very pretty pair and an unexpected picture of him. ,
    this is a nudist site and this picture does not belong get it off
    Jouw foto is anti naturisme en voor exhibitionisme.
    Jammer dat jij als Nederlander niet weet wat naturisme is.

    I am not suggesting that the picture is porn, as I look at it I just see a naked women with her knees apart. Not really a sexy nude beach pose. What I was getting at is some resposes to images suggest that many contributors are more interested in sexually oriented material than just enjoying good naturist images. I wonder if that is the direction that this forum was created to go in with the nudist title just as a pretense to make it seem more respectable.
