Overheating issues with GeForce 6600GT AGP

  1. One problem solved, another appears. Well, what would life be without
    a little excitement :haha:

    So here comes: I'm having overheating issues especially when playing COD2
    or AOE3. I turned AOE3 on last night for like 10 minutes, jumped to desktop
    to look at nvidia temp monitor, and whoa, the card was running at temp of
    87 celcius. 30 seconds after that, the whole machine hung.

    COD2 was doing this crashing also, but removing the case side panel solved
    that temporarily. AOE3 wont run even if case is open.

    I'm thinking about getting myself a Zalman VF700-CU VGA cooler.
    Any comments on the cooler mentioned?

    EDIT: OK there seems to be a specific forum for cooling issues.
    Could a moderator move this post there, please.
    Sorry and thanks :blush:

    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

    Those heatsink/fans are XLnt!
    Only downside are the heat sinks for ram. You need to be very
    sure to clean them off after you pull stock hsf off. Any residue
    and the new sinks wont stick.
