  1. So i was tweaking my
    Nvidia Geforce 6800 xt the other day using riva tuner and

    well i deceded that maybe i was pushing it wen the core temp was 82* celcious. durring a bit of gamming

    im just wondering if anyone has any input about whats a safe temp for the core to be @ . The card is getting a little slow for the stuff that im doing and i just want a bit more performance.
    It idles @ 54 degrees

    That is totally safe temp my friend. They can withstand up to 100c and work just fine, although the life might be shortened just a tad bit.

    82c on load is great. Nothing to worry about, your idle is perfectly normal this is what everyone gets....
