That's for a passive heatsink. For a heatsink/fan, 70C is a bit high.


True, but its summer now. My card is hitting 70c under load. Good cool days its like 55c. another 5c I would start to worry.

I have a 7600 gs card that has a passive heat sink....was running at 85c so I pulled the heatsink off, cleaned up some thermal tape from the gpu and used artic silver, while I had the heat sink off, I mounted a cpu fan (fits rather nicely) Checked the temps after I ran it for a while, temp is now 46c
