    Hi All

    I have an issue with my Geforce 6800 GT Card the last couple of months it has started to exceed the core temp threshold and is underclocking itself. Ive mover the soundcard to the furthest away slot and have cleaned the cooler to no avail. The temps are on idle 56 ambient 81 gpu core anyone have any suggstions?

    Cheers

    Kev

    56c idle and 80c on full load is what i get too but its never gone over the threshold. well here were i live is very hot so i expect my card to run hotter than most ppl. if you say that the card is underclocking itself than there is a problem, probably fan related.

    Well both side are off the case the fan on the card seems to sound ok but no there are no case fans in the case this has only started happening the last few months though and the case has been like this for years.

    Millsvaard i have had my suspicions that the fan on the card is failing it seems the only logical explanation.

    Remove the HSF ,re-apply a thermal compound ,and re-mount the HSF make sure the GPU and the HSF are well touched.

    you need fans in your case. just because the sides are off doesn't mean air is flowing.. unless you have a housefan pointed at it, it simply is not moving.

    The temp of your room? My room's 32, the temps are on idle 62 ambient 75 gpu core in 3DMark. But every 30 seconds the card reachs 126 in 1/10s. :frown:

    Wait a second, your room is 32C (89.6F).
    The ambient temp of the card is 62C
    While the core is 75C

    I'm only repeating this to make sure I've got this right.


    If I did infact get all of this right, the problem is the fact that your room is an oven. How can you breath in a room that hot?
    Get your room down to a human level of around 70-75F (21-23.8C) and the card's temps will drop down too.

    I'm not sure even an Arctic-Cooling Silencer can help you much there.

    I´d start by adding some fans to the case. If your case does not allow that, get a new case, preferably one with two fans on the side and one or two on the back. Here´s a picture of the model I´m using: http://www.overhard.com.ar/website/detalle.asp?id=1077

    Put both lateral fans blowing inside and the back fan as an extractor. They should reduce your temperature a lot.
