    After installing my VF700-CU Heatsink/Fan and some AS5 i have seriously lowered the temps on my card (My VCore is @ 1.35v): What do you guys think? Oh and in my room, the air is about 50o F

    That's a mighty chilly room you're in. That low room temp has alot to do with your very low card temps. Once you raise the room temp back up to normal living conditions, you should expect to see your temps rise some.

    when you alt+tab out of the game and then check the temp in nvidia control panel, temps already go down at least 5°C. check load temp with riva tuner. it's alot better

    Nice temps! Vinnie I must admit the XFX lid on the stock cooler looks quite cool but thing is, how often do you look at your graphics card?:p. I never really look at mine.

    Those are some nice temps indeed. But you should add a few degrees up on them, since they drop rapidly once you exit an application.
    Use rivatuner or some other program to accurately monitor your load temps.

    When my room warmed up I had to lower it back to 433/1.15 becuase it started to artifact.

    Wow extremely nice i wish i could have those temps. I have been having trouble with my 6800GT Temperatures and overheating problems (no artifacts though). When i loaded up an extreme graphics hauler like FEAR i hit my 135 threshold (OMG!) so then i started investigating. I downloaded the new version of drivers and have been monitoring my temps like mr. paranoia. My idle was like 100C wow! I opened up my case and cleaned out some dust bunnies with my friendly can of compresses air, and my idle went down to 85C. (still hot but better). I asked around and figured this was too hot, so i did a more thorough cleanup and put a desk fan in the side bringing my idle down to 62C ( a lot more stable). Most figure that is too hot but i dont know what to do now i dont wanna touch the heatsink /as5 etc. because i have warranty on all my parts. (I have a DELL. DONT BUY FROM THEM). I phoned them regarding my temperatures scaling up and over 100C during games and they tell me this is NORMAL! I dont think i can convince them to come fix the problem or if i should screw up my warranty which i dont think is a good idea. They will not come without an extreme problem and i still have yet to call them back for permission to install some fans (does anyone know if i need permission from dell?). If someone has any household tips for cooling gpu thanks. ( I do not OC and i have crappy stock cooling in my case, need an intake fan) Thanks for reading and thanks for the input.

    To be honest the temps are what I will expect from high end cooling like your Zalman, NV Silencer etc....the difference is that your room is at 50ºC which is very cold indeed. I wish I have those temps here :)

    egyteam, they put that metal bracket on to help with installing and removing the card so you don't have to touch the PCB and prevents damage.
