    I have 2 Gigabyte 6600GT GV-NX66T128D in SLI and my temp. on the first card reach 101 deegres (under heavy gaming,3D Mark 05...etc) I let it run 1-2min uder 101 deg. and the card survive.In the BIOS settings for PEG Link are on Fastes-no OC.( 520/1030) in nVIDIA control panel. I have Tsunami dream case wit two 120mm fans and 4 BGA Revoltec
    Cooper ramsinks on the cards,

    The other card stay on 75-80 heavy load.

    I Think the sensor readings lies,at least for one card.

    What Temperature will kill the GPU and how long will take to burnit ?

    Im afraid to run at 101 C for more then 2min.
    Now, I removed the side panel of the case and put it a huge 250 mm roomfan to blow direct on cards. Idle temp. now are 62/and 81 on load.

    Sorry for bad english!

    Well, the safety threshold is 123C (or so) by default, so you should be safe. But 101C is way too high. Either the fan is not doing its job or the contact with the GPU is broken.

    i think the tem threshold's default setting is 120°C. but you really should check that issue cuz 101° are way to hot!! you could try to use an nv silencer - it droped my temps by 15°. is it very hot where you live? also could it be that the lower card is heating up the card above? if so the silence would be a good solution as it pumps out the hot air from you case.

    hope this helps ... :D

    The threshold is 145 by default here

    yeah but i guess it isnt °Celsius or is it? still nothing good can come from having 100°C hot parts in you rig :D

    Check the heatsink and fan on the hot card are clear of dust, I was hitting high idle and load temps after i forgot to clean it for a while. Turned out it was the heatsink clogged with dust (must get some dust filters!)

    Yes, the threshold is in celsius "145 C" and the card is dust free. The temp. problem apear two,my be tree days ago.

    The only thing that I change on my PC are nFORCE 4 mobo driver 6.66.Then the comp. at startup wont boot into windows for minutes and I revertit back to old 6.53 mobo drivers. And unistall speedfan temp.- fan monitor because there was no GPU temp. readings.

    Some GF6600GT models' heat sinks do not have good contact with the GPU and so don't cool it efficiently enough. I've heard that many people had overheating problems with their 6600GTs. Re-seating the heat sink with some Arctic Silver might do the trick or replacing the stock cooler with a better one. Make sure you know how to do this or get the help of somebody who does.

    Maybe you need to put some Artic Silver or another good thermalpaste to drop that Temp.

    Tried swapping them around to see if the high temperatures stay with card 1?

    Hi,
    Yeah I would say definatly having a look at the card(s) outside the case and probably re-seating the heatsink. Not long ago when I was cleaning my brothers 5900Ultra out, I had a look at the heatsink and it feel off :eek: :eek: . I thought i was about due to be reseated anyway :).
    So I re-applied heat-sink grease and wacked it back in, booted it and it idled at 65*C :eek: wooah 30*C higher than before, I didn't dare try a game I just took it outside re-seated it, and presto -- idles at 31/25*c.
