was thinking of the bfg thing(i.e. they can send you 8800/9800 gt's but dont have anything higher) so he will probably get an equivalent card

use everest as well for temp and stuff

I used everest too, but the temps are always different, like evga
precision is saying it's at 65 c right now and everest is saying it's
at 59 c, I don''t know which one is right

One thing I notice while in evga precision is that the card isn't under clocking itself
is it supposed to?

My case is a coolermaster HAF 932 so I know there's plenty of ventilation

any reason for this?
I have an EVGA GTX 480 and a HAF 922 case. My card idles at 40c, fan speed set to 60% and the house ambient temp is 23c. Are you using EVGA Precision to set the fan and check the temps? When I check Precision I see that my core is clocked way down to 51 MHz for browsing and such, when I play it clocks up to 700 MHz. Depending on the game the temps get up there, but not as drastic as some I have seen.

Mention the to the techs at EVGA that the card is not down clocking... or check the forums for similar problems.

Yea the card isn't downclocking, when I check it in precision the core clock is at 700, some times it goes down to 400 but it just goes right back up to 700. The shaders and memory stay the same also.

If your card isn't underclocking properly, try cleaning your drivers and reinstalling them. Shouldn't be the sole reason for your temps though.

I have a GTX470 that idles at 38c (it's got better cooling than the 480) and my room temp is 27-28c.

You shouldn't get nearly double my temps at a lower room temp, with potentially better airflow.

If running dual monitors, temp will get into the 80's during idle.

Well idle temps are not the greatest concern. You already mentioned that at load you only get 92c. I wish mine never went pass 92c. Mine easily hit 105c when I am at a lan with my friends all cooking in the same room. So if your cards stay below 92c then to me you have a cool running card. Nothing to worry about. If it bothers you than replace the tim.

I think mine hit around 95C under 100% load...idk what fan speed is. Does it really matter....these cards run toasty. Lol toasty enough that I burned my finger on one of the cards (blister and all)...and this was a couple minutes after it was benched. Room temp in shop is hitting 29C....while gaming (luckily..computer desk is in adjacent room). If guys can run these cards in tropical latitudes...then we do not have much to worry about in Canada.
