What Drivers?

As was said if your ambient room temp is 25c or warmer the card will run toasty......my two Cards reach around 80c with my room temp around 23c ...I NEVER use "AUTO FAN Settings"...in Precision I go:

60% idle / desktop / web browsing = 2 x GTX 480's @ 41c
78% for gaming = 83c Max

If my room gets to 25c or warmer...I rarely game, as I'm outside enjoying the day. At night open a few windows and cool that room down !!!

As for the comment about the Tropics....most gamers thier go water and have AC in thier Computer room.....

well my room is at 26 c right now the card is sitting at 52 c, so I guess it's running pretty good
now, I'll just have to wait until I get the A/C in here.
