Default My graphics card gets pretty hot, so...


Yeah, so due to the constant pressure my pc is under on account of me abusing it my video card was becoming unsettlingly warm, so i busted out some compound and thermal-ed an old heatsink/fan combo made for a P3 and used it to cool my card. Simple enough, no more heating issues.

That one is a 6800 GT, its a few years old. It requires its own power leg and gets fairly warm. Especially when its abused.
