Hi, I'm brand spankin new to these forums and was suggested by Estuansis, a good friend of mine if I had any PC questions. Well here's my problem/question I have an EVGA Gtx 460 External Exhaust 1024MB and when playing games on high/medium tweaked such as: Skyrim, BF3, LAnoire (medium for noire) and most other modern games it reaches very high temps that i record with GPU-Z and HWmonitor. It idles at around 45-50 Celsius and at full load goes up to 98 to 99 and stays there until the load is off of it. Now I haven't had more than one crash in the past year but I'm worried about the card dying prematurely. I want to purchase a non-EE 460 and SLI them but again, the temps are too high and to me its too risky having the extra exposure to heat on the card. Any tips or Aftermarket coolers anyone recommends? I've re-applied thermal paste, but estuansis said he wants to take a look at how I did it, and to make sure its on properly. The fan IS working correctly, I've looked at it multiple times and its definitely audible since I have it running at 65% and it almost always jumps to 100% after gaming for about 15 minutes to a half hour Any help would be appreciated! Thanks Edit: I lowered the stock voltage which was 1.25 to 1.00 and now I can play skyrim and it only reaches a temp of 65 after about an hour of playing, I'll keep monitoring it, but I ran Furmark for 10 minutes and at full load and 100% fans it still got to 99 Celsius.
