Geforce 8800GT Overheating even on Idle
I just don't understand why my SLI 8800GT's are constantly running at 74-80C just sitting on the desktop with nothing running, the cards are both Factory overclocked with a core speed of 670Mhz but despite that they should not be that high, especially in Idle. Even whilst SLI is disabled and one card lays dormant they still both sit at roughly 75C on Idle.
I used SpeedFan to check the temps, is that reliable? I've got the latest nVidia Drivers and have checked Idle speeds under three different OS's; Win7, WinVista 64x and WinXP 64x, but they all get the same result.
Anyone got any ideas???
