    Hey, welcome. Well the temps here in the pics look safe, to how much do they climb to on load? What driver version are you using? Have you put the fan control in "manual" mode in RT? If so, best let it manage it automatically.

    You can easily get 100mhz and even more (I've seen 800mhz+ cloks on the gts250), just try and experiment with it, go up notch by notch, until you hit a wall and see strange things on your screen (dots or artifacts etc) For you fan speed problem, try another driver, or if it persists, try locking it manually (usually its 40% on idle and before you game etc just put it higher)

    Out of curiosity though, are the stock clocks really 675? The couple of gts250 I've handled were at 738 (stock) and an msi one which came factory OC, I remember it was higher.

    Hm if you read my above post, I think you have the green edition. It uses less energy, so they've clamped down on power a bit. I don't know if it explains your gpu fan though.

    Its been a while since I haven't had a gts250. Maybe someone else can help you on that. Most I've handled like I said earlier had the clock @ 738. But I remember once having a 9600gt green edition from palit in a customer's build, it was a green edition (it wasnt specified so on the box or manual) which had its clock lower than usual. I wouldn't worry about that though. 64 on load on a g92 is a pretty good temp tbh. They used to run hot.
