    Bought a PNY 465 and unlocked it to a 470 with stock clocks. I ran the F@h client on it for a couple minutes and noticed my temps were ~93c. This seemed a bit high for me so i shut it down. I've heard Fermis run hot but before I run F@H on it for extended periods of time I wanted to check up and make sure these temps are safe for the card?

    I also have one of these black PCB PNY GTX465's with the 10 memory chips unlocked as well. I also see temps jump quite high when gaming. Sometimes reaching a bit over the 100C mark!!!

    yeah you got one reason to replace the cooler :toast:
    or you could try lapping the hsf and use better thermal paste and see how it works

    lapping might net him 2 or 3 c but replacing the cooler is a better option

    yep, lapping is the cheapest and easiest way
    but if the stock fan could be replaced with better fan its much better
