Ok so i was a little bored and decided to see how good the stock cooling was with my 1950xt. So i went ahead an removed my vf900 and put the other one back on and it was idling at 42c so i went a played graw for an hour and logged the temps and when i looked it showed the highest i was going was 57c ... this is the card i have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102067 i have it oced to 681/999 and it idles still at 42c going to go in and try somemore games and see what they go up to, but still are these pretty good temps for a stock cooler? oh and it has OCZ ultra +5 thermal paste on it

What kind of temps do you get on your Zalman vf900 ?

Which cat are you using and are you using ATITool 0.26 ?

Can you change the volts on the card ?

I probably wont get mine until next week :(

With my zalman it depended on the wether the heat was on in the house it would get up to about 40c,Side fan blows air righ onto the card so, with it cooler about 35c but once the cold air really gets here itll drop, what im thinking of doing is because i have ducting attached to the top fan of my card i might take more and have it attached to the back fan and the side fan so that the air from the top is circulated out the back and into the side and right to my card fan http://www.techpowerup.com/gallery/500 giving a constant flow of cold air.Cats are 6.12 and i can change the volts on my card
