Just got a 8600GTS and when the cards under load (rthdribl, max everything running full screen) it's hit 75c. I wandered whether these are normal temps with a stock cooler for these cards?

As an aside, the fan speed doesn't pick up at all during load. (I gather there's a problem trying to manually set the fans speeds with the Nvidia driver and I've even tried using Rivatuner to increase the fan speed but that's not working either).

Running on XP, rig as per sig, all stock.

TIA, dagwoood.

That temp is normal (well, slightly above), 145c is the "core slowdown threshold" if you get to that, then start worrying :p
