With out Underclocking the card, How do you lower the First PCI Card / main / primary Temperature?

Would you do it through Bios settings somehow?

What if your running Windows XP, how would you do it? or Windows Vista or Windows 7 Huh

Lowering Hardware Acceleration to NONE, pretty much Disables the Video Cards

or hell, is it even possible?

Been wondering that myself, my main card hovers from 80-83 while the 2 other are 70-73.

Change the TIM! Arctic silver is good for 5-7° drop, aftermarket cooler, higher CFM fans, better case ventilation, cooler ambient temp! Even try lowering the GPU VCore a little, while remaining stable of course!

Don't have the guts and know how to change the thermal paste...

Use one of the overclocking tools that allow you to control fan speed manually, ramp it up until you find a stable temp you're comfortable with.

90% fanspeed and still hovers from 80-83ish.

If your PCIe slots will let you, increase the gap between your cards.

Get one of those adjacent PCI slot blowers and stick it next to the hot one.

If your case will let you, add some more intake and/or outflow fans to increase the airflow to all your cards.

Run your case with the side off and point a directional fan at the hotspot.

Put your case in front of your air conditioner (NOT swamp cooler).

Those are the easy options; they all have different costs associated with them, so caveat emptor et cetera.

I suggest setting up a simple script based on thermal threshold. I've set it at 75c.

If it goes past that point the algorithm will decrease the clock frequency as far is needed to bring it back below 75. Usually this is in the 20-80mhz range.

The longevity of hardware should always be taken into consideration; I don't consider it a good practice to run a card constantly at over 90 celsius and a massive 30% overclock.
