My GPU is running super hot (85+ Celsius)
Anything I can do to keep it cool, it's an NVidia GeForce GTX 465 (I got it for Gaming way before i started mining)
I could definaty make the airflow better, right now cables are everywhere.

How bad is it that its this hot?

Depending on what you're willing to do:

1. point additional spot cooler fans at the card, with something like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835209044

or even some regular case fans if you have any spares.

2. re-apply thermal paste

3. replace existing fan, either with same type or aftermarket cooler:

90c is where solder gets brittle and graphics cards get broken..

.. so try and stay below 80 if you can.

Cleaning up the cables is a good start, if you don't have dedicated cable storage areas use cable ties.

Make sure you have a fan blowing in at the front and one blowing out at the back to pass air through the case.

nVidia's are not very good for mining with, if you have a friend with a decent Ati card see if they will swap Grin

My case has 4 fans in it, and I am working on getting a better setup (getting some Xilinx fpgas)
just redid the wiring a bit, lets see if that works xD

I try and keep my card's under 70C, ESP for 24/7 mining. I've been able to undervolt my 7970, and my core temps are usually < 60C. At 85+, I wonder what your VRM temps are like, and you're just asking to kill your card.

Tips? 1crazy8pMqgwJ7tX7ZPZmyPwFbc6xZKM9
