I have the Bliss 8800GT PCX, 1024MB grphic card. When I'm idle the temperature is about 46 degrees, and when I am playing it goes up to 70 degrees. , which is too hot.

I need help changing the EXPERTool values.
Example: when the temperature of the graphic card is 50 degrees, the fan speed goes up to 60%

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

I'd say your temperatures are fine. Those are probably average. My ATI 3870 card (I think ATI cards generally run hotter than Nvidia) usually gets up to about 77-78C under load, and idles at 48-50C. Unless you are having issues, and have tried other thing's, I wouldn't worry about it.

that is a hair on the hot side, but not quite in the danger zone I dont believe. I would download rivatuner, and use that to manually up the fan speeds, it should help run it cooler. and to sterling, same with your card, its running in the upper limits-I like my cards running much cooler. Im running a 3870 x2 in my system, and at stock speeds it runs at the same temps as yours, however using riva tuner to up the fan to 55% I can get it to idle at 42 C and around 55-60C under load in most cases. heat is a computers worst enemy, the cooler you can get your components to run the longer they will last, and on top of that if your card is running that hot, its going to be heating up the rest of your system as well and make it work harder to keep the other components cool. I realize many video cards have a fan that blows the hot air out the back, but it doesn't get it all. :D

Thanks for your opinion, you too sterling14.

Now I'm using XPERTool that comes with the graphic card. I am increasing its fan speed when I am going to play and the temperature will be 50-55 with 70% of the fan speed.
