I have just fitted a new graphics card to my pc (Nvidia 6600GT AGP) after playing halo for about an hour with all the graphics effect up to the highest setting I checked my CPU temp. It was on 50c, as my pc is normally on 32c-36c (idle) and 38c-40c (load) I was wondering if this was normal.

System Spec

Amd Athlon 64 3000+ (2Ghz no OC)
768mb PC3200 DDR RAM
Nvidia Gigabyte 128mb 6600GT AGP (core 561mhz clock 1.12ghz)
Standard cooling system

Overclocking your graphics card? ..never heard of it ..jk

I wouldnt stress it ..try reseating the card ..it may produce more heat then your last card ..invest in another fan or new cooling system (ie water cooling) if your losing sleep over it.

Thanks for such a quick reply :thumbsup:

If i reset the card's frequencies to default halo keeps crashing :flowers: , so it looks like a better cooling system is due. So can anyone recommend any good fan/water cooling kits around the 100 mark? er... thats about $180 (US)

Since water cooling is expensive, and very difficult to install and manage. Id go with air.

I suggest filling up any 80/120mm fan slots to increase airflow. Purchasing a vga silencer and cleaning your case so you can get some air into it.
A cleaning guide is here:

If your purchasing 3-4 fans and a vga silencer your total (depending on the quality)
would probably come to around 30-40 us
