So I upgraded from a 9600GT to this evga gtx 550 ti. I greatly enjoyed the improvements, I can now play all my games at max (Even Entropia Universe) but the big problem I have is the temperature, This is a standard card, no overclock but im reaching 65c idl and 82 during heavy games!!!! This is very high from what I have seen from what people talk about being a high temperature, I went from 42 idl 62 max on my 9600 to this? My case has 2 extra side fans and a large rare fan, the cooling should be fine but this card is getting way to hot!. Do I need to worry about this? The fan idles at 34%, I have tried setting it to max, gets the temp down by about 7 on idle but sounds like a jet. Any ideas? Thanks

    do you have good cable management??
    waht about your case model and fan set up?? how many fans?
    you should proly set tehm like this:

    or like this (same just different picture):

     
    front and bottom fans as intake fans and rear and top fans as exhaust fans.
    if you have fans on your window they should also be set up as intake fans for the cpu and your video card.
    do you raise fan speed when you play your games??
    download and run evga precision or MSI afterburner and raise fan speed or create a custom fan profile for gaming (when you play your games).
    but 62c for idle seems a little high.

    62 at idle isn't just a little high thats almost double than what it should be lol
     
    Mine is the FPB model and i overclocked it to over a 1000 core and 2200 memory stable and it idles at 34.

    Your load temps aren't anywhere near "extreme". If your card was getting to 100C then you'd have a problem. The GF118 in the GTX550 Ti is rated to 97C before it throttles down. It sound to me like you have poor air circulation in your case. Try downloading a program like MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision and set a higher fan speed.
