Icon2 Help with watercooling 8800GTX

Just recently bought a Sparkle 8800GTX and it's wayyy to hot

I know nothing about watercooling... so a lil help would be much appreciated.

define "way too hot" ?

Afaik stock cooler keeps the GPU cool enough and if you have good case airflow, the fan doesn't even make much noise

Icon2 Sorry

Idle around 55C and on load above 66C. It made my pc ~10C hotter.



[edit]
Hmm... Strange thing that I didn't really hear the GTX Which is good. My airflow?? Well. To be honest I didn't really work on that :P I need some additional coolers.

66C is cool; don't worry, as long as your GPU temp stays below 80C your fan won't speed up and remain silent
