All of you with passively cooled video cards (or 8800 series cards which generate massive amounts of heat). These cards need cool air from inside the case to cool themselves.

Your problem is that your case fans are not moving enough air through your cases:
Fans too small (CFM ratings too low).
Fans are oriented incorrectly. (CFMs exhausted should be about equal to CFMs intake).

Do this: Remove a side panel from your case. Set up a large window fan blowing into the case. If that solves your problem, then you know it's a fan issue.

the software is too buggy. This Graphic Card sucks because sometimes Windows AERO is disabled. I went to device manager and saw an exclamation mark under EN8500 GT.

I down clock to minimun and I still get overheat at 80 celcius degree. My old video card 7200GS work better than this. It only reach about maximum 60 degree when I play Fear. BTW I also get blue screen problem when I use smart doctor to down clock. I think the blue screen is because of faulty software. I noticed that there might be able to change black heat sink into fan. Does anyone know how to do that?.

well, guys, I did a mod on the Silent 8500GT, using hot glue and 80mm fan should do the trick, I have to apply electric insulation tape or otherwise it falls of once in a while,BTW i glued the fan onto the heatsink.
Step 1)
Put a BIG X with the melted hot glue on the back side of the fan (center) and put some on the corners. Put it on immediately or it will not stick.Then quickly while it is still stickable, put the fan on the heatsink and hold it TIGHT for 20 seconds and your done!
I was able to overclock, not overvolting to from 459MHz to 690MHz with this graphic card, 100% stable, GDDR2 512 memory to from 400(800) to 459(918) MHz, shader clock from 918 to 1380MHz and it is stable, using RivaTuner. still not as good as 8600GT. but a great budget

What is the temp before and after u glue the fan in?. I test with valcumn cleaner beside my card and it reduces from 80 to 65 c degree. The cooling system for this card really sucks. Asus need to improve it @@. My idle GPU temp is around 80 c degree. That must be a joke. When I play some 3D game like Fear, Halo..., it easily goes over 100 c degree after 1 hour.

Mine never goes above 59 degrees celcius.Even the toughest stress tester, BTW, you need lots of hot glue, not too much, but lots of glue will do the trick.
