according to everythng i read, this is about 40 degrees above gameplay temp, and i get 100 at idle. brand new card. after 15ish mins of playing my computer will shut down (card probably too hot). anyone have any suggestions? i have top + sides off case of computer, a 18" housefan blowing on it. the fan is working on the iceq (not sure if it's running at the correct speed, seems weak to me)

on this pic it shows my memory clock to be 1000.... that's what it puts it to as default, even tho i can manually slide it down to 500. when i do that, the temperature has cooled down a lot.... my question is, why do i have to have it at 500 when the site here says it's 4000? what conversion am i missing?

erm.. the when you say 100 degree, you mean Celcius right?.. That's too hot for IceQ card even at full load..

1. How's the air ventilation?.. Can you post your casing picture here?
2. Does the interior free from dust?
3. Does the card still under warranty?
4. How's the processor heatsink? Is it clean or coveted with dust?..
