    Only using this one as its the best card I can find that has tv out for my component tv, problems are that I didnt realise it was a overclocked one so it runs 60 degrees idle, 70 when I have my heating on in my flat and using a emulator runs about 88 degrees! First I am going to downclock it to its factory settings but also wanted a good cooler to help.

    I did have one sitting in my cupboard almost a year that I got rid of when I moved house as never used it that would of been perfect.

    Havent changed the paste yet but may just wait.

    Revert to stock speeds, and bearing in mind the age of it, make sure the heatsinks are clear of dust.

    Quite often with GPUs the fan speed stays low until temps rise anyway, so it may be normal, you can always use something like MSI afterburner to adjust the fan profile.

    Failing that, these coolers are great - http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_2870.html
