This XFX of mine sure does run hot ,,,with a NV Artic Cooler on it,, being fed by a 80mm side pannel fan,and still even the the smallest OCing gets the temp up there ,,,mid 70 range up to 78,,,and i hear the 6800 GTs all run hott ,,,no matter what kind it is,,XFX, BFG, ASUS,etc etc..

I would say, It's a bit too much, but nothing terrific. What kind of case do you have? Do you have good ventil.?

i have 2 6800 ultra stacked in a sli system and mine gets reall hot quick, I heard the watercooling route is the way to go without having to worry of heat problems

Or if you have a lot of money, you can go get phase change cooling hehe.

My Sparkle 1 runs at those temps and Ive seen others that run at the same temp Im pretty sure your temps are normal.
