I might be walking through a minefield when I say this but... most new gfx cards seem to have bad stock coolers. They simply won't handle the card running at 100% for extended periods of time, even at factory clocks. (only tried 4850, 4870 and 8800 tho)

They might be able to handle it in very well ventilated cases and preferably cold air blowing in straight at the card

These overheating issues reminds me of the exact same issues ppl were having in GalCiv2 way back, ofcourse they blamed the game back then too

and STO runs fine on my oc gtx260, never seen it go over 64C (running an almost identical system as this threads resident fireman Sulda)
