I agree with rgwalt. I don't have a g-FORCE yet, but you bet your skippies that my v770 has had extra HS's added, and a bigger fan. I also have one of those slot fans right below my v770U. My AGP was @ 100MHz for a while, but now my MB is giving me problems. I'll be swapping my other BE6-II into this PC while I get this one replaced though.
Nothing but the CHEESE!
Finally... the CHEESEMAN... has LOST his 4x4!!! - My buddy wrecked it!
One word:The Card Cooler. Ok, it was more like three. Get The Card Cooler from thecardcooler.com. This is basically two 80mm fans that attach above your expansion slots to cool you video card, and anything underneath. With this thing, you can overclock your video card even more, and it also keeps the the temp in your whole computer cooler. I have one myself, and it lowered the CPU temp by atleast 10 degreesF. So check it out: www.thecardcooler.com

There was an article which stated that the fan included with the GeForce could not cool it down sufficiently. Performance dropped continously, the longer the computer stayed on. I think it was written by a division of PC World. It was not overclocked nor used for intense gaming.
I used a Pentium heatsink on mine (one of those for P120 - 233MMX), took off the fan and placed a PCI-Slot cooler next to the GeForce (which is better than a fan in my opinion - at least with my setup).
On my GeForce (Guillemot) the Temp went from 50C - 60C (max) to around 32C - 40C.
I once got it up to 45C. But I also dont game so heavily, but after running SimCity 3000 for 7 hrs on 1280x1024 and UT for a couple of hours I managed to get those 45C.
