    My 8800 is quiet in idle, but during hours of WoW it gets extremely high. Anyone know any software that can adjust this?

    The fan will naturally ramp up when you're playing games - nothing to be worried about.

    how warm is the ambient temperature where you keep your tower?

    I never hear my card (8800) while playing, but my office is about 70'F

    Of course it will go loud. However, I dont care if it gets hot. Standard settings for fan is very sensitive from beginning, and im guessing apple is making it even lamer. I want to force the fan down and create a very high, just barely not dangerous temperature.
