too high temp, need to be worried?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
You guys need to calm me down a little bit. Yesterday I was testing the "Twin Frozr II" GPU cooler on my MSI GTX580.

I kept the fan locked at 40% and fired up some gaming. After a little while I closed the game down to check fanspeed/temperatur and stuff like that.

To my big surprise, my card had reached 96c degrees, acording to GPU-Z log. I dont know for how long it ran at that temperatur. So after that, I let the fan run at auto, untill I get the AXP GPU cooler.
The card works fine in games. But I just have it stuck in my head that my card have been damaged somehow, without I know it.

Do I need to feel worried?

Meh. GPU's are meant to take the heat. While it's not recommended to run them that hot, they can do it. I would start worrying if you started seeing temps over 100C. But do a custom fan profile instead of locking it. You'll be fine.

No need to worry - the thermal limit is 104 - my cards regularly run in the low 90's, as thats what modern high end cards are meant to run at.

Try setting a custom fan profile in afterburner, it will help with noise and peace of mind

Hi. Yes as has already been said the graphics card can reach higher than that before you see issues, but its obviously recommended to keep it lower. Check the fan is spinning as it should, is clean and has no obstructions. Just keep an eye on them to make sure they dont get higher.

Thx guys.

Heres another thing acording to GPU-Z log file, my GPU load was max 52% in resident evil 5. Is that because my videocard doesnt need to work harder, or is something else going on?
