N9800GTX+ & FurMark & temperatures

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hello,

i have [this] graphics card (the right one on the image) - it's an MSI N9800GTX+ with default cooling and default clocks.

its idle temperature fluctuates around 59 degrees Celsium. at load time, the temperatures rise up to 80 degrees. however, when i run the FurMark burn-in test on the highest preset, card's temperature rises up to 100 degrees already after three minutes, and continues rising. at this point i always killed the FurMark process, as i am not sure what the maximum temperature of the card is; but 100 degrees is too high anyway.

what i would like to ask is - does anyone with the same chip (or card, preferably) experience the same behavior?

yes, the fan spins all the time and is at 40% at idle, and 100% when temps reach the 90-95 degree level.

Not familiar with the n9800GTX+ but my 9800GT was running at <70 at load with the stock cooler. And that was a pretty bad cooler.

Now with the cooler in my sig, which is also missing a fan, it does furmark with 48 as Max load temp.

hi,

after i edited the automatic fan-control graph (ie. the one that says how fast the fan should spin according to temperature), i got better cooling properties, which means that the card reaches 100 degrees after 15 minutes or so (and not 3 minutes as in earlier case).

Poseidon, i looked at the official nvidia site and i see that 9800GT is way underclocked (600MHz Core clock) than the regular 9800GTX+ (734MHz) and my card (760MHz stock by MSI).

of course, when i set my core clock to 734MHz, the temperature doesn't exceed 95 degrees.

the MSI's stock cooler cools only the core (and i have some aluminium heatsinks on the MOSFETs), and not the memories. if you were to recommend me a new (ideally silent) air cooling solution, what would it be?

If the fan wasn't spinning, it'd die instantly. >_>

The temps you get in Furmark are unrealistic in terms of the kind of temps you'd get otherwise in games. The max loads you currently get in games are the highest you'll ever see.

However, getting an aftermarket cooling solution is always a good idea. biggrin.gif

I'd personally snag something from either Arctic Cooling or Scythe, but that's just me. biggrin.gif

oh yes, i noticed that too biggrin.gif

the max temperatures i get in games top around 80 degrees (so that's pretty safe, i guess).

what other stress test would you suggest, besides Furmark? or which game is currently the benchmark?
