Possible Wrong GPU Temps?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My cards the EVGA GTX 570 HD DS "DoubleShot" its has twin fans on it both are running and I have excellent case air flow.

When I play a game they all go to about 80c I found this odd cause even my old gtx 570 would only get 76c with stock cooler.

So while stress testing the card I put my hand around the card not touching it just feeling the heat off of it and it doesn't feel anywhere near those temps.

So my question is can the card be giving me a false reading/broken gpu thermometer?

EDIT: side note I use Msi afterburner to test temps along with other random gpu program all give the same reading and these are at stock clocks.

80C sounds all right. If you are unhappy download MSI Afterburner and make your own custom fan profiles :9.
