post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just making sure and curious... But what are the best or safest idle temps for the EVGA 580 super clocked edition? And also under load. I believe what ibwas seeing idle for me was 50c on the ati I had I was around 40-45c just want to be safe and gain some knowledge. Thank you all.

Well it cut's off (lowers clocks) at 97C, so I would imagine everything below 90 is perfectly safe.
You really shouldn't worry about graphics card temps if you aren't overclocking it. Usually coolers are good specially on Nvidia cards. Unless you have very bad airflow in your case you should be golden

Agreed. I'd shoot for staying under 90 but it won't hurt if you go over occasionally for benching and what not. As a point of reference, my temps at idle lie between 35c and 47c depending on the ambient temp and if I'm surfing the web or just idling on the desktop. Your temps are 110% a-ok.

The only way I've been able to hit above 90c thus far was benching it with 1.15v @ 975mhz.
