5850 - 85 celcius - overheat?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have a Powercolor hd5850 graphics card, my problem is about heat, idle gpu temperature is 50 celcius and load gpu temperature is 85 celcius, there is no overclock in any parts, ambient temperature is 33 celcius, case cooling is fine, i think there is dust in my 5850, i couldnt find any information how to remove plastic shroud and reach heatsink, there are a lot of screws and i dont want to disassemble heatsink or ram cooler because im not sure i have suitable thermal paste, what do you suggest? if u recommend me to clean, how do i remove only plastic case(shroud)? do i avoid warranty if i remove shroud? do u recommend me to use the card as it is?

Help!

Yep, remove the plastic shroud and clear out any dust.
This probably will void warranty, but if you put it back together well who will notice?

85 is not too high, I shouldn't be concerned about it tbh.

My GTX280 hits 105 C within 60 seconds of running Kombustor. Cards get hot and 85 C isn't horrible.

yeah that isn't bad temps, but don't disassemble the card as it may void your warranty. just blow some air into it and see if temps improve

I remeber to ge around 90°C at Max Ocer the shet out of it. Nothing bad ever happend to it. It ran smooth and nicely. I think 85°C if nothing to worry about smile.gif

I believe the maximum temp is about 120C, so 85 during load isn't really too bad smile.gif

Have you tried having your fans spin faster?

Try installing MSi Afterburner and set the fan speed to 60%, and see if there's any difference smile.gif

26 Ambient is pretty high, a good blow out to clear dust is a good idea.

85C is safe under extreme usage like Furmark or Folding/Mining but shouldn't be sitting at that for gaming usually.

Try and aim under 90C, they can handle more but better safe then sorry, not all VRMs are cooled or heatsinked the same on different cards.

Dang. My card doesn't budge over 68C, even with Kombustor at max and running for hours.
