How hot is to hot for a 9600m

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The chip maxed out can hit up to 80c when my ac is off because it only has a dinky little one copper heat pipe cooler that is also cooling the CPU and the CPU is cooled first so the heat pipe on the gpu picks up that extra heat, reapplying the thermal paste did not help all that much and i play wow on it for hours on end and just wanted to know if im at risk of degrading the chip at all.

80c is normal for a laptop graphics card. You can't really avoid them getting hot. I would say try to optimize air flow as much as possible.

I wish the made a after market fan that would fit but it looks line a tiny 40mm fan and it's integrated into the cooler so I'm stick with it frown.gif

I remember my Asus G50vt-X8TW with 9800M GS (essentially downclocked 9600GT) It would heat up beyond 90C in furmark. Then, I did similar to this: Attached copper RAM heatsinks with Secheuse thermal tape. (your laptop may not have that much room)

After the little mod, my temps were the following in Furmark for 52 minutes.
It would reach 85C and the next fan speed would kick in and temps would stabilize around 82/83C. In games, temps were lower.

80C isn't bad at all.
