Flashed 470 Temps seem High

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, I'm pretty new to the whole overclocking thing.
I have a stable overclock of:
  • Voltage = 987
  • Core = 800
  • Shader = 1600
  • Memory = 1703
I ran heaven bench with these settings:
  • Render:direct3d11
  • Mode:1280x1024 4xAA fullscreen
  • Shaders:high
  • Textures:high
  • Filter:trilinear
  • Anisotropy:4x
  • Occlusion:enabled
  • Refraction:enabled
  • Volumetric:enabled
  • Tessellation: extreme *I put it at extreme because I'm going to post my results in the tesselation thread.*

I ran fans at 79% the whole time, and the temps slowly climbed to 87C by the end of the benchmark.

These were my results in the benchmark:
  • FPS: 39.1
  • Scores: 985
  • Min FPS: 19.1
  • Max FPS: 104.8

That's normal.

At what temps should I be worried? 95C+? I want to overclock it more, but I don't wanna fry it.

How's airflow in your case? And how much clearance is there in your case for your 470? I currently have two 470s sandwiched together and my top card gets exceedingly hot.

I also tried re-applying some MX-2 on my top 470 and that shaved off a few degrees.

I don't have any money to buy thermal paste. I'll get some pictures up later, all the fans are stock and I haven't switched anything around. Did the best cable management I could, so it's pretty good.
My CPU temps are around 40C on idle, with the stock cooler and paste. My card is in the top slot.

What are you voltages, and temps btw?
