safe temperatures 7970

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm currently overclocking and the card goes to high 83c on stock volts, is this too high and can I afford to add some volts?

I think that's fine. A bit on the high side, but not by too much. I think the 6-series cards were up there, so it should be ok. If anything you can customize your fan profile to make it kick in a little earlier if you are worried about heat at the expense of the noise.

I currently have in trixx fan profile minimum fan speed up to 72c, then it goes from there to 100c and 100%

My 6970s ran at 90c+, I don't really consider anything under 85c to be "hot" for a GPU.

is that on the core?

is the stock cooling on AMD good on VRM?

I can't measure my VRM as gpu-z not supporting it yet.

i like to keep my oc'd 6950 at 60C or below... thats really low for a gpu, but the stock cooler does that @ 50-60% so why not?
