HD 7970 Temp in Counter Strike is over 70C - Page 3

I'm still suspicious of drivers, crossfire profiles, and CS compatibility. (And especially suspicious of crossfire with it.)

The only problem i have is when a game is badly optimized, like Batman AC was when it first came out for me, normally it will either run the gpus too hard or not enough. If the gpu is getting a really small load, then really there should be no heat. The only guess i have, and i may be wrong, but if a program in the drivers is responsible for collecting temps, that maybe the drivers are at fault, like you said.

Keep the stats up, go into the game and check the load later.
For having no FPS cap, a stock fan profile and XFire, that temperature doesn't suprise me.
Quake 1 will heat your GPU to the thermal limit if there's absolutely no frame limit and your getting 10,000FPS (without there being a CPU bottleneck).

Is there a way to manually assign FPS cap?

Yup, NWN2 will do the same thing. The thing screams away at 250+ FPS.

 

One way to limit FPS is to run in full-screen mode and then use V-Sync. That will force the FPS to the refresh rate of your monitor, which is normally 60 Hz = 60 FPS. (Some monitors are 120 Hz though)

 

EDIT: Roly103090 beat me to the v-sync by 27 seconds!

There's nothing at all wrong here. Anybody saying otherwise doesn't have these cards obviously.

Mine reaches about 75-78*C or so at stock settings, stock fan profile. There's nothing at all wrong with that. My card reaches 83-86*C or so at my overclock in my signature. Any higher of an overclock requires a really high fan profile to keep it below 68*C load...and I can't stand the noise, so I leave the fan at stock.

With a stock fan profile...your temperatures are perfectly normal.

Mine 75c @ 1100 / 1500 with 50% fan all the way to 100% and that's in 18c ambient.

The cards are still hot it's as simple as that. It happens. You could put them under water if you wanted them to stay cool and quiet.

In CSS bring up the console, type fps_ (can't remember the rest) it should auto-fill.
It will be something like fps_limit. Put in 62 or 122. 'fps_limit 122'

Or you can use Afterburners frame limiter in the OSD. If your serious about CSS, vsync is a sin.

Respectable temperatures given you most likely have not set up fan profiles, therefore, the automatic fan settings aren't cooling your cards as well as they should be.

However, older games are often poorly optimized for newer hardware and it is very possible that CS and the HD 7970 drivers do not get along well.

Perhaps someone who owns an HD 7970 and CS can weigh in and give you a more definitive answer, but I'm willing to bet that it's an optimization issue and that it's "normal" although not necessarily desirable.

 

Other users report 83C at 53% fan speed in BF3 with the 7970, for what that's worth.

I'd say that settles it. As I suspected originally, it may seem hot for the load, but given drivers, crossfire, older game, reference design, reference fan profiles, and two users who have the card and the game installed both reporting the same thing...

 

I'm going to go with "normal, but perhaps not desirable."  :P

lol that's good to know..

But still I think these cards run way too hot and loud..

I might have to go custom cooling with these cards.. there is no way I can stand all this noise..
