When Im playing an online game the GPU goes up to 83c. And in browsing its about 63c. Is the temperature alright?

SPEC
Intel Pentium E2140 - Genuine Intel(R) CPU 2140 1.60GHz
ASUS P5K SE
Samsung DDR2 1024 MBytes (X2)
NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS

id say anything over 100c would be too hot. but it also depends on your room and case temperature. just dont let it go over 100c.

Hi theiquired. As that guy ^ said, anything up to 100 degrees C probably won't cause any issues but the lower the better. A load temp of aroun 83 as you say is completely fine. The idle temp could be low so try improving the cooling setup and also make sure when idle no background programs/applications are pushing the card a little.

Thank you for the advice guys!

If you have extra thermal paste you can try reapplying it on the GPU.

An 8400gs? Is that passive cooled? If so then I can see why it's getting so hot, those cards don't really pump out much heat but they do benefit from having their own fans. Make sure you clean out all the dust from the heat sink and get some proper airflow in your case. If for some weird reason the card dies or degrades (highly unlikely at that temp) at least the 8400's are less than £20 to buy new now... wink.gif

As a general rule of thumb, though; any temperature up to 100c is safe for a nVidia card. thumb.gif

Yep Nvidia 8400 GS. It isnt passive cooled, it has a fan. The dust from heat sink were nearly cleared but I dont think there is proper airflow going in my case. My case is a slim case so does that make the heat increase? Its quite slim that it is very quite tricky on disassembling the power supply. The others are ok to disassemble.

Having a small case with few fans and a crowded interior will wreak havoc to your temperatures. Good thing you don't have a more powerful card than the 8400, I doubt anything else would cope. rolleyes.gif
If you can, try to install another case fan, (provided that you have room). Other than that, buy a new case?

Well, I'll probably buy a new desktop instead of placing another fan or a new case. I've been using this pc for a long time. I should have thought buying a large case when I ordered my pc..
