Hey all, my GPU is a Gigabyte HD7970 OC 3GB and i use AIDA64 and my GPU DIODE was 58 degrees and my GPU VRM was 62, is that to hot?

after a quick read from what i have read that is okay, i have the HAF X case and my GPU in slot one, however if i put it in slot 3 it will have the
vga duct fan and the side fan blowing onto it, will that be better? also if i put it in slot 3 will it still run at x16?

but just to be sure about the temps, are they okay?

VRM temps are fine. is that on GPUZ? You should be able to touch the VRM's at that temp for a few seconds. 62-65C seems to start to burn my hand...lol

I saw oldddddd cards tested for VRM temps and they were reaching 100-120C temps and didn't blow. You'll be fine. Just keep a fan on them and your fine. thumb.gif

VRM temps in the 60's (C) seem really nice.

On my 5850 I used to have the VRM R4 heatsink to keep the VRM temps down to 50 ish iirc, but I had to remove it when I installed a new cpu cooler because there was no room for both. So now my VRM temps are in the 80's and maybe higher I think. Still working a week into it, but I hope I can get to buy a 7970 Sapphire card with a VRM heatsink on it to be safe in the long run.

VRM temps can supposedly take more heat than cpu's so my 5850 card might do well anyhow I guess. At the very least I have the Accelero Twin Turbo fan/cooler blowing right onto the VRM's, that has to be good for something I hope.

On my gpu there are 3 fans but i dont know if they draw air in to the heatsink or blow it out, because if it blows out then i put a fan blowing onto it wont it just blow hot air back into it?

And i currently use AIDA64 trial version for temps
