ATI 4350 overheating on Idle

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a Gigabyte ati 4350 (stock clock/stock fan) and it's idling at around 67-69°C. I know its probably from the ridiculous room temperature, but is there anything I can do to cool it down?

Get some compressed air and blow the dust off, if it's already clean you could try to re apply some thermal paste because in the majority of the cases the company apply too much. Also you could open your side panel it would help cooling it a little bit.

Thanks for the tip, does the same paste that you use for a CPU work on video cards?

Yes, they do, you can use the same thermal paste for both CPU's and GPU's.

Also, as Panther said, clean the heatsink by removing any dust.

Hey thanks guys, I think I'll do that right now before it dies.

Anyone know whats the max temperature it should go up to before it's considered dangerous?
