7600gt super hot

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
i know there has probably been 101 topics on people graphics cards overheating but here goes

idle : rarely below 50

full load : anything up to 80

this is with the stock cooler, ive allready ordered an aftermarket cooler but im just wondering, are these temperatures really normal?

i get the occasional artifact on some games, ive had to underclock it

stock gpu 575mhz, down now to 550
stock mem 1.6ghz now at 1.5

and it seems ok, but really i shoudlent have to do this?

If you got artifacts, it isn't normal. You're supposed to get NO artifacts to consider an overclock and/or a stock card stable. Did you try overclocking before, and got artifacts on the process?

Because, it happened to me. I tried overclocking and what I got was artifacts. I nearly burnt my card, but here it is, fine as gold. So what it seems to me is that the heat is making it crumble. Does your case have enough air flow? Is your GPU equipped on the best spot possible? Do you have heat outtakes?

It's odd to have a STOCK burning GPU, heck. I live in Puerto Rico, mother of all hot countries, and my GPU doesn't run so hot...even at stock. :/

Weird. Where do you live, and what are your ambient temperatures?

80C is the temp you want to stay at or go below but not above. If you are not Artifacting then all is good. However High temps like that are probably due to high Case temps...Have you got any Case fans in your case bringing in good airflow ?

You need to reseat or RMA that card. My 7900gt (Not volt modded) idles at 40c and loads at about 60c with the stock cooler. The 7900gt stock cooler isn't much beefier than the 7600gt cooler either.

Graphics card should have zero artifacts at stock speeds. Most likely you got a bad card that will probably die soon. It would be best to RMA it back.

I'd say the card is faulty and to RMA.
