GPU FAN SPEED LIMIT

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,
i recently Oc my HD 6950 to HD 6970 Sapphire 2gb, first Games keep crashing couse of the temps (85°) i set Fan speed to 50% ( 3000RPM) is this Fine? , and the temps is in 75-77° i think this is safe temps, and the Gpu Making noise. Do this will couse damage for gpu or other specs?

Rest of my config:
ik 3570k 3.40ghz not Oc
8 gb ram corsair venggeance
Azrock z77 extreme 4
OS : w8.1
PSU : Cooler master GX550w : what do you think about this power ?

thank's in advance.

Your temps are a bit high but it is ok. You can increase the fan speed a bit more if you dont mind the noise. Your GPU wont be harmed by any of that.

Keep the fan under 95% speed and you'll generally be fine. Constantly running it at really really high speeds will wear the fan out faster. The card itself isn't at any real risk.

Are you using any specific overclocking software like Trixx or Afterburner? If you're doing serious overclocking, it would be a really good idea to use a custom, much more aggressive fan profile. Even minor overclocks will push the temperature significantly higher, especially when you get into voltage bumping. I'd recommend a profile that keeps the temperatures under 70C for best results, but the 70–80C range should be OK for long-term use.
