question regarding normal temperatures

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I see a LOT of people posting reviews on gpu's that say things like "card runs very hot, 55-60c" my 2 gpu's (xfx 7950's) run at like 70-85 and they are RATED up to 100 I believe. Are these temperatures much higher than expected?

I use a good air cooling setup, front to back with an internal fan directly on the gpu's. The temperatures seem reasonable to me?

Hello,
Those are okay temps , but when they are cross fired right on top of each other they do get hot because of trapped air,
But I could be wrong and they could be spaced , but then we go into room temps and how good the cooling in the case is!
and plus theys cards run HOT and are HUNGARY!

55-60C isn't hot unless the cards are water cooled. LOL. 90C+ is too hot, 70-85C is fine.

Anything below 90C is acceptable.

keep core temps below 75c and VRM temps below 95c for long term long term stability and safety. 85c is borderline ok. core temps above 90c are not safe.

see thats what I thought. But i see posts of people going insane because cards run above 40C and I couldnt understand it. Must be watercooled systems then but even in that case, below 70 is still really good. Thanks

op, setting your oc (with voltage tweaks) and minding your temps will rely on ambient temp. if you can maintain the same ambient all year round, then good. but if not, then i suggest to watch your temps when warmer weather sets in or set your temp a few degrees lower to make room for summer heat or something.
