Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB - Max Temp.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Thanks to suggestions here, I bought the Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB OC version Graphics card:

http://www.gigabyte.in/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4647#ov

I am happy with the performance, however, I have my games in ultra settings and it looks beautiful and I wish to improve frame rates a bit.

The Original GPU Clock is 1137/1189 (Base/Boost) and the Memory clock is 7010

When I OC it, I have taken it upto 1200/1252 (Base/Boost) and the Memory Clock to 7150.

I checked in the game plays that GPU Z shows the Max temp. (not average) as 75 degrees, is this safe?

I am aware that the max recommended temp. this card can go is 79 degrees, however, I am in doubt if the GPU Z is showing the GPU core temp or temp of the heat sink. If it is not showing core temp. then I think I have to add about 8 degrees extra and assume that the GPU core is hotter than what is shown right?

Also, how much temparature can this card tolerate? My older Zotac 560 2GB card could take upto 99 degrees and ran upto 81 degrees at the peak of gameplay. Would this card function at that temparatures?

Thank you for your answers

75c is perfectly fine. Try to keep it under 85c and you will probably never see any issue heat related.

If you really want to push the card, you can make a custom fan profile in msi afterburner to lower the temps.
