Can 62c gpu temp burn my fingers?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Can it? But still is it a safe temo
post #2 of 17
Considering I can sit in a Sauna at well over 62c and not come out with burns all over my body I would say no biggrin.gif And 62c is a great temp for any GPU core.

No it cant and your GPU doesnt care about that temp. Stay under 90 and you are fine.

The answer is very simple
hold your finger on it and see what happens after few minutes:thumb:
please let us know what happened after

Ya better make sure you're grounded before touching yourself your gpu.

While 62c probably isn't hot enough to burn you, there's a whole lot of difference between touching 62c steam and 62c metal (or silicon).

Metals conduct heat much, much better than steam and air do. If you place your hand on 62c metal it will transfer heat a lot faster to your hand, than say 62c air would.

This is why when you're in a 70 degree (Fahrenheit) room the air feels OK, but touching metal feels cool. Even though they're the same temperature, the heat transfer between the metal and your hand is much quicker than the air and your hand.

Of course silicon isn't the greatest of conductors (there's a reason why it's called a semi-conductor) but it even then it has a thermal conductivity that's roughly 6,000 times that of air at STP. In a sauna you also have the water condensing out of the air which does add heat to your skin, but because the steam is not 100c I would assume it's not very much.

Why are you still making threads about this?

http://www.overclock.net/t/1547261/61-64c-temp-r9-290-gpu

Temps are fine

Temps are fine

http://www.overclock.net/t/1547183/whats-the-risk-in-touching-the-vent-or-pcb-of-a-gpu-while-running-heavy-games

Shouldn't be touching your GPU whilst it's operating, there are zero reasons to do so.

Don't put a towel on your pc there are zero reasons to do so

http://www.overclock.net/t/1547154/after-touching-several-time-pcb-vents-etc-of-my-gpu

Sounds like your GPU might have a problem, maybe you should stop messing with it while it's operating?

My advice is whenever you have some thought of touching your card while it's on, just do the opposite and leave it alone.

Holy crap! OP I mined 24/7 for weeks with my cards hitting 80-82. Play your games and relax on the temp trippin'. YOU'LL BE FINE.

As crazy as it sounds, when it comes to hot surfaces temperature can seem relative to use based on the ability of the material to transfer that heat. This may be hard to grasp for some at first, but it is the reason why you can walk on hot coals at a brisk walking pace but if you step on a metal plate that same temperature your foot will be cooked right too it eek.gif.
