I don't know if this is good advice, but damn... ignore what these benchmarks get your temps to and just test your temps by using your video card as you'd normally use it. Play your favorite and most demanding games. Y'know?

+1 to this.

Play GTA V for an hour and chekc VRM temps then. That tends to kill my temps.

When folks discuss temps under load, is GPUZ the standard for introducing that load? It's confusing with so many different tests, PassMark, Valley, Uniengine, FurMark, FurBalls, Hair balls, lol, biggrin.gif

I'm leaning towards a single 295x2, I like the water cooling temps, less noise, and general bad-a$sness of that card. Benchmark results are superb, also positions me for 4K later, once I upgrade my monitor (damn you Samsung for not supporting 4K on my $1200 34" curved panel mad.gif )

PS: Is it true that Crossfire does not support borderless window for games?

I don't know. For me though, I just go by the most demanding game that I own. Right now, that's Crysis 3, and my temps are still quite safe in that game, and so I'm not worried.

nah, i suggested GPUZ 'cause its the closest to the temps i get in BF4, which is a game i find a good gauge for my water loop. now, like Two said, play a demanding game like Notepad.biggrin.gif

I use GPUZ full screen mode for a quick check.

edit: Just stay away from Firemark.

if you really want to go all out . . . do this . . .
