Acceptable heat for MSI 8800 GTS 640 MB? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
That'd be a neat idea, except for the fact that i don't relaly have the space to put something like a fan next to it. i might take off the side panel though =/

Yeah side panel removal should increase the air flow, hope it helps ya temps.

Mine runs hot, I'm at 64C idle with the fan at 75% and the side panel off, and a spare 120mm propped against it. I'm running stock 500/800 too. Luckily I've never seen it go over 80C load though.

I am seriously considering running water on this puppy. I don't even have the guts to OC it at the moment and it has totally ruined my silent PC with my nifty passive CPU cooler, I have considered the thermalright HR-03 but I really want to get the heat OUT of my case, not just remove more from the GPU and dump it into the CPU. Since I'm running the CPU passive it really is goofing up my temps.

So, it seems that a bit of the problem was fixed when i took off the side panel. I went from 78C to 63C idle. And my cpu went from 57 to 42 just by taking it off. I might get a small fan later and point it at the interior, who knows.

Exactly.


This card really dumps a lot of heat into the case. I wish that the grille on the back of the PCI slot wasn't so restrictive.

the gts is way too expensive to have poor cooling.. spend about 50-100 dollars on nice heatsinks (cpu) and fans (video card), being cheap about cooling not worth breaking that card =\\

The cooling on the card is just fine. It was the ambient/case airflow. Removing the case cover dropped temps dramatical.

That's also proof something isn't right with your case airflow. If you have a good airflow, there should not be much difference with and without the panel, and if you have excellent airflow, temps should even be a little lower with the panel due to the 'tunnel' effect.

These cards really do run warm.

Im seriously considering a new coolermaster case that Ive just seen released that incorporates a mesh side panel & allows for the install of 4 fans that cover the whole inside of the side panel.

I actually believe that just good front-to-back airflow is the best for these cards, and that side fans actually disrupt the airflow and has a negative effect...

Yea, maybe I should have mentioned also that the case incorporates a cut-out section in the top of the case also incoporating a mesh grill that also allows for a fan to be fitted inside the grill (forcing heat out through the top).
