waking up with a gpu at 80C has to do with cpu oc ?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello, yesterday night i overclocked my cpu by 40%, it is now at 2.6ghz (e6320@1.86).
i left the pc turned on at night and went to sleep, after 10 hours i woke up and i see on everest that my gigabyte 8600gts was at 80C.
i didn't believe it so i opened the side panel and touched it, and guess what? I should have believed everest it still hurts lol


anyway, i didn't get the gpu that hot even when i was playing heavy games for hours.
how could that be? maybe it has to do with the cpu overclocked or something?

What were your ambient temp and do you have good air flows in your case?

the heat from the CPU (when overclock) have been dump into your case, having more heat in the case than before, and the heat's going toward to graphic card cooler.

Indeed. You may want to do what I have done.

The picture below shows that I have added a 120mm fan where my PCI slots are at. The video card heat is dumped beside the PCI metal slots, the fan will bring them out to stop interference with the cooler.

Taidinh that's an incredible idea man! because my gpu cooling system is passive system.
it's silent pipe 3, no fan in it.

and im going to buy 2-3 12cm fans to make a good air flow in my case.
but still, 80C ?!?
god damn

Youre not tightening enough or your case is loose

i just noticed something, in the guide i used for ocing my cpu it said there that i have to set the pcie frequency to 100mhz, maybe that was too high for it?
i changed it back to auto. but i understood from someone that when i do OC i want to keep the settings without AUTOs set.

that's the most reasonable explaination i thought of, what do you think?
