What are good GPU temps?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
This is my first time watercooling a GPU and actually it's my first time having a pretty good graphics card at all. I have the MCW60 on my new 8800GT SC and I'm idling at 25C. Is that a good temp? What is a safe range for this type of card?

Are you bragging? lol... Great temps

Edit: i would think a safe range would be anything less than 70 degrees C

25C is great temperature to idle at. Im going to guess that at load you will max at anywhere from 40-45C, which is very good. Nice waterblock!

Very good temps. I idle at 43*C and load to 55*C. What does your loop look like? Mine goes CPU->NB->GPU so my GPU already gets warm water....

Not bragging believe me, I'm a complete noob when it comes to GPU's.

My loop goes Pump > Rad > CPU > GPU > Rad. Also does anyone know of some good GPU temp monitors? I'm just using everest right now but I'd like at least one other to compare to.

Nvidia control panel, Rivatunner, Ati tool

I like Rivatunner because it allows you to record so you know your max during game etc
