Are these temps good for a 7600GS?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Overclocked my 7600GS cause I read that most supplies declock their products so that they live long and some other reason Well, they are suppose to go faster so I overclocked it. I got the core to 499MHZ and the memory to 431MHZ and it runs fine, I'm using stocked cooling in a cold room with 2 outtake fans and a huge AMD fan for a 3800X2. Well, based on what CPU-Z says, it went as high as 70.C on Crysis and I'm wondering if thats ok? It is a EVGA 7600GS 256MB PCI-E (stocked is 400/400). The side panel is also taken off just for quick access. Anyways, if anyone can help, thx

70C load is fine....if you wanna get your full load on that card scan for artifacts using ati tool. Id be concerned if and when you hit 80's.


EDIT -
hang on a sec, did you say you got those readings from CPU-z? since when does CPU-Z read GPu temps? ..did i miss that one? i suggest you download ati tool or rivatuner... they should give you your proper temps.

also with that side panel off it sends your ambient up cause it brings in pure airflow. Unless you game and run daily use with that side panel off (not something i would do) get a reading of your temps with the panel on.

good luck!

under a sensors tab in tech powerup gpu-z 0.1.7 it shows the GPU temperature... like, right now it shows 42.C on idel with a GPU core clock at 551.0MHZ and GPU memory clock at 437.0MHZ... im going to game it up here and see if any artis appear...

ohhhh okay GPU-Z, that makes sense. I dont mean to be a harda** but above you listed Cpu-Z, thats what confused me. I should of put two and two together anyway....goodluck!

Those temps are fine, I don't recall my 7600GS ever going over 75 degrees. They don't run quite as hot as the 8 series cards because of the lower clocked memory/core.

Ya, sorry about that nick... haha, after all this time, finally found out it was GPU-Z . umm..., just a few more questions, i can get this core to about 650mhz and mem is 400 (stock). I'm using the nvidia temp watching thing and just running games in windows. But just a few more questions, usually with ntune, whenever an overclock is made it does a test, but after 650 core speeds it stopped doing the test with small increments here and there. Thinking that the test failed and didn't noticed it I just restarted after trying stock speeds and lower. I'm wondering if that's bad, cause I got it to 680 without any sort of testing. The performance is amazing, the temps only go to 70-75ish now and average frame rates on source are about 90-110 in rooms sometimes maxing to 180-240fps, but on average its about 60-80, all settings maxed, no aa or af on 1280x800 in window. I'm also wondering if there is a way to check if this powersupply is not capable to holding these high clock speeds and could that be the reason to why the tests always fail, except this one time, whenever the core goes over 650.

I got a coolermaster 400watt psu, the core and the ram was auto clocked now to 2010 mhz and 401ish for some odd reason with this 3800x2 (939).

I also heard of people declocking the memory to gain more clock speeds, how does that help? What would the overclocking of the ram would do for this card, just basically run more textures faster? Btw, thanks for the help

I should really give ntune a try... at present I use atitool for my OC and was able to get to 650Mhz on the core and my memory to 485Mhz but this has varied a lot depending on the drivers... (my present OC is 650/450)... the reason for my post is just to say that in atitool I could manually verify the OC was OK by scanning for artifacts...

Another good way to check if your OC is stable is to run say... 3dmark06 and check if you see any artifacts (or play your fave game)...

I just love my 7600GS

ya i got my old evga 7600 gs core to 580 mhz and the memory to 465 on air. and mine never went over 60 degrees full load.

I see that there is some people that were able to get the core to around 800mhz and some other people got the ram to go to about 1000mhz, how do you do that. I start getting artifacts around 465, (930mhz) and the systems shuts down around 650 core. Is it due to improper cooling of the ram? or is it cause of the powersupply not pushing out enough juice...????? anyways, thx
