PNY 9600GT Heat Questions - Page 5

post #41 of 43
Just make sure your fan is spinning @ 100 percent when on load .. You actually want your fan @ 100 percent @ all times. To do this simply install Riva Tuner ,,,, and set the fan speed all the way up,,,

In this config way your temps going up to 90c are fine. If you can get the load temp of the GPU to 80c or 70c , then the life of the video card will increase by 2x times two years,, soo you can have the card going strong for 8 years @ 70 to 80ish c ,, where @ 90c on load games will get you 4 years or 6,,, Also the more your GPU is idle the longer life it will have. Idle temps @ even 60c are ok .... GL ,,

I have the same PNY 9600 gt, mine idles around 49 degrees and at load it gets to around 65... I also thought that was hot compared to reviews and what other people have been saying. Considering I have a 120mm fan sucking air out right beside it I doubt thats it.

Im having other problems too but ill save that for another thread.
