XFX 8600GTS - How hot is too hot?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
(Note, I am getting a new cooler.)

How hot is too hot for my xfx 8600gts?

I idle at 63*C and load at 94*C (3 minutes on 3dMark)

Possible defect in card? Should i RMA it back?

The 8800s are rated at 100C max but i'd never run them that hot.. I'd assume the 8600s are the same.

How big is your case and how is your is your air flow? I would try to run your 3d card's fan at 100% fan speed using riva tuner to see if this fixes the temps.

Your sig case is btx so most likely has one fan or less, so maybe get an intake fan and exhaust fan set up. That and a new cooler should reduce the temps and make it possible to oc the card.

Those cards can get that hot. As said they are rated at 100c. However I do beleive that perhaps your heatsink on your card is not making proper contact with the GPU. Airflow will affect temps as said but I would not have thought it would peak so high.

My 8600GTS maxes out at 94 degrees under full load using ATI Tool to scan for artifacts and that's with an intake fan in the front and on the side window and an exhaust fan in the back.

I think it's the nature of the beast with these guys but mine is overclocked to 740 on the core and 2.34ghz on the memory so there's bound to be extra heat generated.

***EDIT***
Holy crap dude, how'd you hit 770 on the core? I can't even get that high without a lock up let alone enough to test for stability. Huge overclock on your memory too. 2.4ghz...you must have this thing volt modded.

Erm, I'm not realy sure o_o, im new to OCing and OC.net in general. THis is my first upgraded part that is not a harddrive or a ram stick. I just went into rivatuner/ntune and just changed it. I haven't OCed the mem yet... I'm not sure how to test for stability/artifacts correctly. I just ran 3DMark06 SM3.0 Graphics Test 1 time (2 videos) and didn't see anything out of the ordinary and called it a day because isaw it hit 94... Fan (controller) doesn't work correctly with this card as I pointed out in an earlier post in this thread.

Edit* ATI Tool doesn't work on my proprietary dell...

Well, if heats a huge problem, pick up a after market cooler, as for me, i got Vantechs IceBerq6, for $35 at newegg. cools my card to a nice cool 45C idle and 64C load.
