What is the 8800gtx temps?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey I just put my new computer together and I set it all up. I have 1 bfg8800gtx. It idles 46c and I started nfs prostreet and the temp went right to 54.4c and I turned up the case fans to max and the temp went down 53.3c. The whole time I was playing the game the card was at 59c I know this card runs hot but is the temps ok? What temps are not ok? Is there anyway to cool this card down. The rest of the compter temps are great, the case was at 26.7c and the cpu was at 25c the whole time.

Thanks

sorry I'm always using Fahrenheit. I change everthing to Celsius. So it's running at 59c.

Mine idles at 62C. Well, one of them. The other idles at 67C.

I think the card will go into "protection" if it hits 100 or 120C so even 70-80 is fine.

Yeah guys GFX cards handle high temperatures fine, having your card running @75c is fine for it, 59c - heck, even a CPU could run @ that temperature

Ok cool. I put it under load last night for 2 hours and it hit 65c. The room temp was 25c So I guess my case really dose move a lot of air and dose have great air flow

thanks a lot guys.

I fitted 2 additional fans to my Leadtek 8800GTX.
An old Intel cpu fan cut down and a normal run of the mill 80mm fan.
The Intel fan was in addition to the std cooling fan and the extractor was fitted iver the slots in the casing..
I attached the fans with Loctite grey silicon.

My temps dropped about 10 deg C with this mod alone..
The best thought was when I put it under water..Zalman block and temps fell ANOTHER 25 deg C over the fan mod temps !!!!

Best move ever !!!!!!!!!
