Installed new XFX 8800GTS Alpha Dog

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just installed the 8800gts replacement for my 9600gt.

Seems to be running decent. I only had time to play crysis for about 10 mins. Rivatuner said my idle temp is 60C and load went as high as 67C with the fan control set to auto. This is at stock speeds, no OC. Are these normal temps or seem high?

BTW. This is the card I bought from tigerdirect for $189 shipped. Not a bad deal IMHO.

That's actually quite typical temps. My 8800GT Alpha Dog idles @ 53ºC and loads well over 65ºC with ambient temps ranging from 23-25ºC!!!

I believe thats average, My old 8800GTX idled at 59* and got up to 78* at times on load. I believe that the 88xx series just runs hot.
