Hi there,
Which temp will be very stable for my vga card? Now I just write to overclock.net and everest working there to show me the temps. It shows my gpu temp as 49C now. After I played as Crysis Dx10 1024x768 4xA thetemp was around 60C after an hour. This is normal? And what should I have as keeping the temp even I OC it for better game playing with more fps? What you advice me to use as a fan? I planned to put a suitable cpu fan there but i dont know it can work or not? After I ve sen Xinoxide's fan on it I imagine to put a cpu fan on it too.
Thank you.

yes this is normal GPUs can take alot more heat than CPUs. i would start getting worried around the 95C mark but anything and you're ok

Hey friends,
After renewing my motherboard I tried finally OC to my vga. I wanted to share it here and to hear your comments and advices.
Here is the link for gpu-z

3DMark06


3D Vantage



I think i can give a little more oc to my vga. It is stock fan and the temp is ok. Actually I can see the difference for fps in crysis. Even the stock speed is enough indeed but just curry what can i do with my card..I sofar know about the 3dmark 06 points and i can say that my pşoint is not bad with stock things but vantage is new for me and there is no much point i saw around to compare. yes when i follow the fps when testing is low in some parts but dx10 makes the score like that. Maybe in near future with new drivers it can be difference. Now I tested my gpu with 8.6 version driver.
Thanks.
