Gigabyte 9600gt passive

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have installed a new machine with a passive 9600gt card from Gigabyte. It is not a gamer machine although.

I know such a card can be hot. However during normal operation (Vista usage, word, internet) it reaches ~105C. By GamerHUD tool it is almost the maximum temperature. What will be with 3D? Is it normal?
Maybe a stupid question, but can cables melt if they brush the heatpipe?

The card is in a Gigabyte EP35C-DS3R mobo in a Gigabyte Triton 180 case with both case fun working. Besides this now it uses a simple Intel E1200 celeron cpu, 4x1GB RAM and 2x640GB WD HDD. (This is not the same PC as in my signature.)

That is much too hot. Either something is wrong with the way the heatsink is fitted or you have absolutely no airflow in your case

I use the same setup as recommended in the manual. Besides this the mobo, the VGA and the PC chase with front and back funs are all from Gigabyte.

See if you can find one of those PCI slot fan cards like this: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...p?EdpNo=120565.

I think the card has been engineered to shut off when it reaches a temperature threshold to prevent damage, but you probably don't want that to happen especially when doing something important.

I have closed my chase and it seems made the airflow a bit more positioned and so max temperature goes down to ~60-70C under Vista and max 90C after 2 hours of 3D usage.

Yeah I have one of those graphics cards - installed it and played Tom Clancys Rainbow 6 Vegas for a while - got to 88 degrees!! That was hot enough for me, so I installed an extra fan on the inside side of the case, so it blows thru the main heatsink core... now I get working temps of about 44-50 degrees depending on the game...

I only wish that I knew more of graphics cards and fan assisted cooling before buying this card - I would have made sure to get a fan-cooled card in the first place... In a smaller case as I have, airflow is not the best with a stock standard box... Now Im overclocking the CPU and thats adding to the heat output... larger CPU cooler and case is required...

My 2 cents...

When I had my 96GT (Not passive) I was running 800/1820 with no Voltmods or OC edition and idled 30-35C and never got above 45C...So strap a fan to the heatsink
