Man, the 8800GT can sure withstand high temps - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Thread Starter 
Under load, the GPU STILL runs around the 95 - 100 range.

Apparently the GPU fan is optimized to settle down at that range. (which means leaving it as such isn't neglect. And the fan add-on actually does reduce idle temps, so it's not like it does nothing.)

Yes, I Can force the GPU fan to be 100%, but that makes a really annoying sound.

Oh well, if that's what it's supposed to be, then it should be fine.

IF 95c+ temps are bad for the card, why would the built in fan optimization stuff be set to allow it to go that high?

Dude it's called a flash and you used it. It would take forever to explain how cameras work and how the fan was frozen.

But it seems that you don't have any intention to fix this problem, which you should! Your case is a mess, you need to tidy up those wires and make it so some fresh air can get to the heatsink of your inferno you call a video card............

lol
You sure that fans spinning? Also the case is a mess and heat will build up on other componants also,The air flow will be bad with all those wires hanging about all over your case.Have you tried diffrent programs to view temps also to make sure there in line,And reading around the same.Mynes at 52.3c and thats oc,[Not sure of temps under load].

May sound stupid but is the side fan sucking air in or blowing out,Easy mistake to hace on wrong way around.Also may want to check others to make sure.

Demoship, why aren't you doing anything to fix it?
The card was meant to run in dust-free computers with organized cables. Just because it's running hot doesn't mean it's the card's fault. It's your fault. If you set the card's fan speed to 70%, I doubt you will hear it over the noisy, whiny, crappy 80mm fans. You need to stop blaming the card.

Nooo, why are YOU letting it go that high?

Play with headphones
Might be annoying, but it's a hell of a lot less annoying then having to RMA your card.

The optimizations are typically made for quieter operation rather than ideal temperatures.

eh, sounds like he won't listen to any sense. Enjoy RMAing and waiting for a month for new video card.

My question is where do the wires lead that are coming from inside the case OUT??

Seriously though, your temps are out of control. Whether it's the card fault or not I can't imagine sitting around and just watching your card cook itself.
