Nvidia GeForce 6600 running hot

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Is it totally bad that my 6600 is running at 90C after about half an hour of FSX?

Speedfan says it's 90, but is it right?

That sounds wayy too hot.

Thanks in advance for your input.

6600's always ran hot as far as I know, My old 6600GT used to hit those temps.. But that was with passive cooling though...

90C um yes you should be worried lol. I know i would. My 6200 only goes up to 54c or 55c at the highest. Is your room temps alright? What drivers are you using? what do you inside your tower?

Also, your card might be dying who knows.

Yeah, I think using rivatuner or gpu-z (if it has a temp monitor) would give a more accurate display.

Try to convince yourself it just died on you, rip it out with your eyes closed, chuck it into the garbage, and there you go: A great excuse to get a 9800GX2 or a new 4-series ATI

Yes, thanks Tony,

As I'm talking to you on AIM while you posted this reply.

Even though you were wrong..

Note my "Future Upgrades" section.


You can probably tell that I'm on a budget of sorts.

Aww don't go for an 8600, go for a 3850, 9600, or an 8800GT 256!
