nVIDIA 8600GT heat concerns

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
It's been a hot day, and unfortunately my house doesn't have air conditioning...and I only have stock cooling.

My GPU's peak temperature during the day was (according to Everest) 55C. Now that it's night out, my 8600GT's temp has dropped to 47C. However, I don't know if this is still safe.

If I launch any game (such as Counter-Strike or Grand Theft Auto), my temperature skyrockets to about 55C: the same temperature it was at in the middle of a blistering heat wave.

Are these temperatures something to be concerned about? Is aftermarket cooling absolutely necessary?

I don't know if the 8800gts can handle more heat or not, but I've gone past 70C with it if I remember correctly...

My 8600GTS hit about 84 C with the stock cooler, a zalman VF1000 later, and it's lucky to get to to around 50odd.


Those temps you're reporting are fine, the 8600's shouldnt really burn out unless you're stressing them at 80-85+ IMO.

Infact, I'm quite impressed with those on stock cooling (I am in the less than toasty UK), though perhaps my HSF wasn't on quite right to start with..

Not a problem sounds fine to me, the 8600GTS i have runs hotter, that card will be fine! If it worries you down load riva tuner from the down loads page and increase the fan speed a little

I'd also have to agree. Those temps are just fine for an 8600 . I had two in SLI (GTS's) and one of them loaded near 80*C and the other around 75*C. And that was with the fans cranked up to 60%. So yeah, you're just fine. No worries.

I have the silent version of the 8600gts and it scares me :swearing: Without case ventaliation it will hit 100+ playing Crysis (on medium ) which is freakin hot, i ziptied an 80mm fan under mine for peace of mind

I dont think Gigabyte should produce fanless cards, for a HTPC sure but it will still have a CPU fan and im sure gigabyte could produce a really quiet cooler if they wanted to

55 C is nothing. Mine hits 66 C with the stock cooler. I believe it's fine up to 70 C. I did just order an Accelero S1 though so I can overclock it a bit more.

Paying for a cooler come on go get a cheap 3870 for $100 and your laughing Admit it its a good idea, i was not impressed with the 8600 series from nvidia
