nVIDIA 8600GT heat concerns - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Thanks for all your advice, guys! I had no idea what the safe temperature range for video cards was, and just wanted to make sure.

I know this is off-topic, but if <70C is the safe area for GPU temp, what is the safe area for CPU temp?

Well you're obviously don't care about how loud your computer is. I'm quite the quiet computer enthusiast. I like my machines to be as quiet as possible. And this current card is pretty loud.

By the way, I am not a huge gamer. I mostly only play racing games. This 8600GT runs GRID just fine, so I probably won't be upgrading until something more demanding comes out. I do a lot of folding with my rig though, so I'd probably spend more money on an E8400 or something.

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
it runs perfectly fine, my computers been stable for the 2 years i've had it, and with the modded drivers i have, i have absolutely no overheating problems.
