I'm hitting 100 degrees C with 7600GT - Page 2

post #11 of 22
It could be that you can't control your fan's rpm on a prebuilt rig. That'd explain why it's not ramping up.

You should get a new PSU. A underpowered PSU can cause your 7600GT to overheat.

Clean your card out. you can buy air duster from wal-mart and spray it insiide the fan on the 7600GT, see walmart is good for PC's and PC cleaning haha

104*C?! That's hot enough to melt the plastic fan!
Check for dust and reseat the hsf.
post #15 of 22
Have you actually touched the exposed copper on the side of the HSF unit? You might have a faulty temp diode other then that i would suggest as the others have said and make sure the copper fins are full of dust stopping air from passing over them...

it happened once on mine, it was FULL of dust after a week, and i dont really live in a dusty country or city...

after cleaning it just once it was fine, and after getting a major processor upgrade (2.2 single to 2.7 X2) i never had any more problems with it...

...then i sold it and got two HD2600s and haven't looked back

Clean your HSF and remount it. This will solve yoru problem.

For those who suggest RivaTuner.... EVGA Precision is the same thing!
Once again...

I have this card...no matter what PSU you have, the card has a dinky fan and heatsink. You could remove the fan...clean the yucky paste with alchohol wipes, and reseat it with artic silver...the heat sink needs a tiny tiny dip of AS, and I mean tiny.

Or you could use an Iceberq 4 pro and try to place those large memory chip heat sinks on 2 of each RAM. The fab comes with the sticky white goop...better get a tube of AS.

My card idles at 49c ~ 51c.
Gaming load (I only play driving games), while playing Test Drive Unlimited hits about 58c ~ 62c.

I will reseat the fan once I get my tube of AS.

Agree with bvzxa. I had this card also, AGP version. I could not control the fan speed on my EVGA version. Heatsink is tiny, just a bit bigger than the size of a SB motherboard stock cooler.

If you reseat cooler and apply new grease/paste it should help a bit. I did mine a while back and temps went from mid 80sC to about high 70C.

If you plan on keeping it for a bit of time, invest in a Zalman VF700. It's about the price of a gas tank.
