MAX GPU temp is 100C????

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Holy Cow I read somewhere that the max acceptable temp for an ATI card is 100C. If this is true, they I could overclock my video card like CRAZY. Right now at 550/330 its at 60C MAX. I have done test runs to 600/350 and its still like 65-70. Can I push farther

You'll reach the maximum limit of the core before you ever generate enough extra heat by just upping clock speeds.

There's many other limitations to overclocking other than just temperature. The core or whatever you're overclocking will just hit a point that it will not be able to run any faster stabley without an increase in voltage. You'll hit that limit long before you hit the heat limit. Things also work more efficiently when they're cooler, so you'd want it to be as cool as possible anyway.
