High temps??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I got a XFX 6800Ultra, overcloced to 444/1230 MHz
My idle temp are 48, and my load temp are 74.
Is that a little high??

I still got the stock cooler on, so it might help getting a Zalman VF700-CU?
Whats other peoples temps that got this card???

Those temps are fine. Yes, an aftermarket cooler would bring them down a bit, but they're certainly nothing to worry about.

Load temps seem a tiny bit high, I don't personally own one but IMO you'd want to keep load close to 70c, as allways lower is better. An aftermarket cooler would be a good investment, but there might be air flow restricting your current cooling, take it out clean all the dust off and make sure theres enough air getting to it. I just cleaned my in-law's computer because idle temps on the CPU were 54, load was 65, after I cleaned it all up it immediatly droped to 41 idle and 47 load. Dust really kills cooling as well as air flow restrictions, I'd suggest even getting an exhaust fan to put in a slot or two below your video card, would help lowering the temp a little.
