x800xl temps??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First question is are the tempertures in tray tools measured in C not F? And if card is running 42x at idle and max 71x when gaming is that pretty normal? And do I need to up power supply right away or will it damage card? Box says minimum 300 watt?

According to your specs you've got a 400 watt power supply. 71C is about right for a load temp on that card. Video cards can take A LOT more heat than a regular processor so I wouldn't worry too much,
