ATI Radeon X850 Pro Temperatures - Page 2

post #11 of 19
lolllll, I'm having the same issue..=/
I'm currently running everything in stock speeds. No modding or any overclocking business. My X850 Pro's speeds are 500/500.
Here comes the diappointing part...
Everytime I play a game, the heat dramatically increases. I use Atitool to check my Celcius temperature and it rises at an instant. The temperautre reaches around 70 C strait throughout the game. BUT, when i switch back to desktop view (no 3d), it instantly drops back to around 37C.
Sigh...I love this card too much and I don't want it to overheat that insanely..
And buying coolers is not my perspective anytime soon... Sighhh..
(installing coolers in not my thing..the stock cooling looks + picture soo cool )
P.S: My card has the potential of unlocking all 16 Pipelines!!!
(I'm happy about that hehe.)

First Off I would like to say thank you to the folks that run this board. It's got some great information on overclocking on it.

I just received my X850pro yesterday and it unlocked up to the full 16 pipes. Im very happy that it did. I have a couple of questions for people who have actual data not speculation.

I have seen several people post different acceptable heat levels here for the gpu. When I clock the card up to 530/590 it hops all the way up in to the 80-80c range. IF I bring it back down to 510/540 it runs in the 60's. It runs rock solid at all speeds I have tried. What is the real threshold for this card? I really dont want to burn it up.

Anyone know the effect of running the ran at 100% all the time? What type of life span could I expect. I have it locked on now and the GPU at 515/540 runs from 45c-55c. I would hate for the fan to crap out in a month though.

Thanks in Advance.

OOPS I meant to start a new thread on this.

I just bought mine as well. Dell Dimension 8300 with ducted cooling for CPU, Power supply exhaust fan, and a Cheapie 34 CFM Mad Dog PC slot cooler placed 2 slots over from the X850 Pro AGP.

Card stock runs 52C GPU and 43C Chip at idle, 76/77C GPU and 51C Chip under load.

Card overclocked to 555 Core 560 memory runs around 79C GPU and 53 Chip under load. This is without the extra 4 pipes being enabled (no floppy drive).

I don't see the huge problem here. At 80c thats only 176F for the GPU. The chip/board is maxing out at 127.4F

try unscrewing the plate ontop of your graphics card with the design on it .. if you can and you will find a huge chunk of dust more than likely and if you have any more questions just follow the link on my signature to find out more. oh and if you think blowing in your graphics card cuts it but it doesnt it actually pushes the dust further into the heatsink making it overheat even more

My ATI X850 Pro ran under 70C with stock cooling. Your ambient case temp is too high. Either your case isn't passing enough cool air through it, OR the temp in your house is too high. Sometimes you need to sacrafice quiet for good case cooling. I would also recommend the arctic cooling silencer for your card. It runs nearly silent, and exhausts the hot air out of your case.

OK under 70C for core/GPU? Under what loads? My numbers above are using the ATITool artifact test running for 10 minutes +. When playing huge games like World of Warcraft with everthing maxed the card sits around 74-77 core temperature and 50-51 Memory temperatures.

I get similar temps with the Dell case split wide open so the card has open air all around it. Overall the card runs at mid to high 70s for the core and 50-53 for the actual memory/card temperature at full load. Outside of any 3D app BOTH are under 50C.
