What are safe temps on x800 GTO

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi I have a saphire x800 GTO. But I've been having problems with it. Every time I play a graphically intensive game after a while my monitor stop recieving a signal. The rest of the PC is still running, Altho the system crashs, and it wont reset, I have to turn it off completely to get it running again.

So I've got ATI tool and was looking at the temp monitor, after playing Call of Duty 2 for about 10mins my temps were showing at 116C. When I'm not doing much the temp sits around 60C
I'm sure this isn't normal!

Edit:
I also have a program that I use to crank up my cpu fan.. it helps I guess..not sure what the name of the program is off the top of my head.. i'm at work right now... is your computer really quite? if so maybe you could crank up the fan well maybe..

That is NOT normal. That's way past the temp you should have. Downclock it a bit and install some casefans or something. Clean out your case aswell. That's waaaayyyy toooo hooottt!!! Try some as5 on the core and a fan on the back of the card. Keep it UNDER 70 LOAD if you want to keep it for longer than a few weeks.

Just to clarify, are the temperature measurements in ATI tool measured in Degrees F or Degrees C? I cant see anything that tells you which.

ya your gonna fry your card... u NEED to cool it, buy a aftermarket cooler or somthing and get some extra case fans... or u WILL kill the card

I've not had the card very long. I think maybe I should take it back. It shouldn't be overheating that easily. I'm not over clocking it or anything, its just running as standard.

could it be poor air circulation in your pc case?

Hi! I have a ATI X800 GTO too and in TRIXX there is a VPU Temp and a Board Temp. Which one is important or which one are you talking about here? I have set the card to performance and ran it in F.E.A.R. for a while and it said that it got up to 80 for the VPU but I think the board is always something like 10 less than VPU. Can anyone explain the difference?

ATITool reports the temps. in celsius. My GTO2 with a VF700Cu goes all the way to 66-70*C after one hour of artifact scanning in ATITool (overclocked to 600/600).

I have the same card, right now with doing nothing it's at 33, when I overclocked to 567/590, it got up to around 65 playing F.E.A.R. Make sure the fan is running, maybe they forgot to put a compound on the connection or something. Also check it with another program, I'm using RivaTuner. There's a little arrow button on the Main tab next to the word Customize, that will open OC options and let you watch the temperature.
116 degree Celsius = 240.8 degree Fahrenheit
