bfg 6800 gs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i have it oc'd to 400/1050(stock) and load temps of about 60 or so, should i push for more? i had seen another post under this one with relatively the same topic but i wanted to clarify my card and get some body's exact temps on what to stop at. the bfg utility says the cut off temp is like 120c hell by then i wont even have a card will i? it seems like it would just disintegrate

the stock clocks 370/1050

GFX cards will run at very hight temps and that 120°C is when thermal throttling will kick in to avoid damage. It wouldn't recommend running too much over 70°C as the life of the card will decrease the hotter it runs. If it's stable and no artifacts then I'd go for it.

Side message to the ptrogen, dont buy bfg . Unless you get some sort of discount always use pricegrabber, zipzoomfly, or newegg.com to purchase gear. BFG is always overpriced and never comes that much overclocked. XFX is usually cheaper and faster than BFG, i name xfx because they too OC their products to start. Just thought you should know.

yeah i know bfg is usually high but mine was only 200 so i grabbed it while i could, and it had some good non-oc/oc reviews, i tried to get a x800 agp but they went quicker than greased owl shait
