MSI X1800 XT 59 C Temperature normal?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello guys. I'm a newbie overclocker.. Er (I'm still working on a full title, cuz I haven't really overclock my computer yet -- still reading on it). I replaced the MSI X1800 XT stock fan with the ARCTIC COOLING Accelero X2 Fluid Dynamic Bearing VGA Cooling Fan with Heatsink and now when I check the temperature via Catalyst 6.3 overdrive's Graphic Processor Status it shows it 59 Celsius (it fluctate (sp?) from 57 C to 59 C)... Is this right? Is this temperature normal?? I'm clueless

Thanks a lot for any assistance.

No way. What you may consider doing is replacing the thermal pad used for the GPU with some arctic silver.

That is perfectly fine. Open ATItool, click show 3d view, watch the cube spin and check your temperatures after about 10 minutes. If it is over 90 C, consider better cooling. By the sounds of it, you're alright.

Bigval is right, those temps are normal. ATI x1xxx cards tend to run very hot. Your card also has adjustable voltages so I am sure you can push those temps even further if you wanted to.

Yea too bad the Accelero coolers aren't even any good.

The best they can possibly do from all the reviews I've seen, is cool the same as stock just quieter.

Artic Cooling has only said that the Acceleros are designed for BTX cases, and don't live up to their full potential on ATX cases. Either way, theres a good chance your stock cooling will cool your X1800 XT better.

59C idle is too hot even for an X1000 IMO, what was your stock coolers idle temp? What are your load temps with the 2 different coolers?

I didn't test the stock temperature.. I just built this computer, and I replaced the X2 cooler while I was building it.

I will have to buy the cooling paste for the graphic card to redo/compare.
