His card is idling at 51c which aint to bad for a room around 90f. Still like I said nothing is wrong with the card, its his room temps that need to be fixed.

@nagle3092

Up for you. Even you have a better system than someone else. You were trying to help the guy and not show off.

+Rep

New around here but I found it easy to get use to it.

Just note that was at 4am here when i took that shot, not during the day, summer here at the moment. Last night was approx 73f in this room.

Smoke: Im 90% sure GPU Temp 2 is Memory, as thats what it usually is, and was with my 5850.

Got lucky today, fairly cool 22c ambient in here. Fan @ 50% kept temps in check while running GTA4:EFLC, mem didnt manage to break 85c, and hung out just under 80c.
Core settled at ~65c. All good right now, but again, cool day.
Not exactly quiet tho @50%. Might be a solved problem for me however, not getting the crazy temps with metro now. Im thinking the thermal pads need a bit of time to properly reseat if sink is taken off, along with a good fan curve?

Thanks for the replies. Dont wanna hijack the thread tho.

I'm not sure why everyone is so concerned with idle temps... they can be all over the place and nothing to worry about. It's the load temps that matter.

Mine idles quite hot at 58C in a 70F(21C) room. However, it's silent as can be with the fan at 24%... but under load it's fine - tops out at 75C @ 33% fan.

Also note that on top of dual monitors, the memory won't clock down if you are running a single display at high refresh rate (100+hz).

I see you're running your 6870 at 970/ 1100, may I ask if that is where you hit the OC wall?

I can't seem to get over 975 stable with 1.2v.

Perhaps we have the same problem?

Tried up to 1.25v and 55% fans. Need I add more volts and fans for 25mhz?

Just tried again. This time I tried for 1000mhz/ 1125mhz/ 1.25v 55% fans thinking that maybe the memory clock was too high when I was trying 1150.

But nope. Still got a few pixel mismatches in GPUtool about 4 minutes in.

I'll admit I'm being lazy on the overclocking. I basically only play competitive UT2004 and UT3, both which require way less GPU power than I have...

I got that overclock in about 15 seconds and it ran fine in Furmark. I haven't hit a wall or even bothered trying to go higher (yet). I also haven't even looked at the voltage.


Just checked. Stock appears to be 1.172V
