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.
