my ASUS fan is kinda not that noisy at 100%.....something you can live with seeing the huge performance gain my OC gave........anyway if the temps are fine i will continue with the OC

I may Just add 8 gb (4x2) Corsair XMS3 1600MHz cl9 2moro-- dirt cheap prices right now ! Advice?
no matter how much you overclock your going to be bottlenecked unless your going with an i7.

Its not your cpu its your monitor at low res your video card is capable of more fps but it forces your cpu to work harder to get it.

If your still on a 900p mointor imo that should be your next upgrade.

@Skyline385 those temps are high for anything less than a bench or stress testing not saying its going to damage your card but for what your doing it sounds a little hot.
Have you tried changing your TIM?
Do you get these temps in other games metro 2033 is going to stress the hell out of your card depending on settings?
If its only metro with all eye candy on then it might be ok but if you get these temps normal gaming there is a problem.
Also case ventilation is very important with these cards as they just dump hardware killing heat back inside.

@smoke420

i get those temps in metro 2033, just cause 2 and few other games with lots of eye candy else temps are in 70s........but you gotta know that at even at idle my card OCed at 920/1130 (1.162V) runs at 53-55 @ 40% fan speed coz of ambient temp being quite high (generally aroung 35-40)

Anyway stock 6850s without coolers reach 90 under full load so i am thinking maybe the temps are okay i guess..........but the most important thing i wanna know is its effect on the longevity of my card........any ideas ?

With your ambient that high these is only so much you can do with that said if you want your card to last lower the temps the better.I would suggest making a different profile for the games that are running hot if you want to keep overclocking because you are going to run into instability early due to high temps.

Ok. It's just that I have the exact same card on stock volts, 920/1150.

I live in England, where it is really cold, and my gaming core temp is 78C. So I think you are alright.

Why would you think that it is at 100% in CCC? Mine is on auto and never goes over 48% when gaming. (giving me the 77C temperature).

And finally, are you sure you can not just lower your Vcore a little bit and still be stable?


Edit:

If you are getting 81C on 100% fan then you have a problem.

I wanted to know the noise, to know if your software for controlling the fan is actually working. Our fan sounds like jet on 100%...

Yeah you can tell that the fan is at full speed.......hell you can even tell when its changing speeds so i doubt any probs with the fan.....like i told my ambient temp is high so 81 on 100% fan seems ok to me. Also,i decreased VCore to stock and will test it for stability
And about that CCC, MSI Afterburner allows me to keep fan profiles which cause the fan speed to change automatically according to the GPU temp. allowing me to set the fan to reach 100% above 70 deg.C whereas with CCC set to auto fan, speeds never reach 100% even if GPU temp goes past 90 deg.C so only option would be for me to set it permanently to 100% which i dont wanna do, simple.

@smoke420
i generally keep the card at default clocks only to increase them during gaming

ive run 3dmark 11 1030/1205 v1.356 both cards and got 77c top card and 84c bottom card(ambient was @22c).My idle temps stay mid to high 30's.

remember we are cooling with air and his is hot.
watercooling or even better air conditioning is your only help.lol
The worst part is ambient temps are killing his headroom these cards love to overclock.

I get about 81 even if i run 3DMark11 and also i live in a College hostel with a damned ceiling fan that doesnt help so you can guess the conditions of my room
And these cards are overclocking monsters.......got to agree with you on that

EDIT : Ran 3DMark11 @ 920/1130 at stock voltage and found it to be stable with max temp. about 76c.......now i am confused.......how can the card run stable at 920/1130 with stock voltage, cmon thats 130/130 higher than default speed

A Phenom II quad @ 3.8ghz is not going to bottleneck a single graphics card, especially a 6850. Not sure what tests you've run to come up with this theory.
