Bad Temperatures and stability?

post #1 of 10

Is this stable? I'm usually running my computer 80% of the day and that's the temperatures with low load. Sometimes my case gets really really hot, and I'm worried I might damage them if I continue.

Both my fans are running at auto. also, is it safe to run the speed at 100%? I just tried it and it sounds like ****ing hell man.

You really can't tell stability from Afterburner.
Have you run OCCT or ATITool to check for stablity?

Those temps are for your 480's in SLI, correct?

If so, those temps aren't really all that bad.
What temps do you get with 100% load; if any game can max that out. =P
(Or you can run a benchmark to check)

That's like a stress test right? I'm scared of those.

Yes. That's the only way to know if your GPU is stable or not. You could also use Kombuster that comes with Afterburner if you choose to install it. It's another stress testing application.

Can something bad happen? Like it going too hot and frying it?

If it's already unstable couldn't a serious test destroy it?

If it's unstable, you will see artifacting. If it's a really bad OC. Then you will see some crashing. At that point you just turn it off and lower your OC. Also, monitor the temps and make sure they don't get too hot. If it does, you can always turn the program off.

It's fine.

Constantly monitor your temperatures, and as long as you're not getting random lag induced by thermal throttling, I'd say you're fine.
