6950 and 6970 temps - Page 5

post #41 of 49
My 6950 is 28C idle with all my case fans on minimum speed and gpu fan at 20%, and after a few hours of playing Battlefield 3 on ultra settings for everything on 100% fan speed on case and gpu fans it reads 51C-52C. Hope this helps. smile.gif

I'm using AMD Vision Engine Control centre to monitor temps and set fan speeds.
850Mhz GPU Clock (OC from 800Mhz), Memory clock is 1300Mhz(5200Mhz effective) (OC from 1250Mhz(5000Mhz effective)).
I'm using the stock coolstream fansinc with 2 92mm fans.

Resurrecting my thread, eh? As it turns out, I eventually did switch to liquid cooling for the 6970, and am still using it as such. It was hitting around 41C max, even when overclocked, allowing me to hit 1 Ghz core, and 1.5 Ghz RAM speeds with stock volts. Once the drivers were updated the card also idled properly, even with two monitors (my current config). Really have enjoyed the card under water, and wouldn't have it any other way.

Current temp (via Trixx) is 33C @ idle, with VRM measuring 29.6C. Just a simple CPU/GPU loop, with 3 radiators (push/pull shrouded fans) and twin D5B pumps in series.

I wish i had your setup, i'm still using stock but i have a Corsair H100 on my cpu.
I've recently unlocked the shaders on my card to 6970, and i want to get my overclock above what Catalyst allows (950[core]/1350[memory]).
Any tips or programs that you can suggest? i'm using msi afterburner, but with unofficial overclocking enabled the levels are shown as 0 when i apply.

I use Sapphire Trixx, which works very well for me. Provided you have a reference card, then you shouldn't have a problem overclocking it. I didn't have much luck with Afterburner.

And, as things turned out, it was time to clean out the loop, and try a different plumbing config. An O-ring died (my fault) on the CPU block, so I'm waiting to see what happens with a slight radiator change, and about 3 ft. less tubing. I'll find out this weekend, but the card has really been rock solid ever since being under water.

I'll try that, thanks. unfortunately i can't afford a custom loop. and i can't afford to buy a new mb and gpu if i screw up and it leaks on them.
I'm about to get a pair of coolermaster xtraflow's and put them on my side panel for my gpu cooler. i should be able to knock off 10C or so.
a friend of mine managed to drop his gpu load temperature from 80C to 67C by putting fans next to it on the side panel.

Keep in mind the old rule that for every 10C (18F) drop in temps, lifespan also doubles (supposedly). I can only imagine how long my card will last running around 40C.

i heard that a while back. it was used for advertising a card that had some advanced cooler. but i'm sure that's true for all pc components (except hard drives). my board temp is in the low 30's Celsius, my cpu idles around 15C and reaches about 35C (never reaches 40), and my gpu idles around 30C and while playing games it sits in the 50's (battlefeild 3 get's up to 60C @ 40fps). but if i get 2 xtraflows (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6684) i'm sure to have it idling on 20C and loaded at 40C (50C on battlefeild 3). Excess airflow can also contribute to cooling the gpu pcb on the back and get sucked out by my H100.

Mine can run anywhere between 72 C and 82 C depending on the game max temps ever seen were 92. Using MSI AB xfx 6970 no overclock single gpu in a HAF 932.
