running hot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well I have an XFX 5850. My question is if its running too hot or not. I play FFXIV on it and star craft 2. Before new years it would run at about 60c at 99% load. now it currently is running at 69-70c at 99% gpu usage. I'm curious to know if thats too hot and what could have caused the jump in temp, that seems to be a big jump. Thanks for any help and input.

That is nowhere near the limit. Graphics cards are built to withstand temperatures around 90-100c with no problem.

If you are using heating in your house, there's a good chance that your ambient temperatures have risen. That may have caused the temperature rise.

Dust can also cause a temperature rise. It's a good idea to dust your card with compressed air from time to time.
