I'm pretty sure it's fine. These aren't CPUs.

i agree, i think i read somewhere that they can go up to 104c

my Palit reaches 80c on load

I dont see how... nvidia says max of 105C... 70C seems like a normal load temp for me.

Im running cyclones that would hit 80C+ from the factory, after some mx-4 TIM and a little 1600grit love with the heatsinks I got it down to 69-73C at load w/ OCCT/f@H....My idle temps are like 38-44C

I dont see how in the heck people have cards that run sub 20C idle and only 50-60 at load... thats insane.

I can only get my cards to around 880mhz or so core at 1.087... I run 1.075v and 875mhz.

For the price I paid for them, (~280 for both) I really dont mind if they burn up, as long as I get 6 months out of them. Heck of alot cheaper than paying ~500-550 for a pair of 560s or 470s which would only net me 10-15% increase in performance... i dont even play games that max out my cards.

Before overclocking run something like this make a record of your results then overclock then run again to see what your overclock has improved

I like my 460 to run cool, right now its idle @ 18c. Hearing what you said about yours hitting 80c on full load thats mad! I suppose its just the immense cooling Asus really has rolleyes.gif

Do you live in a refrigerator ? 18C barely makes sense aircooled... I can't imagine less than like 25C even undervolted.. I mean honestly, my wood desk is probably hotter than 18C if i put a IR thermometer on it.

Most cards seems to run mid 30s and load in the 60s. Factor in the fact that im running 3 GPUs in a mid tower and its makes sense.

I have owned several directCU cards (ATI only) from asus and the cooling was good, but nothing spectacular. They are decent aftermarket coolers...but dont really compare to sticking a monster chunk of aluminum from arctic cooling on a card... IMO MSI twinfrozr coolers are a bit better though.

I think I would rather idle at 30(which I do) then freeze my ass off. Do you turn your heat off to get low idles?

70 is fine for a GTX460. If you want it lower adjust fan settings.

As the other poster said, what are your ambient temps? If they're higher than 18C, you have a broken sensor.

I's not broken i have my fan settings very strict to keeping it idle below 30c, Im in the very cold room of the house no radiators in here. Just sit in thick clothes. Its pretty lucky actually i'd rather be sat in here than in a warm room playing games and benching smile.gif

Like i said, mine only idles at 18c because of my room temp, but when its warm in here in the summer its idling at about 28-35c.

If you're concerned about temps.. don't be, unless it's loading around the high 80's. My Zotac model has terrible cooling (worse among gtx460s) and idles around 40C and loads around 84C overclocked. Heck, my old 8600GT idled at ~66C and went around 100C load and it still works 2 years later. smile.gif
As for your overclock, I wish you luck in your endeavors. Even if you can't get 900 stable you most likely have a better card than mine. I can't even get 860MHz stable at 1.087v! mad.gif
