Card Running Hot, Fan Maxed

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
My XFX 8800GT is running hot. When not running any program and just sitting at the desktop the GPU temp according to GPU-Z is 56C. The fan is running what sounds like is maxxed out.

I also noticed the clocks are higher then they should be. The clocks should be the default 600MHz core, 900MHz mem and 1500MHz shader. The memory is running at 900 but the core is 602 and the shader is 1512.

What could be causing this?? Please help!

Its not hot. My 8800gtx idles@75c, and games 90c. Its six years old. You dont have to worry until you start seeing 98c.

Fermi cant take kind of heat of for long. You have no worries.

Don't worry about the clocks there mate, that's how nvidia cards work

For idling that is a little high, so maybe take the card out and give it a good cleaning to get the dust out. Find some way to get compressed air (even your own lungs can do it!) and blow out all the dust.

But as DrFPS said, you only need to worry when your card starts hitting ~100 degrees. Graphics cards are hot beasts, but they are designed to take the heat.

Those temps are fine. My old 9400GT stayed 87C when playing Cod4 with the fan unplugged because it was annoying. If it hits 98C+ then you need to get worried.

Maybe there is something wrong with the temp sensor? I don't know. But my fan runs at a constant high speed. Abnormally high. I know 8800GTs have loud fans, but this is not normal.

Speedfan (as you can see in the pic) shows the GPU as running hot. I know 52C isn't hot, but it's seems like the card thinks it is and is therefore running the fan at max to try and cool it off.

Is this possible?



Also take a look at my HWMonitor display for the card. It says the voltage is 0.00V. Is that normal?

Down load msi afterburner and see if you can control it. If that doesnt work I know rivatuner will.
I dont trust speedfan. Never have.

HW monitor shows it @30%. Thats about where it belongs. It wont show voltage as it lacks pwm voltage control.

1st step: Insure fan is spinning
2nd step: Blow out the heatsink, might have dust clogging the fins.

Take a can of compressed air and spray out your GPU heatsink to make sure it isn't filled with dust. I wouldn't suggest blowing out the dust with your breathe, the dust tends to fly into your mouth, nose, eyes(if they aren't closed), and likes to hover around the surrounding area for a while before it settles. Make sure you blow/spray out the dust outside.

Used the compressed air. I made sure it was completely clean.

I tell you this one has me stumped. I thought today it might be related to the GPU booster option in my bios. So I disabled that and still no luck. It's like the card it getting too much juice or something. It must be a setting in my bios cause the card worked fine in other computers.

hey bro i owned a 8800GT A-dawg too!
the A-dawg was always a tad OC'd. mine had the same clock speeds too. and whats so bad about higher clocks? THATS WHAT OVERCLOCKING IS ALL ABOUT! be happy!

56C idle is fine! no problem with that. what are your MAX temps? run furmark and see what your temps are.

all 8800GTs DO NOT HAVE VOLTAGE CONTROL. so maybe thats why you cant monitor your voltage. btw download RIVATUNER and check its voltage monitor. its much more accurate than HWmon IMO.
your fan says its at 30%. thats normal. 8800GTs were loud anyway.
btw, do you have the 8800GT with the small heatsink or the full card covering heatsink?
my BFG 8800GT had the full cover and XFX had the small one. the BFG one was much louder than the small one.

have you updated drivers recently?
what driver version are you using? sometimes if drivers are not installed properly the fan will spinn up 100% all the time.

so far, your card seems perfectly fine. my alpha dog idled in the 60s so you are fine.
