GTX 580 almost melted!! - Page 6

post #51 of 55
Freaking out about 90C? That's within safe temps for the 580... I had two 8800GTXs running at 115C for 3 years, and they still work to this day.

The cards were probably much hotter than 90C during the actual gameplay... and thats why you crashed. If they were 90C after restarting the computer, they were probably 130C or so during gameplay.

IMO get rid of ur physx card , waste of space .. u already have physx on ur 580 anyway.

its an easy choice really , melt my 580 or keep my physx card ?
You are very misinformed about GPU safe temps. 80C causing perm damage?

The card isn't going to start taking damage until about 105C, and even then it would take months (in some cases, years) before it will die out. Around 120C, the temp most of the parts on GPUs are rated at, is where you will physically damage the card (burn marks, warping, etc). Almost any GPU will run at 90C for years, with zero issues.

I am almost certain that adding the GTX260 as Physx card will help a GTX580 when gaming with Physx effects. See the graph below for a general overall reference.

One suggestion: use Mafia II Demo Benchmark and see how a GTX260 behaves with a GTX580 main card.

And, post your result in this thread:

Wow! lol... How did you know I was using the Mafia II Benchmark test.

Anyway I did 3 tests. One with the GTX260 PhysX, GTX580 PhysX and CPU PhysX.

Results (Avg. FPS):

GTX 580 36.1
GTX 260 43.5
CPU 12.7

The dedicated PhysX card does help.

But how many games out there, especially ones that you play avidly, use PhysX? Not many.

Also... I'm pretty sure that the GTX 580 will fit in the bottom slot. The Palit GTX 260 is poorly designed. They should have extended the "main connector" like the GTX 580 so the motherboard cables have a bit more room.

But I don't want to put the GTX 580 in the X8 PCI-e slot with fear that it will decrease performance.
