EVGA Nvidia GTX 460 Superclocked High Temps

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. i am using an nvidia gtx 460 superclocked edition graphics card. I have never had any problems before with this with any other games ever. But i just got crysis 2. everything is fine in singleplayer, then i jump into multiplayer, and after about 20 min i start getting ridiculous chop. I searched for fixes but it seems as if no one else is really experiencing this.

so i decided i would check my temps. my graphics card is reaching a wopping 88 degrees celcius after just 10 min of playing. however battlefield bad company 2 is getting into the mid 80s as well and no lag. i have read a lot that this card is supposed to never really go above 70c under load. i have even upped the fan speed to 55 percent and dusted out my pc and that made little to no difference. (there was very little dust to begin with) i am wondering if this is normal (which i am pretty sure it is not) or if i am doing something wrong or what. the thing is running at stock settings other than the fan speed and there is a 120 mm fan sitting right on top of it. my ambient temps are mid 60s farenheit

thanks guys

Is your card overclocked or overvolted?
Either way, I would recommend taking the cooler off and replacing the thermal paste, often there is too much applied at the factory.

everything is 100% stock. no overclock or overvolt. and im getting mid 80s average in crysis 2 and starcraft 2 with fan at 55%. do u think my card is defective?

i guess main thing i wana know is, is this safe? i mean i looked ran furmark and maxed out at 87c. wen i looked at other recent results for my card, almost no one was going over 80c and all of their cards were waaayyy overclocked.

well i just got off the phone with a rep from EVGA and he said that 87 degrees c is normal for my card (gtx 460 superclocked) which i found strange because everyone on newegg and everywhere else i have read says they never see above 80 degrees. so idk. can anyone else post their experiences with this card?
