Max safe temp for GTS 450 Reference Card - Page 2

post #11 of 14
According to NVidia, the max temp of the card is 100 c.

As long as your cooling alows it to stay under 90 c on full load (like Furmark), it can be OC'd as high as 925/1850/1000. That can be easily achievable on dual slot models just like yours. The cooler seems good enough, but i can also see that the VRMs don't have any kind of cooling. I'd advise to get a heatsink on them, since they tend to get damn hot. I need some heatsinks on my GTS 450's since they're only single slots, so the cooling sucks even more.

I Overclocked the GTS450 to 1009/2280/4501 and it is stable and never goes higher than 51*C.

The thermal threshold on the GTS 450 is 95C. Anything under 90C should be acceptable, really. Of course I like to keep it as cool as possible though.

*Note* According to the link above nVidia has changed their listed thermal threshold since I wrote my GTS 450 review tongue.gif
