Theres no way that going from auto to 60 fan speed that your temps still reached 80C. Did you click apply at the bottom of MSI AB?

Yes I have, and I heard the fan noise get louder and spin faster as soon as I did it.

It reached 80C without a problem, in less than 2 minutes.

Is the room that your computer is in warm or hot?

The intent of furmark is to see how hot the card can get. Regular video games cannot even approach 75% of the load furmark creates.

Also, you want to set up a custom fan profile in afterburner, set it so that 1C increase= 1% increase on the fan. This will stabilize your temps.

There are numerous variables on temperature. Yes, people will get lower temps, my 570 won't pass 65C in Furmark when my air conditioning is off, but by turning on the AC, I can drop load temps by 3-5C. Bigger cases with better airflow can drop temps another 5C, good cable management will get you another 1-3C, a rotated case like the raven line can drop your temps 5C over a good airflow case, ect.

Long as you're staying below 90C load, you're really not hurting the card. 72C for a gaming load is perfectly fine for overclocking.

That may be the problem... like I said before... Furmark stresses you card more than any other game would. Play some games and check your temps.

Just played a BC2 round, 57C

Although my GPU usage is not at 100% as it should be. my CPU is OC'd to 3.7ghz

See? 57C is pretty good. OC that card some more if you want, just watch the temps. Good luck.

What Apocalypse said. Cards are different, cases are different, ambients are different ... having your card be 12C different from another sample is not at all unusual. If it was 20C I'd think that was outside the normal range of variability, but not 12C.

I don't get concerned about temps til my cards are over 90C, and don't freak out until they hit 95C.

You might consider a TIM change (or even a lapping), luckily there's only 4 screws involved w/getting a TFII cooler off the card. And personally when I apply TIM I always err on the side of 'too much' vs. 'too little', as some of TFII coolers have a pretty significant surface irregularities.

Just thought I'd add: if you use v-sync ... it tends to really help with temps.

(And I dunno how people can stand the tearing you get when not using it ... but that's another subject)

Yeah, I do get severe ghosting / horizontal grey lines flickering while gaming. Ive ruled out it being a hardware failure, as it happened to me when I had GTX 460 and Phenom II X2 555, now GTX 560 Ti and Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.7ghz

Also tried different ram and PSU. Monitor tried at friends house and he didnt get anything, just here. Suspecting my cable adapted might be wonky. But yeah.

The temps are good, then

Was wondering, where can I compare my graphics card performance to others with same model except 3dmark11 ?
