Sapphire Toxic 5970 idle at 52 degree ??

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I dont' know what happen to my Toxic 5970 these days ?
The temp seems to be really high and it idles at 52 degree as of now and when it's full load it went up to shocking 91 degree !!

Anyone have any idea what's happening to my card and what kind of solution can the OCN'er suggest to me

I'm currently using CCC 11.2 and everything seems to be good in terms of game performance except for the temp.


Thanks ~~

Re-seat the heatsink with fresh thermal paste.

The thermal paste idea sounds like a reasonable one,but I would change a few things.
It looks like the arflow to the card comes from the lower front of the case...correct?
I'm seeing an unused cage ass'y there as well as some water and power feeds.
Are they blocking airflow?

Thanks for the input guys

But I tried re-seat the cooler twice, add new MX-4 Thermal paste, I even changed the thermal pad to this.

My temp only drop 1-2 c

Yes, i'm a CFX user going 5970 + 5870 setup but my 2 cards have about an inch space between them so I don't think the lower card is blocking the air flow for the upper card.

I'm so worry guys, is my card dying ?

Does that card use the accelero cooler?

it's worth trying to RMA.

Check the cooler for dust build up.

It could also be your ambient air temps.
post #9 of 22
Try it without the 5870, its not alot of work and legitamtely takes care of one potential problem better than "oh its got an inch"

also, gpu's use intake fans, then exaust out of the back. you have air being taken in the front/side of your case and exauste out of the back/top?

is it breathing in its own warm air from the exaust? ie a desk that directs airflow back around the computer?

does it have a psu with its exaust on the carpet?

what has changed, i mean if it happened without any change recently, send it back in.

but before that id look at system temp and cpu temp to see if there is fundamental airflow issues?

Maybe post up a pic or two of the inside of your case and where you have your case sitting at so that we can get a better idea?

Can you post up a few ss of GPU-Z for us to look at.

One more thing....have you installed IE9?
