I think he probably means beyond what something like AB will offer.
The pic was taken while card was stressed with Furmark. So that's higher load / temp than any game can getOriginally Posted by Cyph3r;14177082
Yeah I'd worry if they went past 110c, they're definitely fine up to 100c though.
And check the temps under load
The stock fermi coolers actually do a pretty good job of cooling the VRM and memory due to that huge huge plate thing that covers pretty much the entire front of the card.
Thanks for your information, Cyph3rOriginally Posted by Cyph3r;14176973
Or you could just use the sensor tab in GPU-Z and look at the temp for "GPU2" which is the VRM.
GPU1 = GPU Core
GPU2 = VRM
PCB = PCB
Unwinder @ Evga forum says the vrms need an external sensor to provide temp monitoring on the 480:Originally Posted by clerick;14177857
Pretty sure the gtx470/480 does not have VRM temps sensors enabled. They were laser cut according to w1zzard.
