GPU Temperature.. What is good?
  1 / 3    
What is an average GPU temperature to have... mine are running around 55-52 degrees not overclocked.... is this good... bad... ugly??...

temps are increased when using SLI. temps given were SLI temperatures


on a full load.. GPU goes up to max 65-69 degrees... ah???

What are the good temps for cards that are not SLI, I have a LeadTek 6600GT PICe, it's idle temp is btw 32-35 C, on load i gues it is rising to 45 C. Ambiant temp is about 30 C. Are these temp are above the avg for a graphic card???

I am running mid 50''s at idle and mid to high 60 degree C at full load. It is said that if you reach 90 C or highter to start worrying.

I am also OCing my GPU to 575/1150 with a heat pump system and artic silver 5.

NVIDIA GPUs are rated for operating temperatures past 120°C. Your 55°C is chilly.

Yeah all those temps seem nice for me i like to see my temps never go over 70 degrees and 55 idle is nice!

With the same card i'm getting 36-38 idle and 50C on load (probably about 52C as it takes me about 5 seconds to check the temp in display settings)

assassin - try rivatuner''s temperature graph - it will let you see your true temps under load...

My GPU's are ready to be turned into a giant george forman grill :

GPU 1 idle : 70c
GPU 2 idle : 65c

Load Temps after 1 hour of doom 3:

GPU 1 : 110c
GPU 2 : 90c

So how hot is TOOOO HOTTT? do i need to start looking at external ater cooling? no room in my case for additional fans - suggestions?

I realize those figures are posted by NVIDIA but they are grossly overrated.
Anyone operating in the 100°C range is slowly cooking their memory and will eventually burn out their card.

[b]Stock cooling on a card should have it operating (under load in 3-D) in the 70° range, 80s are tolerable, 90s are hot, 100s - your card is on death row[/b]
Third-party cooling, if it is any good, should have your card working in the 40s and 50s, possibly low 60s under full load regardless of how long you use the card.

your cards are running too hot. Send them back for replacements, or find a way to third-party cool them. If not you be paying for new ones before too long.
You might try a card fan solution to blow air on at least one of the cards, but a Logisys cooler would work much better. What is your power supply rated at? Does it supply enough power to keep the fans on both cards running at full speed?

I have a geforce 8400GS and it is usually between 50-57 on idle the lowest is ever been was 45 and when gameing its 60-65 highest 67. i used speed fan to get an accurate reading so i just want to if thats normal

Hi! in mine's MSI the gpu it's almost burning... the fans make a lot of noise and the gpu can't drop out of 80ºC!!!! WTF?

Is it some kind of problem at the graphic cards or it's normal?
