Nvidia Geforce GTX 580M max temperature
Hello,

The title says it already,
i have a "Nvidia Geforce GTX 580M" and i want to know how high the GPU-temperature can be?

if i play "Battlefield 3" or games like this, the temperature gets up to 84°C (183.2°F) and i want to know if this is to high and can blow up my notebook.

Thanks in advance

Hello,

That's a nice card you got there (I have the same!), and after doing some research, the GTX 580M is based on the full gf114 card which has a max temperature of 99C. Ofc you should stay below this limit to be 100% safe.

For reference, I'm using a cooling pad and IC7 Diamond pasted on the CPU/GPU and when overclocked, I get a max temp of 90 degrees under full load (playing bf3 on 1920x1080p Ultra/High 50fps). When under full load it's usually around 85ish but sometime it peaks at around 90.

84C is safe.

[b][u]Thank you so much! :)[/u][/b]

I will buy the "Zalman ZM-NC3000U" Cooling-Pad next week to save my notebook 100%
(10°C - 15°C difference)
(50°F - 59°F difference)

Or do you know a better Cooling-Pad for 15.6" Notebook ?
Thank you so much! :)

NP :)

It kind of depends on your budget and if weight/noise is an issue. Your choice is not bad, but I assume you're a gamer because you got the 580M, so I might as well tell you now that I doubt you're going to get a 10C-15C difference. More like 5-9C.

If you don't mind noise/weight there are far better choices IMO.

Money doesn't matter.
My Notebook have to be cool /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' /> That's essential.
(Because i want to use my Notebook as "Desktop-Computer-Replacement"
so i don't want to use some 0-8-15 ****)

but it would be nice if it isn't more than 150 Euro(212 US-Dollar)
(i'm from germany so my currency is Euro, sry /smile2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':))' /> )

But if you could give me some "Cooling-Pad-Names", that would be nice, so i can look for it in germany.

Thanks in advance

edit*
Noise is secondary, but it shouldn't make me deaf...
It would be nice if it is quiet :)

Then I would recommend the CM STORM SF-19 USB 3.0 Laptop Cooler (Since you're using your laptop as a desktop replacement just like me).

It has dual 120-140mm fans which are able to cool your laptop at a whopping MAX 2600RPM (adjustable) (note that if you don't have noise cancelling headset, this might be somewhat loud. For reference, I use a QPAD 1338 headset and I can't hear anything, not even my phone ring unless it's next to me).

Pro's:

- Monster cooler, will definitively cool your system by at least 8C (one of the best after market gaming laptop coolers).
- USB 3.0 Hub (It has 4 USB 3.0 ports, and extra usb ports is always nice to have.
- It has 7 changeable led lights that also "pulses" should you want it to.

Con's:

- Somewhat heavy for a laptop cooler (2kg), although it has a carrying handle.
- If you don't have noise cancelling headset, you might hear the fans if you're going at 2600RPM
- It's made to for laptops up to 19", so yours is on the smaller size (I use a Clevo P170HM and I think it fits just right for me).
- Connected via AC Power (Maybe not a con because you're using your laptop as a desktop replacement but still worth noting).

http://www.cmstorm.com/en/products/accessories/sf19usb3/

Worth noting is that it has a 1 year warranty, and if you want to upgrade to a larger screen laptop later you're "size" safe with this one as well :)

EDIT: Will cost you approx. 65€

Thank you for your reply, again :)

But after some test reports i think the "CM STORM SF-19" is too loud for me,
because i preferential play my games over 5.1 speakers - i have a 7.1 headset, but don't like headsets. -

The rest is great at the "CM STORM SF-19" and i like the LED-Effects :D
although it would be cooler if the cooling pad changes the colors automatically, but it's okay :)


I think that a Cooling-Pad would be quieter if it has only one fan, but also i think it isn't better than two fans...


So my Question:
Do you know a Cooling-Pad that is effective like "CM STORM SF-19" but quieter?

Also my notebook has the air supply below the notebook,
this means that not every cooling pads is suitable.
(i discerned this from tests)


Thanks in advance

Sorry, but there is not other laptop pad which can have the same performance as the CM Storm. There are some other quieter ones but remember, you can adjust the fan speed.

Hmm, i don't buy a Cooling-Pad that i have to put to the lowest level.
And the CM Storm Colling-Pad at level one has a low effectivity (~5°C).

I'll give it a try, but if it is too loud i buy another Cooling-Pad.

I thank you for your replys and competent answers :)

The temp isn't too high, although my AW M18x temp oscillates around 72-74*C. Start from changing the thermal compound on your GPU (so the paste). IC Diamond should give you 5-6*C less already, and in your case 78*C wouldn't be bad at all.

Alienware users usually have lower temperature because of a superior interior layout and fans. Sager/Clevo users will usually be around 82-88C under full load. As I mention earlier, the 580M is based on the GF114 card, which can handle temperatures up to 105C.
