View Full Version : GPU Temp

11-19-2005, 03:36 PM
Hi, I recently bought a new comp, and its been running stably for the last week or so (still is), but one of my parts came with something called "nTune," and after opening it up, it said my GPU is running at around 50-60C... My system and CPU temps are around 30-35. I checked inside, all my fans are working properly, including the one on the card (blowing onto the card I think). Agian, I havnt had any problems with this machine, and have gotten no warning messages, I have no idea where this thing is reading the temps from, so is this something I need to worry about, or am I getting a bad reading.

Mine's 51c, but I have pretty good airflow in my case. You probably don't need to worry about it.

I'd only worry if you are getting artifacts on screen or if your system crashes.

that temp is about the normal operating temp for a 6800 with stock cooling, although the ambient air temp has a lot of bearing on this as does case airflow. We are currently experiencing air temps around 30 degrees celcius and my gpu is running at 55 degrees celcius, CPU is at 33 degrees.
