What's the best test to run in OC Scanner to determine GPU's load temps?

There are many tests in OC Scanner. Which one should I run to determine my GPUs max load temperature? If OC Scanner is not good enough, what do you recommend?

I ran the tests at 1920x1080, 8XMSAA.

Of those I tried, the one that gave the most strain was the FurryE (1024MB) test. After sufficiently warming up my GPU, it could hit 66 to 67C. Leaving it to continue running after the benchmark for around 10 minutes now (99% GPU load, 100% video memory load) at the max clock speed, it reached 69C. Fan speed reached 55%.

Is this a good enough test to determine my highest possible load temps?

In a gaming environment, I tried unlocking the FPS of a few games, and the GPU went up to 65-66C.

With framerate locked, it is around the low to mid 50C (but I haven't played/tested any 3D games from late 2013 or 2014).

With the above test, is 69C OK or what (and the corresponding 55% fan speed)?

Some other factors that might be relevant:
1) The card is factory clocked 20% higher than the reference.
2) I live in Malaysia, very hot and humid. Test was conducted in the evening where ambient temp was easily 35C (easily 37C perhaps even).
3) PC is in the living room. Marble floor might contribute to more heat retention.
4) PC has stock Dell cooling.
5) Idle daytime temp is 40/41C, 40% fan.

try furmark and heaven benchmark in addition with gpuz or msi afterberner for monitoring. what is your specs?

How many times do I run to check my load temps?

you can define the stress test time on furmark and on heaven you can leave it looping, for several times. generally those temps under load are good for any gpu. dont worry. the idle temps are also good.

I tried Heaven. The test environment is as follows (basically Extreme settings, just Tessellation reduced one notch to Normal):

1920x1080
Normal Tessellation
8XAA
Ultra quality

Played once, then immediately looped 3 times. So total 4 runs.

By the first loop, temps stabalized to 66C. Continued till the end, but at the end it varied between 65 and 66C.

GPU load was often 99% but the MCU was 50% on average.

Guess that's considered OK, as you mentioned? What do you get?

mid 60s for the gpu except furmark that climbs to 70s. For any gpu hardware as I said these temps you state considered as good.you are ok
