Im not sure my what my gpu's temperature should be around. I just saw today it went up to 65c (well it was a hot day). I had desktop on for about 15 hours. My GPU is a XFX Double D 7850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... I thought the 2 fans would pretty much keep it around 40-50c but for in case i dont want to damage my GPU. Could someone please tell me what is the c for my gpu to overheat

It for sure isn't overheating if it doesn't get over 80°C, which is a fair safe limit for pretty much any GPU.

65 degrees is perfectly safe and certainly within operating temperature, no need to worry about damage. Damaging temps are 95-100 degrees +

Can you download and run HWInfo and get voltage readings - 12v, 5v and 3.3v min and max?

What fans speeds were running? What game were you playing?

It shouldn't go over 90C. I'd try to keep it to below 80C on Kombustor
Have you overclocked it - what settings?

Well, what were you doing when the temp was at 65? At idle your temp should be somewhere around 35-40c depending on the ambient temps and under load, like in a game, around 70ish. 80's are not unheard of in a warm environment. The gpu can hand even 90 degrees, but I wouldn't recommend it for extended periods of time. You want to keep your max under load no higher than around 70c to maximize the lifespan of your GPU. If your 65c was under load, then you are doing just fine. If that was your idle temp, meaning you had nothing going on and it's that hot, you have some issues.

65 is well within the range. You really should not be worried. Give us a call if your temps crossed 90. Below that you are safe.

If it reached 65C under load then that is perfectly normal. Personally, I wouldn't let a GPU get over 75C. Although they are rated for higher. Once temp gets high so does the fan speed and noise. So, monitor temps and you're all good.

On no load?

From his post, he would have been doing something with some sort of load given.

No where in his post does he describe the state of his system other than that it was powered on for 15 hours.

that is a good point, though from what his assumptions are (40-50 degrees), and the temps he is getting, it sounds quite reasonable. For 15 hours of use, with the OP worrying of the card being damaged at that temp, it would appear to be everything is quite normal, though he hasn't listed what he was doing., Which in this case and all cases, it does help.

I was playing minecraft and i found it weird how temps went so high up in a such simple game. I also have a FX 6300 as my CPU and im not sure how fan speeds were they were automatic on the how the load was.
