i just changed fan 50% to fan 100% all the time in rivatuner cause my idle temps was 65 degrés celsius for core and 52 degré celsius for ambiant..is it too high for this graphic card ? i didnt do any game yet, i just installed my computer, new one. stock heatsink, i didnt put any termal past on it...now i have 100% fan cycle on, temp core is 55 degré celsius and 43 ambiant, do you think its too high ? im afraid that will go way more up while playing a videogame any idea ?
Thats what my 6800 GS AGP idles and games at, not a problem for my card, but it is now officially (2 generations) old and outdated
BTW, one of my friends has an ATI Radeon X1900 XT and it goes as high as 90 degrees Celcius (and his case has great airflow), and his card has never hiccuped or slowed down once. I guess some cards just take the heat very easily. :wink:
