Old 7300 GS running at 70 C idle 100 C load

Lawl ok.

I've just found out my GPU is running at 70 C idle + 100 C load, which is pretty frightening haha !

The gpu has a fan but no program can detect or control the fan which is gay, my CPU temp is like 40 idle 55 load with a small overclock.

I've had this GPU for at least 6 years. I'll give it its first wash of its life tomorrow.

Does anyone know how dangerous these temps are, and any programs that *could* possibly control the GPU fan ?

P.S I already have speedfan, ATI tool + riva + also core temp lol

  1. 6 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LAWL, I hope, you are joking, because AFAIK, geforce 7 series cards did not come into play before 2005, 2006?

    And yeah see if it gets cool after cleaning.... That might be a problem..... If not, jump the ship and travel to the near future 2009 and give yourself a treat named Geforce 200 series or ATI 4xxx series.....
  2. Well maybe 5 lol !

    Ordering phenom II 955 BE this week + a nice 4890 so my friends won't ever see me again....

    7300 GS worst card ever I got scammed as a child.

    New build + a nice HD lcd comes tomorrow :D !

    ive had a last minute change, the shop doesnt have a sapphire, but they gave me a palit hd4650 512mb ddr2. god it gets good fps, and its at a low temp, try that one out kronik2k! its great, hd out and crossfire ready and it has a huge fan with a heatsink around it! and has an auto or manual fan AND it automatically adjusts the core and memory speeds but keeps it at a low temp. its great value for money!
