58 degrees celsius on GeForce 6150 LE/nForce 430 Chipset?

Ok. So I have a GeForce 6150 LE/nForce 430 Chipset integrated graphics, with default clocks of 425 MHz Core and 532 MHz memory. I have overclocked them to 500 MHz core and kept the memory clock unchanged (532 MHz). After running many stress tests, this overclock seems stable. However, NVIDIA System Monitor shows that the nForce Temp is at 57-58 degrees C at maxmium stress (up from 54-55 C before overclocking). Is this temp still at the normal range, and will it fry my motherboard? I live in Canada so it is currently late Fall with room temperature at 11-15 degrees C. Oh, and I do some non-serious gaming (FS2004, Eurotruck Simulator) for around an hour a day or less, and since these are relatively old games, I seldomly have to stress my video card. Thanks!

And I have an HP Pavillion m7750n Media Center PC (Desktop) with a A8M2N-LA (NodusM3) motherboard.

It should cope with those temperatures but any additional cooling you throw at it would not hurt. Overclocking and higher temperatures can equate to shorter life for the affected component demonstrating nothing comes free. :-)

but is it still within the normal temp range?

yeah very very normal & safe for for your temp ... max. keep cool man! max temp overheating 80-128*C

Thanks! =) Do you think that I can add another 25MHz more without frying my motherboard, or should I just leave it at 500MHz (as it is an integrated card)?

yeah I Know... VGA onboard eat of (sharing) Memory RAM just 500MB, memory just set max 512 sharing it'is Maximal don't over, default clocks of 425 MHz can icrease to may be 500 or more it can give you more Score in 3Dmark06... check in CPU-Z

max mobo can take 128 but too Hot like VGA Addon, add fan put on Northbrige it can help drop temperature mobo & open the casing don't close

So can I do 525 MHz?

So I overclocked it now to 525 MHz core, and it was stable after running 31 minutes of FurMark Stability Test with Extreme Burning Mode. NVIDIA System Monitor reported that the nForce Temp at peak was 58-59 C (up 1 degree from 500MHz core overclock), and idle temps are around 45-47 C. Once again, will these new temps risk frying my motherboard/Integrated graphics chip, or are they good? 525 MHz core is the max I plan to go because my memory clock is 532 MHz. Thanks!

My Integrated graphics card is: GeForce 6150 LE/nForce 430 Chipset (default core clock of 425 MHz overclocked to 525 MHz, and memory clock of 532 MHz), and I have a HP Pavillion m7750n Media Center PC(desktop), with stock air cooling and an A8M2N-LA (NodusM3) motherboard (for those new to this thread). =)

your temp 58-59 very very safe go for maximum safelly Limit over Temp CPU : max 60C Temp Mobo : 80~128 Temp Temp HDD: 50
remember.... don't Oc too extreme (damage no warranty) & if cannot boot or Blank, Take off Power Supply from mobo - Clear CMOS, boot, & all like factory default... OC Again! OC is Trial & Error... up up up up

The question is do you get enough of a performance difference to justify the,although slight,increase in power consumption and heat.Because I don't see what you want to achieve by overclocking a 6150 unless you just want to try your hand at overclocking for the first time.The temps are normal and not dangerous but if what you're chasing is extra performance you should really get a discrete gpu.Even an old 8500gt would be better than the intergrated ones.

Well, my PCMark 05 has gone up from 800 to 959, boot time faster by 20 seconds and I can play FS2004 max settings without blurries or stutter. Before, fs2004 could go on max settings, but the high-def scenery that i'm using would take a while to render (by the time that section crisped up, I was already above it lol). So I'm pretty happy with overclock =) Thanks guys for reply!

And also, since it is an integrated card using System RAM, would my RAM speed of 533 MHz (DDR2-533) limit the amount that my GPU core clock can go over? (Since the memory clock of GPU is the same as RAM, would going over 533 MHz on core clock of GPU do any difference? Like would I able to overclock my GPU core clock from 533 MHz to 700MHz [theoretically, I'm saying] and see a difference than if I kept it at 533 MHz since the memory clock of GPU is still at 533MHz?

Sorry if it is a repost, but no one seems to be able to give me a yes/no answer =(

The core should go as high as it's engineering allows it to.That depends on the the specific chip.You would definitely see a difference although your gpu being low-end will not really speed up amazingly.

so the memory clock would not bottleneck it?

What do you suggest then? Should I go higher? I've overclocked the core clock from 425 MHz to 525 Mhz, and kept the memory clock at 532 MHz (as you cant overclock memory clock on integrated graphics card without overclocking RAM and I don't want to do that.) Temps are around 46-47 C idle and 59-60 C during extreme stress tests (none of the games I play would likely stretch my card this much).

And also, is it worth the risk the high temps to try to overclock it more, because as you said, you cant really squeeze much out of an integrated chip (like from 500MHz to 525 MHz, I merely got a PCMark05 graphics rating boost from 951 to 958. And how high of temps can my motherboard stand at max stress: A8M2N-LA (NodusM3)?

And in case you're wondering how this integrated video card overclocking has affected by CPU and chassis temps, here is a screenshot of SpeedFan about 10 minutes into the Prime95 CPU Stress Test:

Well you could try and up it a little more but the gains would be minimal(1 fps in games).I would try to keep the temps below or at 60c.About the cpu,although I'm not sure,I think it uses motherboard sensors to calculate your cpu temp,so you should check the temperature with coretemp or realtemp about it.Anyway if you want to, overclock to the limits,then start backing down to a point where you are comfortable with the temps,performance and noise by your cooling.

KK I'll keep it at 525 MHz.

Something wonderful happened. I realized that my computer was probably so hot because I was propping it against a corner (no breathing room in the back or intake side). So I moved it away and gave the back around a foot of breathing room and the side as well, so now idle temps are at 43-44C :)

OK. Seeing as how people are able to overclock geforce 8400gs core clock from 450 MHz to 600-620 MHz (a 150 MHz increase), I am tempted to push my Geforce 6150Le core clock from 525 MHz to 550MHz (memory clock staying at 532 MHz). Temps are now 44-47 C idle (cause I moved PC away from corner) and 60-61 C Max stress (using Video Card Stability Test for 40 minutes). Is it worth it? Or should I stop now? Remember that it is an integerated card on a HP Pavillion m7750n Media Center PC (Desktop) with a A8M2N-LA (NodusM3) motherboard and stock cooling with default core clock of 425 MHz (meaning that I've already overclocked 100 MHz.)

Lol it's so tempting to drag that core clock slider up in EVGA Percision, but I cant afford to lose my motherboard :)

As long as you don't up the volts and your temps stay below 65-70c you can up it all you want.From a point and forward though it's meaningless to go further.So go to 550mhz,even 600 if the temps and your intergrated gpu allows but it would be much better if you got any discrete gpu.
