I have the sapphire 7950 running stock with no overclock (I don't want to test my luck) and I'm wondering what range my GPU temp should be when I'm gaming (fry cry 3 witcher 2 metro 2033 etc.) it doesn't get above 60c and I font run the games on max settings either.

Thank you in advance :D

mid 60's upto 70's shouldnt hurt the card even if it stayed at those temps for long gaming sessions...

I have the MSI 7950 TF3 cards OC'd even and it runs in the mid 60's in games, mid 70s on stress tests like Furmark. Idle in windows its usually in the upper 40's to low 50's. My ambient is usually right around 22-24.

Idle temps aren't important, as the resolution of your screen can impact what temps you get. I used to get 55 degrees idle with a 1440p monitor, but under load I get just under 70.

Which 7950 do you have? There are multiple versions, the best one being the 950 mhz version with the 7970 PCB, which is a beast overclocker (It has a brown/black PCB)

You can safely go up to about 90 degrees celcius, GPU's can work up to 105 degrees celcius but doing so can and most likely will deteriorate components in your graphics card.

It's the sapphire 7950, and thank you, I never hit above 62 but I really haven't "put the pedal to the medal" on it, I just didn't want my stock temps to be too high haha.

My first MSI 7950 TFIII ran at 70-80 degrees with 80-100% fan speed. My new one never breaks 60 degrees with 50% fan speed.
