Hi everyone .
i recently checked my system temp using system information software ! i was quite shocked to see that my gpu temperature jumped to 106 degree with just 1 hour of gameplay . what is the recommended temperature for gpu. i use 8600gt graphic card nvidia .
am pretty impressed it didn't crash at that temp!!!
it might be worth taking the card out and checking its cooling hasn't become clogged with dust.
had that happen with my old X1800XL single slot cooler - had become unreliable.
turned out to have become very blocked, was a pain to disemble too with all screws under its sticker (used a stanley blade to cut small X's for the screws I could peel back and gain access)
That or maybe you could see about improving case flow some if it isn't so good.
I would guess, depending on your cooler??, you wouldn't want to be too much over 80 with 90 as max. Am sure someone can give a better idea of what is normal for this card.
i am using 178.13_geforce_winxp_32bit_english_whql drivers currently . the prob people were facing was their gpu fan isuue. but in my case i dont care because there is no cooling fan attached to my gpu.
and i tried installing 196.25 old nvidia drivers but.. it didnt get installed properly i was asked to restrart my machine after physx was installed . after restart setup didnt continue. but i didnt mind because i know 8600gt is old gpu in market.
i am gonna change my cabinet this week. Before there was not enough prob but now even climate in my country showed up. before it used to be around max 23 celsius max . but this summer it reached upto 36 degree cessius now.
you know when people are boiling how can computer escape such a heat .
