Normal temps for EVGA GTX 260

hi, when i play left for dead 2 with maxed out settings my card seems to get a bit hot. The graphics card has stock cooling and never has been overclocked. I'm thinking of overclocking but if these temps are not good for the card I don't think i will be doing it.

Fan speed @ 40% - 74 C
Fan speed @ 75% - 64 C
Fan speed @ 100% - 55 C
Room temp @ 29 C
and idle temp is: Fan speed @ 45% - 49 C

My case is a thermaltake armor+

By the way i live in Australia and it can get hot in my room.

Thanks

  1. Which card is it?

    Those temps are fine for a graphic card.
    i see almost same temps.

    While gaming keep it at 100% and rest let it be at 45%.
    Don't worry about it. :)

    Your temps are fine, even at 40% fan speed. I wouldn't worry until it reaches 90C. Graphics cards can run hot.

    L4D2 heats my card up to, gets it to 36C with 0% fan speed :lol:
  3. Thanks, also do you think i should overclock it and if so what to? my graphics card is a EVGA GTX 260. I'm thinking overclocking it to the factory superclocked edition of the card so it won't blow up... any other good stable setups?
  4. Every card is different so we can't say overclock to xxxMhz Core and xxxxMhz Shader, because it might not be stable for your card.

    Personaly I overclock as much as my card will let me, but making sure the temps are fine and that its stable.

    I run the Crysis benchmark x 20 to test for stability and max temps ( Run GPU-Z in the background and log temps)

    If you don't have Crysis, then you could use Furmark to test for stability and max temps which you can get here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Benchmarks/FurMark.shtml

    And GPU-Z to monitor temps: http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/1781/TechPowerUp_GPU-Z_v0.4.0.html

    I take it you already have EVGA precision?

    yeah i have precision, so would it be ok if it was overclocked to the factory superclocked card. it seems fine because their virtually the same cards in theory. I won't go anymore than the superclocked, just so i can be the same as my friend :lol: . I'll download furmark until i get crysis of my brother...
  6. Yeah just put in the factory overclocked values and test for stability and temps. Good luck. : )
  7. My GTX260's (SLI rig) have gone up to 85C in Crysis. As long as you stay under 90C there's nothing to worry about.
