Hi guys,
I got Asus gtx 470 and been wondering whats an acceptable temperature that the card would be fine... If i leave it at "Auto-Fan" the temperature when playing games such as Left 4 Dead 2 reach max at about 80*C-82*C around there...so just wondering is that still an acceptable temperature that won't damage my graphic card if I play game in that degree for a long time.???

I know the gtx 470 design to run hot but how hot is an acceptable range to not damage the card when playing game for a long time..?

No need to worry, the GTX 470 can handle the heat, 82°C is fine. You should only get worried once it reaches around 95°C.

Is it fine if I game for long ass time somewhere at around 80*C-92*C?..It won't decay my card life-line..?

Then you can just manually adjust the fan speed a little bit higher, personally i don't like temps above 80'C (I know the card can handle above 100'C). Agree with Lmeow, do not let your card reach 95'C... :)

The card can handle ~100C temps, so your fine in the 80s and low 90s.

The card's limit is 105°C

My EVGA GTX 470 runs idle at 65°C on auto fan inside an air-cooled HAF-922 case.

I just booted up BF Bad Company 2 and let the auto fan run the show.

It was at 99% load (using the fancy 32x antialiasing) and temps were hovering at 86°C with 60 auto fan speed.

I don't have a problem with that. Heat will always shorten the life of electronics, but the question is will it ever die while you are still using it, and I say no to that. Most of my extra computers have GPUs in them with fans that died long ago, and they don't mind.

This card is always going to run hot due to each drawing almost 200 watts. The maximum temperature of 105 C is something I would NEVER advise allowing for any extended period. Personally I seldom hit 80 C even when the cards are under stress. I STRONGLY advise dedicating a monitored chassis fan positioned to pull the heat from these cards away from the MB and hopefully out of the chassis. I good rule of thumb is for coninuous operation try to never exceed 75% of an maximums.

Regards and have FUN!
