Just built a computer for the first time, wondering about temps
Aug 16, 2010, 1:45 AM
Since I am still new to all of this I didn't really know what the acceptable temps for gpus are. I see that my GTX460
runs at 40c idle, and jumps up to around 65c when I'm playing games for about an hour or so on high settings.
How high is too high for the temps?

65c is fine for 460.

The maximum temperature of a 460 is 104C according to NVidia.
Will this be good enough to run games on high settings

Theoretically the thermal limit for Fermis is 105 C IIRC.
Though for a GTX460, something like 75 is more appropriate.

thanks, as someone who doesn't generally work inside computers that seemed really hot but I guess I was just worrying about nothing.
