Closed ATI 6870 Temps Tags: Radeon GPUs Sapphire ATI Graphics Last response: November 3, 2010 8:04 PM in Graphics & Displays Share sptmaster November 3, 2010 7:45:47 PM Hi, I got a Sapphire 6870 earlier this week. Runs great, idle temps are really good, however when i play bad company 2 (1600x900) @ 8xMSAA and max settings, my GPU temp hits 78c (never broke 80 over extensive playing). Is 78c a safe load temp? I was under the impression that modern gpu's can run a lot hotter than cpus, and 70-80 is safe. Is this correct? More about : ati 6870 temps Best solution axipher November 3, 2010 8:00:16 PM Share That is perfectly safe, I'm getting idle temps of 45-55 depending on room temperature, and 75-85 load temps, again depending on room temperature. sptmaster November 3, 2010 8:04:07 PM Best answer selected by sptmaster.
