  1. 100c would be very hot, 60c is nothing to worry about.
  2. sire mousemonkey may i know the chart temperature of all video cards? do i have to change my psu to cooldown my video card? may i know how to cooldown it?
  3. There is nothing abnormal in those temperatures. Why would you think there is ?
    This model could run in to the 70's.
    Enjoy your card.
  4. im just really scared coz i have touch the heatsink of gigabyte chipset it so hot? is my card the cause?
  5. No, chipsets run hot. Try sticking your tongue on an OC'd 680i chipest! :lol:
  6. thank you for the reply notty just really scared coz im noob at video cards.... and ive experience a hot card =( is all the card idle temp is 36c? could i reduce it to add some fan to my video card?
  7. I advise you never to 'touch' the exhaust manifolds of your auto engine.
    Those are also very hot, and there is usually nothing wrong, lol
    Your video card can consume about 100 watts of power in operation.
    The side effect of that is the creation of heat energy.
    A light bulb's function is to generate light, yet if you touch a 100 watt bulb, you will burn your finger.
  8. hahahaha!! sorry sir just only now touch the chipset and experience =) how hot it is hahahaha now i know... =)
  9. thank you sir i taught my whole rig will burn coz of this hotty =) uhmm can i have a link regarding temperatures of all video cards ati and nvidia?
  10. Now can I have a million dollars ?
    You have to remember, you put the coolest running video card in a tight small micro atx case with minimal clearance under the video card and poor wiring managment and that cool running card can run up near 100c at times.
  11. thank you very much notty... may i ask again can i up speed the vga fan coz it only speed upto 1560rpm + !!
