NVIDIA card And AMD cpu temp...?

Hi guys,

I recently upgraded my GPU to MSI gtx 560 ti and its combine with AMD cpu... and i used to have
ASUS 5770 while playing games CPU temp never goes beyond 45c..However after installing nvidia
card temp goes above 60c... i am nt worried bec my CPU max temp limit 71c as per AMD website...
So just want to know if i switch to INTEL cpu my temp will be below 45c or not....?

I heard NVIDIA is best with INTEL and AMD best AMD....!

  1. Nvidia+AMD is as good as Nvidia with Intel, what you heard is wrong. You might want to look at your case cooling since the GTX560Ti puts out more heat and is therefore causing the temperature rise on the CPU.

    Hi rolli59,

    I dnt think my case is issue.. i have cooler master elite 430 with 3fans.. 1rear,1front and 1side and all 120mm so i think
    ventilation is quite good and i am actually not worried abt my GPU because temp stays below 70c on load @1000/1100.....
    my only worry is my AMD phenom ii x4 945@3.0Ghz temp goes upto 62c... but when i installed ASUS 5770 my old card.. though
    i Overclocked my phenom @3.4Ghz temp stays below 50c while gaming on load....

    I really have no idea why temp goes so high when i installed GTX 560 ti hawk....?


    Thanks...!

    ^ Yes. Not sure who started that trend years ago....

    It's something ventilation related. Never bothered really looking at fan positions of a 5770 or 560Ti. But I have a 480 overclocked @ 580 superclock clocks and a 1050T at 3.45ghz. The 1050T uses the same cooler as the 945, etc. which is known to be...rather...not so great. My 1050T never goes above 56C'ish.

    But you also said you own the Hawk (Msi factory overclocked card) which is going to kick more ambient heat into your system in general. And I'd imagine (not sure) that the 560Ti in general runs hotter than the 5770 (too lazy to look :lol: ).

    But you don't get a new CPU just because your current one suddenly runs hotter with a new configuration. You buy an aftermarket cooler ;) Your card temps. are perfectly fine, unless you are absolutely against heating up your room a bit more. As roli said, it's more than likely case related. You could spend the extra money if you want to swap out the fans for higher CFM 120mm fans, or buy a well-ventilated case.
