Hello, i have a Dell XPS 8100 (desktop). And i have monitored the Temps using CPUID while i was playing Battlefield 3. and the Temp of my HD 5770 card did reach up to 92 degrees is this normal?
When idle ii was about 40-50.
And i still have my PC under warranty. So do you guys think i should do something??

My Dell XPS 8100 is 2 years old and have the following specs:
Intel i5 650 (3,20 ghz)
ATI Hd 5770 (1204mb)
6gb ram
and windows 7


-Thanks guys :p

i wouldnt panic about it, graphics cards can get into the 90 100 c range and actually run fine at that. however ur using a laptop so with a laptop that might be fine. for a desktop gpu, i wouldnt want mine getting over 70c. is your fan at the side of ur laptop working? try to see if you can configure the fan speed higher while gaming it might cool it down more. still a toss up tho if that temp is safe, best off calling dell and asking

my mistake, whenever i see xps i always am thinking laptop. you really should get some better cooling then. a new case, or some added fans, if your gpu has a fan on it check if its still working open the side of the case.

blow out the dust, if it's the reference card like mine idle 47-50*C is normal, and i never see above 72*C under full load, also note my card is OC'd to 960MHz clock and 1300 memory

No, 90C is not normal and will burn your card in no time.

What can you do with a warranty if nothing's wrong with it?

I would refund the Dell and build a system- if you can.

blow out the dust
get a program that will control the fanspeeds, i use trixx for my saphire card. run a custom fan scheme. the default ones are brutal and do run the cards hot

My old Nvidia GTX 460 had a max temperature of around 100 c. I happened to have a faulty card, so it consistently went up to 95 degrees before the computer decided to reboot itself.

I'd say get a second cooler on top of the one you have and/or get a better case with more fans. This helped me, and my desktop (now with a GTX560ti) runs Crysis 2 on ultra mode and the card is constantly at 50-65 degrees while playing.

LoB

P.S. Also you'd want to make sure with a professional whether the card is not broken. I'd get it replaced anyhow, since it's been in the danger zone a couple times.

LOL. dude u need to build a custom pc and put it together yourself. you wont have to worry about voiding any warranties unless u dump your parts in water. this is the reason people custom build them, theres certain parts ull want in it and stores cant offer it
