Good or bad?? Trying to figure out what's causing my games to freeze up to a solid color screen every now and then. Probably overheating. I ran burn in for about 5 minutes, then canceled it and ran the benchmark test. Usually at idle I'm at 30C. Gaming, SWTOR at the moment tends to hover in the mid 40Cs range.
Did that the other day, no errors. I usually let the PC run 24/7 and the other night it was making some weird noises. Almost like a bad PSU fan, but I turned the PC off and waited 5 minutes before powering it back on. I hit the inside of the case 1 more time with some air, and some small chunks of dust came out. Hopefully that's the culprit.
Well if you listed all of your parts, we could possibly point out any possible weak points for you. Currently it looks like you have some dirty parts that need cleaning, but there can be other factors that we might be able to point out for you. It would also help us if you just recently had this problem or has this been going on for a while?
96C on a 5850 is extremely high. Especially at stock clocks.
I have 2, at 870/1200, and they barely reach 70C.
I wouldn't be surprised if you're overheating, especially on the VRAM/VRM. Use GPUZ to see those temps.
I only ever got the solid color lock up from OCing, but I forget which values caused it.
OP: Try running the test at full screen regular burn levels 2xMSAA. Don't do the benchmark, just run it for at least 5 minutes or until the temp is leveled. I also suggest you use either CCC or MSI AFterburner to set the fan much higher, and make sure you have good case airflow. 96C is really hot.
Yeah 83C is waaaay too high for idle/start temperature. It would be nice to know if this is true or not. Maybe he does have a cooling issue here or his configuration is so bad that he can't cool the components correctly.
