I have a EVGA GTX680 (reference card and at stock clocks).
I run two monitors
1) Dell U2711 2560x1440
2) LG 24inch 1920x1080 (Soon to be U2410)
I play D3 on the U2711 and the 2nd monitor is for 2D applications (Web, GPU-Z, RealTemps, etc etc).
Wondeing if anyone can shed some light on my Temps from GPU-Z
Temp Idel is 55C
Temp While gaming is 77C
GPU usage is about 50-53%
CPU usage never goes past 5-10% (at least when im looking at it)
Are the tempertures ok? I feel that the Idel Temps are too high, but it could just be me. I have contacted EVGA and they said its normal. Just want confirmation from you guys.
If this is normal, what are tell-tell signs when I should be worried?
Are there any reference sites for this? I can't seem to find any.
If 77c is under 50% load alraedy, what would if we assume that the GPU load is under 100%?
What is the safe max temputure?
To avoid flickering on the 2nd monitor, they will not idle as low as normal. You can expect about a 15C increase in temperatures as a result.
A 680 will normally run about 80C under full load, but you are safe up to 100C. (I would not let it go beyond 85C, regardless). If it gets near that range, you can adjust the fan profile and get the temps lower or fix air flow issues.
