HD 6870 Load Temperatures


Recently got a XFX Radeon HD 6870 and after a few minutes of Furmark, I received a temperature of 85C and it fluctuated in the mid 80's. Is this high or normal load temperatures? Thoughts?

  1. this is normal load temperatures for running Furmark, which will stress your card like it's never been stressed before. I would expect game load temperatures to be around 70-75C, which is fine. anything under 80C for normal load is good temperatures. benchmarks always stress them a bit harder
  2. Thanks for the reply. Was just wondering cause it seemed rather high =P.


    Any suggestions for a fan profile for MSI Afterburner?

  3. I generally like to have the fans hit 100% at 80C. because as I said before, 80C is kind of the saftey limit for everyday use.

    otherwise I would adjust it balancing temperature and noise you can withstand. if you're ok with 60% fan speed and that keeps your card at 65C when you game, great! if your card goes to 75C at 60% and you can't stand to hear the fans at 80%, then well, there's nothing wrong with 75C :)

    so yeah, I generally keep it fairly flat and have it go up pretty quickly between 65-80C
