Default Nvidia 6800 Gs At 75 C Non Idle

Im just wondering, i know how gfx cards are able to withstand at a higher temperature then a cpu, but at 75 c? It is equivalent to 167 F, is this average for the temp i get when i game? Or is it OVERHEATED? Thanks for reading GURUS ^^

its fine, a gpu has a threshold of 80*C. You might want to get some better airflow though.

I didn't think those cards ran that hot, but it isn't that serious.

it doesnt make a big difference because you are disrupting the flow of air.

Yeah you would think all that fresh air would do it some good, but when i take my side panel off the thermomerter on the front of the case just rises like 10 degress weird...

I wouldn't take the the side panel off. All that is going to do is create standing air. Air flow is what's important when dispersing heat so it is always better to have a closed system with good fans to circulate air.

I don't think you need to worry about changing the threshold, it's not going to get much higher than 75*C.

75 Celsius is within temp threshold of the GPU, but it's pretty high for just idling. I'm wondering what your fan config is within your PC case? Have you ever thought about putting an exhaust blower to the case? I'm talking about the one that fits underneath the video card and sits where an exisitng PCI slot is. It blows out the warmer air out.

Yeah thats a nice fan and it even comes with a nice little speed controller to bad that has to be mounted in the back...That would get on my nerves everytime you would want to change it you have to reach back there. I would prooy change it every time a play and game so it would get annoying for me..But yeah thats a preety nice fan
