Default Nvidia 7300GT 256MB

My father just put this card into his computer, and it kept crashing from overheating temperatures (100C+). We added some airflow into his computer around the video card to bring the temps down. I ran a Benchmark test and it passed at 100% stable. The highest temp after adding airflow was 70C, with the video card throttling at 100%, and idles at 56C. I think these temps are good, but just want to make sure? Thank you.

Thumbs up Re: Nvidia 7300GT 256MB

Perfect!!! At full use of the GPU, 70 degrees Celsius is a nice round temp to hit.

Default Re: Nvidia 7300GT 256MB

The reason why I say that is because a lot of the people I know here have similar video card to what you have and they also run more or less the same GPU temps you're running. The 100 degrees celsius tolerance is high on these video cards so you're well within the safe zone.
