GPU Temps and Tower Fans

Q: GPU Temps and Tower Fans

Hey there,

I've been playing crysis 3 a lot lately and it usually run's my GPU temp around 65-70 degree's ( MSI GeForce GTX 770 4GB TWIN FROZR ) I know the card is suppose to run up to 80 degree's no problem but I was just wondering if I played at these higher temps for 3-5 hours at a time. Would that be to much stress in terms of heat on the GPU ??
I have the Corsair 230T Windowed-BLUE ATX Mid Tower Case> I have just the stock fans in it and I was looking to add more. I was just wondering if people have preference over tower fans ? if so what are some good ones and why ?

im going to update my stock case fans with a couple Vantec torndoes. the only issue i am afraid of is actually causing a vacuum within the case as to where the air can actually be sucked back through my power unit causing it to over heat.... is this possible?

it is happening, per the new PC case layouts were seeing with the PSU on the floor of the case sucking straight from the outside & venting it back out the rear..

but the old case design has worked perfectly for years with the PSU at the top, thats why a 140mm fan was added to newer PSUs to help remove hot air from the case

but its not really an issue, your PSU will never die from the extra heat of your components...

it is on the other hand possible to create a ''dead spot'' where the PSU fan cannot extract due to chassis fan configs, but each case is different so its something you would have to test.

move your chassis fans to different locations each time holding your hand by the PSU exhaust, see if the flow changes at all. (i doubt it will)

i always try to put a ''positive'' pressure inside the case (more intake than exhaust), so air cant be sucked in through cracks & drive bays, thus lowering dust coverage

but a PSU can get very hot so i wouldnt worry too much....

Just got my laptop days ago and the first day it seemed to work just fine though the fans would turn on once in awhile and are very loud nbsp But now they seem to be on more often than not while just doing simple things like typing Fans 17 80-90+ temps R3 on always Alienware this message Alienware 17 R3 Fans always on temps 80-90+ in a web browser nbsp Even now temps are C then jumping to C and up to C when I open a new tab and close it using ctl t ctl w I am using Intel XTU Extreme Tuning Utility to monitor it and see that Thermal Throttling is happening fairly often and my CPU Utilization is staying pretty low generally below sometimes peaking to like when I open close a new tab nbsp Just repeatedly opening closing a new tab - times got all cores peaking Alienware 17 R3 Fans always on temps 80-90+ above C which kicks the fans into overdrive A review I saw on youtube showed the fans are silent while idle and the reviewer claims the fans rarely turn on unless you go into the BIOS and enable fan performance mode nbsp Is there something wrong with this unit causing the temp to be so high

Hello all,

I'm seeking advice on how to best orient the fans in my tower. I currently have one pulling in the front and another in the back pushing out. The one in the back is fairly noisy and I just bought two new fans to replace it with.

I have a fairly large tower but it is in a confined space, which is making me question whether I should be pulling in the front or the back. There is about a 4" gap between the tower and the left edge of the desk, and maybe a couple inches on the other non-ventilated side, as well as about 3" of clearance between the top of the tower and the desk. I have attached an image of what I have in mind. Does anybody have feedback or advice?

Hey guys I have a few questions. I want to improve temps in my case but everything i seem to do makes it worse. I routed all of my cables into the right side panel of the case and i added some more exhaust fans and a cpu fan. This has caused my temps to rise. I use realtemp to monitor my temps and it is consistent and accurate. I will include pictures of my case so you can understand my airflow

Blue is cold air intake and red is exhaust, the blue circle is a side panel fan.
Temps are under a small load and ambient case temp is 27c

EDIT: The max temps you see were under prime95

A:Improving airflow? More fans=higher temps

How long did Prime95 run before the Max temps were reached? Are those the "stable" prime95 temps?

Reason I ask is I am going through the same exercise as you. And with an almost identical case/fan arrangement. I do not have SLI video cards. Just a sing MSI TF III GTX 570.

If the max temps you displayed are SUSTAINED temps, i.e. Prime95 running for a long period with the temps you listed, I don't believe they are excessive. You have not hit the dreaded 70C. Also Prime95 is meant to stress a system. It is not a "real world" usage statistic IMO.

You don't list your GPU temps. You might want to check out CPUID HWMonitor which will give you more of the monitored temps and fan speeds.

As for me I am trying to keep temps UNDER LOAD (gaming) at CPUs <= 60C and Video Card <= 65C.

Biggest problem I have is keeping noise level reasonable under gaming load. I have installed the Sunbeam PL-RL-6 allowing me to switch all fans from PWM to Manual to OFF in an effort to test the noise/cooling benefit of each fan.

Just ordered a TY-140 fan to replace the top exhaust 120mm. Hope it helps with noise/cooling.

For some interesting test results on cooling see The Big Air Cooling Investigation |

The jist is to stream the air flow over the hardware and THROUGH the case. Too many fan or too strong a fan in the wrong place will cause turbulence but not necessarily cooling.

ok, simple question, will opening the tower case to clean my computer's cooling fans violate the warranty? or am I better off trying to arrainge servicing for my system for this specific purpose?I tried calling support to ask, but the agent didnt quite follow and seemed to think I was saying I had a fan failure, when all I wanted to know was if opening the case to clean it myself would void the I decided to post here in the hopes that an hp employee versed in the terms and conditions of the limited manufacturer's warranty wouldnt take pity on this poor uneducated soul.

A:will opening the tower case to clean the cooling fans void m...

Greetings, This action will not void your warranty unless you cause damage. Shut the system down, disconnect AC power and disconnect all  peripheral devices. Move the system to an area where you can remove the side panel. Clean the sytem using compressed air and allow time for any moisture caused from using compressed air to dissipate. I periodically do this on all my HP desktops and it is wise to do this. I am not an HP employee. There is no official HP presence in this Forum. Cheers!

I just replaced the stock CPU in my Precision T3500, going from an e5520 to an x5660.  Both CPUs will heat up beyond their TCase values, 72C and 81.3C respectively, when using the stock passive Dell copper heatsync.  Is there an active heatsync available for this system?  The OEM heatsinc setup uses female bolt downs instead of the standard male ones.
Also, I'm noticing a 5C difference between my coolest temp core and the next coolest temp core and an 8C spread between my coolest core and my hottest core.  Is this normal?
Thanks in advance,

A:Precision T3500, two Arctic F8 80mm case fans lowered temps from 81C to 70C

Hello Chris,
I received two Arctic F8 80mm case fans today along with a molex to 3-pin fan adapter.  The difference in thermal performance is profound.  I've attached four pictures, one of the fan box, one of the back of my case, one of the inside of my case, one of the molex adapter, and an updated thermal profile.
With the latest test, after installing the fans, the system seemed to stabilize round 70C.  Although, I only let the test and monitor run for about 15 minutes.
I hope this cooling method helps others.

hi, I am going to upgrade my graphic card to ATI 5770 so I need a new power supply which has power about 550--600 watt. But the most frustrating problem is that I failed to find a proper power supply with the correct dimension.
I have an HP pavilion e9300 which uses a very wired power supply tower-150mm(W) 86(H) 140(D). But so far all the PSUs I found is the standard size --150mm(W) 86(H) 150(D) which cannot fit in my setup.

So could any PC God give me some suggestion, please??
Is any PSU with the size of my tower or can I just simply install a bigger PSU which can still successfully power up the comptuer?

Thx in adance.

A:Power supply bigger than the tower - frustrated by HP PSU tower

If the power supply will physically fit your case, it should work fine with your computer. Will the extra 10mm interfere internally with anything inside the PC?

After installation of new motherboard and AC F64 Pro, BIOS shows 28C for the CPU. SpeedFan's "Core" shows 31C. However, it's "Processor" shows a WHOPPING 51C!!! Everest shows same 51/52C!

I'm sure it can't be that high. Are th "Core" and bios ones that are correct?

A:Temps Okay?

Probably a phantom reading, meaning that the sensor chip supports it but there is no sensor for it. Pretty sure that HWMonitor works the same as Speedfan in that it takes the readings directly from the sensor chip and not from the bios, which is why readings like that show up (and in Speedfan can be turned off).

Leave it open and run a game or some other system intensive program and then check the readings again. If it is a phantom reading and that 79? reading doesn't change, then you can ignore it.

i bought a new asus 7600gs 512mb fanless and its around 60 degrees C at idle and 80-90 after gaming is this too high? the nvidia temp monitor logs a green line up to 85 ish ,
my earlier 6600gt (when it was working) was only 80 max at load is this down to the fanless architecture or bad venting for a bigger card?

A:Gpu temps

1. video cards have a much higher heat tolorance than CPUs do. that temp is normal and safe.

2. software based temp monitors are not very accurate

3. due to the ATX standard, the video card's heatsink is on the underside of the card. this area of a standard ATX case gets very little airflow.

that being said, if you are still worried about the temps then you can:

1. replace the fan-less heatsink with a heatsink/fan... or

2. modify your case to get more airflow to that hotspot. if you have enough empty PCI slots under the video card, then you can remove 3 plates/covers and simply install a case fan there to exhaust the hot air or intake cool air. or you could drill/cut a hole in the side panel of your case and install a fan there as well.

hello, recently i've noticed my graphic cards temperature is getting slightly higher than usual. It's only about 2 months old (the card) i was just wondering if it's normal. As i've looked in several different places about what the allowed max temp is but i just find varied answers.

The most demanding thing i do at the moment on my PC is play the witcher 2 on ultra settings (with uber sampling on) when i first got the card it would average the temp at about 75c now it averages abou 80c. this is while playing the game average standard temp is about 30c.

what is the max temperature i should be allowing for this card? also what is the max for my CPU temp?

-Asus GTX560 DUII Top
-Intel i7 950 3.07ghz

ive got smart doctor to monitor this stuff i just want to know when i should start getting concerned.

Your temps being at 34c are very normal for idle and under load 41c,don't worry about it unless it starts going in the 50s or higher

Not sure if I could answer your question or not, mostly because I can't really understand your grammer. It looks like you are asking about temperature spikes in your motherboard that occur when you load certain games. I'm guessing your system is overclocked, but I'm still trying to decipher what your question is.
Relevancy 36.12%

This is not so much a thread about my cooling, as I know I am fine in that area, this is more a question about safe / comfortable operating temperatures.

The reason I say this is because right now, with it being summer, my room can get rather warm. While running games such as Bad Company 2, or any other graphically intensive game, I run just under 60, with the occasional spike to 62. Idling and doing basic tasks keep me at around 35-40.

While I know the 35-40 degree range is good, I am wondering if 60 is a reasonable operating temperature while under load, or if I should be stepping up my fan speeds.

I have a 2600k clocked at 4.4 GHz.

A:CPU Temps

I would keep an eye on it but the chip should hold into the 70+ range without damage. If you ever push 80 I would just shut it down or reduce the clock, then you're pushing it too far.
If 60 is as high as you are going the chip should be fine though.

Those temps are near to ideal temperatures. I'd say there is no need to worry at all. New PSU won't impact the temperatures, the components use the power they need, making a "too powerful" PSU half idle. The problem is somewhere else.

Room temp is currently 13 degrees

The temps as I type this are -

40 - Never changes

I am using coretemp to measure the temps but have tried a couple of other programs with the same results.

Any ideas to why one core is locked at 40 and one core is so low compared to the others?

Oh and CPU is not overclocked at all.

My EVGA GTX570 Superclocked GFX card has some serious temperature issues.

The Card idles at 36c and under load, playing games gets as hot as 97-105c, using 2 monitors the idle temp is 69-70c, while gaming still 97-105c(Crysis 2 1980*1050 all the bells n whistles on).

The card is less than 8 months old, clean as far as i can see. I have removed the card and cleaned away any dust build up with compresed air, can't remove the plastic shroud because i dont have the proper security screw heads. Its not my case/air flow as airflow is optimal. 2 120mm front fans pulling also 120mm side fan pushing, 240mm top fan pushing, 120mm back fan pushing. My question is if i reTim the card will this help and if so whats the best thermal paste to use? I have Actic Silver 5 compound will this be sufficent? Also where can i get the security screw heads?

A:GPU temps again!

If it is less than 8 months old and you are sure it isn't case airflow causing the problem I'd look at getting it replaced by the retailer or manufacturer. Which ever is applicable under card warranty. You'll probably find that messing around with it could invalidate a warranty and if the application of a new thermal compound doesn't help you then have something you can't send back as faulty. I'm not sure but I'd check what is used for the heatsink on a GPU. I have a feeling it might be a thermal epoxy rather than a paste. Someone with experience of changing cooling solutions on graphics card should be able to confirm/deny my feeling on this...

Looks like your using the stock AMD hsf which does a pretty good job; my Intel stock hsf isn't as effective in controlling my max temperature. Your 9500gt since it doesn't clock itself down on idle (ATI does) seem pretty good as well, I doubt the additional noise that would be produced when you turn up the fan would make as big a difference. BTW, Did you turn on AMD's Cool and Quiet for your processor as well as the C-states and such?

I'm using a freezone cpu cooler by coolit, had to reinstall it, put some new AS5 on the heatsink, my cpu temp is at 15C right now, I know AS5 usually takes a couple days to burn in and you could get up to a 5degree drop. Should I be worried right now. I know too cold is not good for cpu's either

A:cpu temps


Its true that too cold is not good for the CPU, but you probably won't acheive those temps without spending a really huge sum of money. And you definately won't reach those temps on anything thats easily available to the general consumer/enthusiast.

TEC coolers may not be that easily available, but it still does not reach those temps . I'm not an EE, but given that CPUs are overclocked for fun on LN2, and that the best overclocks are NOT on lowest possible temps (these guys claim that a few degrees over N2 boiling temp is best), I'd say I wouldn't worry about your 15C (which is a temp I'd love to run my comp at )

Believe it or not that's not completely insane for that gpu to be at full load.
You could probably reduce the max temp by adding additional fans/air flow to your computer case.

A:High temps with GTX 560 non Ti

That has to be a faulty card or the fan on the card is just not working how it should be if it's going to 100c but the idle temperatures are normal and actually cool.If you still have it under warranty I would go exchange it before the warranty runs out as soon as you can.The most that card should get to is maybe around 60-75c when under stress.The 100c mark is what would worry me and could be the fan on it is not working properly and is not cooling it off fast enough.I would worry when it starts passing the 75-80c mark.Make sure the fan on the card is working how it should be and that the card has enough space and ventilation to let your video card breathe enough cool air in and blow the hot air out your pc case.

So I download hwmonitor to check my temps and my cpu's are at a constant 84-90 degrees celcius... which is around 190 degrees farenheit... Is this too high? It is an amd turion x2 64bit processor at 2100 mhz. Is there a program I can use to turn my fan speed up? I'm on a laptop

A:CPU temps seem very high =/

1) 90 degrees is definitely very high for the processor. At those temps, the computer should be shutting down randomly to prevent cpu damage. But download a couple of other apps like coretemp and see what they show. A buggy sensor can give all kinds of wierd readings.

2) HP doesnt have a propreitary fan speed utility like some other OEMs. Also, their BIOS is dumbed down and there are hardly any customizable options. But HPs historically have had a heat problem because of poor case design and they sometimes release bios updates with modified fan algorithms. Check the HP website for a bios update and HP forums for this subject.

You can download Speedfan, if you're lucky it may detect the fans.

3) Otherwise, there are a few generic solutions I can suggest:

-make sure the laptop vents are not clogged. You can clean them out with a can of compressed air.
-Try using a chill pad (also called cooling pad). They come cheap and can be quite effective.
-Switch from High Performance power plan to balanced or power saver. You can change maximum and minimum processor states in advanced settings of power plans.
-Make sure your fans dont have a mechanical problem.
-Ultimately, one can change the thermal paste and clean out the laptop from the inside. That depends on how comfortable you are with opening the laptop case.
-Undervolting the cpu is another option, but you'll need to understand and research the process beforehand.

Hi TSG people. I read in a post here under hardware to check system and cpu temps in bios information, how do I do that and what would be considered normal and too hot for this machine?

I would like to start overclocking my athlon xp 2000+ t-bred and am wondering about acceptable temperatures. I am currently running between 42C and 44C idle with a mainboard temp of 30C. what temp would be considered to hot. I have 2 80mm fans on back of case along with psu fan and one side fan over my agp slot, using stock heatsink and fan that came with retail chip. also I am wondering how far I could reasonably push my fsb running crucial pc-2100 memory without burning up my dimms.

What should the average temp be for this? And when should I be worried? With the side panel off, and 1 case fan missing, the BIOS is reading it at 42-48 C or 110 F. Is this high, or will the extra case fan on the side cover help to cool much?

A:AMD 64 3000+ Temps?

110 F. really isn't bad at all. Mine runs at about 114-120 F. Putting the extra case fan on the side cover drawing air into the case should help cool it even More.
Make sure the other case fan is pulling the air out of the case.

Hey guys im new to techspot so i just need some advice from you experts, ive basically got a watercooling system which is a thermaltake bigwater 760i which work well no issues but the temps seem a bit high for water cooling i might be wrong but i just need your guys opinions on this. The cpu i got is a AMD X2 5200 so the idle temp i get when ALL pc fans are about running half speeds is 45C for the cpu and on the load is 49C-50C MAX. So i think these are a bit high but i dunno and also my pc is near a heater could this have alot of an effect?????

If you guys could give some advise it would be really helpful and also it would make me abit stress free hehe thanks.

A:Are TheSe TeMps Correct?????

the temps are acceptable but could be lower if you move the computer away from the heater of course

Hoping I can find out some info so I can judge if my system is running ok I am trying to find out what temp is "normal" on a P4 system am looking for case temps and CPU temps. I used AIDA32 to get them and mine have come up as 34C for the case and 45C for the CPU.

I have just installed water cooling on my PC, I wanted quietness with good cooling. Basically the question is are the temps I'm getting ok, the readings are with the fans at lowest revs, hence whisper quiet, I have cooled both the CPU and the two graphics cards.i.e Quad Core Extreme QX6850 and two 8800GTX's in SLI

CPU Idle max 40degC Load max 65
GPUs 52 66

your views would be appreciated, none of the above have been overclocked(yet!)

does these temperature look ok for my system during gaming?
Alienware Aurora-R3
Intel Core i5-2300 2.8GHz (6MB Cache) Overclocked to 3.3GHz
16GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1333MHz
MSI Radeon R9 290 4GB GDDR5, PCI-Express 3.0

A:temps at gaming

Yup, those are within acceptable levels under full load.
