Max temp to allow EVGA GT 240 before cranking fan up?

Q: Max temp to allow EVGA GT 240 before cranking fan up?

Several mos ago replaced OEM GPU that ran hot w EVGA GT When hot weather got here I noticed GT seemed to run hotter than I think it should w normal browsing temp to EVGA before GT up? 240 Max fan cranking allow But also noticed fan speed really didn t increase much until temps were in high s - Max temp to allow EVGA GT 240 before cranking fan up? even then fan might run only - I can get GPU up past C just clicking back forth on some images - like Mozilla themes Yes the GPU fins fan are clean - took em outside amp blew out Can see down thru the fins w a flashlight to check Really wasn t dirty so made no diff under type of use described Installed MSI s Afterburner amp tried the quot User defined software automatic fan control quot - which controls the fan well SpeedFan didn t amp easy on resources Question - at what temp would you really crank up the fan to avoid ever getting above that temp Specs or manuals don t give this info Obviously the stock setup wasn t effective Right now have Afterburner set to at C C see graph This may not be running the fan high enough to keep it below C - still gets there opening a lot of pages Once fan kicks in temp drops fairly quickly amp running at that easily drops it below C or Should note - no other components get nearly as high so doesn t seem to be a problem w the case I know some report GPUs running F amp even higher but seems kinda high amp hard on components if happens very often Still have a lot of room to increase fan speed but don t want to be overly concerned if C isn t an issue I could raise it to or higher C if necessary This also makes me question effectiveness of the factory thermal paste as I ve read so many complain about That maybe I should think about redoing the paste Thanks nbsp

Hi Debbie,
GPU' s are designed to run warmer than CPU's so while cooler is better, 50-60c is nothing to get overly concerned with. increasing the airflow through your case to lower temps would be preferable to running the cards fan at 90% constantly if you can. The upper thermal limit for GPU's (AMD & Nvidia) is 105c. while thats to warm as far as I am concerned, If you can keep idle temps below 50c and load temps to 85c or less, the card will probably outlast your use for it.
Hope that helped

Hi Sorry for the long post but I wanted to provide as much info as possible for a better solution I have been experiencing strange clicking sounds please see link coming from my XFX HD lately or it can XFX PC noise, 4850 temp HD and clicking then High crashes be from PSU I have been using this card since years It XFX HD 4850 clicking noise, High temp and then PC crashes used to be very rare only at bootup but ever since I have started playing Bioshock infinite it has become much more frequent Initially I did not get any problems playing but last time I could only manage hr and then mins before pc crashed Today when I started the pc there was not any of that sound but XFX HD 4850 clicking noise, High temp and then PC crashes after minutes the hideous sound started and after few seconds pc shutdown This happened again and again with shorter time frames Interesting thing is I did not even played the game was only browsing the potential problem on the net Turns out it can either be -Some hindrance in fans spinning -Coil whine -PSU problem I couldn t pinpoint the exact problem I tried listening to it very closely could only guess that it was coming from gpu it also seemed very hot Using GPUz I started monitoring and gpu temp went from - C range to C within minutes before it shut down So it seems gpu is the reason I put a bit of load on gpu by emulating a game in pj during that time I had got my power outlets checked by a voltmeter few days ago the electrician said they were fine My desktop airflow is good never had a high temp problem with my cpu and side of the cover is always open My questions are -Can I underclock my gpu so that it consumes less power -Do I need to install ccc since I haven t earlier -I used an air blower a couple of months ago and also cleaned the gpu with a brush did nt find much dust or any object blocking the fans I can t rma since I had a bad time doing that in the last few times other h w long wait Also I don t have a built in gfx with this build What do you suggest Thanks Link screens and audio http s tinyupload com index php file id GPUZ min max temps Date GPU Core Clock MHz GPU Memory Clock MHz GPU Temperature C Fan Speed Fan Speed RPM RPM GPU Load GPU Temp DISPIO C GPU Temp MEMIO C GPU Temp SHADERCORE C Memory Usage Dedicated MB Memory Usage Dynamic MB VDDC V - - - - Update After I cleaned my pc again with air blower and also the gpu separately tested the system Starting temps were better from c instead of c and biggest difference was the dramatic reduction in fans rpm previously and now - rpm and noise But bad news is during those - mins the gpu temps kept rising again even at gpu load and once I put a bit of load on gpu - via pj emulater it rised to c before pc shutdown again So does it means I have to apply thermal paste too Or can this be fixed if I update the gpu driver Please any solutions suggestions wil be really appreciated nbsp

A:XFX HD 4850 clicking noise, High temp and then PC crashes

I'm having a bit of trouble following (more than likely my fault). What is the GPU fan speed during load?

If the RPM's seem normal, it could be thermal bond in the thermal paste that is broken.
If the fan speed doesn't appear to be normal, the fan itself could be broken.

I AM UPGRADING FROM A RADEON 5700 1G TO A
EVGA SuperClocked 03G-P4-2666-KR GeForce GTX 660 3GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP
is this a good enough step up to play battle field 4 at a high level?
low on cash but this card I found seems to have what I need plus maybe a few yrs in it before a upgrade is needed. any input would be appreciated.
reason I ask is I have a day to cancel and get something else but I am not real good with computers. I am running a phenom quad core with 4 gigs of ram on win 7 ultimate and a 600 watt power supply and 1t hard drive

OH AND MY MOTHERBOARD IS A GA-MA785GM-US2H
 

A:EVGA SuperClocked 03G-P4-2666-KR GeForce GTX 660 3GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP

This should answer your question. The GTX 660 has 30FPS with ultra quality at 1680x1050. Lowering the quality settings to high, raised the frame rate to nearly 50FPS.
http://www.techspot.com/review/734-battlefield-4-benchmarks/

Final Thought:




...
If you can live with high settings however, you'll boost your frame rates by around 60%, sometimes as much as 80%, which is enough to make the GTX 660 and HD 7850 practical options. ...
Fortunately, there's less to consider when choosing a processor -- just make sure you have a quad-core chip. It doesn't even have to be a new one, as even the Core i7-920 and Phenom II X4 980 took care of business. ...Click to expand...

Side note:




As was the case with Battlefield 3, as long as your processor has four cores/threads, it shouldn't have a problem in EA's latest shooter. The only processors to struggle were the dual-core AMD Phenom and Athlon CPUs, while the game can utilize up to eight threads if your chip has them on tap.Click to expand...

Another improvement would be to get 8GB memory. In my opinion 4GB is boarder-line to being sufficient.

PSU issue I think

heres what it is when I first installed this card (had a 500w antec psu) the comp was fine till I played diablo and poof shut off the comp via psu , so decide to get a thermaltake 2 600w and hook tht up now ot plays for a longer time
but does the same thing,I took the card back and got a new one of the same
same thing happens , so I decided to try a different approach and I have a psu I modded for xbox 360 tht is wired to stay on and I ran the card powered by tht and was able to play for hours and only 2 times it shut that psu off suggestions or now a psu tht doesnt get fooled so easy or what is really going on...lol thank you

 

A:PSU issue with evga gtx 660 superclocked

If you got a different video card and a different PSU, chances are there is something else wrong unless you got very unlucky and got another bad part from one of the two things swapped out.
My guess would be one of the following just from one you said:
The new PSU is bad as well
The CPU is overheating and shutting off
GPU could be overheating and shutting off (Though this is unlikely)
Those are just a few things to check, I would go into the bios and see what temp the CPU is running at while in there and decide if its running above what it should be. If that's not the issue I would try returning the PSU for a different one and see if that fixes the issue. Though the fact that the machine shuts off with 3 different PSU's points to a different part being an issue.

A:Is EVGA GTX 650 2 GB worth it?

Do you have a budget for how much you can spend on the Video Card itself? I would suggest shopping around because Amazon doesn't always have the best deals. Depending on where you are located, you could find some really sweet deals. Spending another $10 you can get an EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487024 ) or for the same price as GTX 650 you can get a PNY GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB ( http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8906822&CatId=7387 ). I'm not saying you have to buy either of those cards, just showing you that you have options. You could also go with an AMD video card if you wanted to. Let us know how much you can spend (on either just the Video Card or the whole system) and we can help you out.
Also, looking at the specs you included, it looks like you have a decent plan for the build. I would suggest getting 8GB of Ram, not just 4GB. If you want to game on it, then 8GB is pretty much the "safe zone" for gaming.

Hi, I plan on OCing my Sapphire HD7850, I know to never allow it go above 80 degrees celcius. What I'm wondering is should I allow it to get to 70 degrees or 75?

Will my card last a lot longer if I only let it reach 70 as opposed to 75? I'd like the card to last a couple of years more at least.

Thanks
 

A:HD 7850 max temp?

GPUs are generally quite resilient to high temperatures, 80C won't be a problem. My 7970 in a Crossfire sandwich gets above 90C on a hot day and it's been running merrily for about 18 months.

Voltage is also important and will kill the card if you up it too much.

I have had this card for a little over 2 years. Now I want to upgrade to something better because I not only game, but hook my computer up to my Sony HDTV for movies and such.
My system Specs:
Intel core i7 960 (3.85 GHz)
18GB RAM (corsair vengeance? forgot)
512GB SSD (OCZ vertex 4)
EVGA GTX 560 TI Superclocked (want to upgrade?)
650w PSU

I am looking at maybe a EVGA GTX 760 Superclocked or around that price range of $250. I do not want to SLI my 560 because I don't think my PSU can handle it and heat issues.

Any suggestions or advice? Thank you guys in advance you are the greatest!!!!!
 

A:Upgrading from EVGA GTX 560 TI Superclocked

The GTX 760 is a good choice. Other option in that price range would be a HD 7950.

Btw playing movies through a TV doesn't warrant an upgrade since it's not GPU intensive. You should see a nice performance bump when playing graphically demanding games though.

We need to know the specs of your computer. Download a program called 'speccy', and give us the details, along with your laptop model name.

But, that being said, 55c while in a game is excellent for a laptop.

I recently built a pc with a fx 6100 8gb ddr3 and a 7850 in a nzxt phantom 410. and I'm getting what I think are good temps my gpu reaches 50c in load, and the cpu says relatively cool but on speed fan it says the aes says it's like 90c. So what is this aes and do you think these temps are correct. I believe this could'nt be correct, because I have my fans at 100% and I would like to see what you guys think 2. Ill upload gpu-z cpu-z and speed fan diagnostics later today.

I noticed after I installed beta driver 310.70 that temps at idle were way up, about 41c, so I removed the card and cleaned the fan and heatsink with compressed air (it wasn't very dirty). Still high temps afterwards, started looking at settings, and noticed that the card was no longer idling down (staying at 981 MHz core and 2257 MHz memory all the time). That explains the high temps, but how do I fix this problem. I tried a completely clean install of the stable driver (306.97) per a guide on the proper way to update Nvidia drivers, but the problem remains. Checked all the BIOS settings, multiple monitor is disabled, etc. Checked all settings in Nvidia Control Panel. Any help will be much appreciated! BTW I am running Windows 8 Pro x64

I'm in the process of building a new computer to replace my aging Q6600 setup, and I decided to go with Asrock's new "OC Formula" Motherboard. This motherboard comes with some inbuilt profiles for overclocking, and I decided that 4.8 GHz sounded like an awesome number so I clicked on the profile, rebooted and from what I can tell it's working like a lovely dream.

What I want to know is, what sort of temps should I be getting? Because right now I am sitting on 72 degrees C after 30 minutes of Prime95 and from everything I've read the temps should be a lot higher.

according to the bundled AsRock software (OC Formula Drive)
VCORE = 1.343 V
BCLK/PCIE Freq = 100 MHz
CPU Ratio = x 48.0
GT Frequency = 350 MHz

Using Corsair's H100 Cooler with stock fans and thermal paste, and an i5 3570K.

Thanks in advance for any handy responses.
 

A:3570k @ 4.8 GHz with CPU temp of 70c

Just as an update, CPU Temperature is now sitting on 65C after 1 hour of Prime95, although it can sometimes shoot up to 69 or 70C and stay there for a while.

Am I just reading this wrong somehow?

Hi,

I recently bought a new custom pc, but kept old 560 Ti in it.
So System what I have now:
850w PSU Corsair;
16gb Kingston Ram 1600Mhz;
3770k i7 Intel Cpu @ 4.7Ghz
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H;
Gigabyte 560 Ti Video card;

There is 2.2 Cm distance between Cards. I would get a 560 Ti in no time if I wouldnt be worried about the heat.

I want to buy a new video card or add another 560 Ti. But Selling my current 560 Ti would be hard here.
I could get a new 560 Ti for 300$ (Hate prices in Latvia(East Europe))
or Gigabyte's Gtx 680 2gb For 740$(Price here)
or Gigabyte's Gtx 670 2gb for 570$(Price Here)
I have a chance getting Evga's 680 FTW 4gb from US but its gonna be only on october 630$ (Price in the US)

Question is, What would you do if you were me?

EDIT: I am using old Monitor - 1440 x 900 Resoulution, Going to buy 1920 x 1080 Soon
 

A:What should I get? Another 560 Ti or EVGA's 680 FTW?

My opinion based on the fact that you aren't yet capable of gaming at 1080p resolutions is stick with your 560 till October and then get a much cheaper 670 from the US (instead of the FTW). For $630 you're inching pretty close to a pair of 670s @ $800. The rest of your machine would NOT be a bottleneck to a pair of 670s but I'd be willing to bet you would be happy with just 1 of them.

Maybe Dell don't allow you to change the graphics card? Maybe you can try the card in a friend's PC.

Btw $230 is very expensive for that card, about twice the market value.

I wonder if EVGA had the official 'okey-dokey' before pushing out this little gem. It handily bests the GTX 580 while sporting 2GB 's of memory.(only 1GB per GPU however). In many situations it will give the GTX 590 a run for its money...actually for about $200.00 less. At the same price as the average GTX 580, this card would seem to be ready to cannibalize sales of both the GTX 580, and 590 if it is made widely available. It's seemingly an odd move, but a tremendous card according to the folks over at PC Perspective

From PC Perspective:

A:EVGA GTX 560 Ti 2 Win 2GB dual-GPU graphics card

The card more than likely has Nvidia's stamp of approval since at the price point it equals enthusiast territory, and like the dual GTX 460 EVGA launched earlier, I think the card is neutered on being SLI'ed with another of it's kind ( strike one). Nice niche card but...
At $500+ it's also going up against EVGA's own GTX 560Ti DS (with similar cooling) that's clocked faster and would certainly have more OC headroom at the same price point (SLI) (strike two)
Like the dual-GTX460 (and the PowerColor dual HD 6870) I wouldn't think the card would see widespread release. It checks the same boxes as the conventional two card setup ( good price/ perf. relatively cool'n'quiet ..but is still saddled with the 1GB frame buffer and 256-bit bus that makes it less than suitable for Surround/ 3D/ 3D Surround (strike three).

I'm actually surprised that EVGA haven't launched a dual version of their GTX 580 Classified 3GB (just for PR's sake at least) and Nvidia probably would frown upon a GTX 570-2Win, but I'm also guessing that the PCB, extra memory and VRM's would make it prohibitively expensive in any case...so given that those two options are off the table, then a dual GTX 560Ti becomes the de facto choice I suppose.

Hello, this is my first attempt at addressing this issue, it seems that whenever my GPU is under load (its a Nvidia geforce gt 220 btw) it shoots up past 90 C. im rather sure its not bad airflow since all other parts of my system are running cool, including my cores (quad core) which are at maybe 45C under load.

im not sure what is causing this problem but i have to decide between purchasing extra cooling, or a new card. I was hoping someone could help me with the decision.

Thanks, Brandon

I'm still relatively novice at building, O/Cing, etc. and would appreciate some sage advice.
Board is an MSI 790FX hosting a Phenom 2 550 @ 3.64 (235x15,5) 1.39V on stock air.
Everest Ultimate shows me idle temps as follows:
MB 33c
CPU 29c
GPU 35-37c (5770 vapour x)
Northbridge 63c

After OC I ran Prime 95 for 3 hours, system stayed stable but I wasn't monitoring temps.. yea rookie.

Is my idle Northbridge temp too high? It seems out of proportion to my other temps.
Or... is the Everest sensor accurate? The heatsink isn't overly hot to the touch.

Thanks in advance for any help with this
 

A:Northbridge temp too high?

If that was under full load then no its not too hot.* They are designed to run at those temps.
Is your x 2 550 a BE? and were you running the HT/NB oc'ed? I would watch the temps if you plan to push it higher. If it still bothers you, you can pick up a after-market NB cooler for $20 and keep it below 50C under load. Its within operating temps but personally I like to keep the NB to 50c or below, but thats just me. You might also try to get a few free degrees out of iy and replace the thermal compound on the NB HS. *****be very careful if you do, you are dealing with a very small chip and it takes very little compound to be effective******

On a new build I have an air cooler ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2. I have an OC of 3.6 on a Phenom 1090. Not much but still an OC. I have several different things to check temp and all of them are saying 36 degrees at idle. They are also measuring all 6 cores and all of those say between 26-27. Is this a good idle temp or should it be less than this?
 

A:Temp reading question

These are very good Idle temps. I have a phenom II X3 720 OC'd to 3.8 and it runs at around 42-45c load. That is a higher overclock though and I' cranked up the vcore to get as much out of it as I could. You don't need to worry about temperature if it is under 50C. It's been my experience that you can run a CPU at 65C max without killing it. After 50C it really is your choice if you want to take the risk. You have a very good heatsink, though. You have lots of overclocking headroom if your CPU will hold up.

I can't find accurate info, for EVGA it says max noise 40 db, but at the same time it says it is the quieter of this class. For MSI i found review that says it only produces 31 db at full load.

How does mini-hdmi/dvi to hdmi work?

A:GF GTX 460 EVGA SuperClock / MSI cyclone

So, i found more information at goru 3d, they tested some of gtx 460 cards and now it is even tougher to decide.





MSI GTX 460 Cyclone OC - The idle noise levels coming from the card are downright silent, in idle you will barely hear the card as we measured 37~38 dBA, which is right below the threshold of noise coming from the PC itself.Click to expand...





eVGA GeForce GTX 460 768MB SuperClocked - Despite the temperatures being a little higher on this card, that does not have an effect on overall sound levels. At its hottest measured point (64 degrees C) the fan RPM had risen towards 45% RPM, and that's still very little. So even this massively overclocked SKU remains absolutely silent.Click to expand...

eVGA is a couple of fps faster than cyclone in most tests, but it doesn't have a voltage raise function if i decide to further oc. Whinch means max overclock is a bit lower compare to Cyclone.


In the end i may just buy the cheapest palin gtx 460 fot 145? and overclok it, i am sure i could oc it to 800mhz core and 4000mhz ram.

but no one answered anyway, I figured that it would be good if I check my CPU temp and I downloaded nVidia System Monitor and it showed me that my CPU temp is 80C, TBH I paniced!
WTF??
GPU temp is 49C but CPU is 80C I think it is extremely high, do you?
Also is this the correct measurement or it is an error in the software?
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.00 GHz
Picture:

 

A:CPU temp is 80C, measured via Nvidia monitor, is this possible?

It's entirely possible, and 80c is quite enough to shut the system down.

Before you do anything else you should check to make sure the heat sink fan hasn't come off the CPU, that the fan is working, and the fins are clean.

You can get a second opinion about the actual temps from several programs, "Speed Fan", and "SIW", (System Information for Windows). If you decide to use SIW, make sure you download the, ""Freestanding English Version". You don't have to install this version, and it's free. Yuo want this version; "SIW Without Installer (English-Only)", from this page; http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html

Plus, sometimes the motherboard's maker has software available for this purpose also.

A:Overclocked CPU with aftermarket cooler temp range questions

temps are fine, but if you wanted to test the cooler's limits raise the vcore a bit and monitor the temps via BIOS. when the chip idles in the mid to high 40's (and perhaps into the 50s), try running some CPU intensive applications, then monitor temps again. if the processor climbs into the 60s or 70s on load then i would say that's your limit. you may be able to keep the temps down a little bit with a high-performance thermal compound, but consider that an extra step...

Hi,
My first two builds both have Asus M4A785M boards and they both show consistently higher CPU temps on the BIOS then whichever performance monitoring software I'm using. IE: Everest, HW monitor, PC Probe, Moo0 etc.
I've done some OCing on stock air on both boards and none of my temps are excessive or erratic just reading higher in the BIOS then on the software (3-5C idle, 5-9C load).

Is this unusual? It seems weird to me because the software is reporting from the same sensors as the BIOS... what gives?
 

A:Discrepancies in temp readings

Whatever readings you are getting, trust the BIOS readings over any software you are using.
Best thing you could probably do is to start the pc up and let it run until the temperature normalises, then boot into the bios and record the reading.
Use that reading and add the offset to your software.

As an example, my thuban in bios might read 25C and when I boot into windows, CoreTemp says 15C. I add 10C to the CoreTemps offset, thus getting the more accurate readout.

Make sure you have the latest bios too .

A:CPU temp reaches 96C and restarts PC

You definitely should not require water cooling on that Pentium. What are the ambient temperatures like? I think that the thermal compund may have not been applied correctly or the contact between HSF and CPU is not sufficient. I hope you did not apply too much TIM. Sometimes that acts as an insulator resulting in very high temps. Remove the HSF and clean off all the residual TIM from it and the CPU. Ensure that nothing falls into the mobo as it could cause a short. Then re-apply the thermal compund and re-assemble it. If it still doesn't help, look to getting a better aftermarket HSF.

After failing to boot several times, I discovered that my CPU temp in the BIOS was 108*C, after which the computer shut down. It was caused by one of the heatsink pins coming loose. After I secured the heatsink, the computer booted up and all was well, with an idle CPU temp around 41*C, however, there is a noticeable drop in performance when running games.

Without getting into any technical aspects, I just wanted to know if having the CPU heat up to this temperature (I started it up several times before realizing the problem) would cause damage to the CPU AND/OR the motherboard. I can understand if the CPU has been damaged, but could it also have damaged the mobo?
 

A:CPU and/or mobo damage after 108*C CPU temp

It can, but doesn't usually... if the temperature rise is brief... No way to know without trying it...

Often the actual temperatures are not close to what your system reports... It can handle 64 to 70 degrees without trouble, and above that it is luck of the draw.

It will also read at that temp when it is off all night and I check right after I turn it on..........any suggestions?
 

A:Worried about mobo temp

To verify what the software is stating, check the temps in the actual system BIOS before the computer loads the OS, during POST. The mobo temp is typically read from the northbridge on the motherboard which controls RAM, video, and CPU. Some chipsets run hotter than others but 80+ temps isn't normal for anything I'd say; you def want to check it out.

There is usually a heat sink placed on the northbridge in which you may be able to reseat if you pull the motherboard out. Perhaps applying new thermal compound and reseating the sink will provide better temps. If you are overclocking the motherboard, you may need to reset the settings to default so that the NB voltage is within factory spec.

The Zalman grease (if that's what you ended up using) is okay but I've had better overclock temps using other solutions. The cooler itself should be fine just check that the fan is spinning at the correct speed under load.

if you're having trouble applying the thermal, take a look at this: http://www.arcticsilver.com/ins_route_step2intelas5.html

um, heat. lol

it's most-likely the northbridge chipset, so i would recommend cleaning out the tower and perhaps even installing a different northbridge cooler w/ fan. case fans may help with ambient temps inside the chassis, but a nb cooler would certainly help the chipset directly.

Hi guys. I have an Asus P5GC-MX Motherboard. Everytime I scan my system with an antivirus/antispyware software, the CPU temperature shoots up to 60 - 65 degrees Centigrade and the system runs quite loud. Is that normal?
 

A:CPU Temp Shooting Up

Your CPU fan is not very good. You should buy a better fan.
It is normal for CPU temps to go up under load, but the temp usually is lower and there is less noise when you have a good fan/cooling system.

Im playing the new AvP game on my pc with everything maxed out at res 1920*1080, cool game not even any slow down, but my XFI GTX 275 897Mb is reaching temps of 86c and thats with the fan set with EVGA presision to 95%. Can anyone advise if this temp is a bit extreem? What is the thermal threshold of this card? Am i in any danger of damaging/melting the card?
 

A:GTX275 Temp issue

The threshold temperature should be much over 86C. However, the XFX GTX 275 is expected to run at about 75C or lower on load. What case do you have? Is there sufficient airflow?

A:Urgent help temp 127 degree

Tell us more about your monitoring software... and your cooling fans... along with case fan and case size.

First thing I would do is replace the power supply with one of more wattage and a reputation ands specs that show more constant output...

Then I would be certain I have cleaned the CPU and re-applied the thermal paste to be certain it is as thin as possible while still providing contact... as the common mistake is having to much. Too much acts as an insulator rather than a heat transfer tool.

Then I would replace the fan most likely to be ineffective.

I trust Everest and Realtemp, but I worry about your sensors.

Much more info might be helpful.

So I just built a new system for myself and I have been running prime95 to test out some overclock settings and using speedfan to watch my temps. Occasionally when I come to check on it, Speedfan is toggling in-between two different temps for 'system' and 'cpu'. IE, cpu will show the (real) temp of 63 C, and system will have its real temp, then a few seconds later they will both switch to bogus negative numbers (of a different value), then switch back a few seconds later. This goes on forever until I open a menu in speedfan or restart it.

Has anyone ever heard of this happening?

The system in question is an i7 920 on an asus p6t.
 

A:Temp readings toggling in speedfan?

I have never heard of this happening before, i would not worry though. blame it on speedfan and try a diffrent temp monitor.

Hey,

I'm just looking at new fan controller with temp sensor. Another one i had was of lower quality but there was a real difference between the CPU temperature on the controller and that in Everest.

So the question is were exactly is the best place to put the CPU sensor. Ive heard its bad to put it in the heat sink of the CPU cooler so were is a good place.

I know you'll say they are just not very reliable but i would like to make it as reliable as possible.

I didn't add any temperature paste on the CPU since there already was some paste on the heatsink but I had some problem to insert correcly the heatsink on the board.

Do you have any ideas of what could be the problem?
Do you think I should add more temperature paste on the CPU?

I will remove and put the heatsink back tomorrow as soon as I can.

A:eVGA GeForce 9600 GSO Problem

It needs that power connection, usually there is a cable that comes with that card that you can attach one end (2x 4 pins) to the PSU and the other 6-pin to the graphic card.

It might just need that power.

If it still doesn't work, even if you think it is seated perfect take it out and put it back in.

You know it seems unlikely but I just bought a 9600 GT yesterday and put it in. I had the exact same problem. Power was connected, it was in just fine and yet no signal.

I took it out and made sure there was no dust and that it was in there correctly when I put it back in and It is working fine for me now.

Yes, to a degree, but Nvidia has included every setting you might think you need but it does require a bit of digging and patience.

EVGA website does not even display the card anymore and it wasn't very easy to find it there.Click to expand...

Well, true enough, but this is true of most manufacturers sites now. They try lead you right to the 8800GT cards right from the jump. I suppose they figure that's what everybody's looking for at the moment.

Overall i would have to say that if You (like me) have a low budget, but do want shader 4 and DX10 compatibility this is the card for You.Click to expand...

I didn't take the time to check this out, but I believe the GT8400 also is HDCP compatible as well.
If you aren't trying to establish yourself as a legend in gaming circles this could be the graphics card for you, as it adds dual monitor and High def capability to the average computer with onboard graphics.

I would also suggest that people check out this GT8500 from Biostar: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814141065 this card is a steal ($35.00) after MIR. It has 512MB of GDDR2 of it's own (doesn't use any system RAM), and is 128 bit access. I believe the 8400s are 64 bit, but keep in mind I don't know if that is really a downside when you consider the likely uses of either of these cards. They both should do a bang up job of driving your flat screen TV and monitor.

my video card(XFX 8600GT) ideal temp is 57'C , is that ok.

System spec-
CPU - Intel C2D 2.20 GHz (E4500)
BOARD - Intel DG33FB
SMPS - Odyssey 450 watt
DRIVE - SONY Optiarc DVD RW AD-7190A
HDD - ST3802110A (80 GB) - 7200 rpm
Video - XFX 8600gt 512 MB: DDR3
RAM - Simmtronics DDR2-667 Mhz
-(PC-5300) Hyundai 2 GB DDR2-667 DDR2DRAM (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz)
(4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz) (3-3-3-9 @ 200 MHz)
 

A:Ideal GPU temp

That temp for your GPU is Ok.

The GPU can run about 20c hotter than the CPU safely.
If the CPU is less than 50c Idle and no more than 65c under load then that is within Normal Temps
If GPU is less than around 65-70c Idle and no more than 80-85c under load then that is within Normal Temps as well.

Hopefully that will answer your Question.

I seem to be getting 3 different temperature readings for my CPU(E8500 3.16Ghz). PCProbe 2 reports CPU temps of 70-80c, CoreTemp reports 56c and Real Temp reports 46c. If the first readings(70-80c) were correct i think the CPU would fry or at least blue screen the system. Can anyone out there explain why this is ocuring? Or a Temperature monitoring tool/utility that will report more realistic values? My specs E8500 3.16Ghz, P5N32-E SLI, EN9600GT, 2Gb DDR2, 570w PSU, Vista Ultimate.
 

A:Correct Temp Reporting

Unless you are having computer problems like you mentioned, freezing, blue screens or shutdowns, temp readings are not critical. Temp sensors on motherboards are notorius for being less than accurate. Even if you used a good thermocouple to measure the temps, it would depend on where you placed the probe to get the most accurate temp. For a CPU the best place for the probe tip would be between the CPU heatsink and the CPU die... As you can imagine, this is not practical

Now I know the CPU shouldn't really exced 60C but what about a GPU?
Mine runs at about 55C to 70C (70 when playing games) but when not doing anything its about 60C

So what should the Temp of a GPU be?
 

A:GPU Temp

Technically i believe the GPU can be a bit higher than what the CPU runs at.
CPU's have a threshold of about 100C forcing an automatic shut down, Graphics cards have them about 20C higher than that
At 70 under load that is bordering quite Hot but ok, as long as it doesn't hit 80C and over at that temp it could start causing damage.
The same with a CPU over 60C and that could start causing damage.

Which Graphics Card do you have?
Normally a Idle temp around 50-60C is what is normally seen and around 70-80C when under load for GPU's, Because this is only a rough estimate on GPU's yours may be different

Ok quick question, are the GeForce 8800GTS Superclocked compatible w/ a Win2k OS?

I believe that if your GPU is compatible with your P.C., you should be able to run any Windows.

A:Bios update EVGA 590 SLI or the Foxconn one

Well you've obviously been to the evga site already and didn't like the options you were given, so please let me write you a nice little BIOS firmware update program. It'll take a few hundred hours of learning and continuous testing, but if you don't want to burn a disk then I feel I have no other choice. :rolleyes:

So what is the real problem? What don't you have or know what to do?

Hi all long time no see I was at work this morning when I noticed a product sitting on the counter n ow this isn t uncommon as there is often product laying around before the store opens it s my job to put it all away Anyways this particular product was an EVGA USB-VGA Adapter I took a closer look at it question USB just VGA Adapter, a EVGA little and it appears that what it does is allow people that don t have secondary monitor outputs to use an open USB port to achieve the same effect Now I do have DVI ports on my computer and monitors but my question is not related to that it s this would I EVGA USB VGA Adapter, just a little question be able to reverse the flow meaning instead of going from the computer through USB to the monitor could I go from something outputting a VGA signal and put it into the computer Here is the product on Circuit City s where I work website http www circuitcity com ssm eVGA catOid - rpem ccd productDetail do I ve been looking for a way to record in at high def even p from my Xbox I have the VGA adapter for the Xbox and I would like to look into getting this if I could plug my s VGA output into this and record it through some app for the computer Maybe FRAPS or some screen recording software If anyone knows anything about this product or can use deductive reasoning I can t to save my life on things like this to figure out whether I could use this for this purpose I would be grateful indeed this might be just what I m looking for Thank you in advance nbsp

When I first got my Radeon 3850, the temp was around 39 c at idle at 50% fan speed. Now, after regularly cleaning dust from it, it averages 55 c at idle at 60% fan speed. Normally this won't bother me much, except that for some reason my computer auto shuts down when temps reach 70c, which is especially annoying while gaming. Would you guys know the solution to this problem?
 

A:Problem with higher temp of comp

I think the auto shut down is only for the CPU.

As for solving the problem... depends on how you caused the problem. Is it possible that more dust went into the HSF unit, and caused some clogging? I know this might be a little hard to get rid of...

Another solution would be to change the whole HSF unit. You'd get lower temps, but it'll cost you money, and the warranty.

I have a 780i Evga mobo and a q6600. Also i am running a evga 8800 gt akimbo 1gb video card.

I was wondering if hwmonitor is the best program for temps and also if the following temps were ok.

q6600 temps

core #0 - 47 C
core #1 - 47 C
core #3 - 44 C
core #4 - 43 C

Also what is the best core 2 quad heatsink and fan ?

The temp for the 8800 gt Akimbo is

58 C

So if anyone could reply it would be very much appreciated. Thanks

I have a program called Thermal Analysis Tool or TAT that monitors the temp of my Processor. Currently its displaying 54c for CPU 0 and 52 for CPU 1. Then I have another program called Intel Desktop Utilities which also monitors the temp. and it shows that my processor is only 45c. Which of the two is really true?

i just bought a new EVGA 6800gt off of ebay and i want to know if it is possible to remove the stock heatsink and turn it 180 degrees and reattach it. if some could find a pic of the underside of the heatsink it would help me out alot. the reason i want to do this is because i have a pci slot fan and i want to use it to suck the hot air from the video card
 

A:Nvidia EVGA 6800gt heatsink

You might be able to get some pics off google.

However, without checking, I'd have to say no. From experience, their heatsinks were manufactured to fit the graphics card and RAM, which are of different heights. Therefore, the underside of the heatsink isn't flat... and you get the idea hopefully.

Too bad its Windows 98. Mozy Home seems to do exactly what you need.

Here is a list of some others, a few of which are free. XDrive looks promising except that I couldn't find OS requirements: http://davie.wordpress.com/2006/06/30/couchsurfingcom-goes-down-but-a-lesson-learned/

Hi fellas, im wanting to build a PC for gaming and im not sure which way to go. Im a bit new at choosing my components and was wondering what you guys thought. The Asus Striker 790i or the EVGA 790i? Or any other mobo ideas?

Ive currently ordered a Q9450 CPU.

Once ive chosen the motherboard another problem im going to have is the DDR3 ram. I havent got a clue which goes best with what. Any help would be appreciated!
