Acceptable Temperature Range For A 6600 Gt?

Recommended Posts

I've got a PCI-Express XFX 6600 GT and when I OC, it can reach 62C at load. Idle, it's only around 47C, but 62C sounds pretty hot, should I be worried about my temps? Tanks.

chances are 62*C is not your true load temp, by the time you alt-tab or whatever to get to your temp monitor, the temp has dropped significantly

 

try getting Rivatuner, enable the hardware monitor to run in the background, run a benchmark or game for a while, and go back to see what your true load temp was.....

 

if you idle at 47*C, your load temps is likely 67*C or higher
