Not ATI, but this is my current set up, and the top card gets the hottest at 84 degrees. The middle hangs around 60 degrees (it isn't overclocked) and the lowest stays in the mid 70's.

Just a quick question.

Can some one tell me how to check fan speed and GPU temp?


GPU-Z
MSI Afterburner

you can find link to them in this thread, if you look a bit up :)

CoreTemp is also good, and it has a windows gadget as well as a logitech G-series display Smiley: thumbsup

Edit: Not sure if it does GPU's now that I think about it.

I'm running dual GTX 465s and FFXIV is cooking my system. Every other game runs fine (75-85C on both cards while playing) but for some reason FFXIV runs them up to the 90s. This is with an aggressive custom fan setting in Afterburner.

I've resorted to keeping the side panel on my case open and putting a large box fan right next to it. Keeps the temps in the 70s that way, but really it's not an ideal solution.

I hope they optimize the GPU usage for this game soon... but I'm sure that's not high up on their priority list.

my new card Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 got
1851 score
temp around 50ish
gpu load around 50, spiked at 99% when it started.
fan speed 30ish%

so i guess the old one was just...well old :) or just very crap.
actually it was crap, cause it had some issues even before XIV.
like fan wasnt working as it should, making alot of noice. so i put pencil in it, to stop it for a while, until GPU got hot, and fan would work propperly.
ofc i forgot the pencil alot of the time, and comp shut down lol.
think that was bad for the health of the card too :D

My XFX 5850 non-reference card with a decent OC never really gets above 70 with about 50% fan. I monitor it with MSI afterburner and have custom fan settings.

You can do it on one of the tabs in the ATI Catalyst Control Center if you have an AMD/ATI card. It will show temp, fan speed, and over clocking options.

My 5570 is running at about 98 C, so I guess if that ends up being life shortening for my card it'll just be a good excuse to get a more powerful one when it dies.

How involved is removing a laptop CPU/GPU and reapplying new thermal paste? Is it just a matter of removing some parts from the cover and taking pieces out like you would on a desktop mobo? I've only owned one laptop, and only for 2 months now.


Phil,

Here's a video of someone taking apart our specific laptop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp90M_N6dzs

I love the part where he mangles the keyboard and says it's normal >.> I haven't run hot enough to want to mess with it, yet.

it should be high priority. I dont think ppl will be happy if the game break their GPUs :)

On 100% Full graphics, my ATi Radeon HD 5830 isn't running very hot, it's a stable temperature of about 108F according to my temperature monitor.

Edit: Then again my case has a pretty neat cooling system. But I haven't had issues.


Is that water/liquid cooled? That's 42°C... what case are you using as well?

@Wint

What type of CPU cooler is that? Probably won't fit in my case but I like the looks of it.
