Windows 7: Overheating?

Overheating?

Hello all,

I have a GTX 470 and when ingame it seems to hit 98c! What temps do you get from your 470 or something similar?

98c is a bit too high. It's only rated at maximum to 105c. GeForce GTX 470

You're getting pretty close to possibly damaging it I would think.


I would raise your fan speed up while in gaming. And/or take it off Auto fan and find a nice manually set fan speed percentage. I myself use EVGA Precision for that. You could also use something like MSI Afterburner as well.

My GTX 480 with the stock fan running 2 monitors would only get about 80c maybe running the fan on auto while gaming. Where as I had the fan at manual 65% or so would probably reach up to about 70-75c in gaming - 2 monitors running though.

I have an aftermarket fan on mine now though, so I have lower temps overall.

Well I wouldn't say MSI AfterBurner is very good. I just leave the fan on auto and I am getting those temps. Is this normal for AfterBurner?

I know several people who have had good results with the free SpeedFan.

I just downloaded this, I'm trying to work out what is normal temperature for a laptop?

There are so many variables to consider that it's hard to define what is "normal". However, I think this article gives some good advice and some reasonable temperature guidelines.

My temps do not show with SpeedFan. Only with CPU-Z temp thing.

Use MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision like what Airbot said and set a manual fan speed of something like 65% - 70% and it will help with your temps.
