Windows 7: GPU mad overheat

GPU mad overheat

I recently got a new computer and finally got around to downloading SpeedFan. What I saw made me cringe and stutter. My GPU was running at an impressive !150! Celsius. I stopped my computer and cleaned the fan. I got it down to 112 right now, running it on open case (mind you that I monitored it at 239 at some point prior to the reboot). I kid you not, even SpeedFan was capped, showing me 199 on its icon)...GPU's fan is at 1750-1800 RPM and Core's at 1000. Room temp is 21-22 degrees. Is there anything I can do to help this? I dont feel like going to buy a new graphics cards for an already new computer...bypass? clock? RivaTuner(still getting acquainted..)? anything? plz help :/

HAHAHHHH, My brother has a similar motherboard with the same graphics, I think it's suppose to run at the temperature (his ran from 90-120C). I couldn't find a way to fix it, since it's onboard graphics which is with the southbridge. I installed an ATI Radeon HD 4650 and just completely ignored the temperature reading on it, so far, no problems have shown up(after 8months).

I am thinking this has to be a chip sensor incompatability

I touched the southbridge/igp heatsink, and it immediately gave me a burn, my friend that came over also touched it and burned himself as well lol.
Edit: Hey Doc, how do you get those perf. levels for your gpu?

Ouf, well you made my day man I was dropping unpleasant stuff in my pants thinking my Video Card was going to melt on me, remembering I had 45-60ish on my previous computers. Thanks again! much appreciated. I also have a win 7 crash problem, but I guess that will have to go to another section.

Eww. Your heatsink is uncoupled and/or your compound has dried to a crisp. Take the card out and take shots of the front and back of the card and we'll tell you how to take the sink off and fix it! From now on just get a Mac and you can just throw the whole thing in the trash and buy a new one for Steve

maby the temp sensor is off. even if its burning to the touch that can happen at 80-90 degrees if it was actually 199 i highly doubt the card would word it would be fried

Well according to XFX a 9800gt should start to artifact around 115c. 239c is 462.2 degrees F So I would think you'd get burned. I wouldn't just ignore it, I'd contact the manufacturer and at least find out the max temp and run a temp monitoring program, as well as possibly running more case fans and make sure I had good air flow.JMO. To much Heat= decreased life of the card. Fabe

Hp with AMD don't work....
