Default Max temp for a x1950gt?

My x1950gt gets to 95c degrees under full load :laughing:

I just want to know what temp it will start being dangerous of my computer

I think it needs new paste so when i can get a really small screwdriver i will put some on.

idles 50 - 55



Edit: When i say full load i mean things that actually use the card, games like 1.6 or gunbound are 60c max

not dangerous but it is a bit toasty.i would clean dust and stuff out of the heatsink and possibly reset the whole thing with some fresh thermalpaste

The card isn't that dusty :/

When i usually clean it, it drops about 2 degrees

paste is almost gone so I'm pretty sure thats the reason

wow...95C! The card can take it, but if you want it to last, do what gurusan said. And if you can, add in a side intake fan or get an aftermarket cooler to help cool the card even further.
