What is a good temperature for a factory overclocked GTX 460?

as long as it's under like 80C it's fine. GPU's tend to run pretty close to the threshold just because of the nature of GPU's. what's it running at?

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

That's plenty fine.

If you see it running hot while gaming try raising the fan speed a little with EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner.

I use MSI Afterburner already. But Afterburner has an auto fan option. So I guess I shouldn't be worried.

Yeah do not worry about fan speed.

I have mine overclocked to 880 core, 1050 memory, 1760 shader from stock 725/900/1450. It underclocks to 50/68/101 at idle so the temp is ~27*C.

At full load in games I'm yet to exceed 58*C after many hours. I get up to around 70*C in Furmark.

Make sure to download driver version 266.58 from the nVidia website.
