Default Help with graphic card.

Hello everyone, my 7900gt KO was always at 38c-41c when playing World of Warcraft all day-all night.

Now this morning the tempatures went up drastically to 50-54c?

Been having this card for only about 3 weeks? Does it get hotter as it gets older or how can I fix it?

No. Jayvon dont listen to this guy.


Your tempeture is perfectly fine.

Your on a stock cooler and its whats expected. Really start to worry when it gets into the 80 range. other then that its fine.

My guess is maybe a climate change, but I doubt it could drastically change the tempture that much.


What program are you using to monitor the tempetures?

I wouldn't worry about it, could just be the initial settling, at first it might of read false temperatures or something.

My 6800 can get to about 80 degrees celcius sometimes, although the 6 series cards generally take higher temperatures better than the 7.

Don't worry about it is what I'd do, 50 degrees is not very hot, the shutoff is probably 120 degrees.

Even if it does break, as long as you havn't tampered with the card you can return it, it probably has a lifetime or at least 2 year warranty.

So do you guys think the Fan went dead and I should return it to get a new one? Or is it the 7900gt ko? Its been playing games fine, but I dont know?
