Furmark runs on 8
Ok, I pre-tested Furmark on my Intel i5 2500k rig first. That is a strange test indeed. My 6870 got up to 87 c during the stability test.
Ok, what test should I run on the 560Ti?
Gosh, I am totally new to this. I hope you don't laugh at me or make fun of me, but tonight was the first time I ever tested a GPU.
Is there any chance I might damage my GPU or system? I seems as if it places components under extreme tests and temps.
EDIT: Ok, I tried the Furmark on this GTX 560Ti. I think they should rename this Furmark software to "Turn your GPU into a very, very hot oven."
After about 5 minutes on the Stability Test, the temps went from 44c up to 79c [174f]. The back plate [where the connectors for the monitor go] was so hot I could not touch it.
The GPU even began to emit an odor I have never smelled before...if I would have to describe the smell, I would have to say "baked electrical components."
I think I could have easily fried an egg on it, and I am not joking or exaggerating.
The air coming out the back vent of the GPU literally felt like a space heater.
I shut it down before it got even hotter.
Whew! What now?
Did this test prove anything that I can take away?
