Normal and High Video card temps?
after spending 30 or so minutes pinning down my video card heat sensor, i finally got the correct reading. on idle, my video card runs around anywhere from 40-50 celcius. on heavy graphics load it runs at high 50's all the way to 60-61 celcius.. I am not overclocking at all, I am infact using the OverDrive feature on the 9600 XT but it automatically finctions to raise and lower my clockspeed depending on the temperature.
Is this high, normal? should I turn off OverDrive to lower temp's if 55-60 celcius is in fact a high temp for a video card when onload?
