Well in the temperature readout area it says 'Thermal Threshold 145C' lol....yeah 145C, too bad I can't change it, I'd want to put it to warn me at like 90C not no freakin 145C lol.

I get worried when my x800 xt pe hits like 52C on stock cooling.
I'd figure it'd get way hotter than that. Beedubs X800Pro hits 80C regularly I believe.

GPU's have millions more transistors in them than CPU's....basically a GPU realistically is more insane than a CPU

Is about 50c a good temp for idle usageon an X800XT? what about if it is 50c under load, that would be pretty low huh?

I will be helping a technology impaired gamer buddy install a fan he bought, but has no clue how to deal with it.

He is running about 50c, however, I am not sure whether that is under load or not.

XS RULES!!! I have officially referred you.
