High 5870 temps?
I've recently picked up an XFX 5870, and fitted it with a Twin Turbo Pro. I've tested it out running Kombuster (Furmark) and Afterburner. I realize that furmark testing creates a crazy 'worst case scenario'... but does this temp seem a tad high to you for a stock card at such high fan speed? I would have been fine with high 60's under furmark, but I don't know...
(system in specs for those that haven't seen my thread)
Yea that Seems 15'C too high
With mine, Stock ref cooler, I idle 38-41'C Load @ 55-65'C
the twin turbo is a monster, in its price range. temps are not that bad, come on furmark will load it a good 10+ c more than your avergae game, although if memory doesnt fail me ati put something in the drivers against max power/usage of furmark...hmm...
I get up to 70 degrees Celsius in-game with my XFX reference with the fan on AUTO.
Also, one FURMARK run raises GPU temp to 70 at 30% fan speed.
At 50% fan speed, temp drops to 64 degrees. But a reference cooler at 50% is noisy!
I agree With 50% being to noisey.
Im not over clocking my 5870, Not because i dont want to, But because everytime i try to Overclock a ATI Card, I get HUGE failure.
SO untill Team green makes something i like again, Ill stick with Red and leave it Stock.
Well I'll give the Twin Turbo this much... it's SILENT. There's almost no sound change from 30% to 100% fan... and I can hardly hear it at all.
Depending on ambient temps I idle anywhere from 22C-33C and at full load up to 68C while gaming/benchmarking my dual 5870s. For example, I was idling at 22C just now, then ran Kombustor and I hit 62C on one GPU. The other was at 56C. The same as I see in games.
Furmark is not the best thing to use. It's not a good real world example. Though I've run it, I don't rely on it's readings for anything anymore. I use the Heaven, and Kombustor benchmarks for a more real world result.
*Waves to Delavan*:punk: (Assuming your the same one from NCIX.)
Hows that AC 5870 Extreme treating you? I had to remove mine for CrossFire.:sad: Otherwise I'd have no sound, and warmer cards. I put that noisy stock fan back on, but thankfully with the second card, I can now RMA this one and still have a computer. Wish it had been a second reference model though.
My MB has an 8x PCIE slot available spaced far enough away from the primary that I can XFire two of these in 8x8x. That shouldn't really make much of a difference for speeds, so provided I can find a long crossfire bridge when the time comes, there shouldn't be an issue.
As a point of reference, when I was trying out my reference 5870 with the stock cooler it was 38 / 68 (idle / load)
Now, under water, its 30 / 43 @ 1050 / 1350 / 1.3v :)
