    I have a SAPPHIRE X850XT 256MB card and it is currently idling at 110 degrees or so according to the Everest Home Edition utility. It is installed in a Dell Dimension 8400 desktop pc and I just cleaned the case out of dust. It is also not sitting next to a wall or anything else. I check the fans and the two in the case are spinning and the fan on the video card is also working.

    I'm a little frustrated because it has worked fine in the past but now my system starts to beep if I play any graphic intensive games. The temperature has gotten as high as 145 degrees last night while trying to play.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.

    i don't know how much heat your card can take, but that's not allright, my card stays max 74-77 degrees and that in full load.
    you should try to create a custom fan profile in rivatuner. Mine is set to 66 duty cycle so my card can be cooled properly.

    110 C!? Your fan HAS to be not running or something. Those temps are way above what they should be

    The temp raised to about 117 while idling this morning. I took the above advice and installed RivaTuner and set it at 60%. It is a bit louder than usual but it only reduced the temp to 106 so far.

    Any other ideas?

    EDIT: Sorry, should have stated the the temps were in F not C.

    Doh! Sorry about the confusion. The utility that I was using earlier posted temps in F. I now have RivaTuner installed and monitoring the temp. I also followed one of the guides in the faq to set up various fan speeds depending on the current temp. Great guide btw!

    Thanks again for the sound advice.

    lol @ this thread....

    I have to use rivatuner to crank up the fan speeds on my x1900xt just to keep it running in the mid 80's c. at full load.

    You can hear it all the way in the next room when gaming. :frown:
