min: 38 max: 68
I played battlefield for an hour.
Same on 60% fan speed.
460 Gigabyte GV-N460OC-1GI
And OC at : clock: 850 shader: 1700 mem:2000 fan 60%
GTX 580 - Idle ~35c, Load ~67c , Max in stress tests 76c
(Reference cooling, Heavy OC'd, custom fan profile in AB)
Zotac GTX 460 Amp!
load: 69c (max)
Asus GTX 580 DirectCU II@stock
load: 70c (Crysis 2 DX11)
Idle temp varies from 29C to 34C, the fan profile tries to keep it at 32C.
Load temp varies wildly depending on the game and settings, Dirt 2 doesnt break 50C, Witcher 2 is a nearer 60C.
Overall, there are too many variables for this to mean much.
Load temps mean little without knowing the fan speed used and the load applied to the GPU.
To be remotely comparable, they need to use the same load.
Idle temps can also be affected by custom fan profiles and if higher voltage isnt turned off when idle.
Otherwise the same kit can produce results in excess of 20c different!
And thats not taking into account the different coolers
Room ambient temp can cause a large variation in both idle and load temps.
So can case airflow.
It's best to use the default fan profile when talking about idle and load temps. The 580 I use has that Nvidia power throttling stuff taken out so Furmark testing would be appropriate, although in my experience Crysis can put just as much load on the card and produce 'as hot' or hotter temps.
Load: 62 (72 on crysis2 and BFBC2)
Zotac GTX580 with Arctic Accelero XTREME Plus.
Fan Fixed at 42%
70C Stress Test
Additional info: Yes, dead silent
30C idle 60-65C load even when over-clocked the fans don't go past 60%
GTX 570 standard cooler 800/1600/2000 could go higher but haven't pushed it yet.
40c idle 65c load
manual fan speed 45c-45%fan/55c-55%fan/65c-65%fan etc.
off topic - mind if telling me what volts you used to get 4.8 on your 2500k? I have the same board as you and have only reached 4.2 but I'm only using 1.35v on the core.
silent version, 56 degrees no load, 65 degrees with load
lol, you will cringe.
1.52V with water cooling
You should be able to get near 4.5GHz with ease if you have a good cooler.
What cooler are you using?
How high you can clock is mostly dependent on the chip.
Not many break 5GHz.
Idle : 30c
Gigabyte SOC GTX 560 Ti @ 1000Mhz core. Fan profile: http://i.imgur.com/sc9lB.png
Idle: 35 C (at custom 37% fan speed, default is 40%)
Load (Crysis 2): 77-80 C (lower with case front door open, fan ~85-90%)
Ambient: 23 C
Eight case fans at 400-700rpm. Replacing the original thermal paste (twice) did not affect temperatures.
you will cringe even worse... stock cooling lol
but I just bought a Corsair H50 and am installing it soon. I guess if temps are good 1.52 is ok for daily use right? I heard these chips can withstand up to 1.65 on water
They start to die at around 1.6 volts
I dont recommend 1.52V, I'm testing the tech to see where its limits lie.
The max temp I have seen on a very hot day is 76C with a decent custom water cooler, that was running Prime95 small FFTs.
My hottest temp today is 54C while playing Dirt 2.
I wont be too bummed if I damage the chip (although I cant see that happening) as I will be forced to get LGA 2011 lol.
You are probably better off sticking to nearer 1.4V 24/7, this will help temps immensely.
It takes a lot of extra volts to get just that last bit higher, its not really worth the hassle, heat and power used.
Yeah you should get practically all your chip has to offer with the H50.
EVGA GTX 470 @ 1050 volts, 750 core.
Idle lowest: 38'c highest 44'c Winter/Summer
Load lowest: 77'c highest 88'c Winter/Summer
Average load is about 82'c. Stock HS with aggressive Fan profile with AB.
Crysis, CoH, Stalker, Witcher 2
