Hi, I would like to know what idle temp my GEFORCE 7800GS Graphics Card should be.

PC SPECS
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+,
CPU Speed: 2.01 GHz, 512KB
Motherboard Name: Gigabyte GA-K8NS Ultra-939
OS: WinXP Home Edition 5.1 SP2 (Build #2600)
Video Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GS (256 MB)
Disk Drive SAMSUNG HD160JJ (160 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II) X 2
Sound: Realtek AC97 Audio
System Memory: 1024 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM) Device Description DIMM1: Corsair VS512MB400

My average idle speed is 40-43 is this normal ?
And when playing games it shoots upto 48-51
My CPU runs at around 28-32 idle
And when playing games it shoots upto 35-38
I have 3 80mm Fans blowing in air.
I have 1 80mm Fan blowing out
and 1 Exhaust system fan.

Is this totally normal or is there something i need to do about it??

My gf eVGA 7800 gs runs about 45-47 normal. Gaming 47-51. My 6600 gt ran at 55 games. Seems fine.

I guess it all depends on the card and manufacter and also threasholds of your video card. Some cards like ati run little hotter ingeneral. But thats fine cause threasholds are usualy higher.

About my spelling, If you say anything about it im gonna hunt your nerdy english aniel retentive arrrssse down and beat the elcrapo right out of you!!!!

The only reason i ask is when playing BF2 it always seems to run alot hotter and seem to crash out on me from time to time.. Ive been reading some past post's about these issues. Maybe there is a fault with these 5700's and not just a bad batch as some people do say??

I was thinking of writing to nvidia and seeing what they have to say about it.. there answer will probably its just standard and tell me not to worry but what the hell its worth a try!!!

Also i have just upgraded my PSU 2 a 550w. I was running a 350w, and i have updated my gfx firmware to 87.25 but i havent actually played BF2 as of yet. Going to give it a shot and see if that makes any difference.. Im not sure what the firmware update actually does or if its a update for my gfx card but ive put it on.. Lets see what happens.

My 7800 GS' idle temps vary from 42 to 46 so I wouldn't worry about it, seems normal.

My 7800GS idls around 40C, sometimes hits a little over 50C under load.
Your temps are fine.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.
