Hi all

is it normal for a graphics card (gts 250) to crack 80 degrees when running a game (moh warfighter) ?

cpu max out at 53 degrees, mb around 60 degrees, room around 23 degrees

Ha the other day we were testing our old GTS250 at work and it was running at 103 degrees until we gave it a good clean and applied thermal paste, at that point it dropped to 80 degrees.

We were running a graphics burn in test to see its max temperature, 80 being straight after a clean and re-paste.

You can clean it out yourself and see the difference, but graphics cards are made to run hot (but not too hot - 100 degrees is not safe)

GPU's run hot, it's nothing to worry about unless your getting into the mid 90's. My old HD 7950 would easily hit 80+ in an intensive game, same with my rather old 8800GT.

my 6990 runs at 59c under load and sits at 53c when not doing much. I do have water coolling and a big case with lots of fans.

If it concerns you that you may be running too hot during those heady summer gaming sessions, you can always fit after market coolers to your card.
You can take off the casing on your card and attach a 3rd party offering with anywhere up to 3 fans and better heat-sink capabilities; This is also very useful for if you want to overclock and extend the life of your card (and by that I mean, it will be more powerful so you might squeeze in a few more AAA games before having to upgrade it).
