My GPU at idle = 65 C

8800GTS 640MB

Is temperature normal?

Sometimes when I'm scrolling some program or some website page down the white background turns to pinkish colour, is it GPU faulty or suppose like this?

Thank you. :thumbsup:

Thats a little hot. Whats the ambient Air temperature? Make sure the fan on the GPU and case fans are operating correctly. Also idle temperatures will vary depending on what screen saver your computer uses. If you have a graphic intensive screen saver it will use the GPU during idle time, but this shouldn't cause the GPU to get that hot. Check the computer for LARGE dust bunnies and give it a good cleaning using Canned Air. Make sure to turn off the computer and unplug it before removing the Case side or cover. Be sure to properly ground your self to the case.

Upon researching on the Nvidia Forums this seems to be an OK temperature. You dont want to get much above 85C. Remember though the cooler you keep the card the longer it will last and the better it will run.

Reference :
Link 1 This is about the 6 series
Link 2 This covers the 8800 GTS

I think will get a vga cooler, when running games sometimes can go up 80+.

But the scrolling of webpage with white background turning to pinkish, is that graphics card problem?

Does all of the color on the monitor shift or just the white backround. If its just the back round of the web page I would suspect the video card. Make sure you have the most current drivers and benchmark your card with 3dmark. from Futuremark and see how it scores.

Only the white background is pinkish while scrolling.


Benchmark is great for cpu and graphics but ram seems have problem, I got only 4000+ for 2GB XMS2 Corsair 6400 DD2 800. seems like it should have 8000+ according to website and mine is only better than 42% overall for my memory.

How do I check if its 4-4-4 or 5-5-5 and how do I change this ? Thanks.

Anyone have same score for using same ram as me or is my ram having problems? :thumbsup:
