Hi, when I'm not playing any games my PNY GeForce GTX 470, is about 125 degrees F. When I am playing games, the temperature is anywhere between 150 and 180 degrees F. I have a failing fan in my case that I plan on replacing, so I'm just wondering if my video card isn't too hot.

Thanks,
Mike

I would say that is waaay to hot, I wouldnt use it until you get the fan repaired.

Try getting some fans in your case which might help and try cleaning the graphics card fan.

I think I found an answer. On PNY's support site it says that the GTX 470 gets to about low to mid 90 degrees Celsius when running 3D applications. When I am running 3D applications it gets to about 70-80 degrees which is still kind of hot since I have a liquid cooling system. The card is brand new (days old) so it can't be dust in the GPU fan. I ordered a new fan to replace the failing one, so I hope that I'll get cooler temperatures.

Many new cards are designed to run that hot, I still am not a fan of it since even if the card can run that hot it raises my system temp. My 4850 runs that hot stock, and I have to manually turn the fan up to get it to drop down-I dont like my cards running hotter then 55-60 C even if theyre designed to run hotter, and using an third party fan controller such as rivatuner often solves my problems.

The rest of my system is 30-40 degrees Celsius which makes me happy. But I hope my new fan will cool my GPU more.
