Powercolor Radeon X800GTO 256MB PCI Express....

Dunno about temps, but mine used to overheat VERY frequently. It would crash games back to the VPU recovery console... The only way I got around it was to by an aftermarket GPU Cooler (ArcticCool ATI Rev. 4) Works a treat now and hasn't overheated!

Uhmmm, my intergrated Radeon Xpress 200 stays around 34C at idle and 39C on a full load. You just don't want it to go over 55. If it's 45-50C at load, I wouldn't worry. If it's really heating up, may think about a PCI fan car you place under it and it'll cool that card down, or as JPHarvey did, but a aftermarket cooler.

Hey There, I have the ATI Radeon X850 256MB. No problems, no overheat, nothing to report bad. I don't know enough to check the temps you ask for, but I hope this helps you out :thumbsup:

HIS Radeon X1600 PCI-e 256mb..... The IceQ cooling keeps it 11 degrees under the stock temperatures, which is great for overclocking :thumbsup: i've had no worries with it at all.

Let's see, I have the ATI Radeon X1900XT and it idles at about 50-55 degrees C. When under load for a couple hours it gets around 65-70 degrees C. The max temp for the card before it starts to slow down is about 100 degrees C.

Are those temps healthy??? Or are temps handled differently between the CPU and the GPU?

Seeing 65C-70C on a modern high-end GPU is normal. Over 70C I would expect the lifetime to start diminishing. But it should not be a problem unless your planning to use it 5-10 years.

Most of the current generation of GPU's are able to handle such high temps. The only time it get's anywhere near 70 degrees C with me is if I play Oblivion for hours. The only issue I'm having with the card is it's size. There is literally an inch between the card and back of my hard drives. Those HDD's are getting a little hot but I'm not sure if it's because of their proximity to the GPU and the heat it produces. They are still within their thermal limits of 55C-60C though. I have the Western Digital WD2000JS and they feel cool to the touch.
