    GPU Temp 58 C to hot??

    OK so I have a WC on my CPU witha dual fan my CPU is running a cool 38 - 40 C but I just ran PC wizrd (It seams to read +1 to 2 C) and my GPU is at around 59 C. Is this to hot???

    I took out some higher powered case fans for some quiter lower DB and CMF fans.

    I can put some better fans in I just wanted to see if this is to hot. BTW no OC on my GPU.

    Thanks

    For it being any 8800 it's not terrible. Are you load temps 59c or idle?

    If the 59c is idle temp then thats hot but if thats loaded temp its nothing to worry about.

    Use ATITool to create a load on your GPU.

    I would use realtime lighting to load the gpu to max temps.

    Also, gpus can get WAY hotter then cpus. I've seen nvidia cards above 90C.

    I can really feel the difference in airflow.
