I got a new LCD thermal probe so I set off to monitor my GPU. I'm running a Gf2 MX 64 mb. I opened the side of my case to install the temp probe. Guess what I found... The heatsink hanging from 1 of 2 pins that holds it to the card. Great huh? Well I fixed it after some work. I put some artic silver 3 on it (the stock thermal compound looked like my 11 year old sister put it on) Well I've seen Gf2's w/o heatsinks.....with heatsinks.....with heatsinks and fans...with water blocks.... well I bought a mini-orb for my northbridge and I need to run back to the store to return a cathode, so i'm going to pick up a new HSF. But I'm just wondering how hot is too hot for a GPU? It runs as hot as 125 deg F w/o any stability issues....but that scares me..... I know I get pretty scared when my CPU gets that hot. I have 5 case fans and it ran at 125 under load w/o the fans on..... when I flip my toggle...and the fans turn on, it usually drops all internal temps 15-25 deg. Normally I only turn the fans on when I'm doind CPU intensive stuff...like games....is it ok to run the CPU at 100 under full load? how about 125 when surfing the web? Please comment...should I be even more scared?
