Hi all, I just bought a 800W PSU today, that gigabyte Odin GT ..

My idle temps (when i first open the pc could start @ 50) when i start using the pc for a while, opening IE, msn, etc, could reach 65.

I start a game, for example COD4, it could reach 90C (the highest ive seen)
then after 5 mins after i exit the game, it drops down to 75-74

its been 15 mins now i've exited the game and its on 74...i'll open the AC and go to sleep and i'll find it below 70 when I wake up...

Is that okay?

All Everest readings and im talking GPU not GPU diode.

right now here are the temps:

GPU Ambient: 67
GPU: 74
GPU Diode: 82

PC Specs:

Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit
Gigabyte Odin GT 800W PSU
Gigabyte M59-SLI-S5
Gigabyte 3D Galaxy 2 Liquid Cooling
AMD Athlon 6000+ X2 64bit Overclocked @ 3.3 Ghz
nVIDIA XFX 8800 Ultra Extreme Edition
Creative X-fi Elite Pro
4x 1GB DDR2 Kingston 800 MHZ
1x WD 500 GB SATA2
1x Toshiba 150 GB SATA2
1x Seagate 150 GB SATA2

My GTX would reach 90 degrees with the stock cooler.

My GTX even heavily overclocked never reached 90c on the stock cooler, max was 75c but then again I have excellent case air flow.

As long as there are no artifacts , you're good to go.

No artifacts so far...performance is perfect too.

Same here, my overclocked GTS is 44*c idle and 63*c Full Load :
Cold room and stock fan at 100% :D

Ive also seen a friends GFX card go over 100*c during a gaming session and it worked fine & still does, but i wouldn't recommend it

You guys have seriously bad airflow. Put a single 120mm fan in front ot it (that in turn gets fresh air), and watch the temps drop. SLI GTX's at ultra clocks, they stay under 75c.

The reason mine used to get up to 90 degrees on the stock cooler was primarily bad airflow (before the P180b) and the fact I like my room at 80 degrees. :o

I think a front intake fan on the case is a must for any hot GPU.

Yeah unless you own a cooler master centurion 5 case. Best damn case I have ever owned.

Same here, about 90-95C on both GTX (stock clock and cooler).
I have tons of fans in that stupid case, intake and exhauts, room temp is 19-23c
No crash or artifacts. As long that it does not lock up, i'm good.

It's normal. Mine would load at 90C on the stock cooler. I believe that the Ultras run on slightly more voltage than the GTX and thus run a little hotter.

normal for stock cooling but not good at all... i would look into getting a better cooler if i were you... HR-03 plus is a good one... ive seen my GTX overclocked go up to 99*C... with the HR-03 plus its always less than 75*C

Some of you guys really need to manage your case airflow a bit better. I recently installed the HR-03 myself on my overclocked 8800GTX and load temps have yet to exceed 59c with this thing on there.

I got second 8800GTX card and due the design of XFX 680i motherboard the second PCIe16 is too close to the bottom of case, so when i installed the card the hot air literally was trapped there...My first card would never go over 80C load and my second card last night peaked 100C. I got the card a few days ago, and yesterday was first day of gaming. When i saw 100C i quit the game and started thinking how to get hot air out of there. Well i took 120mm fan and installed it inside case so it blows directly to cards (pretty much covers both). It created the pressure and hot air found a way to go out of case through mesh on window.
I started a game again holy crap, both card do not go over 77C after 3 hours of play. To be honest i would not feel comfortable with anything over 90C even though the card can operate fine up to 110C.

That's exactly what I did too, but somehow here nobody realises that, and say 90c is perfectly acceptable. Which is nuts.

hell of doom is correct 110*C is the Thermal limit of the card :)

If its an EVGA just take off the stock cooler and re paste the GPU with AS5
