few min ago i was testing my card and find out something weird

the voltage i set was original 1.55v (vmoded) in 975
but when i measure it today in 680i it is like 1.65v ....
and even i remove the mod, the voltage reads 1.48v idle and 1.5v loaded....

i haven't test back in 975...
680i mobo is asus rog...

Other users have confirmed this 'feature'. I'm surprised that no one cares

Guess that might be why they run hotter on NF680i boards just means more overclocking room :)

My 8800 GTX idles around 82C in my 680i :( Under load it goes in the low 90's. Should I be concerned? :afraid: lol. No artifacts or locking though.

Yes

So what's the max safe operating temp?

Oh, and why did they put the graphics slot RIGHT by the hot CPU? There are 3 PCIe slots on my EVGA 680i board. Is it possible to run a single graphics card in say slot 2 or 3?

As long as the slot you are putting it in is PCI-Ex16, preferably.

Yep, all 3 slots are PCIeX16. I just noticed when installing the motherboard it said to use slot 1 for the graphics card. Maybe I'll just try sliding it over to slot 2 and see what happens (xmasgrin)

wow! you HAVE TOO do something about those temps mate. thats WAY too hot. the card wont last long at those temps! open the side of you case and point a desktop fan on it for now untill you figure out something more permanent. as an eg my GTS runs 48c idle and loads up at 60-62c max. i run my fan forced to 100% tho, that shaves about 10-15c off my load temps from the stock 60% fan speed.

I can't use another slot on the motherboard so I went with the 100% fan setting also. Now it idles at 68 and 87 under load :| Better I guess but still.. hmm.

I opened the side of the case and put a big fan set on high aimed right at the video card. The video card only got down to 60C at idle and that's with the video card fan at 100% also. But the load temps were in the high 70's.

How do you guys get these cards idling in the 50's? :crosseye: I'm not sure what my case temps are though. Speedfan is showing it in the negatives like it's not reading it.

thats freakin weird. mine idles so cool! must be a batch that doesn't have the heatsinks mounted correctly!

Is there a way to get the fan to kick in to 100% ONLY when a game is being played?

My 8800GTS is at around 42c Idle, low 50's tops under full load.

But what I did was take the cover off and slapped a case fan directly on the heat sink. And i also have a hole cut in the side of my case drawing the air out from the card (from before). Lowered my temps. I can't remember what they where before tho. But they did lower a bit.

not for the 8 series cards unfortunately :( you have to pick a specific percentage ...

I just saw in RivaTuner you can set the fan to auto-scale. But the card got up to 93 and the fan duty cycle never went to 100% :(

ya, on auto it will stay at 60% i think. i forced mine to a 100% with RT and left it there.

(IMO) that is still too hot. My card runs 52c at idle, and 67c (max) at full load. This is with the fan set at 100%.

Your card at idle is running hotter than mine at full load, something is wrong.

Is that on a 680i motherboard?

evga 8800GTX SLI on 680i idles @ 82 and 60 for me.

Case is TJ09 w/ 5 fans installed.

I wish there was just an option to have the fan run at 100% when games are launched (pb) Would make my life so much easier.. lol.

Nothing is wrong with those temps at all, I really hate it when users try and worry others about temps when there perfectly safe !

Mid 60's idle for this card is normal, 80-89C load is normal, anything below that and you probably have altered the fanspeed or have better airflow, ambient temps. I also don't understand how you guys can run the fan at 100%, when idle, its a bit loud ! (xmastong)

You would think this section of the RivaTuner would be the answer to my prayers but it doesn't do anything! (wack)
