GTX 285 96C in Furmark okey ?
Got my GTX 285 the other day and get 96C under Max stress test in Furmark and wondering am I gonna fry my card as it seems way to much ?

I know it stresses it the most out there and when I game it's at 86C the most what I have seen and that wont be a problem I hope :)

I think that's barely on the limit. Try to put a fan on the front of the card blowing towards the back of the card. That will bring down the temps substiantially...

According to comments furmark is to extreme and no game will ever torture your card like that... so nothing to worry about , just don't play furmark all day :D


“In our lab tests we have discovered that when running Furmark to test for temperature, it tends to show results that would never be achieved in any circumstances (under normal running or overclocking). Running Furmark is highly risky therefore we do not recommend running this program for tests. This program pushes the VGA card to the point of maxing out, beyond limit and will burn out any cooler, stock or after market coolers after long period of testing. Even running games such as Far Cry 2 and GTA 4 extensively for long hours, the temperatures would never reach what Furmark’s excruciating tests put out.
Furthermore, it is crucial to have a 12cm fan installed running at 1600 RPM. This will ensure enough airflow to not only the HR-03 GTX heatsink body but also to the VRM heatsink plate. If you would like to run software to test for heatsink’s
temperature stability, we strongly recommend ATI Tools.

Watch it now, you might step in the bull****...

Okey thanks guys and I will put a fan infront of my gfx card asap as I have a place right there in my Antec P182 case :)

Yeah Furmark is what Intelburntest seems to be for GPU and 86 was peak under full load in Warhead but safer to put a fan infront of my card.

BTW did forget to say that I have it O/C at Core 712 Shader 1620 Memory 1380 Mhz and it seems all good without any artifacting :D

What is your fan speed set at? That seems really hot unless the fan is at only 40%.

Re: GTX 285 96C in Furmark okey ?
The fan went up to 100% under full load so it seems very hot as you say and the card idels at around 45 - 50C

Re: GTX 285 96C in Furmark okey ?
Use EVGA precision and try the fan speed @ 60% then 70%. That's a very high temp. I don't usually break 70C with my overclocked GTX 260s after hours of AoC @ 1920x.

Re: GTX 285 96C in Furmark okey ?
The fan is running at 100% right know as I just started another maximum strestest in Furmark and it's at 90C direct oouch thats hot :D
Annyway whats the treashold for these 55nm cards ?
I know I read before that 105C was the threashold for the 65nm cards!

WFT, its up at 98C now..better stop the prog I think :S

Re: GTX 285 96C in Furmark okey ?
I ran Furmark three times back to back @ 1280x then 1920x. With 70% fan speed I hit 58C @ 1280x. @ 1920x I hit 65C. Silverstone TJ10 FTW :)

I run my cards @ 711|2300 with a 1500 shader clock.

Okey that sounds very low and nice :)
Starting to wondering if theres something wrong with my card.

Will test it now at default clock in Furmark. forgot to say that all test in Furmark is with the extreme burn test at 1920*1200 16AA!

Re: GTX 285 96C in Furmark okey ?
How long are you running the stress test? I'll be happy to try it @ 1920x with 16xAA.
