Re: What is normal temps for GTX 260?
The idle temp is @ 35~36 C
Full load temp during playing GTA IV is 56 C max.
The case has 2 exhaust fans (top and rear both 120mm) plus the exhaust fan of the PSU, 2 fans inhaling air (side and front both 120mm). I recently added an extra bottom fan (80mm) and the max temp dropped to 52~53 C.
Case temp is 27 C, HDD temp is 29 C, CPU temp is 31 C. Room temp is 24 C. (I installed an Aerocool Gatewatch, displaying the above temps and controlling fan speed).
