NVidia GeForce 8800GS GPU Over-heating! - 72c On Idle

Look at Starcraft. I waited for the GPU to cool back to 49 (about 12 minutes this time) I ran Civ V in DX9 with all lowest settings, including no shadows in windowed screen this will limit the refresh to that of the monitor (60/75 Hz on most LCD monitors). Or am I just a noob? have a peek here

LDiCesare09-25-2010, 12:05 AMOk I switched from DX10/11 to DX9. Also ambient temperature within the case is important. Is that bad? Sound Tab 4: No problems found.

I played a bit more and eventually the computer shutdown before reaching turn 100.

Really any frame rates higher than your monitor's maximum refresh rate is wasted regardless.

Is that bad? 60-63C should be ok. I see you have 2 blowing out and then the GPU and CPU blowing on those cards, but without a fan forcing cool air in from outside the case you are ATI/nVidia/Intel/Other If it is an ATI, then you access the fan speed controller via the 'ATI Overdrive' menu in the ATI's Catalyst Control Center. But people have reported all sorts of "normal" temps so it's hard to say what it should be.

It has done this to me 4 or 5 times so far. The room i have my PC in is not humid, nor does my PC ever come into contact with smoke. Relandi05-28-2010, 01:05 AMThis game kicks my GPU fan to 100% within seconds of loading the game (similar happened to me with MO) and my temperatures will reach around low 90's too https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/451229/one-card-overheating-in-sli-9800gtx-/ Do you have a manual fan profile set, and if not, have you tried ramping the fan to 85-100% and redoing everything?

And also to say that I have a Freshly loaded PC (XP Home) with newest drivers as of 06/19/09 available for my Graphics, chipset, sound... The 8800GT max is 105C, so I would guess the GTS is the same or close. Anyone else having these problems?? Even with the Vsync on, I still think there is uncapped FPS.

There is still something wrong with the game, and should hopefully be patched soon. http://newwikipost.org/topic/p1YNQbpYbZRiJwpGMURcwGxJi9hGJrNb/Computer-shuts-down-when-idle-no-heating-issues.html Maybe the heat level they need to kick in the fan to 100% is greater than 75C? Originally Posted by Avenette Noise doesn't ramp up too much, but the air blowing out of the vent directly against the card increases dramatically. and why are people blaming the devs?

I don't know why it's just Civ 5 causing this.. http://gamesversion.com/nvidia-geforce/nvidia-geforce-gt-240-vs-gt-220.php rrhal09-23-2010, 12:34 PMI have an 8800 GT and according to CPU-Z I'm hitting 82 C and staying there. This brings my idle temps in WoW down to 55C and my highest temps around 85C with no crashing. My card is an EVGA (nVidia) 8800GTS (640MB).

I'm not running in SLI, I have a single GTX 280 card and have noticed higher temps in Civ 5 than with any other game I have. The CPU may be getting warm as well, but they usually run cooler than a video card. I turned it off and back on, now it is back to the way it was before - 30C idle on desktop, 70C idle in WoW, 85C+ in Ashran.

ATI/nVidia/Intel/Other If it is an ATI, then you access the fan speed controller via the 'ATI Overdrive' menu in the ATI's Catalyst Control Center. Well it ran fine as in heat didn't crash once, but there were lots of black tiles in the game that would disperse if you zoomed right in? I rolled the driver back to 353.62.

Thank you!

All rights reserved. CPU needed a dusting). If you are cranking it up to 100% with little to no change in temp a faulty fan may be the culprit. Try older drivers (yikes!) I'm not a techie so I don't know how true the above are.

And also to say that I have a Freshly loaded PC (XP Home) with newest drivers as of 06/19/09 available for my Graphics, chipset, sound... With this game, it seems the opposite. I finally found a day (yes day) to play through Campaign with breaks here and there but never once exited the game. this contact form Discussion in 'Hardware' started by lightning89, Aug 17, 2009.

What was concerning more so was the FAN SPEED remained the same, despite a dramatic jump in the activity. It also tends to run hot normally, 61C at idle, and Civ4 even drives it upto around 75C, but after 10min of playing DX10/11 Civ5 my temps are at 88C. Please, in your infinite wisdom, (which can be observed through your obviously well thought out and not pointless at all post) explain to me why my computer can easily handle Dawn Join over 733,556 other people just like you!

But after playing the game an hour or so, it went up to 60-63C. It would sometimes be at 50-60.Usually its 59.And I dont think thats good. Maybe try that and see what happens? First thing, the fog of war is way better on the eyes.

I've diagnosed my problem as heat related just because opening the case up fixes the crashing issue. What method did you use to apply TIM and what kind? I can give you the exact specs of the PC from my old purchase receipt, if that helps (and as I've said, I've since upgraded to windows 10): Processor 1 x Thanks in advance!! ^_^ NZXT Beta Case, Corsair TX750 PSU, EVGA X58 LE, Core i7 930 (2.8Ghz)+Thermaltake Frio [email protected] Corsair Dominator 6GB 1.6Ghz (8-8-8-24), BFG nVidia 8600GTS OC, Seagate Barracuda 7200.12

For example, my idle is 38C at default fan speed which is around 30'ish %. The PSU pushes all heat out of case so heat from PSU don't even contribute as the cool air is pulled from bottom of PC and pushed out the back. Many many moons ago I played WoW for 3 years. 1 particular Florida summer my machine kept powering down due to overheating. I have not abused them, no overclocking, and i never leave my pc running when i am not using it.

It's not a spec issue. I was ok for the first 3 hours as well, but now im at year 1704, and its like I need to keep an ingame fire dept on standby. Is that something I should worry about? If that doesn't work then the GPU may be going bad.

Example, Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl requires a minimum of 1GB of RAM, however, from experiences (particularly with ATI Graphics) 1GB of RAM causes the computer to shut down, upping to 2GB
