Default 7600GS temperature

I have just installed a 7600GS card, and it runs rather hot (i.e. around 100
F) with very little video activity needed to push the temperature up to its
slowdown threshold (i.e. 125 F). Is this normal or could there be a problem
with the card?

I have already moved all of my other cards well out of the way to make sure
they don't obstruct the airflow, but this helped only a little.

Default 7600GS temperature

100 F or 100 C? 100 F is only about 38 C, fairly cool.

The shutdown threshold is 125 C for sure.

Default 7600GS temperature

Sorry. My mistake. All temperatures are C (not F).

My card runs at 100C ambient, and rises to the slowdown threshold of 120C
with only light use. Is this normal?

Mine is running 40C with some light load (HTPC). Have you considered
getting a little better case ventilation? Maybe cleaning the dust off
the heat sinks and making sure there's good airflow around the card?

Operating with the side of the computer case open makes no discernable
difference. Adjusting the position of the card to maximise airflow made a
small improvement. It seems that 97-100C is the best I can do.

If it's any help, the card is the PNY Technologies sold by PCWorld.

Either your reported temperature is incorrect or the GPU heatsink/fan is not
working correctly.

Let's start with some clarification:

What is the ambient ROOM temperature in degrees C?

What is the CPU temperature? How is it reported? What CPU do you have?

What is the reported GPU temperature when not under load?

Does your GPU heatsink HAVE a fan?

Default 7600GS temperature

I am running a 7600gt and the idle temp is 48c so there is something wrong
with either you card cooler or
the temp reading software. My room temp is about 74 F.
It could also be a faulty temp sensor, very rare or the heatsink is loose.

Either your reported temperature is incorrect or the GPU heatsink/fan is

Let's start with some clarification:

What is the ambient ROOM temperature in degrees C?

What is the CPU temperature? How is it reported? What CPU do you have?

What is the reported GPU temperature when not under load?

Does your GPU heatsink HAVE a fan?

Phil Weldon


GPU is PNY GeForce 7600GS AGP 256MB.
Ambient room temperature 23C.
Reported CPU temperature 69-71C. Reported in BIOS setup. CPU is AMD Athlon
XP 2800+.
Reported GPU temperature (not under load) 97-100C. Reported by nVidia
control panel software.
GPU heatsink does have a fan. The fan is rotating and blowing air. There is
no obstruction to this airflow.

Default 7600GS temperature

It is beginning to look as if there is something faulty with the GPU card,
so armed with all this information I will contact PCWorld (where I bought
the card) to check what they say.

Something is faulty. Consider requesting a replacement from the vendor.
Again do you get any temperatures from the BIOS?
It does seem that your CPU temperatures are high; is the 69 to71 C CPU
temperature reported under load, under 100% load, idle?
Have you measured the temperature of the air entering the GPU heatsink?
