Default Temperature GT240

Just changed out old card for the PNY 240 and all seems well. Not into heavy
gaming except for FSX

According to nvidia inspector the card is idling at 53-57C , fan 35%.

Cant seem to come up with a definitive answer via google to determine if
this is normal? I haven't fired up FSX yet to see how much higher it goes
but I guess it will jump a bit more

I am running the card with two LCDs and vista 32bit

Thanks for any input
Bill

Perfectly normal depending on your ambient case temp and environment.
For reference, in a house that stays about 72-74F most of the year; my
old system with a 9800GTX+ idled at approx 55C; and the fan duty cycle
was rated at 40%. The 9800GTX was basically the same chip at the 240;
and clocked higher.

If it goes beyond 72-75C under load, then you might want to consider
rearranging your case for optimal air cooling, but otherwise don't worry.

Thanks for that appreciate the reply. Never used to bother with it till I
got the nvidia inspector. Sometimes too much info isnt good :-)
