Hi there everyone,

After failing to be able to communicate directly with Asus on several occasions... I thought I would just ask this question on the GeeksToGo Forum!

I just built my own gaming PC and I purchased an "ASUS ENGTX570 DCII Video Card" (Or for short: "Asus Nvidia GTX 570")

If you want to see the graphics card for yourself, here is a direct link: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814121432

With that, I am using the program SpeedFan to monitor my computer temperatures, and while gaming in Battlefield 3 on Ultra graphic settings my graphics card is running at around 50 - 56 degrees Celsius.

So.. My question is: Is this an appropriate or SAFE temperature for this graphics card while gaming?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much in advance,

Basmastersix

For that card, it is very good temps. Many gamers report temps of 80 to 90, not the best, but they still seem to keep going, would probable shorten the life of the card.

If it reaches about 97C it should throttle back.

I agree. It is normal for GPUs to run quite a bit warmer than CPUs and as mykyl noted, those are actually very good temps.

You are welcome. Now it is up to you to perform regular inspections (I recommend monthly) and clean out the heat trapping dust as necessary to keep your temps in check.

Remember, it is the case's responsibility to provide adequate front-to-back flow of cool air through the case. Also, the ambient (room) temperature is a key player in proper cooling too.
