Re: Operating Temperatures
Run at full load as with Prime95's Torture test to get a
full load reading. We can ignore the idle reading and focus
on full load which should stay under 70C or so, typically,
or +-5C or so for some specimens to remain stable. A
generic number to shoot for is under 60C. This temp applies
to the northbridge as well but the video card can run a
little hotter (though unless the GT version, it would
typically be running this cool too unless a passive heatsink
is on it and there isn't good case airflow.
