    Hi



    I know this may ridiculous question, but really make me confused


    MSI Afterburner showing GPU Temperature, but what about memory clock Temperature

    Photo


    I am worry if that program read GPU Temperature only

    Thank you very much

    It probably just can't read the memory temp sensor on your card (if it's even got one) don't worry about it :)
    Mohammed says thanks.

    there is no sensor for memory temperature. not on any card
    Mohammed says thanks.

    What makes you think you need to check the "memory clock temperature" on the GPU?
    Mohammed says thanks.

    The reason make me ask this question is I am sometime overclock memory too much

    For example I overclock my BFG GT 220

    GPU from 625MHz to 800MHz

    memory clock from 400 to 650MHz


    [​IMG]

    now, I have no problem with GPU Temperature.
    It's around 49 -59c , So I can Monitoring GPU where I can decide if there a problem or not

    but I don't know what about memory.


    The wisdom says (I don't know how to explain it in English )
    "" Prevention is better than cure""




    Anyway, so there is no way to know memory clock Temperature ! :(


    This mean I have to buy Memory Cooler Cooling

    Correct - I've not see a sensor come on standard graphics cards.
    It's unlikely the temperature for the memory should ever be an issue - despite that you can buy the heatsinks for them.

    It's similar to a motherboards MOSFETS. They don't NEED heatsinks/coolers - bit gimmicky.

    If your core/die temperature on the GPU is fine, then you are fine.
    If you overclock your memory and it's stable, then it will survive - especially if you haven't changed voltage.
    Mohammed says thanks.
