    Browsed through the forum, but I didn't see a good target temp to look for when OC'ing the cards.

    I've got a radeon x700 pro, and it's oc'd to 472.5 core, and 524.25.

    Temps spike to about 87 max.

    I adjusted the fan to kick in 100% at 85 degrees or higher.

    Does avg 87 degrees under load sound too high?

    What's a good temp to shoot for then?

    Ati tool targetted the max overclock settings....

    (Just double checked the temps, and I'm actually getting 78 gpu, and 51 environment.)

    still high, with stock cooler @ 100% gave me 62load. Enviroment was low 40s or something. My case temps are around 28-29. In the winter I hit 22c. Right now I'm on a Arctic Cooler Rev 2 heatsink with a 60MM fan attached. I hit 51.6c load in 28c case temp. I would aim for 60c, or even better 50. BTW this is a X800XT PE.

    up to 80° with the stock cooler is nothing you should worry about .. at around 90° you should start watching temperatures and at 100°+ you should really look into getting the temps down
