I have recently upgraded to a radeon x800xl. It is installed in my tower with only the stock fan that comes on the card. What do you guys recommend for average temps and fan speeds????

I put it so when your above 60 or so your fans runs as a 100%. And the rest I assign accordinly. I have mine something like this...

30C above 50%
40C above 60%
45C above 70%
50C above 80%
55C above 90%
60C above 100%

Thats mine, can't say what they are exactly cause I am not home atm... :rolleyes: But the hottest my card gets is around 65C, so I have my card running a 100% fan speed when it hits 60C.

I leave mine on the bios default and it hits 76 max playing bf2, or on atitools 3d view. Which I have no probs with.

If you ask me people get too stressed about high temps, if the card plays your fav. game perfectly then what's the prob. Maybe it'll last a couple of extra years but it'll need upgrading by then anyway!

What are the speeds for bios default...thats one reason why this post got started in the first place. I reset some speeds and did not take note of the default ones cause of the reset feature....however, once you change the speeds you cant go back to the default settings

above fan %
0 43
70 54
75 67
80 80
85 96
90 100

but that's for my connect3d X800 pro vivo, I'm sure yours will be different.
