Stock 4870 overclocked with the reference cooler. Loud as a jet turbine and 95 degrees C plus! Good times.
Since then I've been trying to keep things both cooler and quieter.

That 4870 worked wonderfully as a space heater.

95c or so on a 4850 forgot the fan at 30% .
sapphire 4850 on stock cooling 114ºC fan@100%
bought accelero s1 with turbo module and cool down to 60ºC
after that it was crunching f@h gpu client for 4 months 24/7 then it died.
Yeah, the 4850 reference that I had idled at around 75° and would reach the high 90's on load.

I guess it happens more often than I thought. I get nevous when my temps get around 80°.

Thanks to the mod that fixed my 's.....;)

on my old 8800 I noticed the system was too quiet and i checked the temps then i once noticed the temps were over 125C on the gpu but they didn't move, the thermal sensor stopped working after that point so it was higher than that, I shut down . . . . . . prayed . . . . . . . no reboot . . . . . . . . .card got murdered.

I have never had any problem with a 6850 my brother has them and they hover around at about 82C on load.

last time my 9600GT goes to 143C
because I forgot to plug the fan,
when gaming i smell something like burning, and then I check my GPUZ it shows 143C

I immediately shuts the computer down, open up the case and the heat can be felt from outside..
I turn on a desk fan to the case to help the GPU to cool down,
when it was cool enough, I take out the GPU and check for damage,
and luckily no damage is seen, and I try to plug it in again, with the fan plugged.

now it never reached 70C in game, I must be so lucky back then

Hot enough to get artifacts and have a dead 7800 gtx,x1800xt and 8800 gt.

I hope the industry switches back to software rendering because ive never had a cpu fry from running too hot.

If your cpu is running too hot ur pc will just shut off.

If your gpu is running too hot the pc wont shut down but the gpu will fry.

This is proof hardware rendering sucks balls compared to software rendering.

50°C on my GTX 470, and that was only because the cooling hose was slightly kinked. Well, maybe that doesn't qualify for this thread.

On older cards like the 2900XT about 97c then the driver would restart and the 4890 only reached about 80c but the vrms would get about 100c.

Now with my current 6970 i think 45-55c all though one senser says about 25c higher :| and yes thought about re-seating it and for the vrms on it around 40-50c all under load.
