So here we'll have a look at GPU temperatures. First up, IDLE (desktop) temperatures.


Overall anything below 50 Degrees C is considered okay, anything below 40 Degrees C is very nice and below 30 Degrees C  - CEWL. But what happens when we are gaming? We fire off an intense game-like application at the graphics card and measure the highest temperature of the GPU. 


So with the card fully stressed we kept monitoring temperatures and noted down the GPU temperature.

  • R7 260X HIS iCooler - The temperature under heavy game stress for the card stabilized at roughly 60 Degrees C. We note down the hottest GPU reading, not the average.

With today's graphics cards, please make sure your PC is well ventilated at all times, this will seriously help you on the overall GPU temperatures.
