Graphics card temperatures

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.

  • Radeon RX 470 MSI GAMING X - The temperature under heavy game stress for the card stabilized at a maximum of roughly 66 Degrees C in. 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. 

Below, a temp plot under long term stress. ALSO please have a peek, this card runs at 1242 MHz, we've seen competition boards down-clocking continuously in the 1100~1150 MHz range. This MSI card sticks nicely at its advertised speed. Nice to see, and that is going to help in overall performance alright.
