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 cards fully stressed we kept monitoring temperatures and noted down the peak (not average) GPU temperature.

  • Devil 13- The temperature under heavy game stress for the card stabilized at roughly 85 Degrees C. We list the highest temperature measured on either of the GPUs. We do have to note that you'll be very dependant on your PC system ambient temperature.


You will also notice that long term stressing does not result in down-clocking anymore. The dips in the chart are scene changes BTW. Please make sure your PC is extremely well ventilated at all times, this will help you on the overall GPU temperatures as the Devil 13 ditches extreme amounts of heat.
