Hi....This may be considered a follow up to my previous thread....but i wonder how a hot can a GPU get....in my case a GTX 295....i contacted my vendor and their support told me to get temp readings while running furmark tool.....i ran it for 5 min and by the 3 min mark or so the temp reading went up to 103 C....

An user pointed out it was too hot in my previous thread.....i need your opinions.....

My 8800GT ussualy stays between 85 and 90 deg C under load.
In Furmark burn-in test I reached 99-101, though.

Check what is the temperature threshold for your card in the nVidia Control Panel. If it's higher than 110, I wouldn't worry.

My record: 113 Celcius with a 8600GTS Passive Cooling. Got quite worried.

I believe NVidia max safe is 147, but I would get quite worried if you even reached that.

Currently my gts250 goes to perfectly 80 under full load. (furmark burning mode)
