temp for the xfx 6800gt??

i have just got a new xfx 6800gt and it's running at 54c my fx 5950ultra was ok at 40c going up to 55c when playing games so what temp is the 6800gt going to be then!!! one of these baby has all rdy gone on me i don't think komplett would give me anythere new one. it seems a big jump up in temp from the fx5950ultra to the 6800gt seeing that it's only the next card up
and befor any one says yes i have got good cooling as i said the fx5950 only got to 55c playing games then fell back to 40c do any one know the max temp of this card??

Doesn't sound too bad - from memory, the drivers don't start throttling the card until the GPU hits about 120C.

Be careful with those Qtec PSU's! Sounds like it might be overloaded already!!!

People have had stable temps up to 80 degrees on their 6800s. they run hot and are happy to do so.
Keep in mind that temps reported are random and nowhere near accurate as well. changing from 67.03 drivers to 71.80 drivers for example will result in a 30 degree (celcius) increase in idle temp in the driver but no physical change in temp measured off the card.

By the way, there have just been the 75.90 forceware drivers released, i cant download exes on this machine so could one of you guys please get them and upload them to AOAfiles.
ive benched them and have some very good results and impressions that ill post once they are uploaded. and if you download them from you know where, please extract them, replace the you know what splash screen with teh proper nvidia one, and recompress them as zip files before uploading

As far as I'm aware, the thermal sensor consists of a diode in the GPU core. As such, it should respond in a similar fashion to the thermal sensor diode on a CPU core.

It could be that the drivers you've been using have had different calibration constants for the thermal sensor. Either way, the temperature delta should remain constant, even if the calibration data changes.

Absolutely correct, its a calibration issue. That said... nvidia refuses to take responsibility for the way out of wack probe calibration in their drivers, instead pointing out that any calibration issues are the fault of the manufacturer in a very vague kind of way.
If one driver is correct, and another driver isnt, and the only thing that has changed is the driver, then its a driver calibration error quite obviously, but getting them to fix it is another issue. it effects, 71.25,71.40,71.50,71.65,71.80,71.81,75.90 drivers and to date has not been fixed.
THAT SAID..... there is a fix for it. if you overclock your 2D clock speed in coolbits or rivatuner, by about 1mhz, then it is fixed. explain that one

Well, nVidia don't provide support to the end user, so that's understandable.
