    Hey all,

    I've been running my system under full load for twenty minutes.

    I've got RMClock, CPU-Z and ATITool open to monitor, and I'm also using Orthos to stress my RAM and my CPU.

    Temperatures:

    LeadTek 7950GT TDH 256MB -- 90 degrees
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 2.4GHz -- 48 degrees [won't let me overclock yet, it's running at stock speeds with a Zalman heatsink].
    Transcend 1066 2 x 1GB -- 64 degrees

    These temperatures seem all right for twenty minutes of full load? I'm scrambling to find a VGA heatsink at a local store, but I've been told a graphics card of this power can safely handle temperatures of up to 100 degrees.

    Charles

    Well that's what I'm asking. I talked to someone yesterday who said that 90 degrees isn't an unreasonable temperature for twenty minutes of full load. It's obviously hot if you look at this subjectively, but compared to regular temperatures for this type of video card, how does it stack up?
