    Anyone know where the 9800 SE/Pro/XT Core temp should be around
    i have a temp meter and when i place the little sensor between the gpu heatsink and the gpu processor it gives me a temp of 65*C, this seems like a LOT...that was with the case open and all i did was boot up the cpu
    cpu and mobo run very cool however (see sig)

    hmm
    im thinking i had the sensor in tooooo far between the heat sink and the gpu core..i placed it inbetween the two from the side now and im getting a reading of 41.5*C which sounds resonable so i guess its all good

    not sure what the operating temps will be but I have seen some people running their gpu's @ around the 70C mark and higher...

    not something I would recommend... just saying it has been done :) so its likely the pcb can handle higher temps...

    Some person posted this on another site. They have a 9800:

    Maybe you can use these as a guide?
