what temp should i start to worry about my 6600gt evga?
Mine wont get any hotter than 90C but target range would be 55-80C( I have two 6800 GTs)
anything over 120C on your vga core start panicing
Anything under that, dont panic.
how graphics cards can be so much hotter than regular cpu's?
Put a CPU cooler that is 10 times bigger on the video card GPU and it will run a lot cooler.
its just at 58under full load and 51 without i was just worried b/c i thought the core would be about the same as the cpu and isn't it corrrect that one does not want their cpu over 60c?
VGA chips are baked at 300C and then put into operation repeatedly in a cycle. I thik there was an article at anandtech or THG about it.
GPU's run hotter and are safer hotter than cpu's, by design. I mean if you had to paint 400 portraits a second, you'd be pretty hot too I suspect
yeah, graphics cores are quite different than cpu cores. i don't know the technical names of the two types, but the graphics cores can operate under more extreme heat. cpu cores are quite a bit more complex--they can do just about anything but have lower heat tolerances.
