Re: Gfx card overheating

Just thought id update this. This is what ive had back from the seller

" Hello Unfortunately the problem you have explained is not one to do with this particular graphics card, it is simply a trait ALL the 9800GX2 series have. Because they are two graphics chips in one card, they often reach temperatures above the usual of 80 degrees. Luckily, the 9800GX2 is a very unique card as it is specified to go up to temperatures of up to 100 degrees. I have used this card for 5 months, with no problems. It does get hot, but it is a VERY powerful graphics card, and outputs more heat than usual. Because of this, I do not believe the graphics card can be considered faulty. ALL the 9800GX2 cards behave this way and eBay will not consider this card damaged at all. Regards. "

I donno if this is true or not ? I have read that if a gfx card gets up to 100c / 105c it does damage ???

Over all it is possible.. I mean that is the number one complaint about that card.. it runs warm. .. how warm is too war? Heck if I know.. It's not in my..ah.. hot little hands.

So yeah.. it depends on the case.. if you care about potentially trashing it.. etc.. etc.. are you experiencing any shut downs or screen artifacts?

Well this thread is all over the place, but
  • Did you check for blown caps on the video card?
  • Make sure the cooling fans spin free and are not seezed up.

Ive checked for videos for sli but there are none maybe there is no one silly enough to sli them because it would of been a waste of money.


Really? No one? Not one site shows up with you put in "9800x2 SLI" in google's video search?

well i have 90 pound and just want a card that can play games the highest.

You need to be a bit more specific. Just look at your motherboards specs, see what it will run, then search for the fastest and bigest video card that you can stuff in there. And if that's not "highest" enough for you then start shopping for a new motherboard.
