What is the max temperature for GPU's and CPU's that is considered a safe level? I was playing teamfortress 2, and i had SpeedFan running in the background. When i checked the temperatures, it said my core Temperature was 53C and had a little flame symbol next to it. My CPU was staying at a steady 25C. Im guessing my core temperature is the temperature of the videocard? Here are the readouts from speedfan after i installed my second videocard: Here are the readouts. System: 23C CPU: 25C AUX:34C HD0:17C Temp1:25C Core:27C Core:46C <-- 8600GT Ambient:0C I used rivatuner to reduce the OC on both my videocards to minimum, and also increased fan speed to 100%. Now, while watching Orthos, the only thing that rises in temperature is the AUX which goes up to 54C. everything else stays relatively steady in temperature. it wont be final till tomorrow, but does that sound about right while its going?
