O, we know that GPU temps tend to hit higher than CPU. Most of us have been doing this for a while you know Anyways, personally those seem high to me. Of course, as someone said, stock temperature monitors are not necessarily right (heck, frequently they're way off). The 7 series cards should run quite a bit cooler than the 6 series cards, and those sound like 6 series temps to me <shrugs>

yup, thats why usually touch the heatsink to get a better "feeling" for it.

also the overclock i had have worked great with several games and benchmarkig programs including atitool artifactscan but when the temp went up i started to get some artifacts so seems oblivion pushed the card harder than anything i used before.

also seen claims its a good program to check for artifacts due to the heavy use of gfx card.1

the most information i found sofar suggest 40-45 idle and 60-65 celsius max load to be normal temps but some cards like mine have higher.

but saw one interesting thing when i checked which gfx card the store has and they dont have any 7800gt so they must give me a 7900gt if its returned

if, they dont have any choice.

if the card is returned under warranty they are obligated to either give me a card with the same specs or better.

its one of those nice laws i have in my country

and if the card is sent away to be repaired and it takes 2weeks or more i can demand to borrow a card in that time or be compensated.

it is also possible the store will go for a refund and thats fine with me too as the 7900gt costs the same as i paid for the 7800gt.

this is something i can do even if only the fan breaks down.

e-mail them before you do it and say 'the fan on the graphics card i bought from you seems to have failed and the card has over heated, i have all the appropriate paperwork etc, what are my options in terms of an RMA?' and argue untill they offer what you want and/or act according on their response

eg, if they say 'we cannot offer this service as fan failure is not covered' then dont stick your finger in it lol

Someone correct me if im wrong, but, technicly, you screwed over your warrenty the second you took it over stock speeds. Ive just flicked through my leadtek warenty and your practicly not allowed to breather near the thing. Wich is quite odd as they provide overclocking software.

Also i am aware that its practicly impossible ot tell if an undamaged chip has been overclocked or not.

To me it sounds like you need to extract the air from around the cards HS. Having a fan blow air over it is all good, but not if that then warm air is just hanging around.

HAHA that is true with everything , Once you use a HS on a cpu besides the stock HS you have voided the warenty.

BAck on topic though, you should have no problems RMAing it if needed and getting a new card. You didnt flash the bios with a custom one, and most ocing with the card is done with software so there is no "real" way for them to tell it was oced at all.
