my msi gtx780 lightning..

hey guys whenever i got my techpower gpu running to check temps of my "not" overclocked graphics card "yet" it reaches around like 50-60c when running games like assasins creed etc, is this normal with the card not being overclocked reaching them temps on a game with every graphics option on highest?

That is low, I got my lightning 780 today and coming from a reference R9 290 which hits 95c after a couple of minutes I am very happy with it.

Mine never went over 39C The joys of water.

Also, my mate went to Tenerife, so I went one better and went to Elevenerife

50-60c is incredibly good for air cooling. 64c max here, hoping to get it lower when i switch to a better case, (corsair 540). Sick to the teeth of this current shinobi.

Power limit is for when overclocking. It allows more power to be drawn from the PSU to run higher clocks.

Mine will hit 70c running firestrike at +120/+300 using a 1-1 custom fan profile. But thats in a case with virtually zero front air intake.

You wont be able to kill your card just like that. Nvidia has idiot-proofed their cards
