    Default GPU temps

    Hi guys

    I've recently started mining, and i'm currently running my gtx 780, until i can afford an r9 280x. I started out hitting a stable 51C when running the miner. It has now dropped to a stable 45C, and i do not get this. Load is exactly the same, OC the came, cooling runnning at exactly the same rpm's. It has been running non-stop for about 5 days now.

    so i'm kinda scared my gpu is starting to die on me?

    Eh, when ever I do prime test on cpus, my temps range from 60-70c easily, depending on the test, while remaining at 100% load. I think its just smaller packets run the temp up higher. Just a guess though.

    Nah its fine. Since you are running it constantly you gave the heatsink and fans time to catch up and stabilize temps. GPU/CPUs can heat up faster then the coolers can dissipate the heat. So during benching you are only looking at a snapshot of cooling capabilities not the long term cooling trend.

    The best answer.

    because Bitcoin mining is the closest you will ever get to running a consistent load. Gaming is all over the place and never for 5 days straight. Folding@home has dips and spikes. Normal pc usage is low.

    But running bitcoin mining it stays almost exactly the same the entire time. Reviews only measure the absolute maximum temp of any cooler at two stages. Idle and under Load. Never the over time cooling properties because of the examples I gave above. It has been unnecessary. If you look at a review for say gpu and they are using a line graph to represent temps over time you will see a huge spike when it is first under load. Say it goes from 35c(MIN) to 75c with a 10 secs of bench. That 75c is the highest it went.(MAX) But if you look after that spike you will see it drop down some to around 73c. Then 72c Then hang out there for a bit. If the load was steady and cooling was steady you would see it continue to fall to the point where the cooling can no longer drop the temps anymore more. There is a term for this point but I cant think of what it is called at the moment.

    So basically since the way we use our hardware is changing we may need to rethink how we test that hardware.

    pls help me understand guys. Why do i see a lot of people taking time testing their HW for days? I mean i've worked in a semiconductor company before and I've seen these components, especially the processor, underwent several tests already (burn-in, functional/parametric, extremely cold/hot temp while operating, etc.) in the fab before getting packed and shipped to different places.

    well i'm not doing this to test my HW, im doing it as more of a hobby and perhaps get a few extra bucks in my pocket (studying doesn't pay an awful lot )

    for days? I dont know about that. For a lot of us here we run test to verify our overclocks are stable. We test to check the limits of our customized cooling solutions. We run benches to see if we are getting the maximum performance out of the hardware we purchased. benchmarks and test to compare to other pieces of hardware. We are not testing the hardware for defects as your thinking that would have already taken place at the factory. As you hang around PureOC you will learn more about what and why we do what we do.

    Oh yeah I forgot one of the key reasons we run test and benches. Bragging rights! my sh*t is faster and better then your sh*t!

    We usually do not run our hardware as intended. We overclock everything that we can get away with and will always do so. That's why we test our results so often, and why we share the information with other, like-minded mooks.

    This holds especially true for the review staff: when we run hardware testing on the products we get in (depending on the item) we need to have consistently strong and stable settings that are known to be good sources of benchmark testing. Any other testing at stock isn't needed because either it will work right or it won't right out of the box. Anything else beyond that and yeah, you should do SOME testing... just not to the extent I see some people do it.

    for example: when I stress test my CPU after a newly minted overclock, I run two tests: one of OCCT small data set for an hour for temperatures (small data sets generate the highest temperatures), then an hour of Linpack testing to stress memory and the CPU at the same time to confirm total system stability. There will almost NEVER be an instance in which your cumputer is under that kind of simultaneous load for more than an hour unless you are mining... and even then pretty much all of the load required for mining is placed on your GPU(s), so there's that. These people that are testing their PC's for like, eight hours or more worth of stress testing are being a bit ridiculous: so you failed after ten hpours straight of linpack... no s*** you failed, your computer is running at max for TEN FLIPPIN HOURS in an officially unsupported spec range, what did you expect lol.

    Don't know is my sh*t faster then your sh*t, but mine is one hell of a fast sh*t.

    As everyone else already said it, we are stressing and benchmark ours sh*t to manage and see how maximum of the juice we can squeeze from our PC and still be a stable and fully functional sh*t.
