i'd like to know what kind of temps to expect from a normally working card.
What are your temps on idle (normal room temp 20c-30c)
and what are the max temp it reaches when say we run the ati tool graphical view. (Just for reference - when idle, ATI Tool reports 65c on my card, and after running the 3d view of ati tool the card will reach 104c).
I'd like everyone who has that info to post it here and i'll do the math and calculate the avarage working temp of that card.
Since different monitoring progs report different tempratures please state which program is reporting the temps.
looking to push my overclock past 700mhz now since my gpu is going to be getting a custom fan and copper heatsink. Whilst experimenting I found that past 700 the temperature no longer matters, the voltage simply isn't high enough. But I don't know of any software way to change this... Anyway I can get it above the 1.32V for the gpu? looking at maybe 1.38-1.4. Besides that if temperature even became an issue I'd experiment with liquid nitrogen, which being a chem student I can get pretty easily . It's a lot of fun to play with.
I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a 1710 within the next week or so. Yeah, I know the 1730 is coming out but I really can't wait much longer and besides, the 1730 is by far one of the biggest and ugliest models I have seen Dell come out with. Sorry for that little rant but anyway, back to the main question:
There is a $350 price difference between the 7900 GS and the 7950. I have searched the forums and found a couple of relavant threads but I wanted some people who own both of these models to readdress this issue and let me know if you like the model you have or do you wish you would have gone with a different GPU.
can some 1 tell me wts the temperature for the M1710 with 512 MB 7950 GTX please ,,cause i just upgrade to it and i dont now whts gonna be and please tell me which program (am using 2 programs I8KfanGUI and NVTemplogger)
I'm just about to pull my dead 7950 GTX and send it off for repair ... they say they found the problem with this card failing and have a unique fix so we'll see. They are on Ebay if intersted.
Anyhow, I would like to replace all the thermal pads with a good thermal compound ... I was looking at IC7 synthetic diamond.
I am more than capable just never done this with my XPS M1710 so I need a guide. Question is, can all of the thermal pads be removed and replaced with IC7 or is the 1/32" gap between the memory and heatsink too much? I have read that you can fill this gap with pure copper shims but haven't found any details.
I have Inspiron 9400 with 7900Gs card. I have 9 cell battery. I have ordered 7950GTX, 4GB of DDR2 and also 130W power pack. Is there anything I need to install and use this card? I had a look thru the forum but I couldnt find any information how to instal this paticular card and what sor of BIOS will I need for the card and the laptop.
I have xps m1710 with 512mb 7950 gtx,2 gb ram,2.33 core due
I have some strange picture coming in my lcd some times,so can u tell me if my video card on the way to die,
also it happend a few times with Ghost recon advanced warfigter 2 during the game but if I press Alt+Esc to go to the windows thats strange picture dissapers and then I can go back to the game,its allways happen with the game but only 1 time with my windows,I reinstalled my windows and changed the driver version and still happining
My nVidia Geforce Go 7950 GTX burned out about a month ago and I have been running it in VGA mode here in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
Because I knew that Dell did not have support in this country I didn't contact support until last Friday, April 10, 2009. I had bought a full 4 year warranty when I bought the machine and the warranty expires in Sept 2011.
Dell agreed to replace the GPU under warranty, but said that they could only ship it to somewhere in the States, so I had them ship it to my office in Washington, D.C. and the package is now on its way to Dushanbe by DHL. I'll go inside and change the GPU myself, which, though, I'm not very handy with tools, I think I can do. I have the service manual and have reviewed the procedures and many of the very helpful posts on this site.
My question is that Dell Support is sending both the GPU and a new motherboard in case I need the latter. How do I know whether I need the latter, and should I just replace the motherboard even though the existing one seems to be running fine?
Dell shipped the parts to me on Sunday April 12 and they were received in my office in Washington on April 14. The invoice listed the total price for the GPU and motherboard at $1171.24, which apparently must be paid if I don't send the defective parts to them within 10 days.
Because I'm in Tajikistan Dell Support got a waiver of the 10 day deadline for return. I might just hang on to everything until I'm back in the States in October 2009.
I haven't put in my 7950 gtx yet because when I threw the one in that I had here it was DOA so I had to send back to the seller to replace, so the new one should be here in a week. Anyways here is the deal . .
Everyone is claiming since the 7900 GSX pulls such great scores in 3dmark05 (simular to the 7950) it is about the same. Here is the difference. When yall run 3dmark it defaults to a low resolution test. So here is an example. Im pulling low 9k with my 7900 GSX at default resolution. So I got a full version serial number for 3dmark05 and switched the resolution to 1440x900 and ran the tests with that. This should really show the memory difference and power of the better card.
The 7900GSX pulled 4262 at that resolution.
From what im finding online the 7950GTX at 1440x900 resolution pulls around 6700 at that resolution . If you have a 7950GTX test it out and post that instead.
Im sure at 1920x1200 resolution the differences would become even more apparant. So there is the final answer.
High resolution gaming (native resolution on our lappys) will show a big difference.
I have a 1710 thats a couple weeks old and I have a problem. As of right whenever I install drivers other than the dell drivers for my 7950GTX and am running on battery the screen breaks up into a bunch of vertical tears. So far I have used both the Laptop Video 2 Go drivers with the tweaked INF and Geforce Tony's recommended drivers and as soon as I unplug the power I get this problem. But like I said, if I uninstall those drivers and load the current drivers from Dell.com everything works great.
I recently just purchased and received a fancy Dell e6400 from one of the many dell deals. My eyes are light sensitive from looking at many computer screens over the years and due to this I avoid LCD screens and much prefer flat CRT monitors. My goal is to use the e6400 as my workstation computer while using the VGA out to power my 19in Sony CRT .....
i dissasembled my presario cq60 and when i put it together the monitor won't activate.
i tried using an external monitor and the monitor refused to turn on from standby, a safety feature of the monitor. the small card in the underneath with 2 wires leading 2 the monitor, (i assume that is the laptop version of a graphics card) is fine, inserted properly, and i had a slight issue with the plugs fitting, but that was soon resolved.
i usually leave my laptop on my desk, which is about 6 in. away from the window. lately, gpu temp has hit a low of 32 c, core temps of 16 c. i need to know if this is a dangerously low temperature to operate the computer. if i should move the desk or laptop or what.
I have an HP DV 6000T. I just bought a HP Elite M9510f Desktop from HP.com, and I don't have a monitor yet, so I am trying to connect my Desktop VGA to my Laptop VGA in and use my DV6000T as a monitor.
I also have a Sharp TV which I tried using as a monitor but the thing keeps flashing the Power and OPC lights and won't let me see anything.
Anyway I can make my Laptop monitor work with my desktop for the time being?
I've owned my M1330 for a few months now, and have been very happy with it. But today, all of the sudden, things changed. I understand that a fan speeds up when a laptop gets hot, but this is not the case here.
All of the sudden today, this started happening: The fan is always on (around 3000rpm). However, the temperatures are usually low (CPU:38-50 , GPU:47-49). The laptop doesn't even get hot.
I've already cleaned the dust out of the the fans/vents, just in case.
I recently purchased a M170 with 6800 Ultra off ebay and have been using it for the past week or so. During this time, I have noticed that the temps get quite high when running graphic intensive applications. I currently have an e1705 with a 7900GTX installed so I am familiar with the heat dissipated from a high end graphics card but the M170 seems to get very hot in comparison to my e1705. I am not sure what are considered high temps so I will just post my readings from I8kfan (these are the peak temps):
Well people in my country is summer, and from some days (4-5 days) my Studio 1535 has annoying for me HDD and GPU temperatures.
I will attach old picture and current picture and you can compare the temperatures. Plus the fan stays on higher speed and it just don't want to turn itself back to normal light speed mode, I guess because high HDD and GPU temperatures.
