STEPed Skyrim and gpu temps





I run Skyrim - modded with STEP and some more - on my PC:


Intel Core 2 Duo E8400@3.00

4 Gb RAM (2x2)

MSI GTX 560ti TwinFrozr II OC


I`m getting to 76 degrees C for my gpu in a few seconds after I load a outdoor location. I Just super cleaned my PC and now it`s clean as new. I didn`t yet tested more thouroughly, just a few mminutes outdoor and get this temp. I have my reasons to believe my card could be problematic. For example, with MSI`s Kombustor, I get to 96 degrees C in 6 minutes. When I stop it, temp suddenly goes down to 70 and then slowly goes to around 38 in about 20 seconds after witch stabilizes to about 34-35 degrees.


My question is, for this gpu, what would be expected temps and highest temp acceptable in Skyrim modded with STEP (if this has anything to do with temps)?


Thank you!

96c is definitely riding the line of what's considered safe for the 560, but I wouldn't consider that strange for modded Skyrim, especially if your ambient temperature is high. You can always modify your fan curves/speeds to try to get the card cooler, but that will result in more noise. The maximum temperature listed for the 560 on nVidia's site is 99c.
