    Hi all.

    I am currently running an Opti 170 at 2.8Ghz on 1.325Volts
    Cooling it and my X1900XTX is the Swiftech Ultra with the Swiftech MCW60 VGA block. The Case is an Eclipse with 2 X Panaflow L1A fans.

    Room temps are 21-25C.

    What temps should I be seeing?

    Currently idle is 34-36, load is 42-46.

    Although not high, I thought the temps should be lower than they are?

    Any thoughts?

    Matt

    Those temps seem very reasonable.

    Back-of-the-envelope figures:

    2.8 Ghz Opty 170 @ default volts = 140 watts

    room temp = 24'c

    load temp = 44'c

    20/140 = .14 ' C/W

    Seems about right.
