It should be increased as the workload on the GPU and hence the temperature increases ! You can check by leaving the Rivatuner monitoring graphs ON and playing the game, after quitting, you can take your mouse pointer on the graph to show the speed or duty (in percent) at which the fan was running during gaming.1. if it stays at auto then will the speed be increased automatically while gaming??
No damage will be done for sure, although life expectancy may be reduced, better to just stay a little off the 100 mark, say 80 >?2. If i increase fan speed to 100% then will it shorten the life of fan or damage it??
As answered earlier by A.Rafay, 80 degrees !3. What are the safe temps of this card? specially during summer.
This means that there is a bottleneck. The GPU is still capable of more but the Processing is not fast enough, thus the GPU is being limited ..the problem im getting is i get exatcly 90 fps on cod4 when all settings r high 1440x900 and it remains the same if the settings are low
Although no need to worry much, this is normal for multi-GPU setups. You can overclock your processor and the FPS should increase, or you can inrease resolutions and AA, AF, to get much better graphics...
Did you try another driver version ? And did you check with other utilities, like RivaTuner or GPU-Z ...further more the catalyst softwars says my one gpu is disabaled ...
i need help as how to turn the other one on
^ As ragingflares said, you should definitely try 3dmark and then compare with the scores of other 4870X2 users, this will tell whether the two GPUs are enabled and active or not...so don't worry, run some benchmarks such as 3dmark vantage to check if both of ur cards are being utilized or not.
Right Click My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Uncheck Automatically Restartplus if i open a few things at once my pc restarts
Then if you get a Blue Screen next time, check which file is causing problem..
If the computer restarts without showing any Blue Screen after unchecking this option, then it is indeed a power issue.
And according to this review done by Xbitlabs the 4870 X2 doesnt utilize more than 280 Watts ..
And according to this review, the whole system took 426 Watts when the GPU was fully loaded !
So my bet is, its not the PSU, or the PSU is faulty ....
The 650W Corsair PSU should easily be able to handle your system specs ...
I dont know if that's the case or not, but I personally think everyone should be allowed to participate, plus we will find more potential gurus this wayedit, apologies to the mods, in the condition that if only the official hardware guru's here are allowed to respond on this particular thread, if that's the case please delete my post
