Last night I had to put a fresh lick of thermal grease on my GPU heatsink, my temps at full load were hitting somewhere in the 80°C range. Afterwards they dropped to 66°C at full load. I just wanted to see what temps everyone else allows their card to run at. Name your card and cooler as well because I remember my 66OO GT would not tolerate any temp above 70°C. If you have an overclock give it in % above the original stock clock speed. Hopefully my grease has a good burn in period and temps should drop a few maybe to 62°C after another 150 hours or so.

My temps currently on my Sapphire X1900XTX with a Zalman cooler (can't remember the model)

66°C @ Full load

40°C @ Idle

Seems pretty warm kid, have you overclocked the cards or are they stock?

GPU temps can get much higher than CPU safely.  80 Load is not horrible at all, but yeah that's a little warmer than I like.  I once accidently disconnected by coller on a Radeon 3850 and I was playing CoD 4 maxed out and my GPU was at 100 C for several minutes.  No damage, no artifacts.  A few minutes more and I probably would have, certainly, as that is boiling.  I'm pretty sure most GPU's began being permanently damaged at 98 C.  That doesn't mean you should be happy with a 90 C GPU Temp, but anything less is acceptable because you're not gonna get damage at say 80C unless it's there for an outrageously long time.

My Radeon 4850 idles in the upper 30s and loads no higher than the 60s.
