HIS 7750 iCooler Temperatures

Benchmark tests are always nice, so long as you care about comparing one product to another. But when you're an overclocker, gamer, or merely a PC hardware enthusiast who likes to tweak things on occasion, there's no substitute for good information. Benchmark Reviews has a very popular guide written on Overclocking Video Cards, which gives detailed instruction on how to tweak a graphics cards for better performance. Of course, not every video card has overclocking head room. Some products run so hot that they can't suffer any higher temperatures than they already do. This is why we measure the operating temperature of the video card products we test.

To begin my testing, I use GPU-Z to measure the temperature at idle as reported by the GPU. Next I use FurMark's "Torture Test" to generate maximum thermal load and record GPU temperatures at high-power 3D mode. The ambient room temperature remained at a stable 22°C throughout testing. FurMark does two things extremely well: drive the thermal output of any graphics processor higher than applications of video games realistically could, and it does so with consistency every time. Furmark works great for testing the stability of a GPU as the temperature rises to the highest possible output. The temperatures discussed below are absolute maximum values, and not representative of real-world performance.

As previously stated my ambient temperature remained at a stable 22°C throughout the testing procedure, the cooler is very efficient and a heavy load from FurMark raises the temperature from 29°C (39% fan speed) idle, to 59°C load with an automatic fan speed of 41%. Putting the fan on manual and cranking it up to 100% saw the temperature drop to 44°C and the fan didn't seem to make any extra noise, remaining virtually silent while giving us a very impressive 15°C reduction in load temperature.

In the next section we will look at power consumption figures, let's go.

I know this is not a top end card but just 71w at full chat. wow!

A neat and clean very nice looking card. but i wished it should had some more stream processors but any way .. temperature and power figures are really awesome maaaaaannnn !!!

Your specs on the 550ti are wrong has the same amount cores as a 450 and not 256bit bus
