Testing:

Temperature testing will be accomplished by loading the video card to 100% using Crysis Warhead with MSI's Afterburner overclocking utility for temperature monitoring. I will be using a resolution of 1920x1200 using 8xAA. I will use a 10-run sequence to run the test, ensuring that the maximum thermal threshold is reached. The fan speed will be left in the control of the driver package and video card's BIOS for the stock load test, with the fan moved to 100% to see the best possible cooling scenario for the overclocked load test. The idle test will be a 20-minute cool down with the fan speeds left on automatic in the stock speed testing and bumped up to 100% when running the overclocked idle and load testing.

Settings

  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner
  • Crysis Warhead 1920x1200 8xAA

Lower = Better

As one of the warmest cards in the group, the HD 6770 FleX suffers a bit from a recirculation of warm air in the chassis. The small exhaust opening on the mounting plate and open shroud do impact overall cooling ability. Even so, the card was far from what I would consider hot, even when overclocked.
