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 Avalanche Demo
  • 15 minute load duration
  • 20 minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

Lower = Better

 

At stock settings, both the HD5830 Xtreme and HD5850 Xtreme were two of the coolest cards. Once you cranked up the clock speeds, the stock cooling solution was not intended for the extra heat that is generated.
