Hey,
I have just ordered a MSI GTX 460 HAWK. Obviously this card has LOTS of overclocking potential. BUt what is the safe temperture for this card? The fan changes speed by itself by the way. And what's the best programme to use to stress test it. I will be using MSI Afterburner to Overclock it but how should I stress test it and for how long so I know it's stable?

Thanks,
--Harvey

I think the temps at this card are between 25-50C(idle-load) depending on what else you have inside your case and how well the air flows. It is known as one of the coolest 460 card. A very nice video card i must say.

Thanks for the reply :)
I'm going to be overclocking it so at what temperture should I stop at? I'll be running furmark to stress test it. Is that safe max temperture 62c?
