Hey all.

So I just upgraded my systems cooling and graphics card, the new cooling is great. My CPU idles at around 25c. Anyway..

I bought a ATI 5870 Vapour-X and replaced my GTX 260.. With the GTX 260 Speedfan would tell the temperature for it. But with the 5870, for some reason, it doesn't. I've also tried "Everest" and looked through the Catalyst Control Centre.

Is it possible to view the temperature, or not?

It's not that big a deal if I can't, but just out of curiosity and to compare it to the 260, would be nice.

Cheers

Used to own a 5870 not very long ago....only last week, in fact. If I remember correctly my idle temps were in the mid/high 40s, load around low 80s.

I see.. I got the Antec 902.. It's working great.. Except the Big 200mm fan on top Fan control is missing, which is rather a pain.
