Since video card temperatures and the heat generated by next-generation cards have become an area of concern among enthusiasts and gamers, we want to take a closer look at how the GeForce GT 240 series does at idle and under a full load.
EVGA GeForce GT 240 SuperClocked Idle Temperature:
At idle the EVGA GeForce GT 240 SuperClocked video card had a decent idle temperature of 34C. As you can see from the screen shot above, the idle state of the EVGA GeForce GT 240 drops the GPU frequency and memory down to just 135 MHz to help conserve power and lower temperatures.
EVGA GeForce GT 240 SuperClocked Load Temperature:
We fired up FurMark and ran the stability at 1280x1024, which was enough to put the GPU at 100% load in order to get the highest load temperature possible. This application also charted the temperature results so you can see how the temperature rises and levels off, which is very nice. The EVGA GeForce GT 240 SuperClocked video card maxed out at 73C. The fan on theEVGA GeForce GT 240 SuperClocked video card was left on auto during temperature testing and wasn't too loud.
