Temperatures

As the Sapphire 5450 has a small, passive heatsink we were very curious to see the temperatures registered by the card. Until now most budget cards had a default cooling solution which normally included a fan with annoying noise/volume level. ATI and Sapphire are changing this and the temperatures of 50°C idle and 69°C load (Furmark stress test) are great for a passively cooled card. To put these into perspective, the GeForce 210 we used as a comparison has a fan/heatsink cooler and was only 3°C lower than the silent 5450 at load.
