EVGA GTX 570 running over 80c to hot?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm pretty new to this. I just built my first comp and I am a bit concerned with the temp of my GPU. With EVGA precision its temp is 50c just surfing the web and what not. But when I play rift, it bumps a bit over 80-84c . The fan is set to auto which is around 40, and in game hits the 50s. Should I turn the fan up more?
At what point does the increase in fan speed damage the graphics card?

thanks

50% fan speed during gaming yielding 80-84C would not cause any BSOD but I think it is better to trade some 'dbA' for some 'C'.

I suggest you setup a fan profile, the most basic one being fan-speed-matching-temperature (ie 50%=50C, 60%=60C...etc). Keep in mind that the max speed that you can set is 80% unless you do some hacking. And, max fan speed cannot damage the card. It is just the noise that can be annoying.

set the fan speed to 75, the temp is now 65-67
that sound about right?

Yeah, that sounds a lot better. How is the airflow in your case?

yes...

if you want to improve temps... you can always apply better TIM to the heat-sink on the gpu.

My gpu's with ceramique idles in the low 30s and loads in the low 60s

Sounds like it is getting better. I would try to keep the temp under 80C max.

The GPU can handle it but it will shorten the life of it. Try and keep it as cool as possible!

these are the fans I have that came with the case. I tried to be as clean as possible with the cords.
Front: 2x120mm Blue/Red LED Silent Fans (19dBA)
Rear: 1x120mm Fan in Rear
Right Side: 1x120mm super slim fan for CPU
Top: 2x 230mm Silent Fans (24dBA)
Left Side: 2x 230mm Blue/Red LED Silent Fans (24dBA

what is TIM and heat-sink?

what is TIM and heat-sink?

TIM = Thermal Interface Material
Heatsink = the object that transfers heat emitted by the gpu and dissipates it.(usually a metal block of thin fins... looks like a small metal square)

TIM is a paste like substance put in between the heatsink and gpu to provide better thermal transfer, so the heat transfers from the gpu to the heatsink better, and thus the heatsink can dissipate more heat.

I suggest looking up how to replace TIM on a graphics card. It's not that hard... just take out the plastic shroud which should be attached by small phillip screws on each side of the graphics card. After the plastic shroud is off, just take out 4 philip screws on the back of the graphics card that are in a square shape attaching the heatsink and gpu together.

After wards get some lint free cloth and isopropal alcohol and clean the heatsink and gpu completely. [ dab some alcohol on the cloth]

Apply new TIM; place a sizable dot in the middle of the gpu about the size of a big pea and place the heatsink on again. i.e attach all screws back to original place. When placing the heatsink back on make sure to not move it too much and apply pressure or you might risk getting small air pockets in between the TIM and heatsink which will result in bad temperatures.

I suggest shin etsu 7783d for the TIM... or artic ceramique

EDIT: you do not need a torque screw driver unless you plan on replacing the thermal pads on the vrm modules/ ram chips... which i suggest you not doing unless you are putting a water block on it. If you don't know what they are then just disregard this part completely
