You might have a busted fan, or the heatsink could be seated improperly. I'd reseat it and replace the TIM.

Actually I just thought of something. It is possible that one of the thermal pads arent on fully. I ran my card after redoing the TIM and one thermal pad was off about half way. I started to benchmark it and temps instantly shot up to 83C+.

That could all be true but I was figuring out if this could be something unrelated to the Graphics card, since if it really is a bad tim job it will be returned to the store ofc.

Tried MSI after burner, set it to 60% when playing BF3 beta it turned itself up to 85 when my GPU was steeply heading for 94C. Also GPU was 100% in use the whole time.

Last thought RMA for a new one :/

You should probably return it to the store. Redoing TIM is fine and all but I would be on the safe side and just return or RMA it.

OP what kind of case do you have? The Twin Frozr cards exhaust internally, so good case airflow is essential to vent the heat.

Fractal design define R3, two fans blowing in from the front, and the Antec 620 blowing out. 2 in 1 out so most air should be forced out other ways, like PCI slots and w/e holes there are in the case.

Also it takes the GPU less then 1 minute to go 90+ in the game.

True, but it sounds like his card is defective. He should not be approaching temps that high regardless.

I have a twin frozr 3 and it idles 28-33 and goes up to 60ish at load.

Well considering how fast your card is overheating, there is most likely something wrong with it. But for future reference, it's generally a good idea to have a negative pressure setup for internal exhaust cards (as far as temps are concerned).

You have 2 intakes and one exhaust partially obstructed by a radiator, so the warm air can't really escape. Even with a functioning card I'd expect your temps to be higher than average.

You may want to consider an external exhaust ref model next time around. smile.gif

Well still able to add 4 more fans if needed but seeing it was getting 97 it had to be the GPU i guess. Bought the Twin Frozr II for a reason and this aint the reason smile.gif
