MSI 6870 running hot - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Thread Starter 
I think I will blow it out, take a look at the heat-sinks and decide whether or not I want to mess with re-applying the thermal paste. I want this bad boy able to run BF3 on Tuesday.

Running my 6870 right now to see what temps I get so we can compare. I am not going to bump up the fan speed though. Fan is set to run at 65% at 80c and 100% at 95c.

Fan setting where set using Trixx.

Im pretty sure i maxed out about 90 degrees with my 6870 at 100% fan speed. Cant check now, but will when i get home on wednesday if you're still having problems.

Ok I am running at a max of 74c with current of 73c. current fan speed is 60%. been like this since 20 seconds into the stress test.

I do like to leave the side of the case of so I can see the pretty guts ;-)

If my wife wasn't asleep in the room I would put the side on to see where it goes but I think its safe to say your temps are high at that fan speed.

Is the card still under warranty? Removing the heat sink to apply thermal paste will most likely void your warranty. I would check with them first before I attempted this

If blowing the heat sinks out show no improvement I would say run it until it messes up. Don't know if they will let you RMA it just because it is running hot.

edit: quick pic of the action

I actually have the side of the case off right now... I wonder if it would help to put it on cuz I have a side fan that blows directly at the GPU.

If someone else maxes out at 90C, and I'm maxing out at 97-98C, sounds like if I blow it out and maybe put the side fan on I can lower the temps a little. Brb smile.gif

97C is too much for a barts GPU with a Twin Frozr II cooler at 100%. My 6850 doesn't even hit 70C overclocked, and only goes to like 65% fan speed. And mine is the messed up 6850.

Are you referring to when you run FurMark Burn-in test?

Because that's the only time the temps are getting that high
