Gigabyte GTX 570 Noise/Temp

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello! I have a Gigabyte GTX 570. Most reviews/comments have been saying it stays cool and quiet but my GPU temp jumps to 75-85c with fans at 80-90% immediately when I start gaming (Bad Company 2 and DOW2 for instance). Fallout New Vegas does not seem to do this. I have the Corsair 500r for a case.

I know the temp isn't damaging but is that normal for this card? I haven't yet tried messing with fan speed profiles to help with the noise. Fan noise doesn't seem to be that noticeable until past 60%... but it almost always wants to be at 80+ because of the temps. Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

I have a gigabyte soc gtx 570, I idle at 37 and load at 60-65 in games but that's all thanks to the custom cooler and the fans on the side. I would suggest adding two fans on the side panel for in-take/exhaust depending on the cooler of the card. 75-85 is considered normal at full load, but a little high for my preference.

Thanks. I do have a 200mm side panel fan, but it is an intake fan. The card seems to exhaust the heat towards the side panel. Do you think reversing the fan to an exhaust would help or not? Does your card get to the load temps right away or is it gradual? Mine will be up to 80+ within a minute of playing BC2.

I have another PC with a gtx 260, and with BC2 at the same settings with a reference cooler and terrible case airflow and it doesn't break 60c (granted it runs the game poorly). So I thought this setup would have been waaaay more efficient at cooling.

lol my bad I didn't realize that you had pretty much the same card as me. Yeah u want to reverse the fans to exhaust the warm air out. And my card warms up gradually but 2min seems like the right time frame. If reversing the fan doesn't work then reapply the thermal paste. If all else fails theres always RMA.

You might benefit from turning the side panel fan around.

My cousin had a problem similar to this and it turned out his side panel fan was blowing the hot air back towards the card resulting in temps to get higher and higher as time went on.

We turned his fan around and voila, no more overheating. Your setup may be different but I would give it a shot.

I turned the fan around and that did not make much of a difference. It still went up to high 80's after about 3-5 minutes of use, just touching 90c once. I also removed the side panel with only a few degrees difference.

Not too sure what to do... could try changing the thermal paste I suppose. Does this sound like a faulty card or is this not that uncommon? Thanks again!

I'm hoping maybe someone has a few ideas on how to better cool the card. The hot exhaust air seems to get trapped. I 'rigged' a fan to sit right above where the heat exhausts from the card, blowing the air up, and that keeps it at 81c during full load (playing Battlefield 3 on Ultra). Any ideas on a better permanent solution? For reference here are a few pictures.

Here's the inside of my case, where the air exhausts:

Here is where it is located on the side panel (didn't have an actual picture):

Would one of those PCI exhaust fans directly above the card work? My other thought is to replace the large side panel fan with two 140mm's. Bottom being intake, top being exhaust. I am still surprised that I would have to go through this amount of trouble though. Thanks again.

I personally don't like cards with the fan setup like this. All that hot air goes everywhere in your case and heats up everything else instead of going on direction. It might be a bad card or something. Shouldn't just jump straight to 80C my card takes a good 3-5mins before i see it hitting 60-70C range. I would try having a fan on top or in front of the card. Try and see if you can mount a fan in front of the card near the hhd cage. Its what i did to help with airflow and cool down the back of the card as well.

I will try a fan at the hard drive cage to see if that helps. Thanks.
