GT 430 Heat

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
Apparently my EVGA GT 430 gets up to 100*C when it folds and I read that the max temp is 98*C.

This is my card

Is it the TIM?

There is no harm in trying. They slop it on and don't take the care we do. Its worth a shot and shouldn't void your warranty.

Read the first review on the page. That's what he did and it worked.

With such a high load temp, there are a few possibilities.  Go through each below:-

 

a.  faulty fan: use Afterburner to check the rpm of the GT430 fan when it is under load. Confirm visually as well.  At 100C, the fan must be spinning at full speed. (Make sure the fan speed profile is not somehow fixing the speed at a low %).

 

b.  GT430 sucking up all the hot exhaust from the MSI 5850 TFII. If you have not made any rearrangement inside the case recently, then this is not the likely cause.

 

c.  faulty reading: GT430's sensor is faulty and/or the temp monitoring software is faulty. Use 2 softwares to cross-check (eg Afternburner and GPU_Z).

 

d.  TIM drying up

 

e.  Heatsink of GT430 is misaligned and does not have good contact pressure with the GPU.  If neither a nor b nor c works, then remove the heatsink, reapply TIM and remount the heatsink properly.

 

(Unless the ambient temp is unusually high or the heatsink is fully clogged with dustballs, these 2 factors should not contribute to such a high load temp)
