A new case is probably an idea, but I'm stuck with a BTX mobo, and I've not seen any performance cases that cater for it. Also, with case open I'm still running hot at 85°C. My PC will probably allow an additional 80mm fan at the back but will that beat having the case open? Maybe - if my RMA fails - watercooling is the way to go.

Any idea if a waterblock will work on my card? I mean one that will cover the memory chips as well. MSI are known to diverge from the reference design.

Yes I have the same version as you.

The thing with these kinds of card is that even if you take the side panel off it releases some of the hot air out. But these cards need to be assisted by airflow to pull that warm air away from the card itself and cool air to them. See were I'm going with this?

Most people would not buy a card like that and put it into a Dell case. Because Dell cases don't move air around very well at all. As well they don't exhaust the warm air out of the case at all. As in you situation. You need to have cool air coming in from the front and the warm air blowing out the back so you have good circulation. You temps will sky rocket if the card is sitting in a hot box so to speak.

what temps do you get if you run the card with the case open?

might be just the ambient inside your case is very high. run it with the case open and see what temps you get.

i would take it back, seems way to hot if u have the side panel open. If u have any spare fans install them anywhere where it push fresh air to the card to do a quick test. But honstly it seems a bit defective

I had 580 TFII's and they never ran that hot in in SLI. Btw, 580 TFII's are ref so they will take to water like fish.

That said, get a new system. BTX...? New board and case, probably have to get a psu with a new case anyways?

85°C with case open, 82°C with my room window open letting in cold winter air. Proves the case for good airflow I guess over cold rooms wink.gif

Maybe If I'm sucessful with the RMA, I get a card that mostly vents heat externally like the single fan type and get a 80mm fan. I only wish they warn noobs like me about needing a performance case.

So your saying that only opening PC case is not enough, and I need more fans and a better case. Well, case is unlikely as I cant find one that works for the BTX form factor. Also, do you think the card is faulty?

Nice wc there for the CPU.

As you can see it's also shoveling in th hot ass air from the cpu to help cool that gpu.

Sorry bud, but you just bought a Dell that isn't meant to house a GTX anything imo.


The OP is running a DELL XPS 420, not a custom case or custom anything.

Honestly, surprised you fit that 580 in there to begin with.

Tbh I don't think it is a faulty card but we may never know now that you rma'ed it. Unless they send that same one back to you.

Let me ask you another question what kinda power supply do you have and how do you have it hooked up. Meaning does the power supply itself have a 8 pin and 6 pin power connector to it or are you using adapters?

When you can pick up something like this. It can be any brand but something similar.
