GTX 560 TI over heating

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey all,
I just got a brand new msi gtx 560 ti with the twin frozr II heatsink this morning. The card runs fine, but the car runs crazy hot. idle is fine, around 35c-38c, but under load it is reaching temps of 80c-90c with a fan speed of 100%. I've got adequate airflow in my corsair 650d case, only 1 video card and nothing blocking it, and my cpu is under water...

my old gtx 460 only hit about 65-67c under load. is this card just that hot, or do I have a defective unit? maybe somebody smart here has some insight that I don't.

Way too hot, I have the OC 2GB edition with the Twin Frozr II and idle is 32c and load is 55c

I suggest torquing down the 4 backplate screws.

just tried that, idle dropped 1 degree, load is the same. I was just playing crysis, the card went up to 94c and shut off. This doesn't look too good. thats a 39c difference between your card and mine. huh

how would you feel about opening her up and re-applying the terrible TIM job they likely did ? there are some great youtube videos that would walk you through it. thumb.gif

I'm thinking it's either a bad TIM job or it's not screwed on right somewhere. Or maybe the GPU die is not making contact with it's own heatspreader. I've seen reports of this on the 560 Ti before.

I'll bet that sorts you out. Let us know.

Yea that helped a bit. Idle is at 36, load 89c. The old paste was pretty globby. I used XSPC K2. I did notice that most gpus have a mirror finish, while this looks more like a cpu. also, the plate that makes contact has small ridges in it from manufacturing. dunno if that would make a big difference though.

sad to hear this from an MSI card.

out of curiosity, what speed and voltages are you using?
