MSI Twin Frozr II 6870 running too hot?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I bought a MSI Twin Frozr 6870 last week and I'm getting much higher temperature than I had expected at default clock speeds and 100% fan speed. I'm idling in the low 50s and in most games the GPU runs at 85~ degrees celsius at 99% load and the temp nearly hit 100 in Furmark before I closed it. Is this normal? The box says that it runs 19 degrees cooler than the reference 6870 (66 vs 85) at full load but I'm definitely not seeing that.

581

Should I get it replaced or is this normal? Thanks!

That's really high. Are you sure that both of the fans are functioning correctly?

My 580 doesn't even hit 75 while fans are at 85% and the 580 is more powerful...

That's pretty warm for a tfii.. my 5770 maxed at 60 and my current (though tfiii) max at 63. Are you having artifacts or anything? Furmark is designed to make some heat.

They look like they are working fine, they gain around 3000RPM going from 24% fan speed to 100%.

No artifacts that I can see in any games.

edit: It's worth noting that the temperature increases very fast (i.e.: instantly) when it goes from 0-99% load.

Way too high for 100% fan. It's some of these: The card is bad, the cooler is mounted badly, or the card doesn't get any air.

I think the card is bad, the back is covered with a bunch of sticky white dots and clear streaks. I'll get it RMA'd on Monday, thanks for the help guys.
