GTX 690 temperatures

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
According to today's Motherboards.org review of the GTX 690, it only reaches 44 Celsius under full load.

The card does have reduced power consumption when compared to two GTX 680's:

one GTX 690: 300 W
dual GTX 680: 390 W

So that's 90 W less, but I still find this load temperature too good to be true. Any thoughts?

After seeing the review on Techpowerup, I've done some more research:

The test motherboard.org used for the temperatures was Tessmark OpenGL 4, a tesselation benchmark.

So I guess the 44 C is under full load of the tesselation units only, not the full gpu load. doh.gif

Load temps have been in the 85°C range in most reviews I've read. Give or take a few degrees either way. So SLI non-ref 680s can be cooler and will generally overclock better.

Would be nice watercooled, though! specool.gif

My GTX 690 idles at 26 degrees and has not raised above 60 during times of load. thumb.gif

Dang guys, these are some awesome temps! Seems like this 690 really can pull some watts but keep the temps down! Certainly Nvidia is doin a great job with heatsink design and GFX card efficiency.

With a custom fan profile my 690 reaches around 68C overclocked at +125c/+250m. At idle its right around 30C

Hi all.

I have a question to ask regarding the quad sli set up of dual evga geforce gtx690 cards that I have installed into my case. I have posted in the watercooling thread already in order to place an order for a custom vram waterblock, from nateman_doo (US). It is for an asrock x79extreme11 motherboard. After I install all the various hardware components into my cooler master cosmos ii ultra tower, I will need to take a baseline sample of the system running a cooler master x6 cpu cooler on an i7-3960x chip and everything else air cooled. Because of the x6, I am unable to install all of the g.skills 64GB(8GBx8) DDR3 DIMM modules; I can only install 32GB of memory ie 4 sticks into the primary bank of quad channel memory. The secondary bank of quad channel memory is obstructed by the fan on the outside of the x6 cpu cooler.

I am awaiting parts ordered from Aqua Computer, Germany, for a fully customised, water cooling loop system that utilises an external cooling tower; full copper water blocks for both gtx690 cards; full copper hdd coolers; silver/copper cpu cooler; full copper custom vram waterblock - finished with mil. spec. silver or palladium plating... and that is only my initial order from them. Not to mention all the fittings.

This is where I seek any help whatever from any of you guys, as to how I can make the most out of an entirely water cooled gaming rig that is also my first time build.

I will try to post pictures once parts arrive from Germany - so about the beginning of November, 2012. Any advice is appreciated and welcomed about what sort of temperatures I should be aiming at in the water cooled edition of my pc build.

Cheers,
Brett.
