EVGA GTX 670 FTW Unboxing and Benchmarks [56K Warning] - Page 19

post #181 of 225
People are saying this new architecture runs so cool, but obviously that's not the case for everyone.

I just installed a GTX 670 into a friends PC we put together last weekend, and I didn't even check the idle temperature before strapping an Antec 620 on there. Using just the single Antec fan that comes with the radiator the card is hitting 21C at idle and 43-44C in Heaven after you give it some time to warm up all the way. Power consumptions never passed 94% but I can't remember what the clocks were at. I'll post back when I overclock the card this weekend.

The radiator is set up as an intake from the bottom of the PC, and the block is strapped on with zip ties the traditional way. You have to remove the stock cover plate to get contact, so you will also need sinks for the VRM and RAM chips on the board.

Edit- Also it starts to throttle at 70C.

Yes, I also noticed throttling at 70C, so I had to setup a custom fan profile.

I believe 70 is where mine started to throttle as well. I see you're running 30+, so since it's kind of cool today I may try bumping it up a little just for giggles. I do have one other question that's a little OT, I recently saw someone referencing PCIe express x16 extender cables, and I was wondering if these cables are PCIe 2.0 & 3.0 compatible, or will they cause bus timing issues with the higher throughput of those standards? I presume they are 1.0 compatible, but not sure about more current standards. I did send the seller this question but haven't heard back from him. I'd think that most of these cables are similar, that's why I am asking the question here, if anyone has any experience with them. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150795824622&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:US:1123

Hey guys, im looking at buying a 670 and see a lot of people recommending this card for its performance and EVGA customer support. I was wondering if the support is as good in Europe as it seems to be in the US?
post #186 of 225
Ugh, I think this card is going back. I decided to try Max Payne 3 with it, and it stays at around 83-85c at max fan speed on stock speeds. Something is obviously wrong there. Trying to decide if I should get another FTW, or just go off with a different brand. I would miss EVGA's awesome warranty if I went with something else though. ;(

what case are you running?

also you manually input 80% max fan speed and you're still hitting 83-85C? I hit about 83C stock fan speed. If I manually input max fan speed, I am alot lower

I'm running a Haf-X case Here is a picture of my current fan profile:

haf x should provide plenty of air flow....something is certainly broken if you run 80% fan speed and only achieving 83-85C.

Btw I just ran a test and mine flattens out around 65C with 80% fan speed
