[Official] 1440p and Above Gaming Club (1440p+) - Page 95

post #941 of 6172
Gaming at 1440p over 1080p runs my cards about 8-9 degrees hotter which was actually the same as the increase of going from 1080p too 5760x1080 strangely and also makes my max overclock at 1080p unstable so it definitely adds a much greater demand on the cards and pushes temps up.

Overclocked too 950 core my 580's will reach about 85 degrees with a quiet 70% fan speed, unless I push the fans too 100% when it doesn't go above 65 degrees.

However anything under 90 degrees is fine as GPU's can take it, fan noise is more my issue, which is why I love my cards.

However for every day use I haven't had too overclock them yet.

Good luck with that bro. Not many stores do that but they should. However make sure the content you see on a 1440p screen is a native 1440p content and not 1080p.

Something about the 6series cards that they need to be below 70c or they start downclocking themselves to lose heat.

I adopted the above fan profile and today when I gamed in BF3 the highest I saw was 71 degrees which is OK it seems. Also about the downclocking i think it is very small though no?

I agree.

 

playing an exact game in 1440p and 1080p both at 60fps will give different temperatures in exact same setups. 

Also I agree on OCing. The stability of an OC in 1080p MIGHT not be stable in 1440p. I experienced it when i switched to 1440p gaming.

It 's little yes, but defeats the purpose of your overlock if you have your cards overclocked.

I actually dont have a front fan.

2 bottom fans that as intake
3 top fans as intake
1 rear fan as an exhaust tahts my setup.

To be honest in BF3 i usually sit around 72 max but in some ther games i saw my GPU hitting 75 degrees. Also be warned that my room is HOT. Nothinc much I can do about it. The ambient temperature is not the most ideal.

Shouldnt you have the 3 top fans as exhaust as the hot air rises, so they can suck the hot air out.

this. From my experience you only want intakes on front and bottom. Exhaust is for rear and top

Hi,

Could someone tell me how Battlefield 3 would run @1440p, with one Asus GTX 670? I would run all settings on either Ultra or High without no MSAA and of course no FXAA (It just looks like a blurry mess to me). I would really prefer it if I can get a stable 60fps. Or would I need a second 670?

My particular 670 is overclocked, +135 and hits around 1270ish in-game. Sorry if someone has already mentioned it, but there is quite a lot of content in the thread!

I have a 670 as well and I game at ULTRA without AA and it runs @ 60fps but not stable. At some scenes I can see as low as mid 40s for a second or two.

 

However it is still a great experience.

iARDAs is right on the money with his experience. It was the same for me when I used one as well. When I did SLI with stock 670s they pushed constant 60fps with full AA, I just notch it down to 2x though as it's not something beneficial to me since its a twitch game.

Tomorrow I am getting a H100 and selling my H80 and will be using the H100 as push/pull as an exhaust. thumb.gif

Exactly. I mean 1 670 was more than enough for 1080p gaming but in 1440p gaming 1 670 is just enough (for Battlefield 3). I really would like a 2nd 670.
