Gigabyte GTX 570 with the Arctic Accellero Xtreme 3 OverHeating Issue???

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
As the title reads,

My 570 keeps overheating its not the gpu temps themselves but the componants nearest the power inputs get really hot to touch yet the rest of the PCB is perfect and cool....

Idle GPU temps are around 28 degrees - 34 degrees and load from 42-54 degrees full load..

Any ideas would be helpful im making a video now to show exactly were the heat is coming from so when thats uploaded ill link you here.

My problem here

Any help would be great thanks

Those small parts(MOSFET) and the larger R125 components(Inductor AKA Choke) are part of the VRM (Voltage Regulator Module), they can get really really hot.
Just put some small heat sinks on them and you should be fine. You can also turn up the fans on your cooler so you get a bit more airflow over the heat sinks.
You can also lower your overclock which puts less stress on these components.

Same think happens with my 660Ti, the PCB beneath these components get super hot.

Here is a small article about VRMs if you want to learn more: http://www.geeks3d.com/20100504/tutorial-graphics-cards-voltage-regulator-modules-vrm-explained/

EDIT: Did you put thermal pads between the VRM components and the heatsinks?

Yeah i do have heat sinks on them those r125 chips and the little black ones next the them and it still gets hot as so ive turned my cpu cooer to face down on the back of the gpu and blow air onto it and ive got a fan blowing air into my case from the side panel, also a fan pulling air into the case from the top to help blow the air through the cpu heatsink and out to the gpus pcb smile.gif so far its cool enough but its loud as all balls lol

So i need to play around with the cpu coolers fans rpm and hope to get it right and not get it hot smile.gif

Don't worry if those components get hot, they can handle the heat, no need to have the fans at full speed all the time just run them a little faster than usual if you want.

Try cleaning out the cooler itself, try re-seating the heatsinks, and all other smaller heatsinks.

It's a bit of work, but I'm sure that will fix the problem.

I have the AC Xtreme 3 on my GTX580, and have to do this about once or so every few months (Atleast the cleaning part) and I've never had a problem before.

Yeah the card itself is clean and i was thinking of trying to remove the heatsinks from the right side of the card because i noticed when i put a heatsink on one of the componants at the top the card would reach 80+ degrees lol so im not sure i need to get more adhesive so i can glue them back on if taking them off doesnt fix it..

Thanks for the input anyways man
