EVGA GTX 670 FTW temps

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I was overclocking my GTX 670 yesterday, hit 1293/3450 and was very satisfied. The problem is that my card, even though my chassi is very well ventilated and I have a custom fan profile etc, will hit 75c.

Should I be worried? I was planning on getting a second one but at 75c on a single slot card that feels a bit... well.. dangerous? It only downclocks 13 mhz, which isnt really a big hit performance wise, but Im still having some doubts since reviews puts it at abouts 60c on stock fan profiles etc, and my card actually hit 100c on the stock profile and stock settings when playing crysis 2 with 3D.

The chassi is a C70 with dual 140mms for intake top, 3x 120mm front (1 for the graphics card) and a Noctua U12P - SE2 with dual corsair SP120s for a cpu cooler, theres a good airflow throughout the whole case.

it seems like you might have static pressure inside the case, you do have the fans pointed in one direction for airflow haven't you.

Yes, I have all air going from the front of the case towards the upper end of the case.

I think if you put in a second card, you'll need to not overclock it, you could consider using the hybrid cooler on the top card which should alleviate some heat issues.

What hybrid cooler is that? I don't see a hybrid cooler mentioned by the OP anywhere, or are you suggesting he buy one?

There.... That should be fine just on the top card and leave the bottom card with the normal shroud

I still dont understand how it can run as hot as it does... Would it be an idea to reseat the cooler and apply new thermal paste?

That's certainly one way to spend $100+.

If your card is running at 100C at stock speeds with the default auto fan profile then that is without a doubt faulty. I would contact EVGA, describe your problem and then ask them if they want you to replace the TIM or if they want you to just send the card in for an RMA.

It wouldn't hurt to be honest, you may see some improvement....

Yeah it's $100 but it's still epic, he can just replace the thermal paste but his top card will still hit between 80 - 85c on full load. This will reduce that if he's concerned.
