Abnormally High GPU Temps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have two GTX 580's in SLI who's temps rarely got over 70C using 75% of my fan speed under full gaming load. Over the past few days I have done some overclocking on my RAM and CPU (i7-950 from 3.06-3.76 and RAM from 1600-1884) and have noticed my GPU temps increasing exponentially to around 80C even with 100% fan speed. I'm wondering if this is due to higher overall temps in the case or something else that I should be concerned about, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.- Tom V.

    It could be from higher case temperatures.
    Also, when you overclocked the CPU and memory, did you raise the FSB speed to do it?  Raising the FSB could possibly increase the PCI-E bus speed as well, which would increase the data rate to your video card—causing it to run faster and hotter.

It could be that it the temp inside of your case. Or your thermal on ur gpu is dried out.

I've never changed the thermal paste on my gpus but I don't think such a sudden rise in temps could be caused by that. Still, it's something I'll do soon. The only numbers I changed in my OC were: 188x20, DRAM at 1884 and VCLK at 3768 and the voltage at 1.25. Everything else I left on auto.
