Techlock Holmes Needed! - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Taking a second look at that graph in gpu-z i noticed one of the temps at 102C. That is quite likely the cause for the throttling. If the card is new then perhaps RMA it or you could try reseating the gpu heat-sink. That would void the warranty though.

Diablo 3 shouldn't be causing it to reach 102 at 100% fan speed.

I agree, something is definitely wrong with the heat dissipation, either the heatsink isn't seated properly, the fans and heatsink are dirty, or your case isn't getting any airflow, and basically acting like an oven..

There's no way it should be reaching 100+ degrees when not sitting at a constant 100% GPU, and thats without having a fan at 100%..

Is the heatsink dirty? Is the fan spinning properly? Do you have appropriate intake fans?

If you look at core core clock and memory clocks in that GPU-Z screenshot, you can see it going up and down alot (which is throttling).

When playing a game, the clocks and vddc should remain constant, while the Load and Fan speeds should be the only thing that moves around.

Seeing as your fan is at 100% I can see how that can gather up quite a bit of dust, and once you start getting dust the fan will spin harder and thus begins a snowball effect lol

Hi. I've cleaned a bit more my already cleaned case and fans and it seems that its working a little bit better, but i still have issues. I think that throttling should be the main reason. I see my cpu frecuency indicator going from 3411.26 to 1404 MHz every two seconds aprox.

I was referring to GPU throttling, not CPU, and its normal for a core or two to drop the multi down on idle, it's a power saving feature. If your CPU throttles, all of your cores will drop down at the same time, to the same amount.

You seem to be mixed up between GPU and CPU.

CPU is your processor in your motherboard, and GPU is your video card (graphics adapter) that your monitors plug into.


It's your GPU that's having the heating issues, not your processor (Atleast from what I can see in Core Temp, your CPU hits 48C max, which is perfectly fine)

How old is the card? Have you ever taken off the heatsink? Is it dirty?

If it's not dirty, and the fan is spinning properly (no loud rattling, or grinding sound) then I suggest re-applying some good quality thermal paste.

Don't insult me. tongue.gif I know the difference between GPU and CPU.

I hit 48 C with my cpu idle. with some video action, it hits +60.

ive cleaned more my already cleaned GPU fan and it work better, but i'm too far away of what this setup should give me and gave me before. Im still perceiving some kind of microlag as I showed you in the linked video.

thanks for the help anyway. im still looking for more ideas.

Noviet's reply was a far cry from an insult. Try not to be so defensive when YOU are then one that needs help here.

The previous 2 comments were in regards to your GPU being abnormally high and that it is throttling because of it. They suggested that you either look into cleaning it more or consider doing an RMA. Your next reply is about your CPU which had nothing to do with the recent solutions given to you. That kind of implies to us that maybe you are a little confused as to what we are telling you.

I agree that you should consider an RMA at this point. Reseating the GPU heatsink should only be done if you are 100% sure that it will fix your issue or you have money for a new GPU if it doesn't work and void your warranty IMO.

Could you post a picture of your rig? I'm sure we could make suggestions on how to better optimize your air flow which could help.
