If your temps rise that fast then you need to change your thermal paste.

WoW!! 90ºC it's way too much heat for this card... exclamation.gif

I own a ASUS GTX 550Ti DC and it works normally at 30-35ºC when idle and when running 3D games (even with a OC) it works only between 45-55ºC...so to me, 90ºC is a bit scary! (my old card, a 8800GT worked at that temperature for some time, just near 'her final days'...it 'crashed and burned!').

I believe there's something wrong with it...I live in Lisbon (Portugal) and even in plain summer, with temperatures reaching almost 40ºC during the day, the card wont even reach 60ºC running games in 1080p and with a OC!

Try to check if your card cooler fan has dirt in it, if it has dirt it's possible that it's not working properly, you'll need to clean it well. eh-smiley.gif

Another sugestion...didn't your card came with any type of software? My ASUS came with the SmartDoctor program wich can be configured to set the cooler in 'SmartCooling' mode, you can even change the temperature values that control the fan speed but the default ones should be enough. There are other similar programs, you should use one of them to at least prevent the card from reaching those high values...


Good luck with it! specool.gif

wow that seems really high, there can be a few problems causing this:

1. fan is not spinning, or is spinning very slowly.
2. Bad TIM (thermal interface material) job.
3.Dust
4.really bad case ventilation.
