Does upgrading your GPU lead to higher CPU temps while gaming?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I had a GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores and during Battlefield 3, my temps across the cores would range from 42 - 46 C. Now I have a GTX TITAN and the cores range from 53 - 56 C during Battlefield 3. Is this normal?

I meant does upgrading to a more powerful GPU lead to higher CPU temps while gaming? I am guessing yes because it stresses the CPU more?

Yes, because power supply needs to push more power , cards have higher clocks , cpu gets stressed more ,

if your previous gpu is a bottleneck, then upgrading your gpu will make the cpu run hotter because it's now being utilized better.

same thing the other way around, if you have a titan and a dual core celeron, then the titan won't gonna be utilized to it's full potential and it will run cooler.

less utilization, less heat.

Titan is hotter and probably you have a bad case/airflow

Yeah, pretty much this. That 560 Ti was holding your CPU back. Have you checked CPU usage while playing? Chances are it is higher than it was before.
