post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am have a issue with this new card i have bought... when i play 20minutes of battlefield 3 this gtx 760 gets to about 76c on 66% fan speed at least that's what gpuz show now i don't know if this is defective or just normal this card does have the ACX cooler on it and is it supposed to be 15% cooler than the reference card? i mean really 76c in 20min in bf3 with a room temp of 22C is the thermal paste dried up or somthing? if anyone has a answer to this please share thanks

That's absolutely normal for a GTX 760.

The default fan setup is designed to keep the card at around 80 degrees, if you want it to run cooler then you will have to setup your own fan curve.

does this fan curve look good?

Really depends on how hot your want your card to be and how loud the cooler is. On my 570 SOC I ran my curve so that it was at 100% by 60c. Barely audible and ran under 55c. My 7950 I have set less aggressively due to the louder cooler. Play around and find out how high is bearable for you, and set your curve to max out at that percentage.

I have found out somthing odd with the 760's ACX cooler when i redid the thermal paste i have found a thermal pad on the heatsink that conducts heat off the mosfets onto the main heatsink also it looks like the 3rd heatpipe does not make direct contact with the gpu at all here's a picture i have found on a fourm have a look this is why this card is almost as hot as a reference model so pretty much only 1 heatpipe is making direct contact with the gpu and that other heatpipe touching the mosfets are making this card hotter than it is...
