I have a new EVGA 970 SC that is running really hot and thermal throttling the core clock frown.gif

Does anyone know whats up with this, I had an MSI 960 twin frozr and the fans made zero noise even if they were going above 70% and the card never even saw 60C. This EVGA seems like a POS compared to that card, it is super loud and it is not keeping the card cool. It's going to over 80C and starts to downclock while it sounds like there's a jet turbine in my case....I've tried re-doing the thermal paste and making sure there is good contact with the heat sink, but the thing still runs F#%&ing hot!

Which card and case do you have? EVGA made several 970 SC's.

SC GAMING ACX 2.0

Case is a Deepcool Tesseract standard ATX size. Even has a fan on the side pulling cool air in

So I read something that said to try running GPU-Z while running a benchmark and looking at the "Perfcap Reason" when it starts to throttle

Well during idle the bar is grey and says "Util" and the blank areas are when the benchmark(unigine heavan) is running fine at full clock speeds, then green is when it starts downclocking and says "Pwr"

post #24997 of 26275
finally the 970s are in . Forgot to check the ASIC quality before putting them in order frown.gif
Sitting 22c idle in a 20c room - hopefully ge some benches on the go to see how the system handles the heat and get fan profiles sorted first before OCing.
Anyone running Twin Turbos? and using a custom Bios?

The power limit is set in the bios of the card.

You can use MSI Afterburner or Precision X to pump the power limit up. You can take it all the way on the bar, it won't hurt your card. If that gets rid of the Pwr perfcap then you can do it that way. A bios mod would be a permanent fix so you wouldn't have to use OC'ing software though.

I am running two MSI 970's, both are on a custom bios. The 970's really benefit from a bios mod. That's my opinion anyway.

I've done a BIOS Mod already, for 320W! Still throttling "Perfcap reason: Pwr".......the card runs hot also, up to 83C and fans at >60% the thing sounds like a turbine engine.....I dont understand all the EVGA praise, I took the card apart last night to reapply the thermal paste and the build quality seems very poor... 4 screws securing the heat sink to the die and another 3 or 4 perimeter screws...super basic design.......I like the performance advantage over my MSI gtx960, but the build quality of their coolers and PCB puts EVGA's to shame imo...

I think next I may use a custom fan profile to limit the fan speed to 55% so it isn't so loud..but keep an eye on thermals.

Some cards will take a lot more than others. At 83c though, you're not doing yourself any favors, as at those temps, the card won't reach it's full potential anyway. Anything above 50c, and you start losing overclocking potential.

Mind linking a copy of the bios mod you're running? Some of them are setup pretty poorly.

EVGA gets rave reviews because they have good build quality and the most amazing customer service in the business. I won't be an NVIDIA GPU made by any other company, specifically for that reason.
