The AUTO fan settings are a bit too loud for my taste. I think my first gen Corsair H60 (before 2013 model) is the cause for high-ish temps. I believe it is broken and the radiator gets very hot so hopefully once I replace that my GPU temps will reduce since it seems everyone here is getting under 70C.

Then again, I was testing The Witcher 3 last night. :/

Yeah! biggrin.gif

Now temperature raises wink.gif I configured the fans to reach the limit of 70% just in case of 74°.
In the coming days I'll keep always opened Afterburner monitor while playing, in order to check temps. So far it seems everything allright.

And as soon as the last Witcher 3 DLC comes out, I'll finally play the game and see also there how things go. smile.gif

cheers.gif mate, and thanks! biggrin.gif

Can you post your fan profile please?

Thanks for the feedback!

Can you and perhaps some others do some testing with the existing "AUTO" settings and log what your max temps as well as the fan noise generated (I don't have fans anymore I have blocks) and then switch to a custom fan curve and show me (in a GPU-z log) what settings you think are improved as far as the same tests/conditions of both max temps and fan noise generated?

Thanks!

Will be back in a few hours with results smile.gif

Edit: This will take a day actually tongue.gif

Sure mate! smile.gif

Keep in mind that I use global adaptive power management in nVidia control panel, and performance for specific games and 3D applications.
I setted my fans on afterburner like this, for now:

till 51° --> 0%
at 52° --> 15%
at 56° --> 35%
at 61° --> 50%
at 69° --> 60%
at 72° --> 65%
at 74° --> 70%

Of course it will raise at a certain point till 74°.. then you'll hear for sure the fans rolling. But hey, this is it speaking about air cooling. wink.gif
I'll be testing next days to not go over 76°.. otherwise I wil have to raise the fans rotation more than 70%.

Ok, it's Friday and I finally had some time to play a game, so I played an hour of BF4 just to test out this OC. (max settings, DSR resolution 2715x1527 (2x))

The good news is it's stable. Reminder that I'm at 1570 core/4001 mem (what I'm reading from Afterburner). Temps are great, below 60 C. I had no throttling at all from normal gameplay.
But I did come across throttling a couple times, for about 1-2 seconds. Whenever I was (literally) in a big explosion which produced a lot of particles and whatnot, of course my FPS dipped a bit and I noticed the core clock throttled down about 100 MHz. As Afterburner reports it, the cause is a voltage limit. Honestly this is not an issue to me since the throttle only lasts for a second or two, and only when ***** is blowing up right in my face.

With that said, under preliminary testing I think it's safe to say that 99% of the time there are no perfcaps. And when there are it only lasts for a second.

On a side note, my card sounds like a dying animal. I don't know why I put time into making a custom SpeedFan curve for the GPU radiator fan when I can't even hear it over the coil whine gunner2.gif

Thanks for the feedback. Please provide a GPU-z log of when this happens.

Do you have the voltage and power% sliders maxxed all the way?
post #3790 of 7450
Yup I do. I'll play some more after I eat dinner and try to get you a log. Do I just keep GPU-Z running in the background while playing?
