GTX 970 Strix OC DirectCU II / idle temps

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I bought the ASUS StriX GTX 970 OC DirectCU II ( SLI soon ) i and want to ask you if the idle temps are not a bit too high.
Now i have 51 degrees, only Mozilla Firefox is opened.
I attache here more details about the card.
I use Windows 7 Ultimate x64, latest Nvidia driver - 347.88
Please help me, thank you

Thats because it has the no-fan mode. Your idle will be high because its on passive cooling. If you want a lower idle, create a custom fan curve.

offtopic : would you recommend to upgrade my cpu I7 920 ?

Build your rig in rig builder. We have no idea what your current CPU is...


i7-920 is quite old... that's not really an "upgrade" in today's standards...

play around with afterburner and learn how to use the program. We're not going to be your teacher for a day showing you the in's and out's of the program. The fan curve is quite easy to understand and easy to set. teaching.gif

Well it would help if you filled out what kinda of hardware you have.

A 920 is older, but can still be effective. I had a 960 up until last year and gamed just fine with it. Oc'd it a lil bit and even used 2 7970's in cf with it.

It really just depend and what you are tryin to do and why do you feel you need and upgrade. Are you hitttin some sort of wall?

A good upgrade for my 960 was an ssd, i brought new life into that rig.
