I'm just surprised that how it is. You think nvidia would be able to do a better job the that. Also I will be water cooling the system within a month so the temps won't be very high at all.

Those idle temps are pretty bad, nvidia GPU's run so hot.

(jokes, but this what people say about AMD in general because of one series of cards - 290 series)

Hi folks, new to the forums here and wound up finding this fine establishment while I was looking for a solution to this very problem. I just replaced my 780ti with the Titan X and noticed my idle temps were going through the roof as well. I have a 3 screen set up-main display is a 3440x1440, on top of that is a 2560x1440, and off to the side via HDMI is my plasma TV, which I use for some couch and controller gaming. The TV always is disconnected via control panel when not in use. I'm not smart enough to figure out why pulling the HDMI cord out of the back of Titan made the idle temps go from 65c to 37c. Also I never had this issue with the 780ti. Anyhoo maybe it's a driver issue and can be sorted out in the future?

Yes I have the exact same issue and I know why its happening. I have two titan x's in sli. My idle temp on my primary card would be 64 or 65 degrees at all times on the desktop. I have a ROG swift. The asus 2k gsync 144hz monitor. The clock speed on the card will never reach an idle state driving 2k at 144hz. It stays at about a clock speed of 800mhz and change. When I change the refresh rate from 144hz to 120hz, this allows my card to drive the monitor at a clock speed of 135mhz. This is about the clock speed you would see in an idle state. So what is happening to your card is that its settings either for resolution or for refresh rate are too high even on the desktop for the card to be in an idle state. So it runs at a higher clock speed to drive the higher res or higher refresh rate and as a result runs at a higher temp. The only solution for me is to lower the refresh rate to 120hz. Now my idle temps are high 30s on the primary card. So for your setup however there isn't a good solution. Either you would have to keep a monitor unplugged or lower the resolution or refresh rate until the clock speed drops down to an idle state... but who wants to do that! annoying isn't it. Other than that though your stuck with the higher clock speed and temp if you don't do that. frown.gif

wow, ok that makes sense. I will definitively give that a shot. Rep!

Hey Guys

I used to have this error, but as KrisPcueKumber mentioned dropping to 120 at desktop seemed to manage it. Just had a similar problem again running it in SLI... but this time both my core clocks were pushed to 1001 with the monitor set to 60Hz??? also both cards were idling at 65 and 62 respectively.

As soon as I disabled SLI it resolved??

Any Ideas? would be a great help redface.gif
