Second impression after gaming for a bit was they definitely could've used a beefier cooler. I have a feeling MSI prioritized acoustics over thermal performance, because even at 100% fans the cooler isn't too loud, and subjectively I can say the fans definitely felt like they pushed less air than the Classy's. Factory clocks on default fan curve always had the GPU running over 80C, and yes I have an Enthoo Primo with decent airflow so it's not that.

I think your post have to speak from your own experiences. Maybe your case isn't as good as you think or you got a gard not TIM properly. My temperatures were at 71C stock clocks, this is running Furmark for like 15 minutes.



I don't know what to say, I think MSI is probably bad at putting TIM on their cards, but I hear this happens to a lot of cards out there.

You do know that any modern GPU heavily throttles when it detects Fumark is running right? I mean look at your core clock, it's only running at 1177MHz. Try running something like Unigine Heaven for 15 minutes and see what temps you get.

Furmark is still going to heat your GPU up a lot, throttling or not. It's having your GPU at 100% usage and 100% power constantly. Heaven has those values jumping up and down from 70% to 100%. Also note, at 100% both power and usage, my fan was only at 60%.

From my memory, it was 71C on heaven as well, would jump to 74C for short periods, but that was it. Either way, it never reached 80C. I believe other users have similar tempeartures to mine.

I don't have the stock cooler anymore, so I'm not going to take the time to prove it. But when I had my PC in a poor case, Furmark gave me these results. It would be easier for you to run Furmark yourself for 15 minutes and compare them to Heaven for 15 minutes.

I used Kombustor's furmark BTW.

I'm also just reporting my own experience, and that's the card ran over 80C whether in Heaven or gaming. Only thing I can think of is I set the power limit to 109% because intensive games like BF4 would have the card hitting the power limit and downclocking once every while.

Also at least when playing BF4, I had the side panel off, and it still reached 80C. Paste job looked alright when I threw a waterblock on, so that's that.

In any case, the GPU would be the least of my worries. I'd be far more concerned about the VRM temps, especially if overclocking.

There is no need to worry about the VRM temps. We have a user here that put sensors on them and measured the temperatures for us. Check the images on the upper right to see his results.

The midplate does a fine job at conducting heat away from them.

for this card, what is the max safe temp and volts for gaming?

EDIT:

Unless the card was watercooled, I don't see how the VRMs could possibly be 55-57C when Guru3D measured 80+C coming off the backplate.

That and as I said previously. 1510/7600 @ 1.25V was not stable even with 100% fans, but after throwing on a waterblock I can now do 1530/7800 at just 1.21V. I upped the temp limit to 91C, and with 100% fans and the side panel off the core was doing 80-83C, so I wasn't thermally limited. Unless the vram was significantly overheating (possible), the VRMs must've been on fire at 1.25V.

Edit: Ok come on now the image came from this post. ZWinger threw on an AIO, has a fan pointed directly at the VRM heatsink, and in addition has another case fan pointed directly at the VRM area. There is good, cool airflow over the VRM area, not at all comparable with the stock cooler where the VRMs get battered with hot air coming off the heatsink fins.

Well you'd want to keep temp below the throttling point (83C), and for 24/7 use I wouldn't go above 1.25V.

It was G10d. The stock cooler isn't efficient at the least. I was only able to hit 80c vrms when i removed all airflow towards the heatsink.

Previously, we were talking about stock cooler and stock clocks.I thought we were talking about AIO when we started talking about over clocking. Didn't know you were still talking about the stock cooler ad OC.

For stock cooler and OC I have no comment as I didn't OC with the stock cooler.

No no I was talking about OCing on the stock cooler. That's why I was griping so hard about it.
