Backup 660Ti Twin Frozr Hitting 90+ Degrees Celsius

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone!

 

So at the moment I am using an old backup Twin Frozr 660Ti. I've actually never had to use this particular 660Ti until today since my old one bit the dust as it were and the reason I never really used it was because the board appears to be partially bent at the back where the power connectors are.

 

So I am not sure if it's because of that or not but when I ran a usual "burn test" to make sure everything would stay working and not give out on me, I noticed something that I have never seen from any GPU I have ever owned - past or present. It was hitting 90-91 degrees Celsius. 

 

For years, I have heard that these GPUs have a max limit of around 105C and this thing looked like if I kept it on longer it would climb into 92 degrees if not further.

 

In comparison, my Twin Frozr that died, hit clocks of 1228Mhz at 73-75C,

 

I'm just wondering whether or not for the three days I am using this card if it's going to... well... blow up in my face/catch on fire/do other miscellaneous flammable things?

 

Oh, and as an added bonus, I know Kepler cards were supposed to throttle back at 75C but this card keeps boosting up and sustains 1123MHz with no real throttle down whatsoever until the 3D application is closed. Unfortunately, I was forced to rely on software to see how fast the fans were going and as you can see - they reported two different things. However, given how fast they sounded like they were spinning, I'm inclined that it was closer to 85% than 63%.

Since that's an older card I'd probably replace the TIM that's between the GPU and heatsink. Sounds like your old thermal compound is dried out since the speed of your fans isn't changing the temps.

Yeah, I had just thought of that too but given the damage to the card (bent near the power plugs) I am just replacing it was a 970/980/980Ti/Titan as I posted in another thread.

 

Previously, I tried flashing my dead 660Ti's BIOS to it after noticing the problems (they are the exact same model of cards - purchased at the same time) to no avail so I reflahed the one that was on the card.

 

I will only be using it for another two days before disposing of it. Just no more 3D games: it reached Tjmax and shut down.
