Why is my 980Ti GPU Temp too high?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

I was watching a video on how to overclock the GPU using MSI Afterburner and noticed that the guy's GPU temp was around 40C while he was encoding the video he was doing so I checked my GPU temp and was shocked that it's 72C for the first GPU and 69C for the second GPU and I haven't even overclocked the GPU yet and this is just in the Windows 2D environment.

 

Is this normal or is there anything I need to worry about? Heck if my GPU temp is so high without even playing any games, I doubt I have any room for overclocking.

 

What do you think?

I just realized that the guy in the video is running a waterblock and I am just on air cooling on my GPUs, could that be the reason why his temps are so low and 71C on idle is actually normal?

Windows 10 makes my card idle crazy. 1.212v no matter what.
Do you have 2 in SLI? Are they reference cards?

71c at idle is not right.
I idle at like 40c, if that.

Windows 10, 2 980Ti in SLI running on the PG278Q @ 144Hz

 

They are the normal cards with air cooling, I think that's reference right?

Try running it at 120Hz in desktop mode, you don't 'need' 144Hz in desktop mode anyway, I can't see the difference between 120 and 144.
Then the card should idle again, right now it seems like it simply doesn't go into idle mode.
Then put your settings in NVIDIA Control Panel like this:

That way it will still be set at 144Hz while gaming smile.gif

Which 980 TIs?

Reference cards are blower style. Non-reference usually has 2+ fans and visible cooling.


Either way 71c idle is way too high. Are both cards doing that?

Those temps are quite high at 1000mhz. My non-sli classy runs 72-73 degrees at ~1450mhz when I'm stressing with Heaven Benchmark. Are the temps the same when the cards are running individually?

I never ran them individually
