Anyone know what 'safe' temps under load are for the R2?

Its a standard desktop class GTX 960 in the Alpha, and according to NVIDIA, the maximum GPU temp is 98c:

Mine hits a maximum of 82c when under full load, so no problems there!

Same here. Just not in in-game menus in Assassin's Creed Unity...87c. That is hot.

Haha and I'm over here worried about 82c

Away for the weekend so I'll do more testing tomorrow.

Gotta be the PSU. Away for the weekend so I'll do more testing tomorrow.

Is the original psu not powerful enough or faulty?

So, who's going to be the first to try and replace the thermal paste on the GPU?
The CPU is the same arrangement as on the R1 so pretty straight forward, but the GPU looks quite different!
It hasnt got the 4 x screws holding the heatsink down, so not sure...

It looks like 4 clips, so you would probably have to take the motherboard out...then squeeze each clip to release the heatsink. Tried it once with a Asrock Ion 330 system..was not easy

..and the paste they used was super sticky..could not get it all of. So maybe AW has done the same.

The original psu is 180w...Dell also have a 240w, maybe that would help?
