Bring Down My R7-260X Temps

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so I have a MSI R7-260X OC edition GPU and was just wondering with the below details: Should I lower the Power Limit in MSI Afterburner from say 0% (Default) to Idk.. -5 or -10?

In games such as CSGO my card under load will sit at 99c with 100% fan speed (have a fan curve profile, basically 100% once it's at 90c), which then causes my core clock to decrease (to prevent the GPU from going over 100c I assume). Now I take it lowering my power limit will lower the performance slightly, but is that a better idea than having it constantly sit at 100c while gaming/load and having it downclock?

Thanks in advance! thumb.gif

How old is card? Is the fan spinning? There is no way it be hitting 99c unless something is really wrong.

If its a new card or under warranty I would send it back or get an rma.

About 2-3 years I believe, fan spinning. I've been reading up and a lot say theirs has gone to the 90's so I think there's deff a way.

EDIT: It's also only like this when in CSGO/Overwatch 100% load, idles at 45c and many other gaming sessions (even while streaming) will usually not go into the 90's.

Small update: Cleaned out the fan, which was really nothing as I had tried this recently. I put a fan from the top of my case on the side which now blows on the GPU's side. Also, the 6pin GPU connector was pretty dusty in the connection so I took care of that.

So far hasn't been above 80c but also haven't gamed much and the ambient temp has dropped a bit since mid-day. Will check back soon. wink.gif

99c is bad for pretty much every modern gpu and 45c idle sounds high for such a low power chip. Whats you ambient temps?

I'd also recommend reapplying your thermal paste and cleaning out the heatsink. In afterburner have you set a custom fan profile and physically heard the fan ramp up?

My room is pretty hot this week (summer's consequences lol) but talking around I'm being told my idle temps are fine (usually 30-40 now), ingame hasn't gone over 75c yet and reading up max temp for this GPU I'm seeing a lot hit 80's and some even hit 90's once in a while so I think I'm doing alright now? Also I was going to apply thermal paste but it voids the warranty and I still have mine I found out. So gonna see if it idles 30-40 and doesn't go over 80 under load, otherwise I'll RMA. wink.gif

EDIT: And yes I have a fan curve which I believe made that idle temp a bit high, just the problem was before when it'd be 100% and still reach that crazy temp. mad.gif My fan speed hasn't even hit 90% / 75c yet though so I'm thinking either the side case fan is helping or the connection was just not fully mounted/dust was in the pins.

Removing the cooler and cleaning it should not void your warranty with msi as far as I know. I would just email them and say you want to clean the gpu because it's overheating and throttling. Using the correct amount no better tim should net you a nice drop in temps. I'm glad to see the side case fan seems to be helping though, and you might try switching it from intake to exhaust or vice versa.

One screw on the GPU has a sticker that says "void if removed", but I will ask them in support if it comes down to it. Right now it's pretty much as hot as a room can get in the summer and haven't went above 76c or used 100% of my GPU fan (I have it curved to 100% @ 80c) so I think all is well. thumb.gif

Most of the time that does not apply in US and a few other places, with venders like xfx ect. Email them if your worried about it.

My old R7 260X never pass 70C * Furmark idle temp around ambient +1-4C.
With custom fan settings 75% not pass 60C.


Probably thermal compound degrade.
