EVGA 1080 FTW Overheating...?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So I just purchased a brand new EVGA 1080 FTW and it has essentially shut my computer down. Although, its a bit odd... it essentially turns my monitor off and seems like my computer is restarted but it stays on... just not functioning.

The thing that really scares me is that both times this has happened I've been played Dead by Daylight... which I doubt is a demanding game. Even if it is... I spent nearly $700 on this card and this isn't acceptable. I feel like my computer isn't stable.

I have everything on the card stock. NZXT h440 case, 1 rear exhaust fan, i7 6700k with a corsair AIO cooler... I have no idea what to do.

As I type this... the backplate on my card is pretty F'ing hot right now... Im running a few programs and a game in the background... but my computer is completely up to date. I'm at a loss and about to RMA this thing...?

Speccy states its currently running at 49C... its also making this noise thats hard to describe on and off almost like its not fully secure but it is... kind of like a loose case fan that when you tab it will sort itself out.

EDIT: Furmark score (showing temps/resolution) I think it should be noted that Im using a 3440x1440 monitor (LG UC88-B) connected via Display Port

You only have one rear exhaust fan for your whole case in this scorching heat?

Its not just because of that, I mean my computer is literally running steam (no games) 4 chrome tabs, and discord and the backplate is seriously hot... I even have my entire side panel off. Its not a case fan issue

Install either Afterburner or PrecisionX and create a custom fan profile. Then see what your temps are like.

Well I have precision, creating a custom fan profile may handle some of the issue but at the end of the day whatever is happening now... shouldn't happen. Could it possibly be an issue with my 3440x1440 monitor and Display Port cable?

Have you checked to see if the fans on the card are running?

Yessir, the fans work fine. They don't move under load at all... when it has reset the GPU was running at load, with the fans spinning yes.

Who knows then maybe they forgot to put paste on the GPU or something. I dont have mine yet but I don't think the back should be getting that hot. I would probably contact EVGA.

So what's the gpu temp in game?

I'm not real sure how to monitor my temperatures in game, is there an overlay I can install?

Upon reading this forum it seems fairly common.. but no resolution?
