GTX1080 Strix - awful temperatures and fan noise

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, my GTX1080 Strix is running extremely hot and loud - 83°C with 70% fan speed. Also the same VGA is running pretty cool in my friend's PC (70-75°C with 60% fan speed), so there must be something wrong with my PC.

My cooling:
Noctua D15 @ 1000RPM
exhaust: Noctua A15 PWM @ 1000RPM
Intake: 2x Noctua A14 PWM @ 900RPM
Case: Fractal Design Define R5


Any ideas why is my VGA running so hot in my computer? :/ I am clueless! Thanks..

Have you tried moving what ever is populating the pcie port below (sound card)?

Yeah, this would be my first move.

It didn't help at all. And yea, it is a sound card, Creative X-Fi Titanium HD.

what is your ambient temp?

22-25 °C..

EDIT: I am sorry, I was really sleepy xD.. 52-52 is my idle GPU temp.

Hm, looking at the fan setup you've posted, it might be a good idea to add another exhaust fan.
From looking at the picture, the STRIX cooler doesn't seem to be built to exhaust the hot air out of the case at the back and instead vents it at the sides inside the case (I could be wrong, just going by the looks here), which could lead to your issues, possibly combined with your case's air intake being more than your exhaust.
Maybe you could add some exhaust fans to the side panel right next to your video card, if it has any mounts for those.
Improving the general airflow by adding some additional intake fans on the bottom and some additional exhaust fans at the top of the case might help, too, but you'd have to see what works best for you. It might be a good idea to and keep the intake and exhaust air volume approximately the same, maybe be a slight bit higher on the exhaust side of things.

Yea, I have added two 14cm fans, one for intake on the botton and one for exhaust on the side panel. Temperature went down a little bit, from 82-83 °C to 79-80 °C but it is still nothing like in the reviews and user posts. I bought Strix because of the cooler.. I could have just bought Titan X with stock cooler and have the same temperatures with much higher performance.. mad.gif

I can't open it and reapply thermal compound because of the warranty sticker so I have to make my "fake" warranty sticker first.. tongue.gif This will probably be my last ASUS non-reference card.

Those temperature issues are weird considering your initial aircooling setup. I would have personnally put everything on PWM with similar speed by temp (CPU bound, because I'm lazy), with a difference of 100RPM each (faster on the front intake fans, then the CPU cooler, then the exhaust). Wouldn't add exhaust fans tho, as it would probably mean negative pressure and perturbed front-to-back airflow.

Did you try to remove the PCI slots caches? Did you try to make the front fan speed at 1000 and the CPU cooler and the back fan 900RPM?

Also, did you touch the GTX1080 fan curb in any program? I used to tinker with MSI Afterburner but went back to stock fan settings for my GTX980 with the Asus GPU Tweak...

Last, have you compared your GPU temp with benchmarks ? On what program do your GPU get those temps? Because 10° at your friend's home might look like a huge difference, but if it was tested with another program or game, and if it was in a case with 6 industrial Delta fans blowing at 3000RPM directly under your GPU, it might explain the difference biggrin.gif



(I stole all those ideas, including @doyll advices, really)

Try increasing core clock as much as you can, while simultaneously lowering power limit. That should overclock and undervolt your card.
