Asus GTX 1070 Turbo temp issues? Maybe?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So thing is, I got this rig set up:

Case Silverstone RVZ02 - For those who doesnt know, its an ITX case with separate compartments for the GPU and the other components. Set up in Vertical Configuration. And it has no case fans.

GPU Asus GTX 1070 Turbo - A reference blower card (cheapest GTX 1070 card you can get).

CPU i5 6500 + Noctua L9i

Those are the important specs regarding this question.

My CPU temps are fine, never going above 70, maxing at 69 Celcius.

But, under gaming load, my GTX 1070 does go up to 89 degrees. Sure, I am in a pretty warm country (Singapore) and am planning to bring this rig to the UK. But, considering I am running this rig in an air-conditioned room at 23 degrees Celcius, it seems a tad high.

I did some investigations and found that removing the dust filtered case cover for the GPU portion reduces temps by 3 degrees to 86. Still, not good enough for me.
Then I ran afterburner to see if it was throttling.

And I realised that the card kept showing a consistent core clock of 1810Mhz under gaming load, but the card was advertised as 1683Mhz with the Boost Clock activated.
Is Afterburner showing the wrong information? or am I just missing something here? because I am wondering if that was the reason for the high temps.

And any idea if an axial fan GPU will provide better temps than this blower style card?

Thanks for the help! smile.gif

ADDED NOTE:

My GPU idles at 35 degrees. Thought I should just put that in. smile.gif

What does the fan speed climb to when it creeps up to 89*?

Open air > blower style gpu according to the rvz02 manual & silverstone rep, but no idea better by how much

From what I can tell most the reference and founders edition cards will run between 80-85*c when gaming for any decent period of time. Seems like the design of your case, in combination with card are leading to the temps you're seeing. While it may not be an issue if the card isnt hitting its thermal limits, you may want to look into somehow adding a fan into the case or even go so far as getting a case with better cooling. In the mean time, you could place a room fan blowing into the side of the case and see if that helps. Sorry I cant be of much further help.

Thanks guys! +repped.

This is a pretty annoying dilemma tbh. Cos if I use open air cards, the heat will circulate around the GPU compartment, and potentially affect the SSD and HDD located behind the GPU panel. Not sure if that will be an issue with the SSD and HDD health.

I did try running Overwatch with the GPU open (removed the case covering the GPU) and temps peaked at 80 degrees. So, I know there is nothing wrong with the GPU itself.

I did try and install a GTX 780 Palit Jetstream I have on hand to see if the temps will be better with open air cards, but alas, it is too thick to work with the case closed.

Any inputs regarding the SSD and HDD health will be appreciated. biggrin.gif
