Overheating?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Recently I went from ATX to mATX in a LanBox case, (P5N-T Deluxe > P5Q-VM), and im a bit concerned about my new GFX temps
Idle: +-75C and load gets up to 90C+ and these are stock clocks.
To be honest I never really recalled high temps on the other board/case,
I only realized it was hot when I plugged in my USB Hard Drive at the back, nearly the entire back plate was hot to the touch. I have re-applied thermal paste to the GPU, and re-seated the Heatsink/Fan, and checked if the fan was perhaps failing and all is good. I also have the fan set to 100% in Riva.
I'm thinking the case ambient might be a bit to high, because my CPU is running stock speeds at 55C Idle, and up to 70C load, but that could be normal considering I was running watercooling in the other case so I dont actually know what this chip should be getting on air. but anyway....

AAAAaaaany ideas would be great!!

Stick a thermometer in there an see what you interior case temps are. I think you might find them to be high. If the card and cpu are both pulling higher temp (i know the water/air negates the cpu differences), I would think it may be due to poor airflow. I don't know how this would be changed by the smaller board, but it might have an affect. Might be time to break out the case modding tools... woo hoo

If you can, stick an extra case fan in there somewhere.

Are you sure you re-seated the cooler correctly? You can use Artic Silver 5 paste on GPU's. If not, get an aftermarket cooler. I can recommend one if you want.

Ok i'll see what I can do about extra fans, but I noticed when I took off the heatsink there were these sort of white pads on the ram chips... I just left those as is, and just put thermal paste on the GPU. Can I replace those pads with heat paste or what?
