11 days to rma - need advice gtx 580,pcb heat, superclock vs vanilla

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I got 10 days left to return my evga gtx 580 superclocked (have not overclocked). I'm a little concerned about heat. I'm wondering if I should get the vanilla version instead especially for fan noise..


Should the pcb be too hot to touch when gaming? (i mean the back of the card where there is no fan)

temps (same temps with side panel on/off) (max vid when gaming v1.082):
room temp around 25c
50c idle
88c BC2 and vietnam
88c metro
77/80c sc2
80c WoW (peaks at 88c)




system:
Tested in 2 cases (cm storm sniper and graphite 600t (max speed fan controller)
p7p55d-e pro
i7-870 with noctua D14
2x2gb ddr3
corsair hx850

temps are in a safe range but are def high. I would get a vanilla for the fact that overclocking yourself is easy and the fans wont be as loud. Who the hell wants a vaccum in their case when gaming.

Most ppl will say: well I wear headphones when gaming but seriously who can wear headphones for 3 hours?

How much money will you get back going to vanilla?

Mine is a stock card and the highest I think I have seen is right around 80c. On the back of the card I have measured as high as 157f or 70c at the GPU, most of the card is 120-140f or 48-60c. You would not want to touch 159f.

yea thanks guys, i thought so. I would save about $30usd going vanilla. I only bought it cause they didn't have vanilla in stock at amazon. Have to use amazon because of gift cards from xmas.

vanilla is just the regular "gtx 580" Right now I have a "evga gtx 580 superclocked" which is just a factory overclocked version.

Maybe you just need more airflow in your case. Kind of a waste to return it for heat issues. Though i say that's not very hot.

well poisoner i tried in 2 cases (storm sniper and graphite 600t) then I last tried with the side panel off in the 600t and still got the same temps with the air conditioner ON. And I even bought and installed the high flow bracket since day one.
