Gpu temp seems high

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have a gtx460 evga gpu card folding 24/7, the temps run about 99c all day long fan is at 100 percent all the time should I be worried about this or is this normal for the card. The card is at stock setting 720/1440/1800. The only reason I am asking is because all of my gts450 run about 60-70c.

That's way high for a 460. Is it hot in the room? Is the case well ventilated? Is the cooler properly seated? Is the fan working?

Something is definitely wrong there. Make sure the fan is actually spinning, and make sure the heatsink isn't full of dust bunnies.

There are several threads on the eVGA forums about their GTX460 cards (most notably the EE versions) overheating, although eVGA refuses to admit the problem, and has actually told me personally more than once there are no problems.

@behappy,

I wish you the best of luck with your RMA, as the replacement card I received was actually worse.

This sucks, I should of not gone with the gtx 460, the first time I got this card I got a galaxys 460 ge edition and within one week of folding the fan started acting up and making really loud noise and running slow. I took the card back and paid 80 bucks more for the evga gtx460 now 2 months after folding the card is overheating thinking about selling this card and getting maybe something newer.

Re-apply the thermal paste. If the fan is at 100%, even if ambient is 50C, this card should not be that hot.

Also it could have acumulated lots of dust, which is my bet If the dust gets stuck in the fins of the heatsink near the fan, its like the fan doesn't run at all, even if its at 100%, because the fins get no airflow..

I will tell you that I did all of that, several times on three cards, to no avail.

Of course, if the OP wants to give it a try, it could not hurt, I suppose.

The card is only 2 months old, I have ran compressed air over the heatsink and I have removed all of thermial paste from the manufacture seating of the heatsink. I have used artic silver paste and reseated the heatsink twice with no change to temps. Card is sol.
