GTX 480 VERY high temps

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hello all. A friend of mine has a gainward gtx 480 and he complained for having very high temps. I went and checked them out, and the card hit 109c with 100% fan and it could go even higher but i closed furmark. I mean, yes gtx 480 is a very hot card but that hot? I searched a bit and saw no one having that high temps. Does the card have a problem?
The case is a Coolermaster 690 II Advanced with 5 fans, and one fan blowing directly at the card.
In Greece there is no good cooler available for this card.
The card is dust-free.

Did he buy it used? It could be a crappy heatsink or a faulty fan. Rattling noises or any of the such?

It was bought new, no strange voices. Tech guys from the store said to bring it back (warranty) so they can take a look. He will probably return it.

Is that stock or with overclock?

The reason I ask is because you will be surprised at how much hotter these cards get once you add voltage.

If it has no extra voltage it's definitely too hot. If it's at stock, it looks like it may be over heating.

My card with stock cooling and 100% fan speed at stock clocks might hit 80C in Furmark but low 70s in everything else.

No overclock. When i wiped the dust from everything including the card and now i have : Idle: 2520rpm, 48c
Load (furmark): 5000rpm, 100c

That 100c frightens me, but ingame (homefront, metro 2033) it goes up to 87-95c
