Anyone in here own a rtx 2060?

A bit bummed about temps on the founders card, 78c is hottest ive seen it get but thats about 6c higher than any temps ive seen reported by all the review sites. I have an x62 as an intake and two 120mm fans as exhaust, i even set my x62 fans to sit at 1250 rpm (75%) so the GPU gets more airflow (i can feel the air with my hand behind the radiator).

Obviously 78c isnt dangerous or anything, but it doesnt leave much room for OC unless i crank the fans up.

I've seen alot of setups here with AIO cooler and some only with AIR Fans.How is the temp of your CPU and GPU?


My temp is quite bad.CPU 83c and GPU 83c with side panel on.With side panel off the temp drop around 10c.


please advise on which parts to change and what to buy.
Those temps are ok nothing dangerous, you could upgrade to a water cooler (you can buy 240mm aio's for like 60 bucks these days) but your GPU isnt much you can do as msi armor model is lower end. High temps ya, but dangerous no.

Hello there, lothbroki!

For the S340 and the gpu cooler type that you have (open-air style), a front mounted aio is objectively best. Here's a video explaining the different cpu cooler/gpu configurations, along with tests showing the thermal results:


A lot of ppl seem surprised about the results because common sense says not to blow hot radiator air into your case. But as the results show, what's actually happening isn't nearly as dramatic as our mind imagines. Evidence outweighs common sense.

I was in a similar situation as you, looking to possibly buy an aio for my S340 rig. While many ppl seem to be happy with Corsair's and NZXT's offerings, I wanted something serviceable... I like changing out the liquid and being able to make sure everything is in good order every few months. That's just me being an enthusiast..and anal lol. So, I went with the "be quiet! Silent Loop 120mm"--which has removable fittings--then replaced the radiator with a 280mm one from Hardware Labs (had best reviews at the time of purchase), 2 Cougar Vortex 140mm fans, PrimoChill clear tubing, and 4 nice 45-degree Alphacool compression fittings.

All-in-all, with the S340 and an open-air style gpu, I definitely think a front mounted water-cooler is the way to go if you want to improve your thermals. You could do a full custom loop or get an aio. My choice was kind of in between and I'm very happy with it. But aios today seem to be very well received and are cake to set up, so you can't really go wrong. I hope everything turns out great! Take care!

EDIT: Oh, and my cpu temps are 31C idle and never over 68C under load. My gpu (an old GTX 760) runs at 35C idle, and up to 70C under load.

Does anyone know if any of these vertical GPU brackets will fit the s340 elite?

Im doing it just as much for temps as for looks, i think having the founders 2060 pointed upwards will help temps (as they exhaust most of the air near the lit up rtx logo). Currently its just spitting hot air directly into the TG side panel.

You'd have to mod it and remove the metal between each expansion slot for any of these to work properly. If you're willing to do that, they will fit.

If you aren't willing to mod, I believe the CableMod kit will work. I remember watching a Youtube review on it and it worked without modding a regular case that had the metal separators between each PCI slot.
