That looks like more than 4 slots to me.

Still pretty cool though, to get mid 40's for air-cooled temps. That's custom water-cooling territory.

I'm still concerned about my VRM temps, they are hitting 96c.

This is completely stock, Stock fan profile, no oc, they never were this high before.

If you're up to it, apply new thermal pads (recommend fujipoly) or try RMA if still under warranty. It's likely your RMA will be denied because these are designed to handle up to 120C.

I still have warranty until July this year.
I tested something just before, I sat a 140mm Noctua fan on the back of the card blowing up, temps dropped BIG TIME.

This is with a 100mhz OC, 120% power.

Just waiting on the next model RTX cards to come out, they aren't worth it now.

That's just how your card is designed. Sadly it seems whom ever made the cooler for your card came with a rather poor VRM cooling design but that is still typical operating temps for an air cooled 1080 Ti. It's not uncommon at all to see vrm temps in the 100-115c range for stock air cooled 1080 Ti's. Like I said, roughly +30c over your card's temps. So 70c core temps = 100c VRM temps = normal operating parameters. You can contact support for whom ever made your card if it's within warranty and see what they say. But they will most likely just reply and tell you it's normal for your card and deny an RMA request.

It's the ROG Strix version.
First time I've actually had cooling issues with them, I knew the VRM's ran a little warmer than some of the other brands thanks to the Guru3D review, they had 82c when overclocked.

The little fan trick (up above) lowered the temps well.
Hitting GPU 71c VRM 89c with a good overclock on a stock fan curve, custom curve lowers it a lot more..

Oh it's summer here down under BTW...

turn the fan on the backside around, so it blows on the backlate^^
Looks like it sucks from the plate. + Add a bit of space between plate and fan. That should improve the perfomrence even more

My thought was because there's holes cut in the backplate over the VRM's with no thermal pad connecting them to the metal backplate, sucking the hot air out from under the back plate would be better.

But now thinking about it blowing the cool air that's coming from the front intakes through the back of the card might work better, I'll try it out soon.

@schoolofmonkey

gigabyte aorus and msi gaming x have better temps then the strix, in vrm area, aorus being best of the three and strix has the worst. your temps are within card spec, if u take a look of review from kitguru, his vrm temps were 85c, in open test bench i believe, so your being 5-6c hotter is fine i guess. however yes it could be better. if you are worried for lifespan of ur card, take a look of this video where its explained in detail when you should worry about vrm temps.

btw strix backplate has no purpose in cooling what so ever, its just for the looks, thats why they cut holes for those chips that get hot, to get some breathing area. i know my ek back plate on strix gets somewhere between warm and hot to touch when card is pushed hard. even on water block vrm's can get ''hot'' if you overclock to the limit and put card on heavy load, i know mine can get up to 48-49c in such scenarios, on profile i run for daily use, vrms max out at around 41-44c max
