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.

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...

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.

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

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.

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