GTX 590 WoT Over-heating

Hey guys,

I have recently re-started playing World of Tanks(no advertising intended), I'm an old(beta) player and a friend suggested that we should give it another go. While playing it I noticed the card's fan going full-speed. I didn't really give it any thought and just ignored it, yesterday I cleaned my PC thoroughly.

I started up World of Tanks(no advertising intended) and there it goes again, the fan full speed. I exit full screen and run up PrecisionX and to no surprise, the temperature was 90*C. I have looked it up on the internet and other people had similar issues with WoT, but those threads were 2 years old.

So now I'm here, what am I supposed to do? I'm pretty sure 90*C is high, even for the 590. I'd like to mention that I tried lowering the settings to the lowest the game allows, still over-heats so it's not a performance issue.

Here's my CPU-Z link for exact info: http://valid.canardpc.com/2787788

I'd also like to state that I'm running Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. I'm still playing the game but I try to make pauses every 5 games out of fear, I mean .. I'd appreciate a quick answer.

Thanks,
Alex.

Enable vsync in nvidia control panel. Temperatures should come down immediately. The GPU is rendering frames too quickly and so basically running at full despite the low graphics requirement. Hence why turning graphics down did not help.

I set it on "On", click "Apply" and after I enter World of Tanks it automatically resets to "Used global setting(Use the 3D Application setting)". Still over-heating.

Create a Program Setting in the Nvidia Control Panel. Add WoT to the list of Programs if necessary. Enable "Adaptive VSync", hit apply, and then try the game.

Yes, I do that.



Than I start World of Tanks and it resets to letting the application decide. (It also didn't apply it cause it still overheats)

So do you have a VSync option in the game settings? If so, enable it.
Are you using the latest drivers from the Nvidia website?

Okay, next step is to see what's happening in game with your core temps, fan speeds, core clocks, and FPS, etc. Hopefully, you are staying right at 60 FPS in game with VSync On.

Fan speed is being controlled by PrecisionX, temp is around 85*C but it goes as high as 92*C, core clocks you can see in the link in the first post.

And yes I'm holding a 60-63fps with vsync on.

Now you shouldn't be going above 60 FPS at all if Adaptive VSync is on. The other issue is that, believe it or not, 92c, while a tad too high really isn't that unusual for dual GPU Fermi's. The issue is your fans running at 100%. Can you confirm the % rate your fans are running when gaming at that temperature?

I'm using a software (evga PrecisionX) to speed-up my fans so the temperature is held low(not working) and I've been reading around and people seemed to agree that anything over 80*C is basically roasting the card. I mean I play around 5 hours a day, 5hours at 92*C?

That CPU-Z screenshot in your first post indicates your GPU is at 850 MHz, but it also indicates that is the speed on GPU 1 which is your Intel on-board graphics. Can you confirm your core speed on your GTX 590? Default is 613 MHz.

I'm checking reviews and mid-80c is common. Most reviews use an open test bench, so temps are cooler than they would be with an enclosed case. I have a GTX 580 and 88-89c is standard with fans on Auto in the mid-70% range.

607Mhz is my core speed, out of the box.

The thing is that I played higher end games, from BF3 to Crysis 3 and it never went 92*C.

That's a good sign, at least you know your video card isn't defective. Have you cleaned the dust out of your case lately?

What is your GPU usage % when playing WoT at 60 FPS?

It doesn't show.(The PrecisionX) Any software I can use to determine that?

MSI Afterburner has a hardware monitor. I would assume Precision X has one as well. If not, try to install Afterburner and use the monitor while gaming.

I'm still confused that you were seeing FPS up to 63 with VSync On. Are you running a 120 hz monitor?

Nope, it's a 60mhz monitor. Perhaps I didn't word it properly, it mostly stayed on 60fps but it spiked occasionally as far as 63 for a second.

Here's my usage and temps while playing, the GPU1 fan speed is 0% because I only have 1 GPU fan, the GPU2fan speed was around 80%.(Un-modified, as configured by the driver)

I'm happy to announce that I disabled "Triple buffering" from the in-game settings and the temps are now holding at a steady 70*C. Thank you all for your help.
