Hi,

I have a Zotac 670 GTX and i get around 80-85C for most games(Crysis 3, BF3, tomb raider) on high settings on 1080p. I use MSI afterburner to set the fan speed @75%

I use coolermaster storm enforcer cabinet with 200mm fans (1 in front and 1 on top) and 120 mm at the back.

The CPU has stock cooler.

My room temp is around 25-30C

Should i be concerned about the temperatures.
I have gone through a lot of forums but haven't found a satisfactory answer.

Thanks in advance

85c is alittle hotter then it should be. It is a few degrees from being a danger.
Although your room is really hot.

I agree that's pretty hot it shouldn't be that hot anything over 75c isn't good.

I know the max temp for the card is 97C, but does playing for good 3-4 hrs effect the card's health??
Should i ask for a replacement....? My games never crash and using the lastest drivers.

A replacement may not help. Honestly, running it at 80-85c any time when gaming wouldn't be my first choice but your options may be limited.

Some ideas are:
Add another case fan (I do not know if this is possible or not)
Run the cards fans at 100% (I know this would be loud and annoying)
Get an aftermarket GPU cooler (Can be risky to replace and may void warranty)
Replace the GPU with one with better cooler (Can be hard to find and expensive)
Cool your room (May not be practical)
Underclock your GPU (And lose performance)

The problem is each option has a down side.

I cant add any more fans in the current set up. Even if i manage to get a fan on the side, i doubt if it is going to help.

I think the main problem is the room temperature.
I have a lot of warranty left on the card, so i don't really feel like voiding it.

I will probably sell this card and get MSI GTX 670 Twin Frozr IV or ASUS with 2 coolers.
Because with these temperatures i can barely think of SLI.

Thanks anyways..:)

I think buying a card with better aftermarket cooling like the twin frozr will work if you can sell your current card for a reasonable price.

Don't worry. You are far from overheating your card, and those temperatures in a hot room near the equator.... they're pretty good. Turn off your temperature monitor and leave the fans on Auto... problem solved.

People tend to over-emphasize GPU temperatures after checking reviews. But you have to keep in mind that most reviewers use an open test bench which will be much cooler than an enclosed PC case. Others here on the forums have custom cooled video cards inside real nice cases with high airflow and multiple fans and so they expect everyone to be running cooler.

Bottom line: Mid-80c's is spot on normal for a reference GTX 670.

Those temp are just fine.My gtx 670 also reaches up to 86c in the hottest day while playing crysis3 MP with vsync off 100 plus frames.lol
Using Vsync in games will keep you temp under 80.Nvidia website clearly says 97c is max temp.

Don't expect temp you see in review.Most reviews are done in European and american countries with sub 20 ambient temp.

yes, but with vsync on, there is a performance drop. You are right about the reviews done in sub 20C ambient temp.
