  1. well is the gpu 99 or 80c? at 99 i would think it would throttle.
  2. that is very hot, make sure you have good airflow in your case with an intake fan at the front and outlet at the back.

    is the card a slot style reference card, just looks like a rectangle of plastic with an impeller at one end?
  3. did you mean cpu for the second temp of 80c?

    At load it is 99C but when whenever im just playing it is at 80C
  5. 80-99C is too hot. It may be within the engineered limits for this card, but excessive heat over time will cause early failure.

    Check for proper contact between the cooler and GPU core
    Check for dust buildup on the GPU heatsink
    Check that the GPU fan is spinning up properly under load (* IE: NOT on manual fan control but automatic/PWM so it spins faster when hot)
    Check operating temps with the case side cover off to see if case ventilation is the issue
  6. That's too hot indeed, i would RMA it as it's a new card i suppose?

    Assuming it's not an airflow issue

    i got the whole pc like couple days ago and with 2 fans at 100% speed and the gpu core at load is like 95C, thoughts on this? and by 95C i mean when im playingf bf3 at ultra
  8. i would RMA it and get a new one 95 is far too hot to keep your gpu running at considering it is new.

    im guessing your card is like this http://i56.tinypic.com/vpyu0h.jpg try to never get cards like these, they run terribly hot.

    yes it is that kind but could´nt i get two more fans and put it in front of the gpu? would´nt that also be a alternative?
  10. no the cooling on the cards is just terrible, especially if the thermal compound was a bad job, i think the thermal compound on yours was a bad job by the look of the temperatures, since its in RMA period it would be better to get it replaced.

    So even if i get 2 fans would´nt it be better? , do you prefer asus for card?
  12. well for now try using a fan or two to blow more air onto the card but i do not believe it will make a difference.

    this one does look good if you can find one locally http://www.transparent-uk.com/asus-pci-e-n-geforce-gtx-760-directcu-ii-oc-2gb.html?gclid=CKbgtKvg67gCFVMetAodL3sAzw

    So should i return this and get a new card like asus or msi?
  14. yeah i would return it and get a card with a cooler similar to that asus one.

    or even the asus card itself, it is a good card.

    But the thing i have used it already it is in my pc right now, will they still accept it. btw i live in sweden
  16. Best answer
    yes they will accept it because its faulty, running that hot is not right it can kill the card.
