My GTX660 is overheating!

My graphicscard (GTX660) seems to be overheating... This started to happen when i installed a Samsung SSD into my computer.

At first the temps went all the way up to 90 - 100 degrees (C) when gaming and about 50 - 60 when idling. I sent my GPU back to the ones I bought it from to test it but there was nothing wrong with it.

Then i sent my whole PC to a PC Service and and they tested it and said that there probably were something wrong with the motherboard, so I got a new motherboard and now it runs much cooler but still not as cold as it did before I installed the SSD. Now it runs about 50 - 70 when gaming and 32 when idling.

If anyone know what's wrong, please answere me here! ;)

Here is my hardware:

GPU: GTX660 (Asus)
CPU: Intel i5
PSU: Cooler Master B600
Old Mobo: MSI H61M P31
New Mobo: Asus B75M-A
SSD: Samsung 840 evo 250 GB
OS: Windows 8.1
Chassi: NZXT Phantom

Sorry for my bad english.
Thanks! :)

    50-70 is really normal for gaming :). h61m boards are the weakest cheap boards to go with. a b75m is much better :).

    Is 80 degrees also safe? Because when i played Kerbal Space Program it went all the way up there.

    Btw thanks for the quick reply!
  3. thats ok the gtx 660's max temp is 95c make sure you dont exceed 95c. if around 80c you're fine.

    MSI H61M P31 has lots of complaints and most Reviewers had a similiar statement
    lots of problems
    lacks expansion slot
    badly engineered

    Ok, thanks! :)
  6. Keep an eye on it though, this seems very odd behaviour. MSI afterburner will do a wonderful job of plotting graphs of temperature vs fan speed vs GPU load.
