Just got my Gtx 770, but should I be worried about this temperature?

I was playing Crysis 3 max setting MSAA x8 just now, and my gpu temperature went up to 89 degree Celsius after running around in big explosions for a few minutes.

Is this safe for the card?

It won't kill it right off, but they start to wear down at around 75-80 Celsius.
You can use a program like EVGA Precision to lower the temperature target and/or make a more aggressive fan curve.

I was just playing the same game with the same card and I got 69C with the temperature target at max with EVGA Precision. Though my card is Windforce one so I suppose that might be part of the reason mine didn't heat up more (The other reason being that I have the fan curve set up so that when it reaches high temperatures the fans spins much faster.)

Hey,

it's getting a bit on the hot side. What model exactly is your GTX 770? If it's a reference card you may consider buying some aftermarket cooler and installing it. If it already came with an aftermarket cooler then you will probably have to check your PC case airflow - make sure the cable management is good and that you have enough intake and exhaust fans.

If its the blower style fans,like this,those temps are only slightly high.

If its a non-standard heatsink+fan,it might be a good idea to take it off and replace the Thermal Paste,because those temps are pretty high for,example, a Twin Frozr 770.

In the end,your card should have a saftey shutdown around 90-95c.

Also,Custome Fan Profiles are your friend.

Yeah, its a twin frozr 770. My case is pretty small, so the airflow isn't so good.
When I had 760 installed, that card's temperature was always around 81 degrees during gaming.
So I thought 770 would also work. I will try the fan profile.

I see, so yeah airflow in the case is to blame. To be honest if you don't want to buy a new bigger case you may consider removing the side panels. I removed mine 3-4 years ago and still wonder why did I have to spend money on a PC case which I only use as a frame.

Removing the panels will render having any case fans pointless so I've disconnected mine - less power consumption (pff... haha) and less noise and much lower temps on all components.
The downside is you will have to clean the dust much more frequently than if your case was closed.

The card wouldn't allow itself to reach that temperature if it wasn't safe. My GTX 670's start throttling back on clock speed at 85°C. You just have to trust modern silicon...it can handle it.
