When I play games on my PC, my gpu gets quite warm. I have one intake fan on the top of my case, which the air from it hits my GPU spot on, and it also helps my CPU a ton, and I have the rear exhaust. But my GPU is hitting around 77°C when I play battlefield 3. I don't want to test it on more demanding games because I'm too scared to damage it. Is that an ok temp? I've read about people with my exact same setup only getting it to 60°C under full load. Also if it helps anyone answer, I have an fx 8350 with the stock cooler on it. Would that also be an underlying cause?

dude it varies on your loc. you might be on a humid country btw what is your room temp?
make sure the case you're using have a good airflow, if you have an intake cooler you should add out take fans at the back of you cpu to release heat generated by the gpu/ cpu

btw 77 is fair enough since your case cant release it quickly. and besides the threshold of your gpu before it throttles down is @ 95c, my advice is try to utilize msi after burner and set a fan speed for a specific temp
ex if your gpu is @ 60 deg. celcius, increase fan speed to 55-60 percent. the only draw back would be the noise coming from the twin frozr

77'c is perfectly normal on that card, especially if your case doesnt have good airflow.

I live in Nevada, and it gets pretty hot here. I have my PC on a table near my patio door and I leave the screen door shut. It gets pretty windy here so it's about 70-80F with the wind. I have an exhaust fan on the back of my case, and intake at the top pointing down right at the GPU. It's also helped my fx 8350 having intake on the top, and I'm leaving that there until I get my 212 in a few days.

Today, I noticed that when I put it on oc mode with the MSI app, it's cooler about 7°C, but when I play watch dogs, it went up to 82°C according to HWMonitor. I'm terrified of losing my baby :(  I have the cougar solution steel case, and I believe it's good on airflow? I'm too poor to afford any more fans at the moment.

man if youre playing gpu intensive games with that room temp u should set the fan speed of your gpu to 80-90 or even a hundred if needed till you get the high performance case fans

Yeah, it's a budget case I'm using until I can get a better one. Bit I summer adding more fans will help. Think the 212 would help when a little bit? Also, I still need to set up my air conditioning.

Ramping up the fans to 80 or 90 isn't going to ruin anything in the long haul, is it?

if youre concerned about the wear and tear of the fans that comes with the gpu man i cant assure you it freaks me out aswell. in case thatll happen i will need to buy an aftermarket cooler for it. but since its a military class card. dude i can assure you itll last long enough till the games you play requires a much higher gpu. set it to max when youre gaming and when youre doing normal stuff (non-gaming stuff) just set it to 30 or 40. i hope thall help

I really appreciate your input, man. I went into afterburner, and set the fans to 70 at 60 degrees C and 90 at 70 degrees C. I also only play games using the GeForce optimized settings. Watch Dogs is almost set to completely ultra, and now my gpu is maxing at 67 degrees C under full load.

Thank you again, and I'm hoping that my 212 EVO will help a tiny bit before I can get some more fans.
