When doing just basic browsing the card runs at 42-50 Celsius and when playing it gets stuck at 82 Celsius. Is that too hot for the card? Thanks.

More about : 780 running hot

What vendor is it?

Have you blown the dust out of your case?

How old is the card? You should change out the thermal paste.

creating a custom fan profile in either msi afterburner or evga prescion helps. the fans are set to run lower, thus creating higher temps, so it is quieter. i dont find my 780 tis are very loud, even at fast speeds

Can you change the thermal paste of a gpu?
Anyway, it is an evga, the model with the one fan.
Yes there is no dust in it.
There is only one problem, there is only one fan and it is connected to the h60i.
Should I get more fans?

How do you do that?

82 is the temps that evga sets its max to. the fan will keep the card at 82. if you want a lower temp, but higher fan speed, create a custom fan profile like i stated above. i am running 2 of those cards in sli, without fan profile, they run at 82 all day long. with fan profile, top one is about 70, bottom is 68.

82 is NOT too hot, that is how they are set up. Max temp is 95

yeah that is higher than it should be. i would try adding some more case fans to improve your airflow. Before you spend money on fans though try removing the side panel of your case and point fan into your case and see if the temps drop at all. If they do then you know you need better airflow in your case.

That is the reference card, so normally it will be hotter.

In MSI after burner, go to settings>fan.
In there, you can change at what speed the fan will run at for which temperature. Try playing around with that for a while.

I'd have it at:

40=50% fan
60=75%
80=80%

Higher than 80% on most fans won't make it cooler, only shorten the fan's life.


And yes, you can change the thermal paste on a GPU. Make sure it is good paste though, and not some cheap one from radio shack.

NVIDIA cards max out and start to throttle at 80c. you never want to be running hotter than that. AMD cards max out and start to throttle in the 90c range.

I'm on my laptop right now, so I do not have access to fan control myself, but it should look like this:




Just click and drag the dots around.

I will install some more fans.

Posting a picture of your case too won't hurt. Take off the side so we can see the inside airflow.
