GTX 780 Overheating above 95c.

Hi... I purchased gtx 780. Normally when gaming it levels off around 80c.

Recently I had to transport my computer. And since then while gaming card goes all the way upto 95c I had to stop playing to avoid any damage.

Also the fan doesn't push it self. It always stays at 37% which might be the issue.

I have HAF 932 cabinet so airflow issue of out of the box. At least I feel so... I made sure all fans are running in the direction they are supposed to.

Now I came up with a workaround using MSI Afterburner to restrict it at 79c. That way it doesn't overheat. By increasing the fan speed.

The graphics card is supposed to auto throttle the fan speed in general.

So is the graphics card somehow damaged so that it can't regulate the fan speed? I never overclocked it.

Please help me out.

Have you tried to reseat the card into the slot?

Ah no... During the transportation graphics card was in my bag... Its was not connected. I had it wrapped in the soft cushions. I'll try the reseating part when I go home..

Make sure you seat the card perfectly into the slot and reset the BIOS.

is the fan set to auto in afterburner, i've had situations where afterburner has randomly locked onto manual, so it just sits on whatever percentage it was on.

I don't recall but I vaguely remember the auto button has green light. I'll cross check..

Well I played a game packed my computer .. Unpacked it and played the same game again... I didn't change any settings. Before transportation it was all fine.. Now I just have the heating issue.. Other than that games run just fine..

Yeah it's spinning.. I can manually ramp it up using afterburner. Which I did yesterday to temporarily fix the overheating issue

Auto Mode should have already resolved the temperature issue. Just reseat the card and load optimized defaults in the BIOS... when you get back home.

Thanks a lot.. Reseating Helped. I didnt even have to reset the BIOS. I reset the MSI Afterburner settings to default and played the game. And the moment it hit 81c the Fan speed throttled up. and Temps were down to 75-79c.

Simple yet Effective solution.! :D  .. Oh and also this time. I changed the power cables to a different ones. which i rem'br using earlier.

It's very nice to hear that reseating solved the issue.

All you have to do now is 'have non-stop fun' :p
