ASUS GTX 560 TI - Temperature Question

Greetings all -

Recently rebuily my PC with some new components, and I bought a Asus GTX560 Ti DirectCU II TOP video card.

My question is this, when I run FurMark burn-in until the temps saturate on my PC, the temp of my GPU is about 81 C.

Why is this so much higher than the review written here on this site?

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-560-ti-roundup-asus-engtx560-graphics-card-overclocking,2858-20.html

It shows 49 C for this card when running Furmark, why is mine so much higher? Note my card runs about 26 at idle.

If any are curious, here's a link for the specs of my system:

81 C is not enough to damage the card, but curious why mine is 30+ degrees hotter than this review. My chassis is Corsair Carbide 400R, and I have 3 inlet fans and 2 exhaust fans (plenty of airflow).

Thanks for your time,
Lane

  1. Try opening the door of the case(or take it off) and see what your temps are like then.
  2. If you still haven't tried, and your fan is still at auto, just try to raise your fan speed a bit higher or create a good fan profile using MSI Afterburner and check again.
  3. good lord I have the same model as you, I have it highly oc'ed and temps never go above 70c, you must have a weak fan profile is what im thinking, also you probably have bad case airflow, with these two factors at work I can see you temps getting like that
  4. His case seems like it would have good enough airflow.It's got x2 120mm's for front intake and a rear 120mm exhaust.Of course their are a few other fan mounts on the side and the top.I suggest you populate those if you can.
  5. I still think it's a little odd that it's that high.It's DirectCU.Their one of the best aftermarket heatsinks on the market.
  6. I ran OCCT's GPU test on the Asus TOP Cu overclocked to 1000Mhz and I see 81C w/ one card and 82C in SLI on Son No. 3's box.....fans on stock speeds. Antec DF-85 w/ CP-850, 2600k OC's to 4.8 Ghz.

    I still intend to go back one day and retest as in my experience, the temps improve over the 1st month or so.
  7. ^you mean once its "burned in" ... so your saying there is some truth to that?
  8. Yah.Actually for me temps were a litte higher for me the first week or 2 when using Arctic Silver.After the curing period though the temps were really good.
  9. I think I saw a similar result when I used artic silver to mount my hyper 212+ a while back
