Asus GTX 560Ti DCII

Hello guys,

I have an Asus GTX 560Ti DCII graphics card and I have it overclocked to 900Mhz with 1.025 core voltage. I have the fan speed set to auto on MSI afterburner and the idle temps stay from 37 to 39 degrees celcius and while playing games like Crysis or Witcher 2, the temps rise to 70 to 80 degrees.

I have read reviews of this card and according to those the temps are way too lower than what I am getting on my card. I have reseated the heatsink using Arctic Silver 5 as well just a month back but no difference.

Please help me out with this.

I have a Cooler master 430 case with 3 intakes and 2 exhausts.

  1. Try to put two fans intake and two ( three) outake and watch the temps after that.
    Front, bottom( side) intake , and rear, top outake.

    I found no difference with two intakes and two exhausts.
  3. Try to lower the voltage a little.

    tried lowering the voltage but the games crash. 900 mhz is stable only at 1.025. any other suggestions.
  5. Then maybe you should Lower your over clocking. You see, some cards over clock better than others. Same make it out of the nest before others. Not all GPU chips are made to mega overclock. I would say 850. try 850 with a lower voltage. Which edition do you have?, i have my GTX 560 ti DCII SLI'd with a reference cooler 560 ti and my temps are still better than yours with Max temps. But Idle is about the same but a little lower.

    As for the case air flow concern. Cases don't have the same Air Dynamics. They are all designed with different frame shapes and basically the chasis determines where your air is gonna move. Tho the fans blow the air, depending on the positioning of the parts will determine temps.

    Kepler cards will overclock a little better i would think

    Now I have setup a custom fan profile in MSI afterburner

    30 degrees - 40% fan speed
    40 " - 50%
    "
    "
    "
    60 degrees - 70% fan speed

    and now after setting up the fan profile, my temps while playing witcher 2 don't exceed 65 degrees Celsius. is it ok now or do I have to setup a different fan profile.
