So basically I wrote a post not to long ago how my Gtx 670 has load temps from 90-100c, however On precision x the fan speed was set to auto.

If i turn up the fan speed to 70% my temperature would range from 81-84 C and I believe this is normal.

Not to mention it is pretty hot where I am.

When I first turn on my pc my idle temp is 36 C then within a few mins it would jump to 50, when the fan speed was set at 70 % the idle was 46 C.

Should I continue RMAing my card? :p

Yes RMA it isnt EVGA uprading owners to the FTW model. 90 degrees is way to high do you have a custom fan curve in place? Stay away from Furmark!

Is your case providing adequate airflow? Do you have other pci-e/pci slots occupied that may be blocking the heatsink of your graphics adapter?

If you live in a warm climate, you need to have more fans than normal. How many fan intake and exhausts do you have?

And you should never need a custom fan profile to keep a card under 100C. That's just insane.

Coolio, glad it worked out for you. Maybe someone was sleeping on the job that day, didn't apply paste or secure the HS properly :p

hmmm.. I ordered the gtx 670 on launch date so maybe there the cards were sold without thermal paste just like the Sc cards were defective and weren't tested

because I read online how people with EVGA gtx 670's have to put their fan up to 70% to reach 82c.
