Should I increase the fan speed on my GTX 670 FTW?

Title says it all pretty much. I unplugged everything from my PC and opened my case and touched the GPU and it was quite hot, I'm thinking it's not normal? So assuming it isn't (not sure) my fan speed is at 30%-40% in EVGA Precision X so should I increase it?

  1. What is the temperature in Afterburner or GPU-Z say? If it's under 80C under load, below 40C idle, you will be fine, even the EVGA GTX 670 FTW box says not to touch the GPU when it's hot.

    Here is a screenshot, I was watching a movie thus the 40C temp. reading, you will be fine if idle is below this. I also have the EVGA GTX 670 FTW

  2. While you can turn up the fan speed, I also recommend cable management if you haven't done so already, also making sure cool air is flowing freely in your case, no blocked fans.

    Well all fans are good except for 2 that are positioned like that by case design itself, they're right next to the HDD cages.

    Anyways, the only reason I was wondering if I should turn the speed up is because that one time I touched the GPU right after unplugging and opening the case. If it's normal for it to be hot after unplugging and openeing the case then it's fine.
  4. Well, you need some actual numbers, you can use GPU-Z or MSI Afterburner. If it's at 70-80 degrees Celsius it's okay.
  5. It's idle now. According to GPU-Z it's at 40C-41C with fan speed at ~1050 RPM. That's odd cause in EVGA Precision earlier idle it was reporting 38C. I just finished watching a ton of YouTube videos though.

    I'm getting a new intake fan for the front of the case if it matters.
  6. Bump, went to 2nd page.

    It goes to 55C when gaming, playing Team Fortress 2 all settings maxed. This is with the new intake fan so everything looks good?

    Yep, that's a very cool card.
  8. I forgot to add, 35% fan speed and ~1,150 RPM.

    Ok, thanks fantastik and El Tigre :D
  9. No problem :)
