I got two Nvidia GTX 590's
and Ive been searching for new coolers for them as one has a drastic overheating problem and ideals at 115 and even opening a browser
causes the gpu to spike all the way to 140-150 range it was one of the orginal ASUS GTX590 models and a firmware issue causes it but seeing as how
Last time I tried to reflash the firmware one it destroyed the card and ASUS replaced it after a month of waiting.
So I figure Ill take the less of a pain route and go for a better cooler think someone can help me find one that will fit a GTX?

Also preferred not to be liquid cooling.

115c at idle, I suspect something else is causing a problem. Even reference design cooling would get nowhere near that.

Im stuck using the Cooler Master Elite cause I just moved to Norway I had a Rosewill Thor before only thing that did besides keep my parts cool was nuke anything plugged into the front USB.

I would have taken Thor with me but alas Jetblue no longer allows boxs as checked bagged on international flights.

I know the ASUS GTX590's have a massive overheating problem yesterday I gray Screened cause it got so bad.

Im worried it would happen again and not work after a reboot.

loading minecraft it jumps to 160F
loading Crome it jumps to 140F

If I didn't suck at modding Id install another 120mm fan to keep the other gpu cores cool.

xD its really bad the cable management is pretty garbage sense Im using a Mushking 1050 watt psu, and a raid of 5 SSDs there is no ventilation coming from the front.
Ill try and get a picture up later.

In this case, I highly doubt it.

It's F, not C. There's nothing to worry about with your current temps.

When I was going thru tech school I always considered 180F a bad area to go too which this jumps up to a lot, I just worry.

These cards can withstand up to 105C.

115 farenheit is about 41 celsius, which is pretty high for idle but not that unusual.
180f is 82c, which I will admit is pretty hot.

So you have a Cooelrmaster elite case, with bad cable management which you admit blocks the front airflow...
A new GPU cooler wont fix your problem I'm afraid. Without fresh air in the system, your temps wont improve.

And if you are uncomfortable installing a case fan, I dont think you should be installing aftermarket VGA heatsinks anyway, way more complicated than a case fan.

Guess I'll just have to hold out a month to get a full tower case again.
