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?
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.
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.
