i'm actually newbie here so i dont know to much bout PC, so my problem here is that every times i launch game likes Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and come old games at MAX SETTING, My graphic card's temperature always above 95 degrees Celsius, even sometimes it can reach 102 degrees Celsius. i played using 1366x768 res. dont worry bout Fans, i have 4 fans, 1 front, 2 right, and 1 back, (i'm sorry my english's bad).

Is it because my Graphic Card is bottleneck ?

My spec :
Processor : AMD Athlon II X3 455
VGA : Nvidia GTX 560 TI
Mobo : ESC A880GM-AM3
RAM : DDR3 4 Gb run at 667


Please help me, i cant play game seriously if my Graphic card so hottt !

did you use auto fan profile or manually set the fan speed for your gpu?
November 16, 2012 4:10:33 AM

i already try both of them but no luck, it still too hot for playing games, what should i do ?

maybe your fan are faulty. when the gpu gets too hot normally the fan will spin faster and normally it can be heard if you were close enough to it. or you can manually increase the fan speed and try to heard the noise. if there is none that's a sign the fan is dying (because it can spin much faster). btw have you check the heat sink for dust?
November 16, 2012 4:30:02 AM

yes my fans are clean, i clean it every week, i just bought my GPU 2 months ago and before that, im using Radeon HD 6570 and it was never goes above 70 degrees Celsius while playing games,
i think my CPU to week to handle GTX 560 Ti, Right ?

might be a bit weak but it does not make your gpu overheating

And i don't read lol.

But I want to say that the cooler detached from the gpu... he should first take the cooler off and reapply thermal paste and reattach it... then if that doesn't help, then it's something that needs replacing probably.

You could consider returning your card if you don't want to start pulling it apart and risk losing the warrenty. If it's only 2 months old.

how about if i upgrade my CPU to Intel Core@i5 3570K, is there any chance my GPU run normally ?

nope. it's a gpu problem... not a cpu problem...

What ever you do, do not take it apart, especially if the warranty is still intact. Especially since its only two months old and we don't even know if thats the main issue. You could take it apart and put it back together and still have same issues.

I would recommend to use that warranty of yours and get a new one.

What is your power supply...?
Since weak and bad power supply can cause excessive heat to gpu..

Maybe you should reapply thermal pate to the GPU. Its the first thing i do when i get a GPU myself.

What size fans do you have on your case are the 120mm, 200mm, 80mm. I'm trying to get a picture of the issue here. I had a similar issue with a Corsair 600T was really squeezing air on my two 560ti's at the time and I was getting near 90 C.

Also, it could be the power supply. The 12V rail on your card only has a total of 31 amps. I would perhaps look into getting something of better quality. Maybe a Corsair TX series power supply.

I think if i reapply thermal paste, it will make my warranty break, any other advice ?

I would check with the manufacture before doing so just to be safe some companies are okay with you disassembling the card.

i have 120mm on back, 2 200mm on right and 80mm on front, i even try opened my chasing but no luck,

this problem started since i bought my new GPU card, :cry:  :cry:  :cry:

It could be a faulty card you should contact the manufacturer and get a replacement for it.

WTF....
Simbadda..??
:lol:  :lol:  :lol: 

AFAIK, this psu (simbadda) only sold in Indonesia
Man, this is the worst psu ever sold..
Even in the local forum curse this psu..
this psu designed ONLY for Pentium 4 class..

Get better psu..
Seasonic S12II Bronze 520 W is very good option..

Then you'll have to try it..:D 
Bad psu with no protection and horrible ripple and rail will make your gpu hotter than usual..

by the way, how much you believe that my PSU should really replaced, 80% ??? is it not because my CPU's weak ?
i though my GPU's so hot caused by a weak GPU, if i'm right, i would buy new one like i5 3570K,

Well, it's always nice to upgrade your CPU, but if it won't fix your heating issues then i'd place my money in a new PSU instead and get an i5 3570k later on.

Well just because you have a higher wattage psu doesn't mean that you are running that amount of power. Think of it more like a gas tank. The more you have the more you can use. If you speed you will end up using more :p

i believe 100% that you MUST replace your PSU..

Have you ever heard kaskus, indonesian local forum..?
Local review has prove that simbadda psu only could deliver HALF of labeled wattage..more than that, it will fail in the ripple and give you horrible rail since it has no protection at all..

your cpu is good enough, maybe it's give you slightly bottleneck, but it's still a decent cpu..(it's much better if you can unlock the 4th core)

Yes a power supply is probably the one component you should probably make sure you get right in terms of quality and performance. You should never go cheap on the power supply.

but you know, my GPU run normally around 48 Degree Celsius if i just editting video or just watch movies, strange right? if your theory was right then my GPU should overheat even just watching movies !

Basically what hes trying to tell you is this is that your power supply isn't very efficient its like a bag full of money with a hole in it. It once had the money in it but it loses it and you are left with a product that is performing far less then what the power supply is saying.

when your do your video editing task or watching movie, your vga just work in slow speed, it just consume small power..
But in gaming mode, your vga work in full mode, and consume almost 200 watt of electricity (more than 300 watt for the whole system)..

in this time your psu cannot meet the power requirement of your vga and system..


and i agree with mr bigshootr8 answer..

Seasonic S12II Bronze 520 W is a decent psu with reasonable price.. :) 
November 16, 2012 9:59:15 AM

And after changing your PSU you may also get a performance increase since your GPU can draw the power it needs without getting to hot.
Worst case scenario you end up with a reliable PSU and you can just return your GPU and get a new one. Atleast you would get an answer for this issue.

I don't think he needs to pay for the Seasonic premium price. I honestly think a CX500 would suit him better.
November 16, 2012 10:24:26 AM

I actually used a CX500 with a 560Ti (EVGA SC) card for quite a while and never had any problems with it. Card was nice and cool and was performing as it should

November 16, 2012 11:46:17 AM

I doubt the answer to his problem is to just add a fan to his case.
The increase in his GPU Temp is to high for it. If he was lacking fans and had a big mess of cables and dust inside his case and inside his GPU it could be it, but as i understand it his computer has been cleaned and he has control over his cables.
More of his components would have heating issues if that was it.

Yea its probably not the issue his power supply should help with the temps and if the temps persist he can always exchange the card or rma it. agreed.

yeah..
the biggest possibility if the problem persist is that card is already get damage because of bad psu..

Maybe he still have to rma his card..

but the problem will not happen again..
