I recently bought a gtx 680 and its been great for all my gaming needs....that is.... until i looked at the temp. I seem to idle at or slightly above 75 degrees. When i play games such as planetside 2, it goes to around 85-90. What do you think?
the new cards is not idle (in to the games a few hours ago) still working up to 100 degrees with manufacturer cooler. don't worry......if the idle 75-80 degrees to your video card temp you have problem
I have an EVGA gtx 680. I used gpu temp program to find its temprature. Can you guys throw me another program that i can use just to make sure its not the software giving me errors? And i got this for Christmas so theirs no dust.... and i just dusted my computer today Which didn't change anything at all
You can use GPU-Z and CPU-Z to monitor temperatures of those individual items. Or you can download one of many other temp monitoring programs to watch both at once. HWMonitor is a good one (made by same folks as CPU-Z) that will allow you to see temperatures of the CPU, GPU, Motherboard, hard drives, etc. All at once even!
OP how many case fans you have got as an Intake and exhaust ?
I think your case lak cooling.. I've got the haf 912 , 2 CM 120m fans in the front as intake , and another 2 at top for exhaust .. and ofc the one that comes with the case at the rear as exhaust add another one to the side as intake (blows directly towards the card)
try having something like this and see if thigs gets better.. blower cooled cards need alot of air in the case
If that does not work then trying updating the BIOS of the card, go to evga site directly and download the drivers from there, also download evga precision X and make sure the gpu fan speed is set on AUTO , the evga gtx 680 is a very nice card please don't make it suffer from any fevers
