Hello everyone. I've started to monitor my GPU temps lately, as I've decided to OC it to somewhere around 1450/3800 and I noticed my temps are quite high, idle is 53-58°C (fans always at 0%) load is 83°C (fans around 83%). I thought it was all from the dust that build up in my case, so I decided to clean it. After a thorough cleaning and making sure there is very little/no dust inside the case, especially around the GPU I decided to test the temps again. It seems nothing has changed, temps are still somewhere around 50-53°C (fans still at 0%) at idle after a bit when PC started then slowly rising to 58°C , and load is 82°C (fans still at 83%). Does anyone have any idea what's causing this ? Here is my system: CPU: i5 2500K @ 4.5 GHz GPU: MSI GTX 980Ti Gaming 6G Motherboard: AsRock Z77 Extreme4 RAM: Patriot G2 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz PSU: SuperFlower Leadex Gold 650W Case: Fractal Design Define R5 The clocks of the GPU are at: 135/405 when idle 1350/3500 when gaming (GPU boosts itself) There is 1 intake fan and 1 exhaust fan in my case. I unfortunately don't know my room temps since I don't have a thermometer, and the outside is 35°C some the room gets heated up a little. Some folk also have said that having a 144hz monitor increases the GPU temps since it renders more frames , is there any truth to this ? All of this was tested in a slightly cool room, on Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor on everything maxed out (with HD Content installed) @ 1440p for around 5-10 minutes. Anyone have any suggestions on how to reduce temps ?
