    Hello everyone, I was wondering if someone can guidance me in order to reduce my GTX 580 1.5 GB, temps, I tried already to remove the heatsink, and do a clean of gpu chipset with alcohol 99%, and put artic 5 thermal paste, and put back the cooler cover, etc etc, but it seems that it still kinda high temp, even at idle, 0%

    Look

    And sadly i dont have an air compressed to clean out the dust..... i just have an air machine, but that´s not accurate or precise like a bottle of air compressed, and sadly in my country Venezuela everything sucks, everything expensive....

    Also I was wondering, if i upgrade my GTX 580, bios, maybe temps will drop? but I dont know which bios to dowload

    LOOK this a gpu bios for gtx 580 evga 1.5 gb 772 core clock/1002

    And these are the pictures of my GPU hardware

    Is the fan actually working? I know it reports in that it's working, but have you observed it running?

    Is the heatsink cleaned out? No dust.

    The 580 is a hot card, but no reason for it to be running that hot at idle.

    What are the temps while gaming?

    And I do not believe a bios update will fix anything. If anything it will just change the fan profiles mostly which won't get to your underlying problems.

    At moment run 3dmark, with all default settings

    Now, I'm dowloading a Unigine_Heaven 4.0.exe to do a gpu test full to see the temperatures.

    Chances are the fan and fins are clogged up with dust and dirt, that is way too hot for that card unless the case temps are also really high.

    Room ambient temps effect case temps which effect component temps.
