Toast

I just wanted a somewhat relevant but creative title.

Anyway, y'all know I have an ASUS Matrix GTX 580. My issue is that it runs hot (and I decided against RMAing it as I didn't want to have to deal with the lack of computer).

Anyway, I've been playing SWTOR fervently, and am a bit worried.

For tech specs see my info pane beneath my avatar.

I'm also running a 22" monitor and 24" monitor off the card simultaneously (but this shouldn't raise temps that much, I think)

One monitor idle - ~37C
Two monitor idle - ~50C
Two monitor 95% load after an hour (SWTOR) - ~80C
Two monitor 99% load after an hour (Skyrim) - ~72C (what? why does Skyrim run it cooler on a higher load..? No comprende)

I haven't tested a one monitor full load (I will when I get back to uni, visiting the family for the next month) but I have never heard of a Matrix 580 getting up that hot.

Also, I never have any issues in Skyrim (occasional ctd), but in SWTOR I get random CTD's (here I was thinking that was just a Skyrim issue) every 2-3 hours.

Thoughts? I know HH tested a Matrix 580 and didn't get nearly as warm results -.-

Re: Toast

Perhaps Skyrim's loading screens give the cooler a chance to catch up in a way that SWTOR's don't?

Nothing below 90 degrees should be problematic for a 580, though. Does it get noisy as well?

Do you mean max Furmark temp? He already posted max gaming temps.

Also, I don't mean to be a d**k, but stick to one question mark. It's just a little pet hate of mine, sorry :P

Re: Toast

Furmark it got up to around 86-87C. And I can't tell if it's loud as my H50 is powered by jet turbines (and I'm not turning them off to see how loud the GPU fan gets). I have custom bios burned so the fan ramps up earlier rather than later, I may just end up having it go to 95% after 75C.

And while I know it's not dangerous, it IS annoying. This is supposed to be the end-all of 1.5GB 580 models, and they should not get this high..my old 580 never broke 65C >_>

Re: Toast

You don't need 120CFPM. Get some resistors.

Re: Toast

check your air circulation in casing

wow... Intel i7-980X @ 4.2Ghz with Corsair H50?
curious about the temp when CPU reach full load?
my suggestions you should use Corsair H100.

Really?

The H50 is easily a 200W+ cooler. Ok so he won't get 50 degree load temps, but if they're under or around 80, who cares?

The H100 is for people who want to gun for 5GHZ.

mac_attack is on a distinguished road

Re: Toast

I use the H80 with the single fan radiator on my i5 2500k and at load I only hit mid 30's for temps. That's also overclocked to 4.3GHZ.

Either your stress program or your temp sensor is faulty. Or your ambient temps are dangerously low.
