Next to price and performance of course, these are some of the most important aspects of a video card, due in large part to the impact of noise. It goes without saying that with a new architecture on a new manufacturing node, Pascal is significantly different from Maxwell when it comes to voltages and clockspeeds. Back in our look at GPU Boost 3. Idle voltage in particular is much lower; whereas GTX idled at 0.
As a percentage of the maximum boost clock, the average clockspeeds of the the GTX and GTX both drop more significantly than with GTXwhere the latter only drops a few percent from its maximum. This is due to a combination of the temperature compensation effect we discussed earlier and both cards hitting 83C though so does GTX As our samples have identical maximum boost clocks — something I should note is not guaranteed, as the maximum boost clock varies from card to card — we get a slightly more apples-to-apples comparison here.
Ramping up to load power we have Crysis 3. For better or worse, this benchmark also captures the CPU impact of performance; a GPU that can produce a higher framerate also requires the CPU to work harder to feed it frames.
This is 20W more than GTXand this is due to a couple of factors. If anything I would have expected the CPU power impact to be more pronounced.
But at any rate, compared to GTX there is a real increase in power consumption while gaming. As for GTXit comes close to topping this chart. So W is definitely impressive, and a reminder of how great it is to get off of 28nm. Up next we have idle temperatures. Both cards idle at 30C. With FurMark the results are similar to above. GTX FE actually never reaches that point, which means that its cooler is more than powerful enough to keep up with its W TDP, as this should be the maximum load possible.
Last but not least, we have noise. Moving to load noise, as it turns out NVIDIA has tuned the coolers on both cards to operate similarly to their past cards.
Though this does make me suspect that the real-world cooling performance of all of these cards in terms of heat moved is also quite similar. Finally, FurMark confirms our earlier observations. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
Attaching a image of the temperature in HWMonitor Pro. With kind regards Zybius. Have you tried using MSI afterburner if the temperature of your card is still the same?
Thats too much temperature for an idle card, have you tried checking for any wires which might cause grouds? I have checked and it was a bit too high. The case is new as I just bought it in June so there is no problem with that. If you are wondering what case I have it's a Corsair Carbide Air I have looked on someone else's overclocking settings for the GPU and have adjusted accordingly to this persons settings aswell.
However I am highly unsure what a really good idle temp for this graphics card really is. What is the average idle temperature for this card among others that have it? Thank you for your reply though. Speaking of the cables they are in correctly and not loose or anything as I've checked this twice. This temp is normal. Card is therefor just passively cooled until it reaches the temp where fans need to start Zero Frozr feature.As always, last but not least is our look at power, temperature, and noise.
Next to price and performance of course, these are some of the most important aspects of a GPU, due in large part to the impact of noise. All told, there are no surprises here. This is a smidge higher than the GTX Ti, but not meaningfully so.
As for Crysis 3, the GTX Ti ends up being the hottest card here despite the cooling improvements, though it should be noted that this is intentional. As far as reference specification designs go, the higher temperatures improve the efficiency of the cooler. The downside to higher temperatures is that power leakage increases with the temperature.
The story is much the same under FurMark. The GTX Ti settles at 84C here as well — though it did peak at 86C before reaching equilibrium — showcasing that regardless of the workload, the card always levels out at its thermal throttling point.
Finally we have our look at noise, starting with idle noise.
EVGA GTX 1080 FTW DT Idle Temps / Coil Whine
Finally, the situation with FurMark is much the same. Overall, judging from the power and noise characteristics of the GTX Ti, along with its throttling practices, it looks like NVIDIA invested most of their gains with the improved cooling system in removing more heat from the card itself.

Install Steam. Is this normal or is this too high? Last edited by deezy ; 25 Nov, pm. Showing 1 - 15 of 16 comments. If you put it to performance rather than Power saving of adaptive it will not downclock under any usage and because fan off under 50C it can get to C easily.
It's the load temps you need to care about not idle, though, that is a bit warm, I would look to alter the fan profile if it bothered you to have it on at a lower temperature if only slowly. Your link is flagged as malicious by steam.

Single card sat around the 60 to mid 70's for a single card for me on a ti ftw3, depending on fan settings, but I didn't run only one often, luckily you are fine with temps into the low 80's before you need to be scared. Atleast on the Ti's, while the rest of the range is technically a different chip, the whole series follows the same basic thermal reaction regarding boost speeds.
Zef View Profile View Posts. My aorus ti at idle is at 56, no fans running. Left on default fan settings it would hit If you want it to be cooler set a fan curve so the fan runs at your choice of RPM at any given temp. The fan stop is okay but really my ti gaming x is really quiet and doesn't really need to be totally stopped. Right now I have 58 degrees on my GTX while browsing internet so it's totally fine. Randxm View Profile View Posts. Lol, I am being worried when my gets to 60c when gaming.
GTX 1080 Gaming SC normal operating Temps
Wolfey View Profile View Posts. Absolutely normal. GTXs only kick down to idle if their Power Plan tells them to. If they're set to Performance, they'll run at full clock all the time, and that's where you get a 55 degree idle from. You can adjust this by right-clicing your desktop and opening Nvidia settings, then changing the power priority.
That's a very healthy temp for a card running at full clock. You should be pleased with that - you're 17 degrees better than my Asus Strix Register Now! Login Register. Please login or register. Home Help Search Login Register. Read times. Hello, Do i need to try give it to the warranty? Playing games gpu temps are 81' celsius. Other question Why buy gaming x msi edition, if u have same sound and temps as Founders Edition? First off the cards sits right in front of the sidepanel with no room to breathe.
Also the card is black and white. Is that a paint job you applied? Thanks for the reply. Front 2x14mm NZXT fans, top 1x and back 1x - 12mm fans.
New Bitmap Image. I already asked about the paint job. Oh Soryy. Yes, my wife working similar job, shes painted to me with some special acrylic paints and pencil :P. Always leave my side panels off. Your warranty by the way is void because of the paint job so rma is no option anyway. I guess you removed the cooler for the paint job, did you reapply thermal paste? No i didntits jus a decoration on top. I agree with that for example gtx or is temperatures much lower. Maybe 80 degrees is ideal for this card?
Yes, it is normal in the way it is used. Hello, thank you for interesting information shared on the thread, but still I do concern about few things. I added an extra fan to my case, card can easily breath etc. I'm using "Gaming" mode, so the idle temp is around celsius. When I play games heavy load temp. I though that guru3d is reliable but it's impossible to stay below 70 on load without I dunno what Thanks in advance, kind regards.
Sorry for probably bumping necro thread. I just googled some related information and found this thread. Vertical gpu mount almost always results in bad temperatures.The noise that's created isn't bad when you're in a large hall full of journalists and EDM blaring over the speakers.
But it's much more apparent in an office. And unfortunately, real-world temperatures after three minutes of warm-up look a lot different than what we saw during Nvidia's press day. It doesn't take long for the card to hit its temperature target and hover around 83 to 84 degrees Celsius. That number rises to 85 degrees during the stress test. Focus on the overclocking run's orange line. At the beginning of our test, we registered a remarkable MHz that finally stabilized at MHz. Running at x not only saves 34W of power that isn't converted to heat, but it also facilitates GPU Boost rates above the 2.
The hits its temperature target by dropping the GPU's clock rate. During a gaming loop, it falls all the way down to its base frequency, leaving nothing left of GPU Boost. Nvidia's direct heat exhaust cooler does do its job, but the GeForce GTX Founders Edition does face clear and restrictive boundaries that make overclocking completely pointless for sustained or challenging loads. Its 38 degrees Celsius is mind; it's not like you'd expect a lot of waste heat from a card drawing less than 7W.
Nvidia's new flagship putts along at human body temperature, in essence. Our measurement results and pictures show that the vapor chamber does its job well during gaming tests. So if push comes to shove, you can experiment with different fan profiles to make up the difference. Most of the heat comes from the GPU, and during our stress test there's plenty of thermal energy to go around. The board under the GPU hits the same temperature as the processor, and this heat spreads across the board.
After a while, it reaches the memory modules and pushes them to, but not over, their thermal limit. Practically speaking, very few people will run prolonged stress tests on a regular basis. As usual, we conduct noise measurements in a sound-dampened test chamber using our custom-built silent test system. With this setup, we can measure noise starting at approximately 22 dB A.
The hardware keeps us from getting any lower.
