Other ways to cool this old GPU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am currently using an old GTX 760 (Korean Brand - Emtek, dual fans)

 

I'm still waiting my funds to purchase higher and products so I need to stay with this gpu for a longer period of time.

 

My temps before applying thermal paste reaches 98 Celsius and after applying paste it reaches 82-85 Celsius (higher sometimes on hot days), 50-60 Celsius when idle or just booted up

 

We don't have AC installed yet but I doubt it is going to help during heavy loads. I removed a side panel of the case because I'm getting higher temperatures when the components are enclosed even with fans. I don't want to watercool the pc because it will affect my funds and is not worth for older components

 

Are there any temporary solutions to cool this GPU? Thanks.

you could try undervolting it a bit... but is it 82-85 constant or 85 tops?

Just point a fan at it, high 80's under load isn't the worst but isn't ideal, it won't hurt the card.


Build the PC you want to build, not what others tell you is best. If you want to sacrifice faster ram or a better motherboard for parts that look cooler, go for it. It's your PC.

 

 

Safe used buys:

-Processors

-Motherboards (inspect the pins on LGA sockets)

-RAM

-Cases

- Air Coolers

-Midrange or entry level GPUs 

 

Potential risky Buys:

-Hot, high end graphics cards

-Power supplies

-AIO liquid coolers

-m.2 SSD's

 

Do NOT buy used:

-SATA SSDs

-hard drives, especially enterprise tier

-motherboards with bent pins thinking you can fix it

-PGA processors with bent pins thinking you can fix it

-gpus with "bios errors"

Yes. On GPU dependent/heavy games. It reaches 85 degrees (very rarely 89) and 82 on well balanced and optimized games. The Temps range of 82-89 is constant which is weird to me because it seems like it's capped.

Pointing a huge fan on it doesn't reduce the numbers but cools the surrounding areas of the pc. I don't know why it's not going down even a litte bit

id throw an Arctic Accelero Mono Plus at it, cheap and pretty good


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

well, undervolting would be something then...

Never knew those coolers existed. I'll consider it. Thanks.
