Used gtx 1070 overheating in my pc, not in sellers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello there!

 

I bought a used asus rog strix 1070 the other day (was able to return it, dont have it on me) and it was overheating very badly. If i ran any demanding game or benchmark, it went up to 93-95c with 100% fan speed in 10sec and started throttling. The wierdest part is that when i returned we tried it again in the sellers pc and it was working perfectly on 73c with like 40% fan speed and even his idle temps were 10c lower than mine, i had 40c. Now we have quite simular cases, i have a phanteks p400 and he got an nzxt s340 elite both with 4 simular quality fans. I wanted to switch my xfx rx580 8gb gts xxx card and it runs just as it should, mid 70s while gaming. The amd driver was removed with ddu in safe mode, than i tried 3 differend nvidia drivers to no avail. At this point i had the opportunity to return, so i did. What could have been the problem? My friends dont have a 1070 that i could try, so i dont know if i should try buying an other one while the used market is amazing rn. That asus card would have been a reeeeaaaaly good buy for the price so this is a bummer.

 

Specs:

 

Case: Phanteks p400 (with 2x front 140 intake and 2x 120 exhaust on the back and top.)

 

MOBO:  Asrock b450 pro4 (with up to date bios)

 

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 @3.9 with a dual fan hyper 212

 

RAM: g skill aegis 2*8gb ddr4 3000mhz

 

PSU: Corsair tx550m 80+ gold

 

What i think should have done is at least look at the power draw but i did not think of that at the time. :/

Did the big card sag more in your case than the seller's? Not screwing down the screw hilding the I/O plate in place for example.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

take the side window off and test it.

As i said i dont have the card on me anymore, and if the 580 runs fine then the 1070, especially the rog strix should have had no problem at all. And my rooms ambient temp is like 21-22c.

It sagged some since its a huge card but nothing too bad. And i had my trusty lego stand already there as i use it for the 580 as well.

Did the seller use supporting stuff? Because if the thermal paste "got used to" a certain position it can fail when mounted differently.
