Can I cool down my gpu somehow? And it sounds likeshair dryer or vacuum cleaner

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My GPU is literally at playing games running at 88-92 °C. I don't think that's normal. When nothing runs only windows itself and maybe chrome or something temps are 52-55 °C, especially when I read that people have GPU temps in normal usage at 30-40° C. Can I cool it down somehow or maybe install additional cooling to the case, or maybe water cooling on GPU (but I don't think that's a good idea because I mess up something and my GPU ruined.) I need your advice thanks.

 

An additional problem is that it sounds like a hair dryer or vacuum cleaner when it runs. That noise is annoying and distractful. Don't know any solutions, tips?

 

My GPU is Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 (blower).

Tear it down and replace the thermal paste with something decent like MX-4.

OK then normally open GPU and replace thermal paste with arctic MX-4 thermal paste right? And what cool down I should expect? how many degrees approximately?

depens on ur case airflow and fan curve but it should be around 78-83 under heavy load

to about 85C max load? Unfortunately blowers aren't good at giving low temperatures.


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

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

Too many variables to really give a concrete answer but ideally it'd be somewhere in the high 70s unless you have ass-class airflow where it might end up hitting the 80s.

 

Also shouldn't forget to mention that being a blower you'll probably want to clean it out. Takes a lot less dust to block blowers up and make cooling far worse.
