Burning Rubber smell after new Graphics Card

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey PC people,

 

I have built a new rig with the below components except for some old drives and my old PSU. The GPU is the newest addition and from when I added it, there is a burning rubber smell whenever I am playing some intense games (like Anthem @ 1080p -vsync on (60 hz) - Ultra settings. Also to note, the graphics card temp goes to around 72-81 degrees Celsius during those game sessions. Also, rarely the PC just shuts down without any notice some times.

 

ASUS ROG Strix Z370G Gaming (m-ATX)

Intel Core i7-8700K @ 4.3GHz

Hyper T4 Cpu cooler

2x 4GB Corsair Vengeance @ 2400 MHz

MSI Ventus XS OC RTX 2060 (this is the newest component)

Samsung 970 Evo NVMe SSD 250 GB

 

Samsung 860 Evo 2.5" SSD 250 GB

2x Internal HDDs

2x External Powered HDDs

1x External Portable HDD

 

Corsair VS 550 PSU

 

Also I only have 2 120mm case fans, 1 in front and one in the back. I am planning to add 2 more, 1 in front and 1 at top back.

 

I have been looking at some forums and I noticed that some ppl were saying it could be the problem with PSU not able to handle the power demand. Could anyone point me to where to look at for the problem?

 

Also to note, the burning smell I am talking about came when I smelled the graphics card out of the box as well. But it did not fill up the room until it got heated up.

 

Note: Thinking it could be heating problem, I have overridden the GPU fans to run 100% always and added the temp limit at 72 C(from 84C default). Will it cause the fans to die soon?

 

Regards,

Me

I read your story, Im sorry you gotta deal with this right now.  That burning smell is no good.  Brand new out of box shouldn't smell burned smell.  Also playing your games should not produce any burning smell.  Running at 72c or 84c is more common they you know.  Everything has a different case and different setups.  Im hear to say your temps are not bad alto I would hope for a little less since the fans are ramped at 100 percent which is a overkill.  I have my custom fan curve set to 60c once it reach 60c the fan speed goes to 70 percent and honestly I can barely hear it.  My temps are 67c with fans at 70 percent and pretty silent.  Your fans wont die for minimum 40 thousand hours, some peoples goes for 100k before the fan can possibly fail.  Have you tried opening your side case panel ?  That might shed some light, as I think inside your case sh*T is very warm.

I did open up the side panel and checked, I am in India and the outside temperature is around 35+ degrees celsius in the noon. The aircons are running to keep the room temperature between 28-30 degrees. Also, the tower is inserted in a space where the backside is a little bit blocked out. I am planning to rearrange the tower to a more open space to see if that improves the temps within the case. 

 

I do think that this seems overheating compared to my GTX 960 from before from Asus which ran very cool at even intense loads for that card. 

 

Thanks for the thoughts. Will post if there are any improvements.
