RTX 2080 XC running hot?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Yesterday I received an RTX 2080 XC as part of a warranty exchange program with my retailer. I previously had a GTX 1080 that I only saw rise above 70c when It was 25c+ in my room. I've played a few rounds of Battlefield V, Overwatch & some GTA V and noticed that all my 2080 XC temps are hitting 80c+ with a high fan speed, I've used a custom fan curve in EVGA Precision X1 and even tried ramping up to 100% fan speed to see what this would do, even then It wouldn't drop below 79c. 

 

I'm not sure what I'm expecting in terms of any reply, has anyone else suffered a similar issue?

 

Case: be quiet! Dark Base 700
CPU: Intel i7 8700K
Motherboard: ASUS Strix Z390-E
RAM: 16GB Corsair Dominator 3000mhz
GPU: EVGA RTX 2080 XC
SSD: Samsung 960 EVO 500GB
SSD: Samsung 850 PRO 256GB
PSU: Corsair RM650x
Cooling: Corsair H150i

That sounds to be a bit on the high end actually, EVGA cards usually cool well when cranked up like that.

 

It could either be an airflow issue in your case or a thermal paste issue.

 

Can you try with the side of your case open with the same fan profile and see if it is any different?

I removed the side panel and did get a drop in temperatures, It wasn't anything huge though as It dropped from 80c to 76c and even then began to climb despite having the fans cranked all the way up.

Are you playing on the same settings as before or did you crank those up?

 

I recently switched from a 1060 to an 1080Ti and also noticed a temp increase because I'm running my games on maximum settings.

if the dust is cleaned out then the problem is ur case and airflow, 100% fans shouldn't go to 80C on a 2080

Read my second post please, even with side panel removed they're hitting 76c. It can't be airflow related, must be a bad paste job at this point.

Yes, settings are exactly the same. All the way to ultra, 1440p.
