Is it OK for a GTX 1080 to run at 82-83 Degress playing games?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is a new card and I was playing Witcher 3 on Ultra Settings and AC Unity on Very High preset and I noticed that my 1080 runs upward to 82-83 degrees celsius while in both games it is utilized 100% of the time. I only play for a couple of hours with each game. But at idle when my PC isnt doing anything intensive it sits at 39-40 degrees.

Should I worry about the temperature while playing these games? I also noticed the fan goes at 90-100% too playing these two games. But there was no decreased performance since I get 60+ FPS on both games.


I have this card Zotac GTX 1080 Mini 8Gb

The mini runs hotter there is just less space to dissipate the heat. Not to mention with 39-40 c at idle your case either lacks air flow or your room is really hot. Regardless the card throttles at 84c ish meaning it might be a issue it might not be. Whats the clocks when you're gaming?

Well it is safe, but it might be throttling because it can't really get any hotter than that.

My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Its's fine. If you want lower temps, you have to get a new cooler.
