monitor causing higher gpu temp?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have posted something similar to this, but i wanted to post again to check my own sanity

 

So, i have recently been given a 4k dell sq2817q monitor as a second monitor to my lg gaming monitor running at 120hz

I set the monitor to 4k and i have noticed that there is a high idle temp to be expected, also with the core clock either staying elevated or bouncing up and down.

However, when i start to play back video, normal web browsing, or watching a episode of netflix. The temp sits around 50-60C and once it's gets up there, it says there and I have to either manually turn on the fans to reduce temp or just leave the pc running and not using it for hours to reduce temperature.

Now I know that the 4k resolution will raise the temperature some, but after looking on other forumns and that, nothing i have found has explained why my gpu is running so warm all the time.

EDIT:
here is my pc specs:
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600
Cooler: NZXT X62
MOBO: Asus B350-F Gaming
RAM: 16 GB G skill trident z RBG DDR4-3000 
GPU: MSI 1070ti Titanium 8GB 
PSU: EVGA 550W 80+ Gold

This is normal. You need to drive those pixels on the monitor which takes GPU horsepower so it is going to naturally increase the core clock of your GPU to compensate for that. With Zero RPM fan mode on all modern cards now, your idle temps will increase as a result of the increased core clocks.

Well seeing as your GPU is one of the ones that has a zero-fan mode, that's probably why. The fans probably don't kick until you pass 60-62C. And since you're running a 4K monitor and a 120Hz monitor, the clocks have to stay higher than they would if you used a "mainstream" display, so the temps never have much of a chance to go down after a bit of load, such as the hardware accelerated loads you talked about.

The monitor res has nothing to do with the GPU temp. You have a msi card, the msi default curve keeps the fans off until 60c.

Thanks for the response and helping me check my sanity😅 

 

I thought that everything was performing as normal but wasn't exactly sure
