My AORUS GeForce RTX™ 2080 8G is throttling a lot while I game it wasnt like that when I bought it

Recommended Posts

I have the AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 8G and when I game sometimes it throttles for about 5 sec then it slows down so temps go up to 87 degrees it wasnt like this when I bough it, I'm using the aorus engine and I set my fans to max out at 80 degrees but it still throttles.


Also I have a very good ventilated case and it is clean from dust.


Does anyone have any idea y is this happening? and how can I fix it?

What case and fan setup do you have?


Try creating a custom fan curve in afterburner.

Shite factory thermal paste, the cooler's actually not mounted properly and/or faulty, or your ambient temperatures are through the roof, if your case really is well ventilated.

I have an old csae but it i still good this is the only old item in my setup , it is the Thermaltake Chaser mk-1.  the front fan is intake and side fan and rear fan are outtake.


I dont know how to create a custom fan curve.


Here is a pic of the fan curve I"m using it was like that when I loaded the aorus engine all I did was move the top to 80 degrees so it runs the fans at max when it reaches 80 degrees.

The thermal paste probably dries out or something. You can repast it if you want. Or clean it 

Dust it off etc. 

Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

The same thing is happening with my Aorus 2080 8g. I can't even play in 4k anymore without the fans sounding like a jet engine.
