GPU temperature and airflow

so is it fine for me to game with the side panel off for as long as i want?

 

if that solves your problem, then yes. but it shows that it's a very bad case you have.

Hi everyone, so for the past few months i have had issues with my gpu being quite hot and just today i installed some new fans to increase airflow, however it has made no difference and the gpu is getting even hotter and i am getting frame drops etc in games can somebody assist me and help me to figure out what is wrong. the gpu is reaching a high of 90 degrees celcius and i have no clue if its even a problem. 

 

Specs

Ryzen 2700x

Asus 1660 oc dual fan

Gigabyte b450m

Corsair tx550m

Corsair vengence ddr4 16gb ram

 

 

Thanks in advance

yes, it's getting throttled when it's so high. do the gpu fans spin up correctly? have you applied any overclock to the gpu and any custom fan curve?

what case do you have? does it have good airflow? does your cpu also overheat?

what's the ambient temp?

yes the fans spin up correctly i had applied overclock to see if it would change anythin but then changed it back i applied a custom fan curve however i have a aerocool cylone mini it has okayish airflow the cpu and if ambient temp is the same as room temp its 20 degrees celcius.

so it doesn't kick in until it reaches 70C? that might be the issue. can you try with one of the default modes?

i only made this one today before i started this page and it was still doin this before hand here is the pic of the one i used prior to this:image.png.89043a1abd880d311d96056455ae8259.png

ambient temps?

case airflow? you can remove the side panel and check if temps drop down significantly, if they do. it's likely bad case airflow.


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

it shouldn't get that hot unless there is something wrong with the fans or the case has such bad airflow that it's starving it of air.

so is it fine for me to game with the side panel off for as long as i want?

hmm yes also quickly if i was to buy a new motherboard, and move my cpu from my old motherboard to a new one would i need to do any sort of bios update?

why would you buy a new motherboard?

it's always a good idea to do a bios update, but not always necessary. depends on the motherboard in question

well i have a gigabyte b450m micro atx and one of my mates who also builds pcs told me if i was to buy a higher end gpu, which i am going to some time this year, i would want a better motherboard. Also is it possible that having a full atx motherboard for example meaning i will have a larger case will mean i have increased airflow because i will have a larger case. i know this sounds so stupid but i am still kinda new to this stuff.

motherboards and gpus have nothing to do with each other. you'd only need to upgrade your motherboard if you're thinking of getting a ryzen 9 cpu. any gpu will work well with your motherboard.

you can install your matx board in a larger ATX case without any issues, so you can benefit from the better airflow.
