A question regarding 240hz heat and temps

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hello, i have an 144hz 2k monitor atm and i get in games temps like 68-70c which is pretty average or expected, i was thinking of downgrading to 1k 240hz since i mostly play games like overwatch or mordhau that needs or benefits from more fps, if i get atm temps like 65-70c on demanding games on 2k 144hz, what would be the expected temps when downgrading to 1k 240hz or how does it work basically.

What is 2k and 1k?

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

2k isn't a specific term for a screen resolution, neither is 1k

but i'm assuming you mean 2560x1440p and 1920x1080p?


Anything i've written between the * and * is not meant to be taken seriously.

keep in mind that helping with problems is hard if you aren't specific and detailed.

i'm also not a professional, (yet) so make sure to personally verify important information as i could be wrong.

if the temps you mention are gpu temps, you wont' see any difference if you don't manually limit in-game fps, as the gpu will try to push as many frames as it can, regardless of what the monitor can show.

FHD 1K and 2K 1440P

I would argue it would drop if the GPU isn't pinned at 100% after lowering res

Because the chances of it being CPU bound is much higher

i always limit it to 144 fps on my 2k monitor and get about 68-70c so i wonder what will be on 1080p 240hz capped

just slightly undervolt your gpu or set a more aggressive fan curve if you're not happy with the temperature. I don't think it's worth spending money to change resolutions

First of all, what games?

Not many games will run above 200 fps due to CPU limitations

I have never had a card change times between those two res’s and hz. Not sure how it could as the load is the same in my case.

Correct, there isnt a limitation so it sees the same load thus reaching the same temps.

and that would be the same on the cpu right ? since some games are cpu heavy.

No, cpu temp can change based on use/load. So I wouldnt say thats the same, but wont be effected by hz of a monitor.
