Recommended Posts

Hello guys.So i have a gtx 1060 and when i play overwatch with V-sync on the tmp is around 57-63 but when i turn it off it goes up to 70-72 sometimes 74.Shoulh i be worried?
Do you think that i'd better change the thermal paste and the thermal pads of my gpu?

Thank you

There's no issue here. You turn off the frame limiter, the GPU works harder to push more frames.

No problems there, though you might want to adjust your fan curve for better thermal performance. Turning off V-sync simply allows the GPU to render every frame the CPU can send it, so it'll run a lot hotter because it's doing a lot more work.

Don't worry about it, your graphics card is trying to pump out as many frames as possible. Your GPU workload increases, as will your temperatures.

i donno... esports players tend to want maximum frames, even if the monitor can't keep up. something about mouse latency or something. I don't really understand it... but they all do it.

Thx dude.Btw whats the max acceptable Gpu tmp so it will not throttle?

Most GPUs are designed to run as fast as they can up to 85C. Then they start increasing the fan speed. If temperatures continue to increase after that, the GPU will start downclocking.
