Corsair 380t cooling issue

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I was able to get a 380t a month or so ago and I was super excited. I bought some necessary components, the build looks great and i have it next to my monitor. I am using a 200mm fan in the front for intake and i have 3 120s for exhaust. 2 of them are on the aio of my processor. The issue I am really having is that when i load up a game the gpu starts getting really hot like upwards of like 81C sometime more. The gpu is a 980ti classified from evga, I don't know if that card is just bad for this case or if my airflow is the issue. I am really at a loss any ideas would really help, cause right now I resort to taking of the side panel everytime i load a game up.

Buy a case with better airflow or buy a GPU that doesn't blow so much heat into the case. There's not much else you can do.

So really it is because the gpu is blowing that air into the case?

I had this case with a 980ti in it for a while (gigabyte 1 gaming) since the blowers face the ventilated sides i don't see how the case would be an issue?

hottest I ever saw with that card in "oc mode" was 74c even during a 2 hour stress test.

The case is designed for the GPU to pull air directly through a ventilated area on the side. This card looks like it would normally hit 76ºC when it released, so 81ºC isnt that hot in comparison. How much do temps drop when you pull the side panel off?

It will stay just below 80, with the evga shroud it pulls in the air and exhausts it out of the top and bottom, that plexi glass is messing it up i think.

A few degree difference isnt anything to worry about too much, unless the fans have to ramp up a lot in order to maintain that temperature. If they only raise about 5% speed, IMO it's worth the trade off since the side panels act as dust filters, hick means your GPU stays clean and dust doesn't impede heat transfer on the GPU cooling fins.

82 isn't that hot for a 980Ti, my 1070 is between 80 and 88 while gaming at 1440p and ultra quality

Right but it is my understanding that anything above 80 is incredibly bad for gpu health and longevity

it may decrease the gpu life from 10 years to 9yrs, it'll be probably obsolete by then

Hardly. Each generation of GPU has a "safe temperature range" and for Maxwell (the GTX9xx series of GPU's) it's like 92ºC or something. It's only "incredibly bad" for longevity if you're stressing it for a long time, like in a mining rig. Otherwise GPU's running at 85ºC or 65ºC will last about the same length of time before they die, perhaps a minor difference (we're talking years here )
