Really Hot GTX 1080 Strix

ArcticEngineer
 Share

I just bought a gtx 1080 off eBay for 330$ the guy said it was used for just light gaming. I brought it home, installed it into my system, and I noticed it was really hot. This was after 5 - 10 minutes of fortnite, but the metal backplate got really warm, to the point where it was a bit uncomfortable to touch. I haven’t had a “high end” GPU until now, but I don’t know if this is normal. I’m at around 65 C to 70 C with a 1835 MHz. I believe this card can go all the way up to 2000mhz no problem.

 

Thanks for any help

that's not *that* hot, from my experience asus is quite lenient with fan curves as well.

 

also, you may want a case with at least decent airflow. which case are you using now?

That's quite normal. I can't really touch my backplate at all on my 980ti. The temps are a bit high for the clocks imo 

That's an F in the profile pic

thats normal but still a bit high. could be old paste or more likely your case has poor air flow either needing to get more cool air in or not getting the hot air out in time. id look into that first

I'm more interested on where you found a 1080 for that cheap tbh. Over here in Germany the absolutely cheapest one I could find on the spot was still about 100$ more expensive than yours... ._.

75% of what I say is sarcastic

 

So is the rest probably

Try a more serious and better game instead of shitty game like Porknite, that game doesn't look good.

Serious games tends to make GPU's hotter than kiddy games. With that way, you can test if the GPU is not working broken.

 

And who buys a GTX1080 "just for light gaming"? Ye, sorry but I'm skeptical. I didn't buy my 1080Ti just for light gaming.

For light gaming, GTX1050Ti would be plenty or RX560.

Sounds like a normal strix to me. Ramp the fans up and get some nice case fans and turn those up too.

Don't know why you would think a back plate wouldn't be hot?
