Gigabyte RTX 3080 gaming OC memory overheating

22 hours ago, Mark Kaine said:

But, they have to tell you.  You have a contract with them, not with gigabyte. 

 

This basically means you don't really have a working warranty anyways, so unless you can make the shop tell you if opening the card voids the warranty or not, you could try it anyway imo. 🤔

 

Also, to be clear, what's the highest memory temp you've seen yet... ?  Seems 100C is fine and there may be other issues with the card if you're seeing a noticeable performance loss. 

Lastly,  i feel you,  gigabyte's coolers are completely inadequate,  don't cool much at all until 95% fancurve or so and at 100% ever so slightly but still not even close to appropriate. 

 

 

I have pretty good results with undervolting however,  1000mv at 2025mhz,  64C max... 

Compared to stock 1930mhz 79C max...

 

 

It would appear these cards come with much too high voltage settings,  although that'll differ by model obviously and 3070 isn't directly comparable probably.

While most RTX 3080 suffer from high temperatures of their memory modules and what you are experiencing is quite normal, I will give you mine two cents on this. You have already established that you can't really return this card and get it replaced by the retailer. Gigabyte also wouldn't care as technically the 100C is within spec. Probably the best option you have is selling the card on ebay or another local classifieds site to you for a big profit. Then with that money you buy another scalped RTX 3080, but from a different AIB that doesn't have those issues. If you are intent on getting a RTX 3080 you will probably need to pay a bit extra on top of what you manage to sell yours for, as yours is used and most others out there are new. If you are not that big on RT you can try and get a 6900XT. Last time I have checked these do go for a bit cheaper, at least compared to a RTX 3080. 

 

The last option is to open up the card and replace the thermal pads. Also adding pads where possible, like between he pcb and the back plate. I had similar temperature issues with my XC3 Ultra. Memory was constantly hitting 95-100C when gaming. After changing the pads and adding some extra ones, the memory is now not going above 90C, which is quite decent. Thing to consider is that EVGA doesn't void the warranty for opening the card and replacing the pads and TIM. That being said, if you don't damage the card by doing this Gigabyte will probably not care either.

if clocks stay the same the memory is probably not to blame here, GDDR6X memory is rated for up to 110°C and will not throttle until it hits that temperatur.

this has been the case for my msi 3090, zotac 3080 and my gigabyte 3090

there's a possibility that gigabyte limits the 3080 g6x at 100c, though i can't see why they would

 

i cannot confirm nor deny anything because

1) i dont represent gigabyte

2) i've had to deal with their non-existent customer service before, which is to send my GPU in for one month through my retailer, without any feedback nor responses

Literally this one

Quick updated i got answer from gigabyte atlast. They told me that i shouldn't open gpu myself and change thermal pads myself. I must bring card to shop where i bought it and retailer should send it to their service for examination and repair. So yeah, you can't open gpu yourself(even though there is nothing special in changing thermal pads any 5 year old could do that) without voiding warranty.

they're telling you this because they're gonna take it back and not give it back to you, as many people who RMA-ed a 30-series gpu will tell you

 

[speculation] and offer you a refund at the price you bought it at and probably turn around and sell the card to another person at a higher price [/speculation]

Products I hate:

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: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

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.

Interesting... and yeah depends on country,  in USA opening something up  - without breaking it -  doesn't void warranty,  in EU however,  it does.  So much for EU being "pro consumer" i guess. 

 

Well, are you going to send it in?  If that works I might just do that as well,  since my card, at default settings, is really much too hot and the fans don't do much at all either.

Hey guys, i encoutered problem with my gigabyte card, while gpu doesn't heat up to 68c, memory heats up to 100. Also i noticed oil on fans itself it's most likely thermal pads. After some research i am not alone, vision, eagle and gaming oc have cheapo thermal pads and they are bad. Some people just change them, i would do it myself, But there is no information about voiding warranty by replacing thermal pads. I am not breaking i would fix the problem. Shop i bought my 3080 told me that they don't know if i can open it and change pads without voiding warranty, they said to ask Gigabyte but gigabyte has terrible support, i wrote them message about bent 8 pin connector pin on my 3080, didnd't get answer in three weeks. How to contact them ? where should i seek information ? Because currently i can return my card to shop and they will return money, But i paid 1240eur and 3080's in my country goes for 2600eur, they won't change my 3080 to another because prime price of new cards they got are too high. For 1240eur i can't even buy 3070 now. If someone managed to contact gigabyte please tell me how ??

If you have profs replace it with new one you have Warranty,

Friend from shop i bought told similar story, considering they don't have 3080s for same price i bought it, they would take it back and return money i paid and most likely sell it for 2x and if another person brings it back they would send it to gigabyte maybe, understandable situation, i paid 1240eur for mine and shop got it from supplier for 1100eur, in two months prices increased even more and they bought couple 3080s for 2k eur and selling them for 2.5k eur and it still sells. Ofcource it would benefit them to give me my 1240eur and sell it for 1k+ of profit to someone else. Hell no. For 1240eur I can't even buy 3070 now, prices are too insane. Maybe i overreacted, my 3080 still fine, after some research and you guys told the same, up to 110c it won't thermal throttle, i play mostly warzone with 80% fan and undervolt memory stays at 90c, i am fine for now... going to send it later to gigabyte.

well my 3090 is throttling like crazy and i just strapped a AMD wraith spire onto the backplate for the time being

still throttles but at least not as bad (still worse than msi card without modification, gigabyte cards are shiiiiiiiiiit)

the thing is there no gpu to replace it 🙂 and even if there was it would be same gigabyte card with same cheap thermal pads. Already got answer from gigabyte, i can't replace it myself because it will void warranty and i must to send it to them for diagnostics and repair even though problem is clear and would take me 20minutes to replace thermal pads with higer quality onces... shitty gigabyte... nothing changes...

i would send it but i don't have any backup card, and i heard it will take atleast month to get my card back, i can't buy any backup card either something like 1050 ti goes for 300 eur here. Meanwhile i sold my 1080 Ti for 350eur half a year ago to my friend... he could sell it for 700eur now no problem.. but he won't. there is nothing to buy

100 is pretty high for gaming use, just slightly high for mining. I don't think you will get anything from Gigabyte since it is still operating in spec. Does Europe have right to repair laws? If so then Gigabyte stance on opening the card is not enforceable. Thermalright Odyssey pads from AliExpress would do the trick.
