Is 44 degrees normal for just watching youtube with a 3070?

Go to solution Solved by Mark Kaine,

Yeah, with latest drivers etc its apparently "normal".  

 

Yet my 1060 plays the same yt videos at ~35C. Its a mystery!

 

I don't know if it affects it at all, but I have two monitors. But my temps get up to 44 celsius and take a long time to go down.

I'd say it all depends on ambient room temperature and case fans providing adequate cooling. I think it's even possible to set MSI Afterburner's custom fan curve to not even turn the fans on until the GPU hits a certain temperature (like 50c) to minimize noise, and 44c is definitely a safe temperature. That said, ideally, I think 30-35c would be normal for an idle 3070 with proper cooling with a 20c ambient temperature.

I have a custom fan curve for my gpu, it turns on at 58 degrees. And I normally have my fan on in my room too .

That temp is fine, GPUs tend to run warmer than CPU's anyway.
