Are these temps too high?

These temps were taken after around 20 mins of gameplay, max settings 1440p. No DLSS no RT on. Ambient temps were around 26c to 27c. I had a mild oc of 100mhz core, 1100mhz mem. Stock fan curve. Removing the OC the temps dropped by 1-2c. Card is the EVGA XC3 ULTRA. This is odd because from reviews I see the card hanging in the 60's. My card reached 81c.

If it's a mildly airflow restricted case, that's to be expected. Are those core temps or mem temps.

Should be core temps (that's what RivaTuner usually gives)

A bit high, you're close to throttling temp, gotta move more air either by the GPU fans or better case airflow

You could try undervolting. It can drop temperatures by a lot.

CPU temps are fine and everything, GPU temps are pretty high for a 3070 XC3, my 3080 XC3 (same cooler) ran at 70C in game while consuming over 50% more power. It would help to know the fan configuration and what case you're using but temps for that card, while safe, are a fair bit higher than they should be, even for a meh case.

Is there simply something wrong with the card? Would an RMA fix this? Really bummed out since the card runs hot and loud. Removing case side panel drops temps by around 2-3c.

Seems high, but what case do you have?  How's the airflow?  

 

Side panel removal isn't a solution, as that just allows more ambient air but doesn't improve airflow, which is what removes the hot air from building up.

81 is really hot. Your case and fan setup is probably to blame.

That's about what you expect to see with a 2-slot XC3 card. the cooler is kinda crap.

 

Though I'm seeing 2010Mhz boost clock in that screenshot so clearly it doesn't care. 

 

Improve case airflow or undervolt if it concerns you though it shouldn't.

Other reviews online show the card not reaching 70c ever.

Not sure what to do here. Maybe an RMA is possible because reviews of this card show it never reaching 70c.

Do you know the case, fan setup and ambient temp in their testing environment? Real world, 2-slot XC3's have been really bad across many generations of cards.

yes but still a 20c difference seems way to much of a difference.

Have you played with the fan curves? If they aren’t too noisy at 1150RPM, try them at 1350-1400. Don’t know if it’ll do much, but some of Corsair’s fans aren’t great for airflow, so more may be needed is what I’m thinking…

 

Wait, is that a tempered glass front on the case? If so, your front intakes are compromised. & if they’re inefficient fans to begin with, low-mid RPM speeds won’t be enough.

 

Test things with the glass front removed also.

Not sure what to do here. Maybe an RMA is possible because reviews of this card show it never reaching 70c.

First, check that the GPU's cooler makes good contact with the PCB (squeeze the card and the cooler to see if it gives a little). If it does RMA the card.

Otherwise, the case has really bad airflow.

Remove the tempered glass at the front, up the GPU fan curves with EVGA Precision X1 and remove the top fan from your front panel. 
The top fan creates a vortex that goes right into the top rad and prevents the bottom air from moving around, creating a hot pocket at the bottom.

You could also remove some PCIE covers to help the air flow , I know it's not super aesthetics but it's better than burning your GPU in 1-2 years.
You temp should come down significantly.

The you can start putting stuff back in to find an acceptable aesthetics/performance/noise compromise.

Ok so I will remove all glass side panels and run the gpu fans at a constant 2400rpm and report back with temps.
