RTX 3080 running at 90 degrees Celsius

Mayngo
 Share

I purchased the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Turbo (rev. 2) about 7 months ago, its thermals have been around 90 degrees Celsius and it sounds like a rocket is taking off in my room all the time. I sent it into Gigabyte and they said there was nothing wrong with it so I then called them and they said the operating temperature of the card is 100 degrees Celsius and that I could not get a replacement unless it went above that. Does anyone have any suggestions as for what I could do make the temps lower or a way I could get a refund? My case is the corsair 5000D airflow and I have 6 fans.

You might be having a case with good airflow and a 6 fans but,
make sure that all the fans are blowing in the correct direction, so that you have a proper push pull config,
maybe this can help you out with that

Yep I already have the fans blowing in the correct push pull configuration.

I mean, you literally bought a GPU with a leafblower strapped to it, can't really make that thing quiet or cool unless you buy an aftermarket cooler for it. There is nothing wrong with the card, there just is a reason why all other 3080 cards have massive coolers.

 

If performance loss isn't a problem to you, download MSI afterburner, set the power limit to 50% or lower, and create a custom fan curve, also using MSI afterburner. That will make it tolerable, at the cost off producing much less heat, but also much less fps.

 

 

I only see your reply if you @ me.

lol I think the leaf blower would do a better job cooling it, I guess I'll just buy a sound card so I can use my ANC headphones.

Why do you need a sound card for that? My ANC headphones connect fine to motherboard 3.5mm port.

But to add more info about my reply, blower style coolers can only really cool low power components, 3050 is the highest I would go with that design.

A blower cooler was only strapped to 3080 and 3090 for mining, because the rig is in a separate room, and they don't care if the cards run loud and hot.

So you basically bought a mining card, that is not meant for gaming.

Get a watercooling GPU AIO...It's like $250 but for a $1000 card it's not that much 🙂

Your temps are super high tho for a good airflow big case, my GPU is a basic 3080 Eagle put in my PC under my desk (so well a bit choked), and before I'd put in on watercooling it reached max 80C...

You could try undervolting too

I was going to rhetorically ask why for all that is good would anyone make a two slot blower style 3080... But then you went ahead and answered that question...

@MayngoIt's too late to return it, so your only good option is to replace the cooler. Other than that, best case scenario it breaks and when they send an RMA replacement they don't have stock of the blower style and they send you something that isn't seemingly designed to fail.

@Origami Cactus I need a sound card because when I have headphones connected they sound awful both wired and bluetooth and I bought it as it was the only avaliable option at the time after going to micro center for like 10 mornings in a row especially when its not near to where I live. Thanks for the feedback though!
