Why is it so goddamn hot?


Despite having a couple of fans in my pc it still seems to run very hot. This is what Corsair "ICUE" said my temps were after 10 min. of Minecraft with shaders. I have included a picture of how my fans are blowing.

I assume temp 2 is the hotspot of the GPU, which is good til 110c or so.  The 83c for a 2060 struggling to handle MC unoptimized shaders from a unpaid mod... in line.


CPU is decently cool.  


Very normal.

Minecraft with shaders

minecraft with shaders is quite GPU intensive. This is normal

this isn't that hot, temp 2 is probs the hotspot which will always be at least 10 degrees more than the average. You can try undervolting the GPU with the guide in this vid from 13:50 on how to undervolt it 

Message me on discord (bread8669) for more help
