yaggazThank you. But reapply compound on a brand new card that's only had a few hours use?
aka_STEVE_bOnly 2 fans sucking in & 1 fan out might be a bit to little of airflow ? you can make sure it is not the card by taking off your side panel for freeflow air & retest your temps . What case are you using ? What are the rest of the system specs of parts in side the case ?
yaggaz Thank you again for the extra advice and comments it's very much appreciated. When you save up for a year and drop 700 for a video card it can get pretty nail biting when you worry something might be wrong. Anyway the case is nearly 12 years old. I seem to remember buying from a company called "3D Cool"? or such.

(55c to 55c idle min/max on hardware monitor on for three hours no ames played yet tonight)620 Watt Power Supply (Have a evga Bronze 750 watt shipping now to replace)Creative Labs X-Fi Sound CardGigabyte z270P-D3 Mb (27c to 44c on Hardware monitor min/max idle)i7700k (27c to 54c on Hardware monitor min/max idle)16 Gig Ram 2133 set to 2400 with XMPSeagate Barracuda 7200rpm 1TB ( 32c to 32c min/max etc)(The DVD drive is old broken junk that's unplugged that I've been too lazy to toss lol) Temp in my room is about 60 degrees f, (It's winter here in the mountains) What about one of those PCI slot fans above or below the RTX? Also I'm willing to spend up to 150 bucks on a new case that comes with QUIET (I hate fan noise) fans already installed that would be superb for this setup? I was googling last night but I am so indecisive. Anybody have a good recommendation on what they use? Update: Late last night When turning on vsync and limiting to 60fps the temperature sticks around 70c, but the whole reason I got a 2800 was to prepare for 144hz gaming at 1440p with a new monitor, but if I'm stuck at 60fps why bother now?
yaggazHaha thanks for the laughs on the case comments. I like that one you linked, but it looks to have only one fan on the front. Isn't ideal like two on the front, three exhausting? Thanks.
yaggazWow those are some nice pics. Amazing how the lighting can make something so effective also look so sweet, hehe. So with that setup what type of temperature you getting on your 2080ti under load and how quiet is it? Reasonably quiet is critical for me... Oh also did some tests I think it's pretty much the nail in the coffin that my case is garbage. Borderlands 31920x1080Unlimited frames, vsync off, AA off, AO low, Fog Medium:Regular Closed case on69 load CPU84 load GPURight side of the case off67 CPU76 GPUBoth sides off, room fan blowing directly into case (Idle before booting game, for the first time ever goes down to 41c from 55c)68 CPU67 GPUThanks for the case pics and those other ones named, GTXJack, time to do some review/research on these.
yaggaz55? That's jawdropping for under load. Considering mine is idling at that lol!! Yeah I agree, just me being ignorant of air flow and not researching it enough. The funny thing is I watched that video and was soaking all the info in before I came back to check here. It wasn't until he shows the two temperature comparison charts that I pleaded with my wife to net let my card die and go order a P400A asap ;) It was a tossup between that and the Coolermaster.
GTXJackBauerThe P400A RGB looks amazing if that's the one you got but regardless, it's a great budget case for its design. I can see your 2080 SUPER smiling from here.

chrisdglongI saw that picture and thought that you were messing around... You were really serious! HAHA. How could you know enough to buy a 2080, but not to buy a new case with better airflow?
kevinc313 My 2080 Ti hybrid idles at 26C and games at 50-55C, but it's an optimized setup and using 4K 60Hz vsync.
yaggazchrisdglongI saw that picture and thought that you were messing around... You were really serious! HAHA. How could you know enough to buy a 2080, but not to buy a new case with better airflow?Never had a heat problem with the last 5 video cards over the 12 years or so. For my part, Just lack of research on the 2800 I guess? No biggie, it'll all be good (I hope) when my new case gets here. On another random thought, somebody had mentioned the room temperature needing to be cool too? I think if the day comes that we also need our house air conditioned to stop video cards from burning out we'll have reached a high level of insanity
