mthompson2336I've been playing ark on 1440 on a evga XCO 2080ti. Ark is poorly optimized and runs a little warmer than most games, but the temp and fans were never much of a problem. On the 3090 (FTW Ultra) I'm idling at 59 degrees, which already seems high. Within 30 seconds of playing ark the gpu is at 85 degrees and the fans are making a ton of noise, 2300+ rpm. Check out these curves (this is 1440!): This doesn't seem right. GPU's running at 99% on the same settings as the 2080. Does this sound normal? X1 and firmware have been updated, along with nvidia driver. Case cooling isn't the best, but not terrible either (nzxt 510 elite w/ corsair aio on cpu, card in slot 1 with space all around)
Mondas42If the paste has dried out could that account for the difference some folks are seeing?
