dorsmanThis seems to be a common question but I am wondering what I should do about my setup. Photo attached. My temperatures are 80C while gaming (Metro Exodus) fans are at 60%. Anything more than that I find to be pretty loud. When I remove the side panels temperatures go to 76C. 80C though not dangerous for the hardware, is higher than I would like and higher than the reviews I read before purchasing. My case has 2 140mm intake fans on the front going at 1000 RPM, one 120mm exhaust fan at the back also at 1000 RPM, and then two 120mm exhaust fans at the top going at 1200 RPMs. My goal was to keep a rig that was more on the quiet side which is tough for this card. Any advice on my setup to decrease these temperatures? I was hoping to be in the 70s on the card with the side panel on. The card is in OC mode without any additional OC. Other than increasing fan speeds I am not sure what else to do. It's a smaller case (Meshify C mid) but still a mid tower. I know these cards pull a lot of power and therefore dump a lot of heat but I was just curious if anyone had any thoughts. Thanks.
streamrollerHello Today I experienced same thing. Playing Metro Exodus RT 4k gave me 74-75C with aggresive fan curve. My case is Enthoo 719 with 2 bottom intake 2 front AIO Intake and 3x 140 AER's. Hey I'm playing Metro Exodus too. in 4k, I have a question are you guys experiencing any kind of artifacts I mean is really micro but it just bugs the heck out of me. like little flicker of lights, this is the only game that is doing it, I too have EPIC Launcher maybe that is why I'm getting those flicker of lights, my temps hover around 62-65 so I'm pretty sure I'm good at that end. I really hope is the game and not my card because that would suck . I already playing Wolfenstein NC/destiny 2/ and DOOM all in 4k max setting and no flickers or issue, oh and also Battlefield V. So maybe is just Metro Exodus
RobleesaundersThis is why I upgraded some of my 120mm to 140mm. Any little bit helps. I plan on replacing the 120mm on top with a 140mm, and replacing the no name fan on bottom with the 120mm from the top.
FrammishBigger fans are definitely a factor for more airflow at lower noise levels. Good point!
