The Rudster So I upgraded from a 9600GT to this evga gtx 550 ti. I greatly enjoyed the improvements, I can now play all my games at max (Even Entropia Universe) but the big problem I have is the temperature, This is a standard card, no overclock but im reaching 65c idl and 82 during heavy games!!!! This is very high from what I have seen from what people talk about being a high temperature, I went from 42 idl 62 max on my 9600 to this? My case has 2 extra side fans and a large rare fan, the cooling should be fine but this card is getting way to hot!. Do I need to worry about this? The fan idles at 34%, I have tried setting it to max, gets the temp down by about 7 on idle but sounds like a jet. Any ideas? Thanks
Urban420I have the same problem as The Rudster, cept mine cuts out and crashes my games at high temp cut out. I have EVGA Precision installed and set the fan to max for gaming, have even try'd turning the clock and memory down to low but still cuts out. I running the EVGA GeForce 550 ti 2 gig card that came super clocked. all in all I don't feel that this card is worth the money I paid for it. EVGA recommends using a 1050 watt psu as the card pulls 400 watts by its self. I have awesome air flow with 5x140 mm fans, 2 intake and 3 exhaust, Exhaust fans are turned down by 1/3 speed to achieve positive air flow. but yet this still doesn't make a difference in the truly high temps of this gpu. Load temps of the gpu run around 120 to 131 degrees F, high temp cut out is at 131 F which seems very low for a gpu like this. My advice to you The Rudster try changing your psu to at least a 1000 watt psu. as you can see the people that are not having these excessive heat problems are running 1000 watt or higher psu's. personally i would rather opt for a different gpu like the msi gtx 1660 where you wont have these problems......
