Now I have pushed my 2080 Ti FTW3 and HWiNFO iCX sensor readings are working I can see the memory temps reaching 75C. The memory temps seem to differ quite drastically (10-20C) from the power and GPU temps. 75C is within spec (although getting pretty high) but I am just wondering if it is normal for the memory temps to differ so drastically? I actually recall when I first got the 1080 Ti FTW3 that it's memory also reached the 70's but over time seemed get to lower. Does memory have a break in period where it initially runs hot and cools over time? My other thought would be the thermal pads over the memory are not working as well as they could?

    Is that in gaming or a benchmark? What is your screen resolution/graphics details? The above screenshot was taken with Anthem near maxed out at 3440x1440 90 fps...

    In everything.
    Usually barely 60 in game.
    And even in stuff like AC odyssey max settings 4k, but your gpu is also a good bit hotter. Case airflow makes a good difference
    Also worth noting my vram is at 8000mhz

    This is the 2080 Ti FTW3 (air cooled card) that you have right? Not water cooled? I would like to think I have good case airflow, 2x140mm intake, 120mm rear exhaust and CPU on a top mount 2x140mm AIO. Fans are run at 1000-1300 rpm. Oh and a bottom mount 120mm under the GPU at 700-800 rpm. What is your room temperature? I know that can affect temps drastically... I'm room ambient at 23-24C.

    Usually 66-69°f
    And I've got a fully loaded phantom 820, 200mm front intake, 140mm bottom intake, 140mm mid fan blowing right at the GPU, 2x 200 top exhaust and 140 rear exhaust.
    It's also mesh side panel next to the GPU, helps vent the hot air.
    Been waiting on this glass craze to pass as an insulating wall isn't the best for temps lol

    Maybe it's your mesh side panel keeping you a bit cooler. Your room temp is also 4-8C cooler and that's quite significant. When I get my monitor back I will test my other games. Perhaps it is just Anthem ramping the memory temps so high. What fan speeds do you use and what are power and GPU temps like?

    Mine pushed about 66C under load with the stock cooler. I bought the hybrid kit, put it on and now I idle about 32C and under load about 56C....
     
    I'm going to take it apart and put some decent TIM on it (that was with stock TIM) and see how it does.
     
    The hybrid kit I have is quiet ...and lowered the temps ..so I'm happy with it..

    On both of mine, MEM2 always reads higher, but I find it interesting that mem3 is reading higher, I don't think I have ever had that.
     
    Missing/poorly placed thermal pad maybe.  MEM2 I see as high as my GPU fairly consistently.

    One of the Advantages of EVGA cards - You are allowed to remove the heatsink - change TIM or Thermal pads

    This.
     
    Since I've purchased an AIO for the CPU, I'm going to re-TIM my GPU's hybrid kit...see if that helps any.

    Temps look fine to me. Anything up to 95c is fine, but lower temps are always better.

    Does anybody know what thickness thermal pads the FTW3 has or make a recommendation? It appears my memory temps are higher than reported by other owners in the thread so maybe I do have poor thermal pad contacts.

    How do the memory temps look for Heaven at the extreme preset? Obviously they're still running higher than the rest of the board. If it was a thermal pad issue what would it be? Need to know what to look for...

    Thanks. It would be great if we could get a more accurate comparison of peoples memory temps. We could use Heaven on the extreme preset as a baseline test. Anyone interested?

    I have this issue too. I hope EVGA can give me that answer about the higher temp. with MEM2 and MEM3.
    Is it related to the brand of the MEM?
     
    There're lots of threads about this.

    I don't think it is memory brand, but when you see reports of memory hitting 90C+ there is clearly a problem. Those of use hitting high 70's I'm guessing we're suffering from whatever the issue issue is just to a lesser degree.

    @xblackvalorx

     
    I've seen you comment in a few of the memory temp related threads. In one you said temps in the 70's were fairly typical over the card/s you have had but in this thread you said you don't break 65C. Can you clarify? How many cards have you had and are you saying your current card has the best temps of the bunch? If you have noted varying temps over different cards this means there is an issue with the card we need to look into...

    I wanna know whether it is related to bad contact or application of the thermal paste.
    If yes, should I replace them myself or not?

    That's exactly what I want to know... But maybe we're the ones to find out?
     
    Thermal paste likely affects the GPU only. Apart from thermal pads I don't know what else would cause particularly hot memory. When memory hits 90C is it the memory itself or something else?

    But I'm interested that many people here have such problems. It's so stranger to say that it's the problem about the thermal paste.
    If this is the case, then the quality problem deserves to be suspected.

    "If you go looking for trouble, you're going to find it."

    You guys really are making something out of nothing. There is no "problem" with your memory temps in the mid-70's. 

    As Sajin pointed out, anything up to 95C is safe. yes you want it lower for some head room but anything under 80 is absolutely nothing to worry about. 
     
    Stop overthinking things and go spend some more time playing games and enjoy your GPU. 

    For reference, I've seen my MEM2 get into the low-mid 70's. Nothing is going to blow up. Everything is just fine.

    Some people smear liquid metal between the memory and the pads for improved cooling.
    On the side of the pads and the heat sink you can only apply liquid metal on non aluminum parts. It'll corrode the aluminum real bad.

    It appears to me it's the GPU core that heats the memory up, not the amount of memory being used. Heaven bench uses a small amount of vram and the memory temps steadily climbed at the same pace as the GPU. Ultimately the vram is climbing another 10C though. Maybe stronger thermal pads could keep the vram cooler.

    I'm not looking for trouble, just pursuing the best temperatures I can.
