Nereus Should not be doing those temperatures at stock settings. Could be a crap thermal grease application, so you could try redoing the tim and see if that resolves it, or just RMA.
hidetoshi2So you think it's the cooling and nothing with the card itself ? But this card should be able to run high fps in a game like fortnite without overheating right ? I heard when these cards were made there were some bad batch with the mem itself .I already started with the return process and will test again with the new card see if the problem still exist
hidetoshi2The card is set like any other cards . I did no OC. Had no idea temp went that high . Only found out after pc crashed . I speculated it was because of temp and went into HW monitor to test .

I speculated it was because of temp and went into HW monitor to test .Sorry to come off as harsh, but you're making a few glaring mistakes: - You already have a warm room and need to be extra careful with your cooling. - The card is not "like any other cards". It's a 300 watt, $1400 top end GPU. As Jack said, it's TWICE the power of your old card. It's also finicky, they all are. - The card needs two entirely separate PSU 8 pin cables. I'm guessing you used an existing single cable with daisy chained connectors. - The card produces a massive amount of heat at the stock settings (300w vs. 260w reference card), has a massive air cooler and needs a massive amount of air flow that actually gets to the card. One front air intake fan is NOT cutting it. Take your two top fans and mount them in the front, so you have three front intakes and a rear exhaust. Then make sure the fans are running fast, at about 80%+ when gaming. YOUR CURRENT CONFIG IS STARVING THE CARD OF AIR. - You're not using vsync, which is allowing the GPU to just sit there slamming the power limit and obviously overheating. You don't have the cooling config to run the card at constant full power. The card will hit the 83C thermal limit, overshoot, cut power, etc, and then eventually shut down to protect itself. VSYNC caps the frame rate, restricting the load and keeping things cooler. If you don't want to use vsync you need to cut the power limit or fix the cooling. - EVGA's stock bios fan settings are absolutely preposterous, very few people use them because we don't want our $1000+ cards running silly hot. Most people set a reasonable fan speed for idle in the 30's and then enough fans to keep it under 70C gaming. - You keep running the card against the temp limit, potentially putting it under increased wear and tear and limiting it's useful life. Maybe the TIM is bad or the card is bad, but there are many other things being done that are causing the problems.
hidetoshi2I dont think my carbide 200R case would be able to fit 3 fans in front and on the sides.
hidetoshi2I also did use 2 separate cables but they are 6pin with the 2 . This is a corsair 750w bronze
chrisdglongThis is most definitely the card. Your RMA should fix it. EDIT: While you are at it, you should probably fix this: "I got a Corsair Carbide Series 200R ATX Case. It has one fan on front, 2 fans on top and 1 in the rear." I would say that that case does not have the greatest cooling for a card like this. It needs more intake fans. You are sucking out all of the hot air, but mainly passively pulling in cool air. However, it still should not be reaching those temps. I have a 1080Ti in a Corsair 280X Micro Case and might see a max temp of right around 70c (@near 100% utilization). That's a pretty tight case and it is still able to cool the GPU down.
