Hi there !!

Is it a normal functionning temperature in game for this kind of card ?

My CPU hit 60-70°C during games ( CIV VI and PREY for example ) and my CG is always around 82°C ... I wondering to know if it's okay ?

No, it's not. Considering that it only is loaded @67%, it shouldn't hit 82°C.

What exact model are you using and what case is it in?

If I were you I would create a custom fan profile in MSI afterburner. Newer cards have "silent fan" technology where they will go up to about 40°C before the fan even turns on , in my experience sometimes this is too late and not aggressive enough to control temperatures, especially if you have a smaller case.

Just take five or 10 minutes and test different profiles and see what works best for you, also remember that your card will only be as cool as the air it's getting @ it's intake, so if the inside of your case is 50°C ,that's going to be as cold as it gets at idle.

I've made some tests, open case, close case, fan speed at 25% or 100% ( 1 fan on front panel, 1 on the up and 1 on the back )

Nothing change ...

And in afterburner, i cannot adjust speed fan, it seems its not allowed ..

I would echo m&m's question about the case- if the card is starved of cool air it won't be able to cool properly.

Shouldn't be topping 70C during normal gaming.

That's my point Beastie , didn't you see my case on photo ? my case is opened, and fans are moving air in and out of it ... CPU fan get the same air, and its cooler, around 70°C...

If I were you I would create a custom fan profile in MSI afterburner.

Impossible to change fan speed, it's locked

Where are you going to change fan speeds for different temperatures? A profile will change it automatically as temperatures change. Hit the asterisk type button 2/3 of the way down. This will bring up MSI Afterburner Properties. Pick the tab that says fan.

in a open cupboard please =)

I expect the air go through fans to the components. I've tryed with closed case to optimize air flow, but nothing changed.

Or maybe I got any air flow :(

...

You have your PC IN A CUPBOARD.

How exactly do you expect the chassis to get any airflow?
Yeah, OP, it may be convenient, but that may possibly be the worst place to put your case. The person who came up with those as an idea should not be allowed to design anything ever again.

Do you see the light blue button at the bottom that looks like a star? It is the left of 3 in a row. Press that.

Sorry I missed the attachment.

Take it out of the cupboard for starters.

What fans are where on the case?

As rtwjunkie says MSI Afterburner will let you make fan profiles.

I'm sorry if it hurts your eyes, but my wife and I moved a couple of time , and we changed my desk, and now I got this desk, no choice ... I'm trying to get it the best I can. It's also opened for a cupboard, and most of fans can work correctly I hope.

:D No it doesn’t hurt my eyes. I don’t care what it looks like at all. It’s just very bad for airflow. Is the back at least open so that the rear exhaust fans can send hot air out from the desk?

Get the case out of the cupboard for testing purposes, if temps are still this high then it's not the cupboard. If temps do improve then you'll know why it's so high.

First i always assume it's sensor err so touch it to make sure the temp
2nd test the airflow, make sure the hot air out and cold air in
3rd clean everything, you may have some dust there that make the heat trapped
4th considering replacing thermal paste
5th i forgot, check your fans too any profile or some fans may not work well
6th check, always recheck coz you could miss something
7th if problem occur make update in this thread

Goodluck

I think you should turn all your fans to intake, even add one to the front, with the PSU being the only one venting to the back. With an open case, side off, I would want massive intake. With intake from 3 angles, it should clean and cool itself better.

My 2 cents. I may be wrong.

Try the beta version (4.6.0) for fan speed control. The official release version (4.5.0) doesn't give me fan speed control either but the beta version does.
