Hello guys I need u advise in making agood airflow in my case as my card running so hot at loading it reach 84 c so any idea how many fans to add or what to do to reduce card temp as it hot in my area this days I have already two fans installed one is intake and one exhaust this the look

Probably normal, some gigabyte cards have shitty cooling and add to that a high ambient temp.

I know it cause the bad cooling system that gigabyte using so I was hoping to reduce it with the case fans

Hmmm, never seen a case with right side fan support. But according to this, that case comes with 1 x 120mm fan in front and 1 x 120mm fan in back. But it supports:

Fan Support:
  • Front: 3 x 120mm, 2 x 140mm
  • Top: 2 x 120mm
  • Rear: 1 x 120mm
  • Bottom: 1 x 120mm
  • Right Side: 2 x 120mm
I recommend you look at adding more fans, starting with putting 2 x 140mm in front.

You mean 140 mm.
How many degrees would you expect to drop the GPU's temp?

Use the Aorus engine software to make a more aggressive fan curve that will help a little.

Edit: Looking at your case and it's specs, is it actually taking much air in from the front, it looks like there is some density on the front panel, maybe add 2 x 120mm to the top...….

Yes, sorry. 140mm. Corrected above. Thanks for pointing that out.
How many degrees would you expect to drop the GPU's temp?
I have no idea. Technically 84°C at load for the GPU is not "hot".
as it hot in my area this days
If the room is air conditioned, the temp outside does not matter.

Depends on the airflow/rpm of the fans.
I agree. However, it should be noted that with all else being equal (notably blade pitch and blade width, as well as bearing type and construction), a 140mm fan will move a lot more air at any given RPM than a 120mm or smaller fan. What that means is you can reduce the rotation speed of the 140mm fan and still maintain the same air flow (CFM) as the 120mm. But, because the rotation speed is slower, fan noise will be too. Since I hate fan noise, that's a very good thing! :)

Did you try msi afterburner?
You could try a custom fan curve with it.

Give us some more data before you start tinkering and buying?

Please give us a log from MSI afterburner or a screenshot of the stats while gaming. Its helpful to know whether your GPU is throttling a little bit, or throttling really hard. That will tell you how much you need to fix.

84C means you're hitting the soft limit, the driver will try to reduce voltage and clocks to get below 84C, or hover just under it. It can do that in two ways, hard cutoff and dropping a few hundred mhz (big perf hit) or with small intervals called 'boost bins' of 13mhz. The latter is what you want, even if you can't get the temp that much lower than 84C. The GPU will then run happily every day.

If the standard fan curve gets you to these temps, just adjusting fan curve won't save you, that is for sure. Unless you like sitting next to a hair dryer all day...

I try the fan curve that I made the fans work at 100 % when like the temp reach like 79 c It reaches it and increases to about 83 or 84 the max temp it gets and never cross it 85 In the worst case

Correct, it will not pass 84C because the driver limits that. It does not tell you the GPU is running fine.

What are your clocks when you are stuck at 84C for a few minutes?

Here is my custom fan curve, I have an RTX2060 Super with an at best average cooler, the good thing is it remains pretty much silent up to 90% fan speed, with the fan on auto it would hit 84C, with this curve it never gets higher than 78C and that's in an unusually hot September UK temp of 29C ambient...……………..

Hey buddy. I've got a gigabyte rtx 2060 rev 2.0 and it reaches 74c to 75c in some games that are more intense . I have a CoolerMaster h500p mesh so maybe your tempature is to high

I also has the rev 2.0 card I think u getting the temp cause u case it has 2 intake fans in front 200 cm its push a good air I think that make u getting the temp
