Hi guys I've just bought an refurbished Gigabyte RTX 2060 Windforce OC (dual fan) and the temperatures are quite high so is the fan speed.
Are those temperatures normal? I have it in a CoolerMaster H500P mesh case.
I didn't had these high temperatures in the past with any gpu.
Is the cooler that bad? If yes, are there any replacements.
I payed only 167 pounds for the card so I won't mind paying something extra for a cooler, I just need to know if there are any options out there for mine.

We had that discussion already with another GB owner. Have a read HERE

160Watt TPD with that small 2 heatpipe cooler...yeah fat chance its on its limit.
My recommadation Accelero Xtreme IV comes close to water cooling.

Normal temps for that heatsink.

I might be wrong but AFAIR the cooler on 2060 Windforce OC was different. If thats the case Gigabyte removed the old pictures on their site, maybe because they already updated the cooler design. Im pretty sure the pictures on their site suggested that the 2060 Windforce OC was the same board design as the current RTX 2060 OC (GV-N2060OC-6GD) and RTX 2060 OC 6GB (GV-N2060OC-6GD). AFAIR the cooler was the same as on the 2060 OC 6GB (GV-N2060OC-6GD). Two 6mm heatpipes are good enough for your 2060 which should have relatively high board power limit (200W), thats assuming the rest of the cooler is properly built. Yours its not because it has extruded aluminium heatsink which is not good enough at dissipating the heat. Such design would've been more than fine for GTX 1650 and maybe 1660/1660Ti. There maybe other flaws and questionable decision like cealing the end of the card, if It turns out I was right.

It looks like @mstenholm has the GV-N2060OC-6GD which also looks like to have an updated heatsink.

My recommendation is to lower the TDP limit to 75-80% and see how the clocks are. That should significantly lowet the temps without sacrificing much clock speeds, if any. You can try changing the paste but I doubt that would lower the temps, unless Gigabyte used some really bad stuff. I dont think Gigabyte will replace the card because 83C is ''withing specs''. Absolutely dont buy Accelero Xtreme VI, nor III. If its from Arctic's catalogue id be looking at the Mono Plus or maybe some old dead GPU with decent heatsink for ''transplantation''.

No, thats ridiculous cooler for such card.

I'll go with the overkill solution, I just need to be sure it fits my card, but I don't know for sure.

Did you see the link I posted above? If you still doubt then contact them.
Overkill means the posiblity to keep the temperature below 50 degree C and a higher clock.

I checked the manufacture home page, this cooler comes in two pieces, THE MAIN cooler mounts directly to the GPU, only thing you need to worry about are the mounting holes which are comaptiable, the other thing is mounting the small heatsinks on your ram and VRM, WHICH IS EASY. IT WILL FIT.

Thanks guys, I'll order one today. The only thing that worries me is that I won't get those thermal pads in the right sport.

Please post a GPU-Z under similar conditions as the one you gave us already. I had one years ago, can't remember on which card, but I was pleased with performance and noise.

MSI all 7 GPUs.
Why not go for overkill? I would.
Didnt quite understand what you've wanted to say.
If you are talking about the MSI cards. Well, MSI also have 2060's with really unoptimal coolers. Ventus XS and Ventus XS OC are the two. The non-XS Ventus is pretty solid.

I'll go with the overkill solution, I just need to be sure it fits my card, but I don't know for sure.
First of all clarify whats your gpu board and cooler design and in what workloads you get 81C ? Is it the same board/cooler design as the 2060 6G OC ? If not, I really doubt the other design would keep the card at 81degrees, assuming reasonaby high RPM > 1500+.

Keep in mind the smaller PCB (that has the VRM on the left) has different hole spacing and even if that turns out not to be a problem, I still would not put a big and heavy cooler on such a short PCB.

Extreme IV doesnt make any sense for RTX2060. Ive red pretty bad stuff about the mounting and AFAIK you cant mount it without the backplate, which BTW is not the most effective. This cooler was popular during the 780/290 days, way back. It absolutely doesnt make sense for a modern card, maybe 2080Ti since those GDDR6 IC's can get hot, but only in case you really push the card and the backplaye actually works. On top o that it takes 4 PCI-E expansion slots. If you wanna go balls to the wall better buy the Extreme III, since you have the space. Its not gonna be a bad investment, especially if you upgrade to 2080, 1080Ti, 2080Ti later down the line. Its really meant for those cards.

You wrote that I have a GB 2060. I just corrected you since you didn't bother to read my sys. spec.

But I did bother to read your thread well before the creation of this took place, your Highness

Every AIB can have unoptimal and even inadequate card. In that case (If my memories were right) Gigabyte underastimated the TDP, maybe because didnt have the information about what the card will be. Or maybe they were too full of themselves like Asus, since 80% of their 1660 and 1660Ti have totally inadequate coolers.

Can you please share whats your GPU's heatsink and in what game/workload you get those temps ? Im just curious to know if the finned design is really that bad. I kinda doubt it, especially with 1900+ rpm fans.

Never use Furmark for testing, Furmark is literally A BURN IN test the worst out of the worst you will ever do to your card. Its unrealistic loading your gpu.
If you want a fair and really heavy test for your card use Heaven Benchmark

I ran furmark in the past on Gpus like 960 and 970 MSI gaming X, also I ran it on a gtx 1060 Windforce 2x that reached 72C and about 66% fan speed. I think the cooler on mine is quite similar with the one on the 1060

The Xtreme IV is a no go for me, because it has that huge backplate/heatsink and it will mess with my CPU cooler

There aren't any solutions on the market besides Arctic?

No you can not take the extrem III IT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH RTX CARDS. Well not out of the box, on the page it reads ""
# Upgrade kit is available for boards with 48x48mm and 51x51mm mounting hole. Please contact ARCTIC Customer Support.""
It also says ''The compatability list is based on AMD and Nvidia's reference board layout only''. His PCB is not the reference 2060/2070 one, but on the renderings on Gigabyte's site is kinda hard to see if the card has the necessary holes. The bigger models based on the RTX 2080 PCB should have them, but with his card that might not be the case.

I was running Furmark.
Also do I need any sort of fan adaptors for those coolers?
Well that explains it. I would not change the stock cooler, will just tweak the TDP limit and maybe change the paste since you are comfortable disassembling the cooler. That will inrease the clock speeds. If you are after a maximum clock speeds (below 60C) and better acoustics then the purchase will be justified, but I think you can achieve that with something smaller, but then the price might be higher acoustic levels (that doesnt mean uncomfortable levels).
I was looking if your card is sealed off like the ones with shorter PCB , but its not, or at least not to the same extent. If your card was out of warranty you might want to cut the blocking part. Thats a bit exaggerated but it might help.

On Arctic's site says ''If your RTX board does not have a 4-pin fan header, you can contact ARCTIC Customer Support for a 14-pin adapter cable''. Yours should have a 4-pin header since it has a passive mode.

Also watch out for the VRM temps since your card probably has 4+1, or 4+2 phase VRM.

I just ran Unigine2, 2 times in a row, I've changed the thermal paste with something from thermal grizzly and the old paste was applied properly and I get the same temps so the cooler is garbage.
I do want a better cooler, this one is loud as fuck, it's better of on a 1050 ti or 1060.
So is the Arctic xtreme III gonna work or there isn't any cooler out there?
