Inno3d GeForce RTX 2080 Super Twin X2 OC very hot under load, what can I do?

Today arrived my brand new RTX 2080 Super, which made by Inno3D. It costed me a lots of money in my standards, it is a dual 92 mm fan 1,2 kg card, I thought the cooling will be okay. They were very generus, I got in the box a mouspad, a full version of 3DMark and a Bundle code for the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which will release in the near future. I never had problem with brand new cards temps. My old MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X was the north pole compare to this card. It runs under Control 84-85 °C and loud. I carefully disassembled the card, not broke the warrenty sticker and I applied Arctic Cooling MX4 paste, but maaaybe 1 degree went down, but nothing significant. The cooler doesn't use heatpipes, instead a big copper plate and aluminium lamellas, 2x92 mm fans. But it looks cool and not cheap. When it's under 50 degree the fans stops, but under game it's horrible. This is a factory overclocked model, it pushes near to 2000 mhz when around 70 °C and even when around 85 °C it runs 1850 mhz. I saw some Zotac bioses in the bios list in the page and Zotac RTX 2080 Super Twin Fan has lower boost temp and I assume lower power draw. Do you think it worth flash with this bios, or I would brick the card? I never flashed any card before. Anyway, any help could be useful, because in my countrey where I bought the card, they told me the high temperature is not covered by warrenty and the card should run fine... In normal shops in the capital of my countrey there is a rule, that if the card doesn't work as I wanted I can send back in the first 24 hours, but here, they told me I could go far far away, they don't bother with my problem.

More info: The card in a NZXT Manta, so it is in a small case. Here is a pic about the case inside with the card: 2x140 mm intake, 2x120 mm exhaust and the AiO is 280mm and exhaust too (the fans under the cover).

If you have any good advice thank you for advance!
Peter!

Could you stick an extra fan pointing toward the video card and report the temps to see if it changes anything? I have a feeling that tight space might be restricting airflow.

Worth a try! I have an extra Pure Wings 2 pwm, somehow I try to put next to the card.

I run a 2080ti in Cosmos S and see similar thermals. To be blunt, you either need to go hybrid cooling or custom water to bring thermals down. It is what it is.

I tried out, it didn't helped a lot, maybe 2 degrees, but there is no "good room" for another fan. Thank you for your help. :)

I thought about it, I was thinking I will buy a NZXT Kraken G12.

Something not right either with card or case cooling. Review of the card:

Even Nvidia FE reference outperfoms it in cooling, but still showing better results than you are getting.

Your case design isn't good for GPU sucking fresh air from beneath there's very little space that's way it's slightly hotter than normal.

Yes, air flow is choked under the card. You need a bigger case unfortunately...

I will go with NZXT Kraken G12 and I will use a 120 mm AiO for the GPU which will be an exhaust. (the cost is similar, like buying a bigger and good quality case)

I looked at pictures of your case - basically the front of your case is double filtered and youve swapped out the stock fans for something more silent which probably most likely cant move a whole lot of air when faced with so many restrictions...



Your noctua fans have to pull air through the mesh on the front panel before it gets pulled through the dust filter.

if you switch out the front fans for something more static pressure orientated then you might see lower temps.

Just my $2

I replaced the front fans, because I used 2x120mm BeQuite! Pure Wings 2 at maximum speed and it hitted the 84 °C always, I thought the Noctua 140 mm fans will be better and if I put my hand in front of the fans, they move a lots of air, but it isn't enough for that cooling. Tomorrow arraives my NZXT Kraken G12 AiO bracket + a Corsair H55 120mm AiO, I will use as an exhaust and I read a lot about it and it works on RTX 2080 ti too and helps to reduce the GPU's temperature around 60 °C and it comes with a 92 mm silent fan, which cooling the VRMs, so basically I will make my card as a hybrid card.

Im not sure that kraken would help very much if your case had bad/poor airflow to begin with - Do what Eidairaman suggested and try to take the front mesh off the plastic front panel Your case already has a dust filter so getting rid of the mesh on the front facia would be quite a boost. It looks like its either hot glued or screwed in....

Nzxt Manta has a very good airflow, the only problem, that the videocard heatsink is suffocating, because there is not enough room, the NZXT KRAKEN G12 will help to bypass the small room for the GPU fans via. it will be an AiO not an actual fan.

Since you are not answering my question, if your room temperature is 77 or 80+ degrees farenheit you are just blowing hot air on an already hot component and that won't help it at all. It doesnt matter if you have a heatsink or water block.

I made the mod on my GPU. Now it only runs MAX 58-61 °C at 1950 mhz, altough my CPU which is a Intel Core i5 9600k overclocked to 5ghz usese a NZXT Kraken x62 a little hotter, it doesn't mean any serius sometimes hits the 60 degree mark. I put the Corsair H55 AiO in the fron as an intake and I had to replace my Noctua 140 mm fan to a BeQuiet! Pure Wings 2 120 mm fan as an intake and my exhause is a BeQuite! as well. I only have 1x120mm intake and the Corsair H55 120mm fan's as an intake as well. My 280 mm AiO as an exhaust on the top, because the heat rises and I have a rear fan as an exhaust, I don't know this is a good solution, but the temps much better, than it was before.

Are you using msi afterburner or another program to control your fans? Try setting a custom 2 point fan curve to 30% @ 30degrees and 80% @ 60degrees.

The problem is everything controlled by the motherboard, because I didn't have PWM to VGA fan adapter. So the Afterburner shows 0rmp. :D But at least I can watch the temps with it.
