I ordered RTX 2060 yesterday, but I have issue. In idle, It reaches 45-49 degress. My case has 2 fans. It is ATX case.

Which case please...?

Do you have a sound card or any other cards in nearby slots?..

go into nvidia control panel, change power setting to either adaptive, or power saving, then hit apply. it might help.
remember, your GPU will only be able to be as cool as your cases ambient, so whatever the temp in your case is, thats the LOWEST your GPU can be.

Does the card have a adaptive fan off feature? My XFX RX 480 has the fans off when idling unless the GPU heats up past 60° C. My GPU temperature fluctuates between 43-52° C when idle.

That card has just a block of aluminium with a few heatpipes to cool it, ofcourse it runs hotter than any other card with actual fins.

80c running the witcher isnt that unexpected ,. if you feel a temperature issue exists tho, your going to need ambient temperature. for all i know, your cases interior is 50C, which would make the 80C 100% load temps very normal. make sure you have good exhaust fans in the case.

you could also set a custom fan profile in MSI afterburner.

GPUZ is a good GPU monitoring program, that you can leave running in the background, and it will monitor your temps & perf, and let you see what is going on.

Whether I replace thermal paste, Will it changes?
it could, but id say it would be better off for you to get your ambient temperature, otherwise any effort in solving your issue might be wasted effort, as a issue might nnot exist

Msi afterburner, download it and set a more aggressive fan profile.

If I use this graphic card in 80 degrees, Will it reduces lifespan or it makes other risks?
it will slow itself down to accommodate the temperature if it gets too hot.
id highly suggest you follow the advice given earlier in the thread. the answers to this issue are in the thread.

good luck.

Knowing the card / case / fans would help .... when providing this infor looking for make and specific model example for Case = Phanteks Model Enthoo Pro M, Card =EVGA RTX 2060 XC Ultra, fans = Phanteks PH-SP140, 1200 rpm

MSI Gaming Z - 68C OC'd ... https://tpucdn.com/reviews/MSI/GeForce_RTX_2060_Gaming_Z/images/temperatures.png

Card - Idle Temp Load OC'd temp dbA
EVGA RTX 2060 XC Ultra 48°C 70°C 35 dBA
MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z 51°C 68°C 31 dBA
NVIDIA RTX 2060 Founders Edition 36°C 72°C 32 dBA
Palit RTX 2060 GamingPro OC 34°C 68°C 36 dBA
ZOTAC RTX 2060 AMP 34°C 72°C 40 dBA

With 70C being the worse case, and that's OC'd, it would appear you have other issues

1. What are room temps ?

2. Case / Card / Fan make and model numbers, fan rpm ?

3. Note that max temp is 88C ... it will throttle before that
https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/graphics-cards/rtx-2060/

Thermal and Power Specs:
Maximum GPU Temperature (in C) = 88
Graphics Card Power (W) = 160
Recommended System Power (W) = 500
Supplementary Power Connectors = 8 pin
4. To test for case ventilation adequacy, I use one of these ... take side panel off and blow air in with this ... if temps drop, more than 1.5C or so... more fans needed
https://www.amazon.com/Vornado-133-.../B00FGPWJXA/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1548267400

5. Make sure inlet fan filters are clean.

6. The 2070 starts to significantly throttle at about 80C ... I expect 2060 is doing the same.

6. Make sure air inlets are not blocked and that they exist. Often if using two exhaust fans... air exhaust from GFX card and PSU gets sucked right back into case from thru rear case grille. Good Rule of thumb ... 1.5 inlet fans for each exhaust fan.

I bought a Gigabyte Vega 64 Gaming card and was having the same issues as you. What I did was open the card only to find that most of the Thermal Paste was stuck in the heat pipes. I used some Noctua thermal paste and it dropped temps by over 20 C. From the low 80s to the low 60s when gaming.

In all fairness this looks like standard issue Nvidia to me - under a crappy cooling solution that is. These cards are made to run in the 80C region and will cap out at 83-84 C like you've experienced. The cards boost until they can't boost no more and the first thing they hit is the temperature limit built into the card.

A better cooled 2060 will not perform much differently, apart from the fact it will clock higher / can use more voltage until it hits the same limit you're seeing here. Or, it has the headroom to spin the fans at low(er) RPM for the same temperatures.

100% fan speed I would not recommend, as you see for yourself, it doesn't really do much for temperatures. A few degrees C isn't worth it. If its any comfort, I run my GTX 1080 at 80C more often than not, and I've done the same with every previous Nvidia card since Kepler (2012). No issues.

Don't straight up look at a review like @John Naylor linked above and 'conclude you have other issues'... your ambient temperature is almost certainly much higher than your typical review bench. Your equipment is heated up (many reviews are cold cards / briefly running cards) and perhaps your case airflow is a bit less optimal. All that together can easily account for 8-10C and you can't always 'fix' it. You can of course check all the boxes though

If your card consistently hits 85 C+ at gaming loads, thén you've got reason to worry.

I will try. I used GTX 1050 Ti, sometimes It reached 75 C and I replace paste, It reduced 10 C.

Actually no , but your temps should be lower than that , i mean those new cards are cold.

80C ain't nothing. I consider a GPU/CPU running too hot when it throttles.

Essentially, his card IS throttling. 1860mhz isn't a whole lot. It is still possible to get it higher probably, but as soon as Nvidia GPUs hit 83C they will cut down hard on voltage and that means major clockspeed loss as well.

;) Hardcore. I'm sure that this GPU throttles already. As be asked all ready room temperature and what have not been asked case temperature. Makes a big difference. I owned a few identical MSI (3 x970 with each a different bios and fan profile, 2 RTX 2070 with different operating temperature due to fan profile and kick-down clock). 80-90 C is to high even for a modern card but the manufacture will ensure that it clock down to what they deem a safe temperature. I just don't like to see any thing above 65....and we are talking PC hardware, behave.
