Or.. you can just buy and install an aftermarket gpu cooler and be done with this.

This is what i've done with my Gigabyte 1060 Windforce (because one of the fans died after warranty expired and the other one was making noises), so i decided to buy a new cooler instead of replacing the fans. Besides, the cooler of my Gigabyte card is awful as well.
Results?
About 58c Max temp with 100% gpu usage in gaming, with Turbo boost permanently staying betwen 1920-1935ΜΗz. Around 22-23c idle. And 63c in Furmark with post fx enabled.
That's great but buying an aftermarket AIR cooler so you can do the same thing you should be doing with the one you got with the card, especially on a midrange GPU like this, is a horrible waste of time and money AND warranty in some cases.

1. According to nVidia, throttling on 2xxx starts at 80C so if it is hitting 84C, it's throttling, unless the argument is nVidia and TPU are clueless..
That's the temperature target, the boost algorithm will start to pare back clocks long before that target is reached. Not to mention that it probably hits TDP and voltage limits before it even gets close to 80c.

There is a trigger point at 84C, cards are always putting the target at 80C to keep the GPU under 84C.

Why accept a crap product? If you just bought it and haven't already voided the warranty. Send it back and get a decent card.

As i've said, the card was out of warranty. And that was just my humble opinion.
I am sure you know by experience, that in many cards especially the budget versions, the coolers are just adequate.

In many cases a good aftermarket cooler is worth the money in terms of silence, cooling and performance since a cooler gpu can remain in high boost clocks all the time.

P.S. Also a good aftermarket cooler can possibly be installed on your next card as well.

I used other case and It reached 85 C. I sent to Gigabyte technical service, after I went to PC operators and they thought that It has got a problem. I'm waiting Technical Service for card's change.
Any updates? Did they give you another one?

If you still have issues I'd recommend buying an Arctic Mono Plus, under full load in demanding games I rarely exceed 45*C with my 1060 6GB mini. Before that I would hit 80*C. The Mono Plus only costs around $30.

They said It hasn't issues but I called back and they said you give to us and we try to fix or give other one. I hope that They give to new one and they approve the issue.
If they are going to give you the same exact card back with the dual fan solution then the heat is likely still going to be an issue. its not the first time gigabyte have put just below acceptable coolers on their graphics cards to save money. the Gaming OC models tend to be the cheapest. so of course the manufacturers has to find a way to cut costs somewhere.

I can't quite understand why a brand new 2060 would have any warranty issues.... But speculating on the cause of the problem is not worth our T & E until the oft repeated question of ambient temps is answered. If it's 95 F in room... 80 to 84C is great temps; it's not the card's fault

Hope we'll see a great result of their investigation. But anyway, shame on gigabyte!

i have Zotac AMP edition and get 80c too, with a closed case and 4 fans, two intake and two exhaust, Looking for more people with my same model in a real situation, they get similar result, after 10 minutes 78/80c and increases a bit in a long session, very far from the "70/72" of the review, it happens that most tests are done in open environment, with the fan speed to the maximum. I had another open case that I have and the result was similar. so I think is normal, the maximum temperature accepted in the rtx 2060 is 88c. and sorry for my English, I don't speak it.

Hello, I registered in the forum after looking up the same temperature issue I am having with my card.

I bought the same graphics card yesterday (RTX 2060 Gigabyte OC) and tested it a few times. I found out the card reaches really high temperatures as the oc posted here.

Although it's not an issue on games and performance (I can play everything on max without any hiccups), I find that reaching 80 degrees is a lot for a videocard.

Here are the results on a benchmark I did today. The results are great comparing it to the most expensive versions of the same graphics card.

Who does that without any other datasets???

Really...its normal after long sessions inside a case. The cards are set to run around that point. In fact l, users are able to raise it so there should be little worry at 80c.

Yes, I think after seeing benchmarks of other videocards running at 70c I got a little worried with mine reaching 80-82c

But the performance is great and what I expected of a 2060 (even my gigabyte benchmarks a little better than more expensive versions of the same card).

While playing games in ultra graphics it reaches 70c / 75c max temps

A little update: after testing a few games, configurations, benchmarks and software, I concluded that the 2060 reaches 80-84c just for a couple of seconds at full load, and the temps are between 70-75c 99% of the time, without lowering it's performance. Would love to have lower temps, but it is what it is, and as long as the video card works at it's fullest, i'm ok with it

Way these cards are made you may want to change thermalcompound and increase contact pressure of the hsf to the die just slightly...

That's about 2.5F above normal test conditions so, that points to hardware issue.

Probably better off returning it rather than risking warranty coverage.

This is how it should actually look because it means GPU Boost 3.0 is settling at a proper temperature/voltage point in your case. Its a quick learner, at that. And if it cannot keep temperatures below 84C in regular conditions (ambient of 18-30C) I would consider it reason to RMA, since the technology is designed not to exceed that temp, and if it does, a heavy performance hit (voltage drop) is the result. And thát means the card/product is not operating as it is marketed and as it should.

Bottom line: 84 C peak temp = fine. 85 C peak temp = reason to worry. 84-85C consistently = major issue. Its a fine line ;)

85c all day is not a problem ... unless its a amd card in witch case it will probably catch fire soon

You go ahead and run your Pascal or Turing at 85 C and watch what happens.

Correct, they lose ALL boost and revert to base clock or something close by. You wont lose 13mh bins but instead a few hundred mhz. And that is not the intended use of these cards.

Not sure what you are getting at otherwise, but this is one aubject Im pretty certain of.
