Few considerations. This is a GTX1080 grade chip performance/power draw, it is normal to be a bit hot and there are different cooling solutions from board partners, some better and more expensive some not so good but cheaper. Except for defective items, all of these implementations ensure that the card is working properly, ALL are designed to keep the card in the thermal and power envelope required for proper functioning. Our card is kept at around 75 C in gaming, the actual clocks (boost) move between 1870 and 1920 regardless of the temp, it is how these cards work. I highly doubt that any non-defective card, even the most basic ones surpass 80 C under load.

unless its a amd card in witch case it will probably catch fire soon
So 85c on an Nvidia GPU all fine but on AMD it catches fire ? Why ? Because of the sticker ?

I just love these biased unfounded claims that have absolutely nothing to do with reality.

Sure hi temps are no worry ... as long as you don't mind performance being nerfed. Like everything else ... no matter what it is, if your Item is X + 10 and everybody elses is jut X, then ... "by definition" .... it is NOT normal.

Few considerations. This is a GTX1080 grade chip performance/power draw, it is normal to be a bit hot and there are different cooling solutions from board partners, some better and more expensive some not so good but cheaper. Except for defective items, all of these implementations ensure that the card is working properly, .
The numbers really don't support this.; with each generation, nVidia has made significant strides in power efficiency.... so while the performance may be comparable The different AIB Gigabyte 1080s hit only 70 - 71C under load with OC in TPUs test BTW, most drawing 222 - 245 watts in peak gaming... The tested AIB 2060s ranged from 68 - 72C under load and drew just 187 watts (Zotac), 205 watts (MSI), 207 (EVGA), 196 (Palit) ... that'san average of 199 watts. That puts the 1080s with 10 - 20% more power consumption. Another reason the 20xx series cards have shown that they are not at all limited by heat but by power due to the way the boost profile has been configured. In this power limited state, it's not normal to see high temps. Even the Tis are seeing only 62 - 74 depending upon how aggressive the clocks are and the tendency to set the fan curves leaning towards lower sound than lower temps.


I just love these biased unfounded claims that have absolutely nothing to do with reality.
In recenbt generations, AMD has had a higher temp limit than nVidia ...I remeber AMD doing a AMA and, when asked about the temps, the AMD big chese on the panel said 90 - 95, we are cool with that.... more recent;ly in TPUs testing: Vegs 64 was 85C, 390x was 83C

seriously cut it with the biased and unfounded Schick if you bothered todo your research before fanboying you would understand the comment

AMD Cards(particularly TSMC 28nm) historically do not tolerate being run hot
GCN 1.0 though 1.2 where known to suffer failures from high sustained operating temps resulting from either excessive vrm temps or more common core package failure which is why you see people baking them

AMD cards are the ones you usually see on the reflow bench while it does happen to nvidia cards particularly the older ones its no ware near the number of amd cards I have had to reflow/reball

and from my own experience if you keep them below 75c and run the fans aggressively and cool the backside of the core you don't have the issue

so do not lecture me on bias without fact checking

as for Polaris and up they have there own set of thermal issues most related to excessive current draw which is why you see the bigger GCN4 chips with MASSIVE vrms on them to handle the load for a chip thats allegedly a 150W TDP and I have had a couple of those on the reflow bench

You may do the same, Vega 64 literally ships with a 85c temperature target out of the box for reference models and you expect me to believe your generic statement that all AMD cards will catch on fire based on your limited experience with older cards ? And you think that's not biased at all ?

Got it, why do I bother.

they all ship with a 85c temp target inc the older ones

thats too hot

Do some consulting work for AMD, those morons shipped these cards like that.
I wouldn't bother, no one mentioned AMD apart from him which had nothing to do with the topic at hand, he obviously has a drum to beat (been beating it for quite a while now), don't get suckered in.

290x was the card where AMD raised the temperature limit. Otherwise it simply would have throttled too much. This was one generation.
Most GPUs from both vendors throughout other generations have ended up with 80-85C temperature target.

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.

For sake of comparison, here's the temp of my ASUS Strix.

holy crap... 40c less... i'm not that happy with my gigabye anymore
I found this card as an "open box" for 320 bucks. I figured if there was any real problem with it I could open an rma and get a new one.
Still trying to figure out what was wrong with it. I think the only "problem" was that the box was literally opened. That's it.
Card was still sealed in the anti-stat bag inside. It was a great score.

The triple fan coolers do an excellent job.

I think the problem with the gigabyte heatsink is that the air can't blow through down to the card.
But maybe it's something deeper than that.

Hello guys, I think I have the same issue with my gpu (rtx 2060 gigabyte oc). In full load it reach 78c in temp in games like The Witcher 3, Far cr 5, Middle earth SoM, an what is very a annoying is that my pc case have a very loud sound when the gpu reach 75c, but if I press the case with my hand, the sound is not anymore, also, I found that setting power consumption at 82% (max 71c), a sweet spot, in MSI afterburner, but losing 5-8 fps, the sound is gone. I just ordered a new PSU (seasonic gold 650w) and 2 fans to install in the top of my case. I read that the airflow may be a problem and the also the PSU, I have now 500w, a noname one (was 40$). Any suggestion ?! and sorry for my english.

Stop wasting money on other components to somehow make a shitty graphics card work better... It won't change much if anything. Your temps are fine and won't be changing much unless you handicap performance. The case noise may be resonance, but to replace a case, PSU and add fans just to get a GPU that doesn't kill your ears... meh. I'd try to return it or have it replaced instead.

well, I wound have asked first before buying parts... what do you need? A power supply wont matter... case fans wont matter... 78C is perfect fine on that GPU.

As far as case noise. Do something about it with the case so it stops vibrating.

78c is fine ?!, i see same gpus having under 70c on youtube and reviews, even 60c constant, mine is 75-80c, and my case is vibrating very hard just when gpu reach 74-75c and above, when is arround 71c my case is quiet, why i dont know.... maybe the psu is struggle in full load ?. tnx for answering me.

78C is fine. This is not a temperature that would harm GPU in any way.

You have this card, right?
https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N2060OC-6GD

The cooler on this particular model is not that good. This will result in a bit more noise and higher temperatures. There is very little impact to performance. The OP in the thread showed the card running at 1860MHz despite higher temperatures which is respectable enough. Even the Superposition results a few posts above show the Strix model getting only 2% better result despite 40C difference in temperature.

In your case, if pressing on the case will get rid of the sound this is clearly resonance. Vibration from GPU fans (or PSU fan) causing parts of the case to vibrate. The main goal should be finding out what parts are resonating. Side panels are the usual suspects when cheap cases are concerned. Does it still make the sound when panels are off? If you can find what parts in the case vibrate, simple solutions like a little electrical tape to avoid metal case parts making metal-to-metal contact can easily solve the noise problem.

Temperature-wise ensuring case has adequate airflow is pretty much the only reasonable thing you can do. What case do you have? How many fans to move air around?

Yeah, that's pretty hot man.

Here's about 45 minutes of far cry 5 having some hairy gun battles with tons of enemies.

Its hot, but at the same time, if you look at the core clocks, those are maintained. Its a straight line all the time under load - give or take a few 13mhz boost bins here and there. Whenever you see your core clock and core voltage drop significantly (like 50+ mhz in one step), that means it is throttling and while officially that is not covered by warranty, it is not the behaviour you want.

This looks to me like GPU Boost doing its job and succeeding. The card is fine. Not sure about summer though.

Upon closer inspection, I think you just have a bit of a leaky chip + a not so great cooler & ambient temp.
Look at the graph:

1550787321868.png


The peak gaming load puts your card right at the edge of throttling. At the same time, under this sustained temp, the last bit of load there shows a peak in power consumption with temps staying the same. GPU Boost is adding juice to maintain clocks, and it can do it within the 84C barrier. In other words; works as advertised.

Your perfCap reasons are also identical to the other example across the whole bench.

One other point: this graph

1550787507900.png


Is showing not the maximum/peak values, but averages. And with a 76.4 C average you can rest assured this card surpassed 80C.

Thank you all for your feedback. I spoke to my local Gigabyte representative and they told me those are not normal temps.
Tomorrow I'll be taking the card to the seller and they'll check if they have the same issues and then we'll see if they give me a new one or something.

As Vayra86 said, the card is working fine but those weird jumps could mean less years of true life of it. We'll see what Gigabyte has to say.

To the other owners of this same videocard with same temps: this is not normal, contact your sellers and try to get a new one.

Hello guys again. il upload some of my charts. first one is a superposition benchmark, the second is 25 min of The witcher 3 and the third one is 25 min of Far cry 5. resolution in games is 2560x1080 (ultrawide monitor, is so immersive), in TW3 i have 85 avg fps and for FR5 i have 95 avg fps. if u see in the TW3 gpu coreclok is 1815mhz, in the FC5 is 1920mhz, why ?!. im very happy with my cpu temp, arround 53c avg in all games. im not happy with my gpu temp, it go up to 77c in demanding games. when gpu reach 73c and above my pc case start to vibrate and resonate wich is very annoying the sound. any thoughts about my charts, if someone analise them and explain if there are ok... ty in advance for answering me.
