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.
Yes, technically the temperatures according to Nvidia, are ok.
BUT, it seems a lot of these cards are coming with inferior coolers which probably explains the lower cost.
Personally I wouldn't let anything run into the high 70s-80s range because heat simply degrades electronics, and especially memory.
Some may disagree, but I know for a fact that high temps like that drastically affect longevity.

The noise and vibration you are mentioning sounds like you may have a fan that is out of balance or defective.
Other than the temps and vibration, the card appears to perform fine.

The change in core clocks is the boost clock.
Look up above at my last GPUz post where the GPU core clock is at 2010mhz. That is not me doing that. It's the card. Also in Far Cry 5.
But temps stay in the 50s.
It's only supposed to go to 1860 per the specs, but apparently it goes much higher unless that's an error in GPUz?

I've been doing some research and came to a conclusion:

There's two types of cards from this Gigabyte 2060 OC version that went into the market:

. The "ok" ones, that reach temperatures between 65-70c while intense gaming (around 30% of the cards in the market)
. The "f*cked up" ones, that reach 82-85c while intense gaming (mine and several others we saw on this thread, around 70% of the cards in the market)

I'm starting to believe there must be a thermal compound issue or something like that. If you see the reviews on newegg about this same card, you have 4 out of 6 that have temperature issues, and 2 that don't.

From what I've seen, the triple fan units with a longer board seem to perform much better.
Of course, you can try replacing whatever thermal compound from the factory with no penalty.
It can only get better.

Can't hurt to try.

I went to Gigabyte Technical Services 2 times but they only tried BIOS and replaced thermal paste. They said that No issue with GPU. I will go to Consumer Rights.

I left mine on the place I bought it so they can test it and tell me if they find the same issues I had (which I hope they do cause I tested it on two different computers). Will see what they say to me after that, if they give me the same one, they "fix" it or they offer me a new one.

After Gigabyte replaced bios and thermal paste, did your temperatures change at all?

I am personally never buying gigabyte again.
I'm not a fan of gigabyte myself, but their triple fan cards have always been pretty good.
My Radeon 7950 on my i7 920 rig is still a great card. it was just ugly blue.

No i don't think so.... safe maybe but not normal.... i also got Gigabyte RTX 2060 Windforce OC yesterday and during this winter time when the ambient room temps are around 10c Celsius, my card easily reaches 80-82c .... moreover, the default fan profile is also very aggressive and fans spin at 80% upon reaching 75c and that is because Gigabyte has set it so due to using shitty heat sink on this card.... previously i had Zotac GTX 1070 Mini and it never even touched 75c in the same pc case and that too in summer time .... i think i sould change my card to Zotac Amp RTX 2060 ...

Well, you can save up by getting a GPU Bracket kit to adapt a CPU AIO Cooler to your current graphics card instead of buying another 2060 while selling your current one at a loss.

I talked to Gigabyte and they said those where not normal temperatures, that I should contact the seller

It reaches 85C again, nothing changed. I will go to Consumer Rights.

Did you change your GPU? Did Service accept your GPU?
I actually bought an Asus Advanced OC because it was really cheap on a local seller, and I am waiting for news about my Gigabye (which I will be selling after getting it back or getting another one). The Asus is working great, temps max 65 at full load. Even better OC

yep that was the card that made me never buy them again, the 7970 OC. Total unstable trash and RMA for it was a bad bad experience.

Really? Mine still works and has never given me a single problem. Yours was the triple fan model?

Yep, triple fan, though it was a used card, I presume the prior owner burned it out mining litecoin. I RMA'd it a few times for being unstable because it would crash about once an hour while gaming, on average, even if I underclocked it. The first RMA replacement was even less stable. RMA'd it again and that second RMA had obvious burn marks on it. RMA'd it a 3rd time and got one that looked decent so I sold it to a miner. Each RMA took a few weeks of not having a good graphics card and having to pay return shipping so it was pretty annoying. Maybe if I was the original owner it would have been a better experience. But they didn't make the RMA very enjoyable either.

Ive read about Gigabyte RTX 2060 cooler issues, so now they are brinking up in the stores a V2. Im preaty sure you have the V1 with the cooler issues on it, Just see this video as a example:

Looks like the fan its dropped to 0 instanly all the time

Yes, it's V1. But the fan won't drop to 0, it works at full load and the temps are terrible. Still waiting for the place I bought it to contact me

Yea just RMA it something wrong with that card, because I have also the RTX 2060 (its MSI Ventus OC) 2 fans also very similar to your video card, but I have in full load after hours playing between 55º-60ºC.

So i think it's normal temperature considering cheap cooling system. Actually in games temperatures around 80C but no more.

So the seller contacted me, they tested the card on 3 different systems and never got more than 75c on full load. They really wanted it to fail to give me another one, but they couldn't.

I will be selling it as I got an Asus 2060 OC that works great. I seem to have no luck with Gigabyte products.

But how many days ago you bought that video card ?
