So Gigabyte upgraded the heatsink, I guess they are doing a good thing for once?
I mean they are improving a product that is technically running in spec.
lol yeah, but I have a windforce rev 1,0 with same radiator and 100 mm fans, and its heating is same about 80. Actually never more 81C at full load.
I don't think it's real problem while there is no cards with same price and better coolong. But they are...:wtf:

i have the same issue .the problem on heat sink don't waste your time the only thing you have to do

set temp limit to 65 and curve fan to max 75% v sync on .... temp 74-78 with no noise .
Of course you will lose some of the performance (1800 mhz of 1950) But there is no solution to this problem now

I have noticed that some games do not have high temperature
Meh, I tried that and it's not worth at all. You can google a little bit and realize that other 20** cards can reach ±80C at easy on full load. If you want so, set 75C limit because it's fine. Or just lock fps around 70-80 if you have 60Hz monitor, can help too in some games.

You are free to buy what ever else, it doesn't mean the Gigabyte card is faulty though.
As you said, the Gigabyte product is not competitve, then buy other brands, that is how competition works.

any one buy rev 2 model ?

nvidia must have option to power off on rtx on chip to void the hot temp

If you have 1 intake fan and 1 exhaust fan, try installing some top exhaust fans as they can cool a hot box fast

Not so much an upgrade as it is a fix. Whoever designed that first one just took a simple vertical heatsink and multiplied it x surface area and thought 'should work fine'. This is the stuff you see on a CPU cooler base, the fans are straight blowing air onto a metal wall, there is no airflow there.

Also slower CPUs, that FFXV bench score is pretty damn horrible - 76xx points and 82xx points is very low. I score over 9k on a GTX 1080 that is only slightly faster... Less performance = less heat. These comparisons don't ever work because so many variables are different; ambient (room) temperature, but also the rest of the rig do play their part. For example, if you have a very hot CPU above the GPU, that will also increase temps

I think the topic is complete tbh, the cause of problems is clear (shit cooler) and anything else that is not optimal will only make the overall performance worse, this includes case airflow, ambient temp, and the rest of the components, hell even display res.

Well, I think I'm done with gigabyte and will try to RMA my card also because its fans starts to rattle. Shitty plastic, shitty radiator, shitty fans and no damn LED :shadedshu: and that all costs like the FE 2060. Scamobyte
I hope Asus or something else would be better

open case no fans mode ...
cap fps to 120 on riva tuner
set temp limit to 65 aorus engine
set fan curve to 65% max ..silent on aorus engine
max temp 80 c ...room temp 40c

FF15 BENCHMARK STOCK WITH R5 1600 NO OC = 8100
SILENT MODE = 7500

Nope, i tried 2 cases. I went 2 times to go PC Enthuasist. He thinks same with me.

In my experience this case is the reason for these little higher temps. You should run open case benchs and see what happens. Probably you will have better temps, something about 5C or even more. It's not rare to see something like 15C lower wih open case. I've seen this before.

A good fan on the front (assuming that is possible on this case) and two fans as exhaust will help to keep things better, but this case is not the proper case to put things that produce much heat like a hi-end videocard. So there's not too much to do without making huge modification on case, which is not worth. You should just buy a better case as fast as you can. Looks like it should be priority on the next update you're planing.

Gigabyte is not a great VGA manufactor, but Windforce cooler solution is one of the bests. There are no better fans, for example.

Hmm around 80% as I remember, and also five fans in a case.
(it is GV-N2060WF2OC-6GD)
But what fans and what case? There's a lot of fans on the market that are really terrible. I'm not saying that your case, but we need to ask.

Like I say, you will not find much better cooling solution than Windforce. It's a well made heatsink with one of the bests fans in the market. Try to put on 100% when you're playing to see what happens.

zalman z9 neo, not so good actually but ok

Those fans are bad, they rattle just out of a box and I found few threads with same issue. Maybe just a bad luck idk :(
And "windforce" not bad at x3 fan version. So, I don't say that 80C is a real problem, but ASUS Dual OC heats up to max 70C for almost the same price.

Except literally every other cooler on the market. Windforce was great back on the 900-series when it was top tier in Gigabytes product stack and base for G1 and Xtreme gaming.
Today though, it´s bottom tier and should be avoided.

You're guys could be right, because i was talking about my experience with GTX970, 380x, etc. I assumed that newer cards have small litography, higher clocks, but same heat to dissipate.

Which make me think. If a Windforce could dissipate 200W from my R9 380 easily (75C max), why it shouldn't able to dissipate less than this in the 2060 case?

It's makes no sense to me. hotter VRM and memory maybe? Need to me much hotter to makes sense.

Exactly, I also had a G1 Gaming 970 and loved it. But it went downhill from there sadly

I have edited my post since mine R9 380 is a 200W card, at least 10% more than 2060. So if the same heatsink+fan is capable to do the job on my card, it should done a even better job on 2060 (180W card). Doesnt it? I just wondering since hotter VRM and other stuffs could justify, but even that, it need to be much much much hotter.

Maybe there's better solution out there, but Windforce (even 2x fans) should do de job. It can keep mine 380 under 75C easily.

Hey all,
I have the rev2 version of the GeForce RTX™ 2060 OC (rev. 2.0), ended up here because i was googling why this card runs so hot, and read through pretty much all the thread, with the best airflow possible for my case right now I have 5 fans in there rn, I hit 77 on a burn test, 10mins in, this is with a decent case dust filters removed front cover removed, taking it out of the case doesn't do much either, the cooling on this card is sh*t so if you're looking for the rev2 look else where. Oh just to add my gpu clock was around 1900 while temp was in the high 60s was a little over crs. 77degreesC it was in the 1900s.
Good card tho, just runs hot.

Those temps are normal and 77C is 7C below throttle point, so you have headroom.

Give the Core +100 mhz and bench it, don't touch power target (100% is fine). I'm pretty confident it'll fly.

So you lose performance to lower the temperature so that you don't lose performance?
It makes no sense.
As long as the card is running within spec, at most the card doesn't boost as high and performs slightly worse.
By down clocking / limiting the card you are losing significant performance no matter what.

what is your fan speed at max temp?

Maybe give the MSI 2060 GAMING Z at look? As long as you've got the space for a three slot card. Also it's heavy so you might need to provide some extra support.
I can vouch for the heatsink keeping temperatures under control if you have some airflow through the case.
