Hello everyone. I wanna ask why my gpu always get high temp around 80 degrees while full load? I already try take off the side panel but the temp always the same. Is the problem the thermal paste already dry? Or the airflow in my case?

That isn'r that far off from TPUs reviews temperatures. My guess is that you running in a warmer room than reviewers.

Yeah i play with my pc in a room without AC. Just 1 electric fan. And i live in tropical country that the ambient temp pretty hot.
But i already try fixing the airflow and put 2 14cm front intake, 1 14cm top exhaust, and 1 12cm rear exhaust. But the temp still the same.
Maybe add 1 more intake on the bottom good? What do you think?

what speed is the bottom 140mm running at? Does the bottom of your case have a ventilated area? And V12dock is current, 80c is far from a bad temp.

If your ambient temperature is hot, adding more fans won't really help. That's why some review sites operate with "delta T" temperatures (temperature rise over ambient) rather than absolute temperatures, because the same thermal load on the same cooler will result in roughly the same increase in temperature over ambient regardless what your ambient is. So if your ambient is, say, 33 degrees and reviewers test at 21 and get 68 degrees, that same load would then result in about 80 degrees for you (unless the card throttles or other variables change).

Additional airflow will help some, but if your case is already stuffed full of fans the effect of one or two more will be negligible. You'll likely just be creating turbulence and actually hurting airflow by having fans blowing in different directions.

A better solution is to remove the shroud and fans from your card and mount a couple of good 120mm fans to the heatsink instead. That will give you more airflow across the fins which will increase the cooling capabilites of the heatsink. Still, the effect is unlikely to be huge. Making up for high ambient temperatures is difficult.

I have not installed the bottom fan yet. Yes the bottom of my case have some holes for mounting 120mm fan. My 14cm front intake running at 1200 rpm (i check it on bios and hwmonitor)

Ah ok. Yeah my ambient temp average between 29-31 degrees almost everyday.

Yeah before i post this thread, i already try to mount 1 120mm fan in the bottom of the case (right under the gpu) and it helps the temp go down about 1-2 degrees. But i take the fan out and afraid of the turbulence that you said. You think i must put the fan again in bottom?

Ah ok i will try that but maybe later because my card still have warranty. If i change the fan and remove the shroud that will void the warranty right?

The bottom fan is counter productive if it has no access to outside air. It will just fight the front fans from pushing outside air towards the GPU. Also try playing around with the speed of the bottom front fan. Most cases use ventilated pci slot covers which allows the gpu fan closest to the back of the case to pull in outside air to help cool itself. Therefore a high speed front fan can be counter productive in some cases if airflow is preventing the back gpu fan from doing its job.

If ambient air is 30C (86 F) or so, case fans won't change anything

My Bottom fan intake air is room temperature, Coolant temp into the bottom 280 rad is 28.4C and coolant temp out is 27.7C ... that's not warm enough to kick the fans on

Modern graphics cards keep boosting clocks until thermal or power limits are reached.

You can use MSI Afterburner to setup a custom fan curve and adjust the limits.
Exactly, it is just doing what it is designed to.

Ok i understand now thanks for the very clear explanation bro. I think for now i'll stick with my current fan setup then

Ok thanks for the info bro
