Idle temperatures are a bit higher than on the FE, which is as expected because that card doesn't have the fan-stop feature. These temperatures are low enough not to be worrisome.
In gaming, temperatures are 6°C better than with the NVIDIA Founders Edition, and the card is significantly quieter as well.
Important: GPU temperature will vary depending on clock speed, voltage settings,

cooler design, and production variances. This table just serves to provide a list of
typical temperatures for similar cards as determined during TPU review.
Clock ProfilesModern graphics cards have several clock profiles that are selected to balance power draw and performance requirements.
The following table lists the clock settings for important performance scenarios and the GPU voltage that is used in those states.
|Desktop||300 MHz||203 MHz||0.706 V|
|Multi-Monitor||1140 MHz||1750 MHz||0.706 V|
|Blu-ray Playback||300 MHz||203 MHz||0.706 V|
|3D Load||1590-1995 MHz||1750 MHz||0.756-1.068 V|
The card uses NVIDIA's dynamic overclocking mechanism, GPU Boost 4.0. It will dynamically adjust clock and voltage based on render load, temperature, and other factors.
For the graph below, we recorded all GPU clock and GPU voltage combinations of our 1920x1080 resolution benchmarking suite. The plotted points are transparent, which allows them to add up to indicate more often used values. A light color means the clock/voltage combination is rarely used and a dark color means it's active more often.
