Temperatures are great and fan noise is low. MSI made the right choices with their cooler and its fan settings.
Important: GPU temperature will vary depending on clock speed, voltage settings,
|GPU Temperature Comparison|
|MSI GTX 760 HAWK||33°C||74°C|
|MSI GTX 760 Gaming||29°C||69°C|
|NVIDIA GTX 760||36°C||82°C|
|Gigabyte GTX 760 OC||36°C||68°C|
|Palit GTX 760 JetStream||35°C||73°C|
|EVGA GTX 760 SC||33°C||72°C|
|ASUS GTX 760 DC II OC||29°C||68°C|
cooler design, and production variances. This table just serves to provide
a list of typical temperatures for similar cards 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 we measured. We performed the measurement on the pins of a coil or a capacitor near the GPU voltage regulator.
|GPU Voltage |
|Desktop||135 MHz||162 MHz||0.85 V|
|Multi-Monitor||135 MHz||162 MHz||0.85 V|
|Blu-ray Playback||135 MHz||162 MHz||0.85 V|
|3D Load||1110 - 1280 MHz||1502 MHz||1.050 - 1.200 V|
The card uses NVIDIA's dynamic overclocking mechanism which 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 a lot.
