Temperatures are much pretty much the same as on the Founders Edition. This is an improvement over the previous generation where many, especially cheaper cards, were always fighting with the thermal limit. For this generation, it looks like temperatures are not a problem.
Idle temperatures are low because the card lacks idle-fan-stop capability.
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||315 MHz||203 MHz||0.718 V|
|Multi-Monitor||1290 MHz||1750 MHz||0.718 V|
|Blu-ray Playback||300 MHz||203 MHz||0.718 V|
|3D Load||1815-1980 MHz||1750 MHz||0.918-1.050 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.
