Temperatures are great and fan noise is low. MSI made the right choices with their cooler and its fan settings.
|GPU Temperature Comparison|
|MSI GTX 780 GAMING||30°C||73°C|
|ASUS GTX 780 DC II||35°C||67°C|
|EVGA GTX 780 SC||34°C||74°C|
|Gigabyte GTX 780||37°C||72°C|
|NVIDIA GTX 780||37°C||81°C|
|NVIDIA GTX Titan||30°C||81°C|
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 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 we measured. We performed the measurement on the pins of a coil or a capacitor near the GPU voltage regulator.
|GPU Voltage |
|Desktop||324 MHz||162 MHz||0.88 V|
|Multi-Monitor||135 MHz||162 MHz||0.86 V|
|Blu-ray Playback||324 MHz||162 MHz||0.86 V|
|3D Load||875 - 1045 MHz||1502 MHz||1.025 - 1.150 V|
The card uses NVIDIA's dynamic overclocking mechanism that 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.
