My graphics card is a toasty boi - this is what HWMonitor reports when running a combination of Cinebench R23 and Furmark Obviously there are thermal throttling limits that'll kick in to protect the GPU silicon, but those hotspot and memory temps are looking a mite toasty for my liking. It makes no difference whether I have the case fans (3x120mm intake via a 360mm AIO rad, 3x120mm exhaust (2 top 1 rear)) running at full whack or not, it always settles around that sort of temperature - and yes, some games will push it that high, it's not just synthetic benchmarks. Buuuuut.... left to its own devices, the fans never really get much above ~60% even when the GPU temp is way up there: Obviously Afterburner, which produced that graph, can indeed adjust the fan speed curve. If I set it to the default curve that will indeed knock the temperatures down a bit It also reduces hotspot and RAM temps, but it's harder to show that difference on a graph. I can very likely get a lot better cooling if I tweak the fan curve it so that the fans actually hit 100% at full GPU utilisation. Those fans are noisy af at 100% speed, but if it takes ~5C off all those temps then I might consider it worthwhile. My question is whether or not this is a safe thing to do, or whether I'm going to kill those fans by running them at 100% for extended periods of time? I'd really like to replace the thermal compound on the card and look at getting some better thermal pads for the VRMs and memory chips, but I'm not really keen on the idea of voiding the warranty with the way the GPU market is right now.
