    Default Over heating GPU?

    Just recently I got a GeForce 770 4gb (THIS one in particular)

    With nothing running it hovers at 175-180F (79-82C)

    Is that too high? And if so what should I do to fix it?

    That is way too high. My GPU hovers at about 35C idle, and it has a reference design fan. That Gigabyte cooler should be giving you much better performance. What are you using to get the temps?

    If your case is small that might be a contributing factor. You could get a larger case, get a better front fan so that more air is pulled in, or clean out any dust from your case and anything restricting airflow (like cables).

    The cooler may also not be seated correctly.

    Its higher than what id allow mine to be at. I inagine its a fault with the machine, check benchmarks and reviews to see if its normal.

    But looking at the fans on the 770 it should be running much cooler. Could be a bad case for air circulation or a fault with product

    The case/motherboard combo are poo poo


    The fans face the bottom of the case and get next to 0 air circulation

    Even with that current configuration, you wouldn't have temps that high. You should send the card back because those temps are quite high. However, your software could be interpreting the temperature sensors data wrong. I've had that happen before, and it's weird. Have you felt the processor on your card with your finger to see if it really is that hot?

    If it is then you'd want to consider sending it back and get a different one or a replacement. If you can't get a replacement then you can take off the cooler and use some as-5 thermal compound.

    If it's not then I'd still send it back because who else knows what's faulty on it.

    I could feel how how it was through the case and my exhaust fan was blowing out suoer hot air

    When I opened it I could barely touch it without getting burned


    Im using speedfan to get my temps

    Speedfan doesn't always give you correct temps sometimes. I've had it display -99C on a card before, and a ich temp of 345C. (crazy shit)

    Check the temps in the catalyst control center.

    Another thing could be is that your card's bios is faulty and it could be clocked too high, but that's a far-fetched idea that just slammed itself in my head..

    Yeah, just see if you can send it back for a replacement. If not, then just apply some of your own thermal compound.
