I finally build my rig, but i'm now wondering if my gpu is running at a too high temperature. I also wonder how come it runs at this high temp.
I'm having the Corsair 500R Black Case, which got 2 fans in front, 1 giant fan on the side, and a fan at the top-back. The inside also leaves ample room for air movement, since most of the cables are behind the left side panel. My CPU got a new cooler (HyperMaster Evo 212, latest version) and runs at 36C/94F most of the time and when playing games it's at a max of 45C/F (which is fine i guess), My MOBO temps hardly ever go past 38C. So that's not much heat that can infect the GPU.
My gpu is a Zotac Nvidia GTX 670 2GB NOT
AMP! version - which came with what i think is a stock cooler.
Idle, the temperature is at 35°C, but when I play a game it goes up rather fast to 76..79..sometimes even 82C. Though, it seems to stabilize at that point and never goes beyond 81-82C.
The moment i pauze the game or minimize to desktop, the temp immediately drops down to 4xC in just a few seconds.
Now I'm wondering, is that an OK temperature?
Not the BEST cable management i could get, but i jammed my power cable into the MOBO first and only realized I could get that one behind the panel as well..only it was too tight in the mobo I was scared to break something while trying to get it back out so ..yeah.
p.s.: hopefully i didn't post this twice since my first topic didn't show up somehow - i'm not sure if i did something wrong, it lagged behind or was just a server fault
