High idle temps gtx 780 ti

#1XxDANGMIESTAxXPosted 2/22/2014 1:46:28 PM
Picked up the card yesterday and noticed it has been idling rather high at 57c. Several reviews showed it idles at ~30c so I am not sure if my card is a dud or not. Would appreciate your feedback on this. btw I run 2 monitors 1 1080p 144 hz 24` and the other is 1050p 60hz 20 inch. both through dvi

How's the air flow in your case? What about general air temps in the room as well?

I'm not sure if it's the same for the 780, but my HD6970 doesn't clock down during idle time, due to running two monitors, which results in higher idle temperatures.

the room is ~20c. I keep my pc in a cabinet with the front door open. so the two sides and top are moderately obstructed, but front and back are free.When I put my hand into the cabinet next to my pc the air is cool.

The card isn't hitting idle clocks(should be ~300mhz on kepler?) because it can't downclock the memory between refreshes with a 60hz and 144hz display.

I see. Is there a remedy to this. I keep my pc idle for several hours a day just viewing pdf files on the desktop for school and don't want to wear out the card unnecessarily

Idle clock is 135MHz on the 770. How many monitors are you running?

I wouldn't worry about wearing the card out. However, you can use nVidia Inspector MDPS to force idle speeds unless a certain load is achieved/certain software is running.
