GFX 295 Temps

HI Guys

My friends GFX 295 is idling at 70 - 72 degrees, and I have just played 2 minutes of COD MW2 and it went over 90 degree, was only playing for about 2 minutes, is this card overheating????? or is this normal.

The system in a I7 920, not overclocked at the moment, in a TJ-07 Case, with a H50 Corsair CPU Cooler



Thanks Guys

Hay

Welcome to the world of buying a case with NAFF all airflow. The card is still hot aswell though. Are the fans on auto or manual?

Hmm something wrong there Haley my 280OCX folding only gets up to 77degrees full load

just check temps using gpu-z see which sensors it's picking up.

I'm guessing the fan must be running full tilt, you must be able to hear it!

The temperatures aren't terrible, they're ok upto about 110 degrees. I wouldnt like it to be that hot though and would certainly look at getting some better cooling in there.

top fans should not be intakes... heat rises, there for the worst possible thing to do is make them intake air... that's the first mistake

OK I have decided to turn the fans around in her case, make the top fans exhaust (one will have the H50 Rad attached Exhausting from the case) and the rear fans Intake - will that help

Also I have 2 Noctua NF-P12 fans hanging around, am thinking about changing to Corsair fan on the H50 to have push/pull Noctua, what do you guys think?????

Answer to TTL I think they are on auto, as when I was playing COD MW2 the fan was really noisy so i'm guessing that auto, any other advice woud be gratefully received thanks, need to get these temps down

Yeah I'd install those P12's. Would help keeping CPU temps low.

And yeah it would make sense if making the top fans exhaust and the rear fans take in air would help GPU temps.

The H5O works best with the rad fan being used as an intake as its bringing cooler air in to cool it rather than warm air thats been heated up in the case. Personally I'd stick the rad fan at the back of the case making that an intake and have your roof fans as exhausts cause, as otis1337 says, heat rises.
