Do you get overheating issues with your GTX 280 ?
 
Lets help the community to identify how big is this issue & if its worth the concerns or not.

simply state if you have the issue or no. if yes , indicate which brand ?

EDIT : mods please fix the second option , should be : BFG

hello guys !

well i bought 5 days ago a leadtek gtx 280, received it last tuesday, immediately installed it, launched crysis very high dx10, and gpu went up to 105 degre and i had to stop the game, cause temp was going up & up again....

i have a very well ventilated case (stacker master 830) with 4 side 12cm fans, 2 intake fan (front) 1 behind blowing hot air outside.

i have an enermax dxx 1000 watts, with 8 pin pci-e connectors, and 6 pins, i tried to everything with those plugs to see if psu was the issue but it wasnt, i have even tried with my tagan 900 watts with adaptateur 6 to 8 pin and same issue.

im very frustrated and angry agains nvidia for releasing such buggy gpus.

so i called the technical service of the shop where i bought the card and sent it back yesterday, and i asked for a refund, i will wait the next revision of the gtx280 (55nm) before i think about buying a nvidia card again.

Welcome to the forum, bud :). Did you try increasing the fan speed? I assume there is a fault with some of the cards because it seems people's cards are either running nice and cool or massively overheating. Luckily mine run cool; 40*C idle and up to 65*C ish after a good sesh on Crysis with clocks in sig.

EDIT: Is this thread just for GTX280's?

Well at least it's not BFG and eVGA only. They're supposed to be the cream of the crop, if they were the only ones with duds, I'd be very worried...

hi and thanks ;)

yes i was using the fan at 100% speed, at idle my card was at 45 celsius, so that was good, but once i launched crysis and played for 5 min temp raised to 105, same with call of juarez dx10, as soon as i stopped those games, temps dropped immediately to 70, i mean just 1 second later not more, then went back to 45 few secs after.

i first thought that was a faulty temp sensor and that my card could not that hot so while gaming i touched the card and it almost burned my finger !

Yep in these cases where you replace the overheated one , you still have to mention the issue. people need to be aware of that even if it was fixed with the replacement.

No overheating problems here, my BFG GTX 280 OC never gets above 85-87C.

What fan speed are you using to get 40C at idle?
