Default Re: GTX 295 getting very hot

I had my 295 exhibiting this type of behaviour. Alls I did was get compressed air and blast them pesky dust buildups out and the temps went back to under 90 under load.

Lightbulb Re: GTX 295 getting very hot

Default thermal-grease must be getting old or just crap to begin with i replaced it with some MX3 a while ago , temps are much better stays under 90c while playing stalker pripyat.And off course good case ventilation is important also. To my surprise dismantling sandwiched 295 is not so hard actually .

Good idea. That just seems too hot. Mu Quads don't usually get over 75....and that is with fans set at 70-80%

Default Re: GTX 295 getting very hot

should of updated this.

i redid everything, my cabling, H50 push pull direction, paste applique on the cooler. I did put MX3 paste on the GTX295 too before all that

anyway everything seems a lot cooler.

GTX temps get maximum to 80-90 now on full load with STALKER COP and 70-80 with many other games like BF BC2 BETA and AVP 2010

Hey mate, I find STALKER COP pushes my temps as well (in DX10, 3 x 280), it's about the only game that does but I often see high 80's/low 90's when I've been playing for a while.

Glad you got it sorted

Stalker COP was causing my PC to shut down. I gave my 295 a good clean out and it fixed the problem. temps were going over 100.
