i have a ASUS G20AJ-DE028S with a geforce gtx 970 4GB

when i play some heavy games (cod advanced warfare;watch dogs,..) at high settings my gpu temp is at 80c.
i have it since i bought this pc 2 months ago,but it never goes beyond 80

is this a safe temp for few years or should i use msi afterburner and make a custom fan setting? i am really woried about it since the first weeks and don't want to ruin it..

The gpu is limited to 80c. The temp is well within the safe temp range for the 970

Hey!

Which GTX 970 is acutually in your G20AJ? I'm looking for one, which fits into mine, so maybe you can tell me the name and the brand of your 970.

Kind regards

While that temp is listed as safe, I always use MSI Afterburner (free download) to monitor my GPU temps and adjust the fans to keep the temps closer to the mid 60's

Did your system come w/the 970?

If not, there may be a grill on the inside of the computer case cover, which is restricting the amount of air allowed for cooling the 970. The grill cover is held on w/one screw I believe, and needs to be removed.

I have also the Asus rog G20 with gtx 970 4 gb. Bought 2 day ago and in game mode my temps of gpu are reaching the 80 c with 50% of fan speed. Really strange. Do u think it's safe or maybe my gpu have some issue? I also saw some people who.said they have temp of gpu around 65 c with the same 970.
Any help?

I'd propose to anyone who has this G20 configuration (GTX 970), to post here the fan setup they found to keep the GPU the coolest possible.
Cheers.

It isn't that complicated, just alt-tab out of your game and increase the fan speed (i dont like leaving it on automatic, it seems to always greatly increase fan speeds) I up it to 65-75% fan speed.
I now have a 980ti and i rarely see temps in the 70s as long as I keep fan speed in the mid 60s to 70s.

I did same with Evga Precision,putted 85% fan speed during the game and temps are on 73 with gtx970. How it possible 970 run hotter then 980ti? Do u think I have some issue with video card?

Arkham Knight maxed out settings at 65% fan settings maintained temps in the high 50's! (several hours of play)
Rome 2 total war / Atilla the same
Battlefield 4 maxed out with 150% increase in resolution scale somehow requires ALOT more out of my 980ti (older game tech, not optimized id say) and then i need to crank fans up to 85 at some points.
Advanced Warfare mostly maxed i need 75% fan speed to keep temps under 70
Ive played plenty more, but i cant remember specifics (I need to run some heavy crysis 3 and check)

Nice temps with Batman!! I'm testing my card with Dragon Age Inquisition with detail at ULTRA SETTINGS. Yesterday I played for 2 hours and temps was 71-73 with fans at auto by Evga Precision in Aggressive mode (running at 90% of speed). What do u think? Can I damage the fans if running mostly time at 90-95%?
Thx.

Well... I've just bought it with the 970. And guys, I can tell you that I was not really expecting this kind of performance, more so when I've been using a Dell Precision M4800 with a Quadro K2000 for the last 2 years.
Mostly, I'm using it to play World Of Tanks and now I can see it in its full splendor! Full everything and I get GPU temps around 80C with fans fluctuating around 55% speed, FPS 45. I can't really see 80C a problem as the stated max temp is 98C.
And the funy thing is that the G20 wasn't hooked to the 24" 1080p Asus monitor I bought with it, it was hooked to my 55" 4K Samsung!! Yep, I think, and correct me if I'm wrong, the GPU was scalling up from 1080p to 4K. When it's connected to the Asus monitor, the temp drops to 75C and FPS goes up to 60+!

Awsome. (Although I'll not be using the 55" Samsung to play WOT, it scares me a lot when I'm at 2m from the screen :-))

1+ for ASUS.

How is your fan noise of gpu if u put the fan speed at 70%+? I can hear more gpu fan noise then all the fans of pc and the gpu fan seems to be more mechanical.

I got an Asus ROG G20AJ since yesterday. But the CPU fan noise when playing guild wars 2 is not normal. People in the next room complain. The noise is even when i set it on lowest settings. The CPU fan does about 3500 RPM during gw2 and it gives me a headache. Is this noise normal for this model?

When I play Gta V Cpu Fan and System Fan reach near 3800 rpm. Level noise is audible but not gives me headache.

Mine overs around 3500 RPM's too but isn't that loud to me. Maybe you have a bad noisy fan?
