    I can speak from experience that the 970/980 have a very small heatsink for the VRMs, and that's what leads to the temperature issues. Having a backplate doesn't really impact VRM temperatures as...

    I run Valley at Ultra instead of Extreme and 4xMSAA instead of 8xMSAA - I get slightly better scores as a result. If you take away the difference in options, yes, I likely got a very similar result....

    We're not worrying about idle temps - at least I'm not.

    Also, I watched the video, 0v3rl0rd, I get that when using auto and after a few hours of playing, but it's slightly different so I don't...

    What?

    Also, I watched the video 0v3rl0rd, I get that when using auto and after a few hours of playing, but it's slightly different so I don't know if it's from the GPU or something else in my...

    I haven't seen the video yet, I will when I get a chance.

    In terms of those temps, that's not good - seems you have a defect in the GPU cooling as well as the VRM.



    Regarding the mosfets, an...

    We seem to be having the same issue.

    When I use furmark for a 5 minute test, my VRM reaches 102c, while my GPU stays at 66c.

    Apparently - according to an Asus Tech - the safe upper limit of the...

    Bump to prolong the life of this thread until I get a definitive maximum VRM temp number from ASUS. (So far, all I've gotten is: "I'd like to confirmt hat the temperature which you are experiencing...

    I stated that in my case it was a Strix 970.

    I know about the 3.5GB issue, but because I play games at 1080p, I have yet to run into any problems, and I doubt I will until it's time for me to...

    Judging by how close I am getting to the "max allowable temp" of 105c, when the "VRM temperature reading is taken about 1 inch away from the VRM drivers," and the ambient temperatures are still very...

    My case is the Enthoo EVOLV mATX case - it's rather closed off, but there's plenty of space for the intake and venting fans do draw in or push out air - not to mention the CPU is water cooled, so the...

    Making my PC sound like a jet engine just to cool a single part of a single component should not be necessary, especially when one of the reasons I got the Strix was BECAUSE of the 0db fan tech. (Yes...

    Ran through the Valley benchmark repeatedly after a cold boot.

    VRM temperature stabilized at 98-99c after 1 hour of the Valley benchmark. The Average temperature was 92c, which is likely because...

    Thing is, that average is taking into account the idle temperatures from a good hour or so prior to the benchmarks. (Around 30 - 40c)

    When actually playing the game/benchmarking, the VRM is...

    So 105C is the end of the safe zone for 970 and 980 cards?

    My Strix 970 hits 98C under regular gaming use and 100C after running the Valley Benchmark for 45 minutes.

    All the other temperatures...

    Hopefully this gets more help on the issue - I have the same issue. My 970 maxes out at 71 degrees, but the VRM on the card reaches 100 degrees.

    Using the Manual option (40%) only cools the VRM to...
  18. Fixed-High ASUS Strix 970 OC VRM Temperature (100 MAX, 72 AVG) Should I be worried?

    Hello,

    This is my first time owning a dedicated gaming desktop rather than an all-purpose laptop. It was built by NCIX and "checked" by them before I received it.

    System Specs:

    I still stop by now and again, and I'll try my best to keep it updated.

    If it ever becomes a pain for me, or a fix doesn't look immenent, I'll leave it for you or someone else at that point.

    I'm not even part of this thread anymore and I agree.

    You know things are bad when the speakers on my ASUS Transformer Flip LP300 are better than what I had on the G751. (A $599 2-in-1 13.3" Laptop beats a $1499 17" gaming powerhouse.)

    Sorry, I cant actively help test anything since I've sent my G751 back. (And bought an Nvidia Greenbox GTX + Asus Transformer Flip in its place for just a little bit more.)

    I hope those of you...
