    gtx 970 overheating while gaming?

    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.
