ASUS GTX 560 TI - Temperature Question



Greetings all -

Recently rebuily my PC with some new components, and I bought a Asus GTX560 Ti DirectCU II TOP video card.

My question is this, when I run FurMark burn-in until the temps saturate on my PC, the temp of my GPU is about 81 C.

Why is this so much higher than the review written here on this site?,2858-20.html

It shows 49 C for this card when running Furmark, why is mine so much higher? Note my card runs about 26 at idle.

If any are curious, here's a link for the specs of my system:

81 C is not enough to damage the card, but curious why mine is 30+ degrees hotter than this review. My chassis is Corsair Carbide 400R, and I have 3 inlet fans and 2 exhaust fans (plenty of airflow).

Thanks for your time,

If you still haven't tried, and your fan is still at auto, just try to raise your fan speed a bit higher or create a good fan profile using MSI Afterburner and check again.
good lord I have the same model as you, I have it highly oc'ed and temps never go above 70c, you must have a weak fan profile is what im thinking, also you probably have bad case airflow, with these two factors at work I can see you temps getting like that
I ran OCCT's GPU test on the Asus TOP Cu overclocked to 1000Mhz and I see 81C w/ one card and 82C in SLI on Son No. 3's on stock speeds. Antec DF-85 w/ CP-850, 2600k OC's to 4.8 Ghz.

I still intend to go back one day and retest as in my experience, the temps improve over the 1st month or so.
