Hello guys, i just recently got myself an srp GPU which is the Gigabyte RTX 2060. So far i'm liking it's performance and a super huge upgrade to my GTX 560 (lol). My only problem is it really runs hot. Like 83-85 degrees on Fortnite max settings. Fans are already 100% via MSI afterburner. Any ways to reduce it's temp?

What's your case, and how many fans? Did you run it with the side panel open? It might be an airflow issue. Also, ambient room temperature?

I still havent tried with side panels off. I got 6 case fans. 3 intake & 3 exhaust. My case is the rakk haliya matx which has good airflow. Not really sure about my ambient room temps but its summer time here in PH so its really hot. But in contrast to my bros rig he has RX 570 running on 50-60c on full load.

UPDATE: I managed to fix the overheating issue by simply undervolting the card. No performance lost and only runs at 60-70c on full load max settings on all of my games played. So if anyone is also experiencing the same as me, try undervolting.

Good morning, glad to see the issue got solved so easily. Undervolting is indeed a great way to reduce heat issues and, as a side effect, power draw, making the card run more efficient. I did it, too, with my rig. Have fun gaming, then!
