So i did some more testing. normal temps are between 85-87C (ingame) take the side panel of and it goes to 82-85C and with the fan like this it stay at 82-83C. But when i alt tab back now it's 81-82C and doesn't break 83C when i let it rest for a min. It also managed to keep a 1800mhz boost. But taking the fan away now it keeps the same temps and clock. Putting the side panel on makes it jump to 87C (did take a while) at times and fan boost.. clock jumped between 1600 and 1700mhz.If that doesn't work, then I suppose the paste has dried up unusually quick or something...
Yea the problem is if i unlock the fps and let it run and what it can handle it will run at 87-88C (75 fps) 100% of the time.. and right now at 45 fps lock it runs 85-86C the entire time basically. that does seem damaging does it not? i wish i could just stop it from booster problem solved.. guess i gotta take it apart or under volt it to make it even last..I can't speak for the others, but it still sounds to me like you don't have enough air moving - at least once the gpu gets to rolling, since it's by far the highest power consuming device in the PC.
The side panel at least has a grille in it, so the gpu has access to SOME air from that way; with today's trendy tempered glass side panels, that's a plus in my eyes.
Some games have funky reactions with alt-tab.
2080Ti has a default thermal limit of 84C. That's why the 1600 - 1700mhz. And no, the gpu's not going to shut the PC off on you unless it sits at such temperatures for an extended period of time.
Yea don't see any sag or heatsink sag at all.At this point i would say its a card issue not a case issue. By taking the side off you only dropped temps by 2c then with a fan blowing at it only dropped it another 2c. It might be hard but get down on the floor and look at your card and see if the heatsink is sagging away from the card at all. Next thing would be to take it apart and re past it to see if it brings the temps down.
I still have some artic mx-4 that i used on my cpu.Go ahead and repaste it just so we can rule it out.
Careful with your picks though, as some pastes that work well on cpus do not work as well on gpus.
I personally use NT-H2 on my gpu, there's also Kingpin KPx, Prolimatech PK3(might be hard to find), and Cooler Master Mastergel Maker Nano.
