Its not okay. ITS TOO HOT.Hi guys,
My RTX 2070s is water-cooled with an EKWB. Under heavy load, the temps for the core and memory runs around 80 degrees Celsius, but the hot spot goes all the way up to 106.
Is this an issue if so, how can I solve this?
Thanks for the reply.Its not okay. ITS TOO HOT.
Anything above 89 Degree is too hot.
Are you sure you checked it correct? The system shuts itself down at that high of a temperature. Are you experiencing thermal throttling? (Low performance on high temps.)
Any stuttering, shutting down, freezing problem?
You should check it with another software.
I'd recommend using the software known as "Speedfan".Thanks for the reply.
I have not had any shutdowns due to this. No thermal throttling, all my games run fine: Apex legends, smite, etc..
I used HWMonitor to check the temps, have you got a recommendation for another temperature checking software?
I'd recommend using the software known as "Speedfan".
Hmmm, I see. Hwmonitor doesn't specify what the hot spot is. This hadn't been much of a problem until a few months ago when I updated Hwmonitor (the new update had the hotspot readings and memory reading). Since noticing the issue, I re-did my loop and cleaned all my waterblocks.A water cooled Rtx 2070 should be nowhere near 80c on any part of the card, or do you mean the Memory Junction Temp? the limit there is 105c but even so a WC card you have an issue.
Did you buy the card with a WC block attached or self mounted?
If bought return if under warranty for repair/exchange
If mounted yourself, check the cooling block is seated properly on the GPU die, thermal paste is covering the WHOLE die surface. That the Thermal pads on the Memory chips and VRM's are the CORRECT thickness and making the proper contact to the cooler. To thin and there is no contact, to thick and the backplate will warp slightly causing a lack of pressure/contact on the GPU die itself.
Is it on a custom loop with the CPU or a stand alone GPU WC, or an AIO block?
What size is the Radiator being used ? 120mm, 240, 360? And where is it mounted in your case.
What case are you using?
Do the fans pull air into the Rad or pull air away from it?
With some more info we can help
Thank you for the suggestion. I have already tried that and that didn't seme to fix the issue.The hot spot is, as the name suggests, the hottest part on the GPU.
106 is definitely too hot.
Disassembling your card and re-applying the thermal solution fixed my hotspot issue on my old 1080ti.
Alternatively, adjust your fan curve with Afterburner, or underclock your GPU.
.I'd recommend using the software known as "Speedfan".
That is a very good suggestion. I shall try this and let you know how it goes.The GPU Hotspot on my WC 6800xt hit around 85c, totally normal. Even if you replaced the old thermal pads to where they were, they always get some damage to their structure and the efficiency of heat transfer is weaker due to little air pockets from where they tear. I would replace the thermal pads as you have opened it for maintenance. It only takes one pad not to be 100% to give you an abnormally high Memory Junction temp.
Have you noticed any drop in Clock or core speed while gaming? But a rad on the floor is never a great idea as air likes to travel up but I see the case is limited to what you can do.
