Just installed my new PSU (Seasonic PX850), seated the new GPU, updated nvidia drivers, updated EVGA Precision X1, loaded Warzone (1080p) and my temps climbed from 62 to 88 and I shut it off.

Can someone help me out! I'm freaking out, I have never seen any of my components hit above 80 ever!

Not sure where to look, I knew these cards run hot but I was not expecting this within 1min of a game...

What case and fan(s) are you using?
I have a Gigabyte 3080 oc and it is currently idling at 32c and 22c in my room.
It hits 64-70c gaming at the highest.
3 cooling fans on 3080s.

You can switch the VBios switch on the card itself to OC and after a reboot it might hep some with fans coming on sooner.

Meshify S2 with 2x140 Noctua NFA14 PWM intake. 1x150 NFA15 PWM exhaust.

I have it fixed for now but it seems in Precision X1 the fans are not even coming on AT ALL. I have the fan speeds locked at 40% for now around 1400rpm and my temps are 56-58 in game. Not sure how the fans arent automatically kicking on! When I go to the Fan Curve control, its at default (Custom). I hadnt touched a thing earlier and just did a quick drop in Warzone and it would jump 1 degree every 2 seconds until I saw it hit 88 and closed game and cranked the fans manually.

I dont think the fans on that GPU turn on till 60C in the stock Vbios dip setting.
Glad you found a workaround.
I had a similar situation with my PowerColor 6800 and the Adrenaline SW said I cant adjust fan curve without voiding warranty. I use MSI afterburner and it runs cool after that
