Question Kfa2 gtx 980 memory overheating


Feb 8, 2014
Good day.

Got an kfa2 gtx 980. Has a poor memeory vram heatsink. Wont sit perfectly and so thin aluminum that wont work wel.

Temps for the gpu stays at 55 to 60 C under full load yet

Every time i play bf1 at stock speeds. I get every few minutes dgxi device removed error. I restarts the game and again and again.

Last night i used msi after burner and tried -250 on memory and played 3 hours no crash. Let the uningine at highest settings whole night no crash.

If i do the menory slider again on stock i get crashes.. and memory chips and its heatsink are too hot to touch. Fans are at 100%.

Now does it the temps which makes it crash or something else...?

Core at stock and memory at -250 is the card stable and gives no problem. Memory at stock gives that dxgi device phisically removed. Nvidia driver crahsed at least 2gb memory etc error.

Any advise..?


Now does it the memory
