Hi,

Urgently built a PC in
AvP Hyperion EV33B Cube Mini Tower Case(trash for airflow but needed something i could work with temporarily) with a 120mm fan as intake in the front blowing over the GPU and NH-D9L on the processor exhausting out.

I took apart the GPU and cleaned it as well as applied artic MX4 thermal paste but the GPU idles at 48C-50C. are these temps high because its in that case (does not have much airflow)? If the case is not an issue, how do I bring the idle temps down?

Thanks!

Yes, But i've read that this card should idle at 34-37C. While playing NBA it reached 94C (hasn't throttled yet). But you are right in that I should add more fans, any other way to treat this issue apart from adding more fans?

Thanks (Y)

Measuring GPU temps with afterburner. Used to get 35-37C with room temps (in the UK so its a bit cold right now) room temp should be 20C (I think).

In summers 40 to 50 degree C is normal. If cabinet is spacious and has good airflow there may be decrease of about 2 to 3 degree C.
