So I've acquired a Titan X Pascal, I actually chose this over getting a RTX 2080 Ti, it was cheaper and more stable from what I've researched. I replaced 2 1070s because i no longer wanted to do the SLI thing, the fact so many new games not supporting it was annoying me. I'm very happy with this solution, as the performance is just as good as my SLI setup, plus more vram. Now to my question... boy this is one hot puppy. I like to keep my components cool, I like speed and power but i also like my investments to last, id rather replace a fan because it wore out than burn out a $1000 GPU, just sayin. I was used to seeing numbers in the 62c to 66c range, maybe 68c tops with my SLI setup, this badboy though jumps to 74c, 75c, in 3dmark even saw 77c with 120% power going on. Is this safe? and by safe I mean i'm a big gamer so is my card safe running at these temps, or at 70c to 75c when i'm gaming? will my card last the 3 to 5 years that I want it to? The person I got it from used it for 11 months, very conservative, he didn't let it get above 72c to 75c himself so I know its in fine condition. I've been reading about alot of people getting water coolers, I really don't want to alter the card in any way if i can help it, if its running around 10 degrees hotter than my SLI then i'm cool with it, just would like some advice on this. Thank you.
