[SOLVED] Why is my GPU running high temps?

I recently installed a new MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Super. Previously with my Gigabyte 1050 Ti, the temps would hit around 55 C while running a full load. With my 1660 super, if I don't have the fans running more than half power, it'll sit around those temps while just browsing the web. Temps rise to the 70 C range when running a load. These readings are the same in both Afterburner and my HW monitor. Could this just be how it runs? I just don't want a new GPU to have a meltdown. Thanks in advance!

That is perfectly normal for both scenarios. First, the 1660 super outputs more heat than the 1050ti due to its considerably higher power draw. Second, the cooling setup on the 1660 super is completely different from the 1050 ti, therefore, they are not able to be compared to each other heat-wise. Finally, the 1660 super has a zero-rpm mode while idling or the temps are below 60C. The fans turn off to make the graphics card silent. Everything is fine for the new graphics card.

The 1660 super is able to reach 93C before issues occur according to nvidia's specs page.

Awesome! I'll keep that in mind then. Thanks again!
