6990 running HOT

Recommended Posts

Hey, bought a 6990 off a guy locally, and gpu1 is running hot, by that i mean 74 degrees celcius at idle, CCC, afterburner and HWMonitor all report the same temp. GPU 2 is at 41 degrees idle. and by feeling the seperate ends of the card one is much hotter than the other.

 

there is 4 screens that run off gpu1, but 73 at idle is too high for a 6990.

 

Apparently the stock cooler hasnt been taken off before, so any ideas as to what the issue might be?

Sounds normal to me. Multiple monitors make them run much hotter at idle IIRC.

just ran 3dmark 11, hit 103 degrees on each card, and only got 6347 P graphics score. reviews got over 9k score, not sure whats happening here :-/

Wow, 103C is hot. Are you keeping it auto fan or custom fan speed ? Try it at max 100% fan speed and see the temps

that is it automaxing its own fan. it cannot get any faster (or louder lol)

Maybe the cooler on that one core is mounted improperly / needs a new application of paste?

 

That's just bizarre :\
