So I'm sure somewhere buried in these forums there is a similar post , but I'm going to jest be a rebel. When I game for long periods of time my card is topping out at 82C, does this seem right? I heard these cards run hotter but dang my old 5850 topped out at 60c. 

 

Lemme know, Thanks!

The target temperature is 82 C to keep them more quiet. All is fine with your card. :)

82 decrees is nothing to sneeze at.

 

The ati 4850 i had in the past was blowing out 110 decrees and worked fine for a long time.

Although that would be pretty high for my standards for any kind of card.

 

If higher than 95 decrees, i would be worried.

What are your guys' thoughts on using some 3rd party app like Afterburner or EVGA to regulate the temps a bit better by ramping up the fan speed?

I'd say, get NVIDIA Inspector.

Best thing for NVIDIA cards imo.

 

You can:

 

Overclock

Set fan speeds

Make custom profiles for games, with AA options that actually work in games that don't have it.

 

It is basically a glorified version of gpu-z and the control panel in one, with more options to boot.

You don't need to regulate the temps any better. 82 C won't hurt a thing even 24/7.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, if it's any throttlin', it ain't hotter than it should be!

The heat is the same regardless of what fan speed you set.

Is it a reference GTX 770? If so, then 82C is pretty typical. You can always help it out more by placing a 80mm or even 120mm fan below it pushing more air than the graphic's card can do with it's own fan. Also, replacing the stock TIM with a good TIM can help a decent amount, too. It's just a hassle on higher-end graphics cards due to the possibility of ripping the thermal pads on it when taking off the heatsink.

I argue that it'd put out MORE heat if the fan was ran higher since the motor is running at a higher speed and therefore using more power and giving off more heat, however slightly :teehee:
