Help With Cooling Phanteks P400S Case

Hello All,
I was looking to get some help with my Phanteks P400S case. I recently installed a EVGA 1080 FTW GPU, and it is running at 81 degrees under load along with the CPU at 45 degrees. I was wondering if I needed to move some things around in order to get the temp down or if that was normal for these types of cards. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you very much.

  1. Sorry, forgot to mention I have the stock fan on the back of the case, and the two radiator fans are also on the left side of the radiator inside the case. Hope that helps. Thank you.

    the i7 7700k has some bad TIM, unless you delid it the temps will drastically go down, other than that, I also have Phantek p400S I have the rear stock fan as an exhaust blowing out the hot air, 1 stock fan mounted on the top also exhausting hot air out ( heat rises), and a 240mm corsair h100i front mounted blowing cold air in ( inhaling), my temps are okay. My GTX 980 temps are a tad higher in this case than my prevous NZXT full tower case, but I assume that's because of more and bigger fans, as well as space. Try having your radiator push cold air in ( if front mounted) or exhaust hot air off the top if its a single rad, or try a push pull.

    Also after typing all this out I noticed this was from June 4th, have you fixed your problem yet?

  3. Thank you for replying to my post. I have been running it with the cover off, and working with EVGA direct. They instructed me that the card should not be running that hot, because it was still under the 30 days i was able to return it since they said they where going to RMA it anyways. I got the EVGA 1080TI Black Edition, and actually just finished installing it. I have put it under load, and it has maintained a constant 71 degrees Celsius. So, I am guess it was actually the GPU this whole time. I have also put the cover back on, and no issues. I will keep this open for a few days, but if it doesn't change I know that was actually the problem, thankfully I had a lot hair to pull out, so now I don't have to get a haircut hahahahaha.
