High CPU and GPU Temps

Hi there, I got an Asus GTX 1070 Reference GPU around 5 weeks ago now, and in the past 2 weeks the GPU has started reaching temperatures of around 93 degrees under load and is ideling at around 40, and my CPU is reaching temperatures of up to 94 degrees under load and is ideling at 53 degrees?

I cleaned the fans in my PC out around 4 weeks ago last and have ensured everything is up to date and have checked to see if the CPU cooler is seated correctly and all is fine.

I am using the TX3 EVO on my CPU with 2 92mm fans.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

  1. Well it sounds like you have very little to no case airflow. That GPU should not hit 93c under load with 20c ambient room temp. Assuming the TX3 is mounted correctly your 4790 shouldn't get that hot at stock speeds either.

  2. I have checked the CPU cooler and the pins were correctly secured. I have a Corsair 300R with 4 case fans. 2 at the top as intake fans, and 1 at the rear and 1 at the front both as exhaust fans. I have recently cleaned out the filters as well as the fans themselves.

    I would take off the side panels of your case, put the computer under load and see if the temps get into the 90s again. If they do drop something about your case airflow is not right, I would verify your fans are actually spinning up to a decent rpm when the computer starts to heat up.
