I bought a used 3060Ti and installed in an old PC I have --- will be upgrading it in near future....currently an AMD 2400G w/32GB RAM. When running COD MW2 temperatures will hit mid-80s and "hot-spot" will hit 99 degrees. If I try T-Rex miner with all defaults, it too will hit these insane temperatures... I have setup Afterburner to max at 80 degrees so as to stay safe. I have cleaned and replaced GPU thermal paste with no change. I bought a copper cooling plate as "something to try" next....

Any suggestions? Did I buy a "used-up" card?

VENTUS: I replaced an 3070 2X with an 3070TI 3X just because the 2X was too noisy (and maybe hot too). I think that the design with only two fans is not able to cool down the Ampere chip family.

Just follow-up to my story. I have cleaned and replaced the thermal paste and pads and the card still wants to run at 90*+. I have to run MSI Afterburner and tell it to use temperature limit (I set to 83).

I'm surprised...if it's a design issue I wonder why more people don't complain.
