Hi there! first sorry about my english (im argentinian LoL)... I ve recently received my order from amazon, an amazing MSI GTX 560 TI HAWK TWIN FRZR III (factory clock 950mhz mem 2100mhz shaders 1900mhz) but after some use, i began to worry about the noises and high speeds of the FANS, so ive checked the temperatures... The GPU IDLE 40/45º AND MEMORY TEMP IDLE 45º, thats fine... but after a minutes of benchmarking (uniengine) or playing SKYRIM full with mods, the GPU goes up OK, nothing out of the ordinary, it goes upto 70º no more...its OK, but the thing is with the MEMORIES, they went from 40/45 to 95/96º in a few seconds!!! AND THEY STAY THERE! I quit the game and the gpu drops down to 65/60 and slowly back to idle temp, but the mems stays in 95º!!! IS THIS NORMAL???
And something weird, if i quit the game and SHUT DOWN the system (not reboot) and quickly star it up again, like 1 min later, the mems are AT 50/55º ?!?!?!?!?
? I want to know if this is usually like this, or not! (maybe its a sensor reading problem??? :S)
My Gear is INTEL I5 2320 3GHZ / 8GB RAM GSKILL 2166 / SOURCE 520W / MOTHER GIGABYTE Z77 DSH3 / HDD 1TB WD 64MB BUFFER / WIN 7X64 ENTERPRISE (RECENTLY INSTALLED)
CARD : MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk (S) on GPU GF114
CONTROLLER : 301.42
vgaBIOS : 70.24.21.00.00
Well i hope that someone can help me! Ive read a LOT, and some people has this same problem, some of them RMAd it with no good results (same issue), i cant RMA it cause im back at my country (i bought it in my trip to USA a few weeks ago)...Some other guy change the TIM and got good results (but i think he had problems with GPU temp AND memories).
So if its not normal, what should i do? do i change the tim? try to check the airflow of the card (how)? im no hardware expert but i manage to try and do things... LoL.
Well i hope that u can understand my problem and help me!!! i want to enjoy my card without thinking that it will melt down in just 2 months away :(
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME GUYS! CYA!
