1080 ti Armor OC running hot.
« on: 29-March-17, 10:56:43 »

So, just sitting at the menu in a game, RE7, my gpu is at 80c @ 70% fan speed. Is this normal?

My idle is 41 c. What's the max temperature for this card?

I haven't touched any clock speeds.

HAve you tried other games or benchmarks and if so what temps are you seeing?

Hi

Would be nice to know full system spec, including chassis used and amount of fans: >>Posting Guide<<
Run a FurMark and see the temps then.
Safe temps are considered below 90C, with fans at 100% or lower. Although I believe the graphics card will throttle down when above 85C or so..

Thanks for the information. I was just a bit nervous because it's quiet different from my 970.

I ran the stress test and my max temperature was 80 at 70% fan speed and 60c for CPU. Kind of disappointed with the cpu temp as it's not overclocked.. Case fans were low speed.

Good new is that there's no crashes during the stress test, however, SC2 shuts down my computer every time I launch a game after the menu.

The card runs hot because for some reason the 100% fan speed only gets to 2360 RPM or so which is WAAYYYY lower than every other card. This has to be a bug

I just got off the phone with MSI and they said the 100% fan speed for this card should be over 4,000 RPM. They werent aware of any issue with it topping out at 2350 RPM like mine. I suggest if anyone where has a max fan RPM of 2350 or so call MSI and let them know. Number is below

1-626-271-1004 option 1.


Hopefully this is resolved with a firmware update in the future

So I just tested the fan at 100%. RPM is at 2400.

Time to return?

Hey guys, I'm gonna back up the claims here. My 1080 Ti Armor runs very hot, I am running into the 90C limit after ~10 minutes in Unigine Heaven. This is in a well ventilated H440 case that has never given me thermal issues. The fan is at 100%, which does indeed correspond to ~2400 RPM. I'll be honest, this is a pretty disappointing cooler for a $710 card. This is my first MSI card after using cards from Zotac, EVGA, and Gigabyte, and looking at the coolers on their cheaper cards makes me wish I had just waited...

So, same deal here.  I am running an Air 740 case that is LOADED with fans, all running in a nice intake / exhaust config.  The entirety of my computer runs extremely cool, save for the video card.

The 1080 Ti Armor is simply NOT cooled well enough - whether this is the fan not spinning fast enough, thermal paste application sucking or whatever, I have no clue.

All I know is that I am probably going to return it if we don't hear something from MSI soon.  It's really unacceptable.

Oh, as for the specifics - the card is very quickly hitting 80C, and even 90 depending on the game - all while my 7700k is MAXING at like 45C.

*sigh

I knew I was being impatient buying this card, but my logic was that I won't be OCing it, anyway, so it shouldn't be a problem.

If you arent willing to wait for a fix go for it, return it.

I'm managing since my cooling setup is decent, but I'd imagine a lot of people are going to run into throttling issues.

I'd mostly just like to see some sort of acknowledgment.

Can you confirm whether the fan RPM is an issue that needs to be fixed, or is it working as intended?

1080ti was just released but from your reports seems like fan speed is too low. If 100% is just 2400 rpm it will most likely select lower speeds normally and therefor high temps.

My 1080 ti Armor OC edition is running hot as well. It's in the low 80s in most games after 20 minutes. Upper 80s in Furmark after 10 minutes. When my fans are at %100, they run at 2472 RPM max, averaging at 2425 RPM. So they are supposed to be running at 4000 at %100? Will there be a fix for this?

Lets hope the first BIOS update fixes this. The best thing to do now is to remove the side panel of your case to expose the card to as much free air as possible and keep the fan at 100%

I also have the same issue. I got two Armor 1080 Ti's and both run at ~2400RPM at 100% fan speed.

I have the same issue. Card gets pretty hot up near 85c with an aggressive fan profile. 100% fan only goes to 2400 rpm. This is my first MSI card and its pretty disappointing to be honest. I should have gotten eVGA like i always do. Next card will be eVGA for sure.

After retesting I can confirm that 100% at about 2400 rpm is NO issue. It is normal for the fan size. The 1080 Gaming X I'm using will reach the same fan speed at 100%. 

Does everyone read high temps over 90°C under load? In these cases it might be a good idea to repaste the gpu with fresh thermal paste. Sometimes too much or not enough paste is applied.

For the others worried just about 2400 rpm at 100% you can rest assured.

Might be also good idea to contact local MSI office and ask if it's OK with breaking the warranty sticker :biggthumbsup:

Step 1: Provide inadequate cooling solution on your $710 card.

Step 2: Have moderators tell users to void their warranties.

It doesn't void warranty in all cases. This is specific to each country. In the UK, for example, I had no issues when I broke the sticker. But my friend in Poland was unlucky, as they told him that breaking the sticker there will void it. Therefore we recommend to ask local MSI branch.

The cooling is also not inadequate. it can easiely handle the temps but paste is manually applied and a weak spot if not done properly. Nobody also told you to void warranty. Usually all MSI offices will not consider the warranty void for repasting. So does HQ. It is a rare exception if there is a different information in most cases by a staff member not knowing about MSI's policy about it.

I'd rather just return the card. I got this card because I wanted lower temps compared to the FE 1080ti. Obviously that won't happen, and reapplying the gpu paste is a joke. Clearly it seems the issue is the heatsink and fans aren't adequate, unless nearly every MSI 1080 ti Armor OC card has had a bad paste job on it (seeing a lot of reports elsewhere about this card getting too hot)

For another card that isn't a 1080 ti, this likely wouldn't be an issue. But I guess the 1080ti needs a better cooling solution.

SAME HERE. Difference i bought gtx 1060 which is lik 130% less efficient and takes like twice less power than 1080ti, but still it can reach 80c at 90% power use. Its just a joke. Its worse than foiunders edition. Shame i couldnt return it, because according to them anything under 90c is fine and i feel cheated, because i payd like 30-40% more for this brick sack of potatoes heavy, clunky card to have smaller temps and quiet(i watched YT videos which sugested it, f*in sellout liers). What i got in return for paying for "quality product Made in China" is big temperatures, noice and huge sag in case with this heavy brick. I will never buy anything from them ever again, it looks like their customer support is same of a joke like they products, lol.

For the others worried just about 2400 rpm at 100% you can rest assured.

I reapplied the thermal paste with Arctic Silver 5 and it didn't help my temps. My process was to clean the factory paste with rubbing alcohol from the GPU and heatsink, then apply a vertical line of AS5 on the GPU before reseating the heatsink. Even 2 days after curing I am still reaching around 88-90C.

Also like others mentioned you have to go through a warranty void sticker to do this, and even if MSI still honors warranties without the sticker at any time they can cite it as a reason not to warranty the card... so I don't think telling customers to disassemble their card and risk voiding their warranty is an appropriate solution.

Same problem here. I hit 84c within 15 minutes playing Mass Effect Andromeda. By the one hour mark, maxed out at 89c.  Same thing with sniper 4 elite. The Witcher 3 and Fallout4 is not as bad, reaching 84c with witcher 3 and mid 70s with fallout4.  The video card is spinning full speed. Benchmarks are also running super hot. My case is a corsair obsidian 750d airflow, with two 120mm exhaust fans on top, one 140mm exhaust on the back, two 140mm intakes in the front, and one 120mm intake on the bottom. The only other components in the case is a hdd, one 2.5mm SSD, and one m.2 SDD, and a corsair hx750 power supply. Cabling is neatly routed and tied back, so airflow  is DEFINITELY not a problem.  I just packed up my 1080ti armor last night and started an RMA with newegg this morning. Luckily i still have my old video card.

Same issue here. Never had this problem with my MSI 970 or my Zotac 1070 will all the other components in my system being the same other than the video cards.

Hitting 88-90* gaming basically all the time.  Used to get 75-77* with my other cards I mentioned above. 

I wonder if the other 3rd party cards will run into this issue (inherent with the 1080ti)? 

Might return it to New Egg.

MSI needs to fix this either with firmware update or RMA process. 

Won't recommend this car to anyone else otherwise.

FYI: NewEgg will only replace the card with the same card. No refunds.

Most 3rd party 1080ti cards coming out have bigger coolers that take up 2.5 slots. I think the lower tier SC2 EVGA cards coming out soon are also only 2 slots, so maybe they might have problems too.

For some reason I can't edit my posts. 

So MSI Global Moderator states the below. This is horrible. Would like some sort of official statement about the temps and if this is normal and expected of this $700+ card.


80C is the target temperature the card is aiming for when its under load and the card will overclock itself until it hits that temp as long as it has enougth power ect to reach that temprature via GPU Boost 2.0 as long as its not throttling itself.

40C sounds totally normal at idle (in fact that is very low temp for idle so its good)

90C is its maximum safe temperature (95C it will shut itself down to prevent damage)

Sorry again for post spamming, but like I said it won't let me edit my posts.

So I'm currently running valley benchmark @1440p and @4k  with the card under clocked by -400mhz (using afterburner) with the card on its default fan curve.

This originally gave me a clock of 1531 at idle temps. Then it dropped to 1506@74*

After 4 minutes I'm at still at 1506mhz, but now at 84-85* and 91-92% fan speed.

I am also having some heat issues, although not as pronounced as some. Fan speed reported at 100% is around 2400 RPM. I haven't seen 80's or 90's but I will start creeping up towards 80 without tweaks.

Speaking of tweaks, the image attached below has been a great compromise between clock speed and heat for my set-up. You mileage (core clock throttling) may vary depending on your case and airflow. The fan speed ramps up as it does at 60 because this is where GPU Boost starts to throttle clock speed. It's not ideal, but I'm planning on buying an EK water block for it once they become available and adding it to the loop. Frankly at this point we have bought a custom PCB with absolutely no frills to keep cost down. This card IS PHYSICALLY IDENTICAL to the Gaming X; minus the updated cooler, LEDs, and back plate. For me this works, because as I mentioned, I'm putting it under water anyways.

For everyone else, try these settings out. The core clock OC is optional, but without the offset your clock speed is going to be down from where you want it to be when GPU Boost takes over.

My card don't actually reach the high temps some are reporting, but it does reach the high 70's low 80's C. My issue was just the RPM of ~2400 @100% fan speed. I think the card will perform better with faster fans.

Okay, so did a short stress test. How are these temps? I'm using an Antec 900 with 4 120mm fans (2 front, 1 Rear, 1 Side, 0 Ceiling fan - broke it today =( ). I overclocked the gpu core by 150 and memory to 500.

Everyone needs to calm down.
First off, MSI doesn't really need to do anything.

And certainly coming in here and demanding to other users (users which have no way of helping in that respect) that MSI needs to do something, will do absolutely nothing. Especially with that high and mighty attitude. You are not entitled to anything. Get over yourself and act like a decent human being. Why? Because making demands is the easiest way to ensure NOTHING gets done for you, because people will automatically go on the defensive and hold that stance. Be a little bit more humble about it, and people will be more willing to help you, because you aren't being an aggressive

As has been stated, if you want to talk to MSI, See : >>How to contact MSI.<<
Otherwise, understand that we are here to help, but we're regular users like yourself, and being aggressive or rude to us, is a sure way to ensure your only course of action is to talk to MSI directly.

I both agree and disagree with that statement. The attitude displayed by some people, not only on these forums, has been a little out of hand. However, to also state that MSI doesn't need to do anything besides take $710 from all of us in exchange for a product that, in some cases, exhibits thermal runaway conditions is also poor form. 

You don't buy a new Corvette and just "deal" with it overheating every time you get onto the highway. I'm not returning my card, as I'm putting it under water and have found a happy medium in settings, but that's not viable for everybody here. Quality control, or development, of this card with this cooler in particular feels rushed and I truly wonder if it was tested outside (or inside, rather, of real cases) of just putting it on an open air test bench.

I don't blame them; develop the Gaming X, throw a cheap cooler on it, no frills, and kick it out the door for $10 over the FE. It makes business sense, but it's horrible for us if money is better spent on a blower style card or waiting a week to pay a little more for a competent cooler. It makes the product pointless for the majority and is kinda baitey. By all means, cash in on the upgrade craze going on right now but you better put out a product that is worth the flagship price. Otherwise you're showing that if you can't be assed to properly QC a halo product then why would anyone trust something that costs $100, or even thousands in the case of their laptops. I used to have two 390X Gaming cards in Crossfire and they ran COOL, MSI is plenty capable of developing a competent, cheap card with a competent cooler.

This isn't meant to start a war with a moderator (not that stupid), but your statement is so anti-consumer it's crazy that you don't work for them directly.

We are "entitled" (and dear sweet baby jeebus, because you are a moderator, and politics don't belong here, I'm not going to touch on that word) to a product that works and displays the amount of craftsmanship and care we have come to expect from $710 flagship MSI AIB graphics cards. Seller beware is just as real life as buyer beware. Full stop.

For everyone that is not happy with their card, I wish you luck as this is a no-refund purchase on Newegg and you're likely to fight an uphill battle if you are going to attempt an actual refund. The settings displayed in my last post DO work. It has passed the Firestrike Stress Test http://www.3dmark.com/fsst/386180 This test measures frame rate consistency, therefore throttling, and the core clock did not drop below 1900's. Your mileage will vary depending on set-up, but it's a good starting point. You can lower or raise target temperature as you wish to fit in to what you're trying to do.

I guess it wasn't made clear enough.

So I'll make it extremely clear.

If you don't like the advice that was given here, that's fine. You're entitled to your opinion, just like I'm entitled to mine.
What I will not tolerate is users who don't seem to understand, or follow, the rules. See : >>Posting Guide<<
Plain and simple, this continues after this thread, you won't be a worry anymore here.

If you have a problem and you don't like the advice given here on what to do, then you can contact MSI directly. See : >>How to contact MSI.<<
But continuing it here is not an option. Which some still don't seem to be competent enough to understand.

I didn't even realize there is a heat issue till I started reading the post on Newegg.

Well I got mine today from Newegg ordered on Monday.  Haven't even open it yet.  

I called MSI Technical support here in City of Industry (I live in LA area).  Talked to Richie, and they said they are still working on it.

I honestly don't want to deal with this, having to send cards back and forth.

Going to try to get this thing return to Newegg.

So hey. I just created an account specifically for any news on a driver update / fan fix for the 1080 ti armor.
Luckily i still have it sealed, since it will(?) be going into a new build. On the fence about waiting for an official solution, or returning it to Newegg sealed for the gaming X.
I'm Just pissed my whole new theme is black & white which this card would fit perfectly, been waiting on the armor 1080 TI release for months & this is my luck, its a toaster.
I really feel like at this point with the abysmal Newegg reviews on heat & thermal runaway i should keep it sealed til further notice within my 30 day return window.
But then again it could be a simple fix to get the "proposed" (?) 4,000 rpm on the fans. I probably shouldn't chance opening it due to all these overwhelming one-egg reviews?
So stupid of me grabbing a $710 gpu before reviews, even though my MSI 980 gaming couldn't have been better.. Im giving MSI a second chance personally, But how did this card get out past QC?? 85-90c+ average?
any info on a driver or bios update / RMA is very much appreciated. I realize I am one of hundreds or more waiting on this info, i am sure.

~2400RPM is the design of the fan, so that works properly.
Note however, that "stock" clocks of MSI GTX1080Ti Armor OC are beyond actual Founders Edition card, with the addition of even higher boost clocks. Therefore it will run hotter. If you set the card to specification mentioned by Nvidia, what temps would you be getting?
You can set more aggressive fan curve, or add 1-2 fans to the chassis to increase airflow. I have 13 fans, all my parts are watercooled, and I still want more fans ;D

Note also that temperatures around 80°C are normal for an overclocked 250w+ TDP gpu. This isn't a GTX 1070.
