Any tips on getting a cooler 630i?

I got two Xigmatek XLF-F1253 fans at the front of my case, running at max all the time (1500 RPM). And I've also installed a 92mm fan at the back as an exhaust.

My temps (IDLE GTS 240):
GPU: 54C (80-100C under load)
Temp1:39C
HD0 32C

Core1: 26C
Core2: 26C
Core3: 22C
Core4: 21C


I got no problems with my CPU heat, the temps seems to be normal, what bothers me is the GPU, I am getting 90-100C in Bad Company 2. I want it reduced.. Any tips?

Am I right in assuming that you're running your GPU fan speed at 100% when gaming? If so, either your game settings/screen resolution are set too high, or your GPU may(?) have a problem--maybe needs dust blown out of it, or perhaps something worse is at fault?

A reference GTS 240's average temp under 100% load/stress is ~70C to ~75C which is normal. Since the temps you are experiencing are higher, I will also agree with gdonner regarding increasing the gpu fan speed to if that will make a difference. If not, then you should consider buying another GPU.

Well this only occurs when I am playing Bad Company 2. I can't controll the GPU fan, it is on auto I guess.

I'll buy this one soon.

Does 2gb make a big difference? What is the difference between 2gb and 1gb. Resolution?

I have been burned by MSI on video cards. Several of us have been burned.

Myself included. I will only purchase EVGA cards. However, MSI TwinFrozr cards are great temp-wise, but seriously read the user reviews. I'm sure they're not all bad, but there are some models out there that arn't worth two-shits.

I also RMAed twice and they upgraded me to a 570 GTX which gives the same problem...just like all the user reviews...Except they didn't tell me that when they give me that "upgrade" I'm no longer under warranty.

Jackasses.

Yeah, great way to treat your customers and get them to buy more of your products :shock: Must not have bothered taking Business 101.*cough cough*

Some companies never learn.

I think the 9800's were hot anyway, especially if sli'd. I use the nvidia software to control my front fans and that is it. I think I have them set to 25-30% or so. I also use msi afterburner. Works great for me anyway. If you haven't yet, try cleaning out your 9800's. You're using 2 x 4GB mem sticks? Not sure how well that is going to work as the stock mobo is spec'd for 4 x 2 GB sticks. Also, if you're having issues with the nvidia software controlling the front fans, you need to make sure the esa firmware is up to date. The latest is in the resource collective page.
