    Posted: 15 Jul 2010 at 7:17pm
Hello all,

I got my CP PC a couple of weeks ago with the ASUS 5770 video card. I had heat issues with the entire system, so I installed 3 new fans for a total of 5 (3 intake, 2 exhaust). CPU temps have been amazing since installing the new fans (i7 975 idle at 32C). However, this video card is giving me fits. Idle is 50C and load is 94C at all stock settings. Other than the common response from CP tech , "That there card just runs hot" (which is interesting given the wealth of articles on the web noting that this card runs noticeably cooler than similar models)....anyway....does anyone have any ideas on what might be going on here. The difference between idle and load is what really gets me...it is a huge spread.

The card is probably running in the right temps.  You can try to manually set the fan speed up in the CCC overclocking area but it will run like that all the time.
The other thing to do is to get a water cooling system for it.  Not sure on your fans positioning but I am sure you have a draft flowing in the case now.  One last thing you could try is to remove the plastic housing from around it and see if that helps the temps.  If not snap it back on..  This may allow more airflow to the heat sink rather then channeling it.

Thank you for the reply. I run the fan at 100% while doing any gaming. It usually gives me about 2 to 3 degrees cooling. I think liquid cooling might be a good idea but at these temperatures, any overclocking in the future will be all but impossible, even with liquid cooling. Also, there is no plastic housing on the card. I guess I'm just stuck with what I have until I can get together some more money.

If you have the design without the houseing try to get a few fans that you can attach to the side of the heatsink even with zipties.

Also it would void warranty but you can always research the possibility of replacing the TIM with a better type.  May yield a slightly better temp.  Research is the key here.
There are no rules to adding fans even at angles  Just make sure you don't damage any components in the process.

Just thought I would post this in case anyone else is having this problem. I removed the fan and heatsink and there was thermal paste everywhere. It was an absolutely awful job by whoever did it (Asus or CP?). The paste was all around the dye and caked into every nook and cranny. Completely unacceptable. Anyway, I cleaned for about an hour with Arcticlean and then replaced. Now I top out at 75 under full load ( as opposed to 95 degrees). Sure it voids the warranty, but I'd much rather have a card I can use.

Thats great to hear you were able to get such a change with reapplying the heatsink to the card. Videocards are all pre-assembled by the manufacturer, Cyberpower does not construct those items except testing and installing them in a build.

They sort out my problem in a very short period of time. I am very thankful to them that they had given me such a kind service by which I feel very special.
