Improper thermal behavior by MSI GTX 560 TI Hawk
I recently got myself two MSI GTX 560 TI Hawk graphic cards. I am using it for past one week and I am experiencing a problem regarding the heat it is generating. The main purpose of the graphic card for me is for gaming. I play heavy games like Rage and Mass Effect 3. When I am running the game on full resolution and full graphics detail like Anti-aliasing and VSync raised to its full values. After starting the game, for around fifteen minutes the temperature remains stable on 60 degree Celsius. It is normal to have temperature of 60 degree Celsius while gaming, but after 15 minutes, the temperature goes up to 75 degree Celsius. I ignored it completely and kept playing for another half an hour and then I saw that temperature had risen up to 93 degree Celsius. I have increased the speed of my fan to make it run at full speed, but still no difference has been noticed. I tried downclocking my graphic card to see if it was due to over voltage consumption that caused these problems, but it only increased the time which required for the temperature to rise in the graphic card. I am satisfied by the quality of the graphics that the graphic card provides and also satisfied by its performance. Can someone tell me why the temperature is rising so high and can it be solved?
