I have one card that just refuses to cool down for me. I have relocated to an open air rig, plenty of airflow, even have one of those “turbo fans” I borrowed from the wife blowing on the rig… It’s not dangerously hot but I want it to be below 70 like its twin… Any suggestions? Should I disassemble and replace thermal pads? I have fans set to autofan, but even when I forced it to run 100% it won’t drop below 72 so I would rather not hear the card screaming if the temp remains the same… lol
There is also that EVGA 1660 that runs fine but stopped reporting fan speed… on reboot it comes back but then goes away again… It’s an old card so I’ll probably just retire it???
