Thermal Imaging

The back of the PCB heats up to 88 C, which is not really that surprising considering this is a 250W TDP card. I wouldn’t touch it though.

GPU Temperature

The only way to keep this card below 70C under load is by setting 100% fan speed, but since that’s more than 2400 RPM, it is simply not recommended unless you don’t mind a small jet engine in your case.

Fan Speed

Even our custom fan profile wasn’t enough to keep this card from reaching 70C. It only gave us a 1C drop.

Cool Down

It takes around 40 seconds for ARMOR 2X cooler to reach idle temperature. Then the fan stops and the temperature rises again.
