I noticed that my EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black is running hotter than usual since a few months ago. I cleaned out the dust from the front fan filter and it made very little difference except that it will take longer to reach 82C in Valley (Extreme Test) and it will cool down faster after benchmarking it or during less intense scenes in Valley but it still reaches 82C. Then I removed that bottom hard drive bay that was blocking the front intake fan in my case. This time it reached 80C and the fans on the heatsink of the card don't seem to spin as fast as before I removed the bottom hard drive bay and therefore the graphics card is a little quieter now for a given temperature on the GPU and the GPU now seems to cool down quicker after being stressed. I have a 140 mm front intake fan and a rear 120 mm exhaust fan for case cooling. Also if I overclock my 4930k to 4.4GHz from stock then my card will reach 84C in the last scene of Valley (Extreme Test). Is my GTX 1080 Ti running too hot considering it's using aftermarket cooling?
