    Any MSI RTX 2080 Ti Sea Hawk X owners on here?

    Please tell me your temps. My GPU is easily sky rocketing towards 70°C in no time.

    I have tried various configurations of rad/fan placement and tried difference locations inside the case. Always the same result.

    I have 2000-2100 MHz running through it.

    What are other Sea Hawk X owners temps, please let me know? Thnx.

    Maybe pm Scum on these forums pretty sure he has a 2080ti sea hawk at the moment.

    What happens if you knock the OC down?

    Thank you for the referal, will PM him.

    Good question though, I havent tried to knock the OC down. Might have to test that situation out later.

    Based on Scum's temps, sounds like your card isn't properly pasted :)

    Oh I guess that sort of setup has netted you a decent few °C cooler temps?

    My setup is inside a massive 900D case.

    depending on your airflow setup you'd still assume a 50 - 60 degree temp, how ever a massive overclock maybe why your temps are rather high, its only a 120 rad afterall

    yeah i don't think high temps while OCing is an acceptable reason to RMA.....

    Well I agree with your point a little bit. It's just that, before this GPU I had a GTX 1080 Ti ROG STRIX OC with an another added +75 MHz ontop which gave me about ~2050 MHz. That card only saw a max temp of 65°C with automatic/default fan profile (65% fan max), inside my case with the exact same setup, and that is an air cooled card.

    I bought the Sea Hawk X hoping that I will see much lower temps. But this card shoots 70°C within minutes on a manual 85% fan profile! Makes me feel like there is something wrong, I am very dissapointed and totally wish I stuck with the ROG STRIX version, that is a solid card compared to this crappy MSi card

    Don't mention overclocking to them though
    Just say it seems to be running too hot for a liquid cooled card...

    take the heatsink off and re paste it with some good paste. if that doesnt fix it then you might have a crap binned chip and could possibly have grounds to RMA.

    I am going two 2080tis in a 900D. Can you PM me and we can chat. :)

    I had 1080ti in SLI before and it was always cold in the case

    Since when is 70c hot for ann overclocked gpu? Is that a joke? No way your getting an rma on a product working as intended.

    They make no temperature guarantees.

    70C is probably about right. Can't expect much from a tiny 120mm rad and inbuilt pump. Rad only looks to be about 30mm thick so there isn't much surface area to dump all that heat.

    Have you tried a better fan on the rad? Something with high static pressure could possibly net you a few degrees considering the stock one looks to be utter crap.

    You can't compare Scums temps to your own as he is using the actual MSI/EK full coverage block, not the all in one hybrid X version that you have which combines air and water. HUGE difference.

    This is what Scum is running by the looks of it:

    Scum is also using an open case & he is also a pro overclocker & cannot be compared.

    Temps vary massively on many different factors. 70c is nothing to worry about. Carry on.

    Yeah a single 120mm rad can cool a GPU fine but dont the expect temps of a bigger water cooling system. I would say 70c isn't to bad really.

    I like to have a 360mm rad per device if you want it to be silent and cool.

    Why is everyone saying 70°C is not too bad for an OCd card. I know that is not bad, and is totally acceptable!

    But all those guys are failing to see my point, why pay the premium for a watercooled card when it cools worse than an air cooled card!

    Thats what I was getting at
