i have only read of the problem with the gtx 1070 and 1080 ftw editions. i haven't seen any mentions of the gtx 1060 or your model...
also, that temperature from gpu-z is probably only the gpu chip/die and not including the vrm temps. if that's the case, you wouldn't see any dangerous vrm temps reflected in gpu-z.
this picture is from the toms hardware review, notice the gpu temp at 75.8c vs memory at 96c and vrm at 106.8c
I am guessing that since my card can deliver a highly overclocked full CUDA load with only 51.5% TPD that Premiere users may not have any sort of thermal problem with at least this card.
if the memory is overclocked but the core isn't, like you often recommend, it would be possible to have lower overall tdp reported from gpu-z but still have the memory and memory vrm(s) pushing high voltage and temps. if the cooling issue also effects the memory vrm(s), then it would be dangerous for these cards to overclock memory. supposedly some are having problems with those cards even without overclocking. again, the article has nothing to do with the gtx 1060 or your model, so you would have to investigate your card if worried.
evga has updated the thermal pad page to include a list of affected cards, which expands to more models and some of the gtx 1060 lineup. they are also offering a bios update to increase fan speeds and favor a bit more cooling over low noise.
- Q. Which cards are supported by these updates?
- A. EVGA ACX 3.0 GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 or 1060 cards with the following part numbers:
GTX 1080 GTX 1070 GTX 1060 6G GTX 1060 3G 08G-P4-6181 08G-P4-5171 06G-P4-6262 03G-P4-6365 08G-P4-6183 08G-P4-5173 06G-P4-6366 03G-P4-6367 08G-P4-6284 08G-P4-6171 06G-P4-6265 03G-P4-6167 08G-P4-6286 08G-P4-6173 06G-P4-6264 03G-P4-6165 08G-P4-6384 08G-P4-6274 06G-P4-6267 08G-P4-6386 08G-P4-6276 06G-P4-6368
- Q. If my Graphics Card is not an ACX 3.0 design is it affected?
- A. No, all other GPUs sold by EVGA including Founders Edition, Blower type, HYBRID, and HYDRO COPPER editions are unaffected.
- Q. Does the VBIOS fix the temperature issues?
- A. Yes, the VBIOS update will fix the temperature issues.
evga has released new cards with "icx" cooling to replace the "acx". the cards are mostly the same, but slightly redesigned cooling with thermal pads, a few upgraded power delivery components, and new/additional temp sensors. the sensors seem to be the most interesting part and perhaps most important part. the problem with the old design (and many other video cards out there) was it only used the gpu temp for its fan curve. however these new gtx 1000 series pascal chips are running much cooler than previous gen chips, leading to power components and memory running hotter. with these new temp sensors the cooling can respond to the needs of the gpu core, power components, and memory. there is also additional temp details in the software to see those temps, as well as on the video card itself. there doesn't seem to be a widespread problem with pascal cards and cooling, but if things continue with nvidia designing more efficient gpu cores this might become more standard. it would be important, or at least handy, for anyone only overclocking memory.
