Temperatures were measured after 5 minutes of load under three scenario: Furmark, Unigine Heaven and desktop idle in sequential order with 2 minutes of downtime in between each test. GPU-Z was used to record the maximum temperature, fan profiles on GPUs were left to their default behaviour.
Delta temperatures are presented below to account for small fluctuations in room temperature, but for all the testing present in this graph the temperature ranged from 21.6 to 23.1 degrees Celsius.
Temperatures were the hottest of all GTX 1080 Ti graphics card we tested but only by a single degree. Factoring in the overall level of performance and noise and the temperature readings are a whole lot more impressive.
We struggled to find any hotspots on the MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X with our thermal camera. The only component part which measured over 70 degrees Celsius was a heat pipe which, incidentally, is meant to carry heat.
