Aorus box 3080 overheating / xps 9700 / win 10
Hello to everyone
I have a problem since yersteday with my aorus box 3080 wich was working fine.
As i began to play on my xps 9700, fps started to drop drastically. Tuched my box , it was running very hot without adapting the fan speed . Then i exit the game , and checked temp: Over 86 degrees which never hapenned before( was more like 50–60 degrees in game) .
tried to unplug, and restart : same. Then made ddu driver uninstall, reinstalled drivers, still no adaptation of the fan speed .
reinstalled bios of my xps, thunderbolt driver and application, no success.
tried to check via afterburner : no reaction to manual changes of the fan speed nor curve.
And it was all of a sudden, just since yersteday pluging . The temps were fine before.
tried the reset Button. No changes.
i tried to flash the aorus box bios, hoping this Will Fix the problem , but the utilitary downloaded from gigabyte says « can t recognize bios version » and stops. Aorus engine can tell it’s the F1 version .( so i downloaded the matching version on the support page ).
i guess this is a software problem but i’m oit of ideas.
i’d like to flash the bios with the f1 version , just to « reset » the box , but i don’t know Where to find it and how to do this ...
so i’m stuck with a black boiler, unable to play anymore, as it reaches 85 degrees in à Few minutes...
can anybody help me please?
@papoose02, Open the side panels and check the fan connections to the mainboard. When I took apart the RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Box to review, the fan connector wasn't fully connected to the mainboard header and I experienced the same issue you described. When the fans are working normally, temps should run no higher than low 60s.
@papoose02, I'm glad to hear. The water cooling system in these Gaming Boxes is actually very good except for loose fan connectors.
@papoose02, I haven't done any firmware updates. You can give it a try to see if there's improvement.
