NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X Testing:

Temperature testing will be accomplished by loading the video card to 100% using Unigine Heaven Benchmark Version 4.0, with MSI Afterburner overclocking utility for temperature monitoring. I will be using a resolution of 1920x1080 using 8xAA and a five-run sequence to run the test, ensuring that the maximum thermal threshold is reached. The fan speed will be left in the control of the driver package and video card BIOS for the stock load test, with the fan moved to 100% to see the best possible cooling scenario for the overclocked load test. The idle test will involve a twenty-minute cooldown, with the fan speeds left on automatic in the stock speed testing and bumped up to 100% when running overclocked.



  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner
  • Unigine Heaven 4.0 1920x1080 8x AA
  • 5-run sequence
  • 20-minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius


















When you look at the cooling results of the GTX Titan X, it's interesting to see how it cools in relation to the rest of the cards using cooling solutions that are of the same basic design. From the reference GTX 770 on up to the GTX Titan X, you get pretty comparable results under load. The Titan X is just three degrees warmer than the GTX 980 under load using the default fan profile on the Titan X. Pretty impressive when you see the big increase in transistor count. Under load when overclocked we see roughly the same scenario play out, but with the roles reversed between the GTX 980 and GTX Titan X. This just goes to show you that NVIDIA put together a cooling solution design back when the Kepler-based GTX 690 was introduced that still proves to be relevant close to three years later.
