    Hello guys, I want just little advice from you. I built brand new computer from these components:
    Intel Core i7 7700K
    Asus PRIME Z270-P
    EVGA GeForce GTX 1080Ti FTW3 GAMING
    Kingston 32GB DD4 300Mhz
    Kraken x62 watercooling AIO
    NZXT s340 elite
    etc.

    what should I do before playing some games. Like, what drivers should I install and others. Cause I think, that my GPU is overheating. When I started to play PUBG, the case was almost on fire.

    Get bad feeling about setting this machine really wrong.

    P.S. Sorry for my english, I´m not from any english speaking country.

    Thanks for advices. Have a good day.

    The power supply is corsair rm650x.
    Temps on the gpu are between 50-70C.

    That's decent temps. 80C is when you should look into it.
    Are you experiencing fps drops?

    Not really, but the main problem is, that i am worry about the case, the tempered glass is really hot.

    What's your casefan configuration?

    What's the CPU temps under load?
    You can use "core damage" to put 100% load on your CPU and monitor it with CPU-ID

    I would suspect cpu is overheating due to wrong water cooler installation or possible bad case airflow. Are there fans in the front?

    My cpu is not overheating, just case in the area of the gpu. I'll try to test the cpu temps.

    With the "core damage" it´s 60degrees.

    At idle in Celsius? That's a problem

    No, at the full load it´s 60degrees. At idle it´s 25-30degrees.

    That's a pretty good result. Seams like your PC is working fine.
    How about adding an additional exhaust fan. Preferably top mounted. Might take away some of the heat inside the case that's building up.

    What's your case fan setup btw? and is the Kraken x62's radiator fans installed as intake or exhaust?

    I have one fan on top (exhaust), one on backside (exhaust) and two at front with radiator from Kraken as intake.

    That's the exact setup i would have used. Can't tell what the problem is then... if there even is a problem.
    I haven't had a case with a tempered glass window before. Maybe they just get hot to the touch quickly were as acrylic does not. I don't know.

    Hey Forum, does anyone of you guys have experience with the difference between acrylic and tempered glass as opposed to heat absorption?

    Those appear to be normal temp parameters you're providing. Nothing's overheating. GPUs just run THAT hot under high usage. Only way you can really drop those GPU temps is if you run an AIO/Custom loop on it.

    EVGA Makes an addon/swap kit for your 1080ti FTW3 if you REALLY want to bring the temps down.

    Thanks :) and thanks, all of you, for your replies. It's my first build, so I just want to be everything fine. And if you say so, then it is. Thank you.
