Powerspec G467 — Micro Center

Powerspec G467

I purchased the Powerspec G467 a few weeks ago.  This system features the Asus TUF RTX 3080.  Unfortunately, the case chosen is poorly ventilated.  The front is completely solid with some small vents on the side.  Everyone knows the RTX 30 series cards run hot.  Needless to say, after about 3 to 3.5 hrs of gaming, the system crashes every time.  The side of the case next to the GPU is VERY hot to the touch.  I haven't yet used MSI's Afterburner to adjust the fan curves, but aside from that, any tips on getting this thing cooler or improving the air intake?  There doesn't seem to be hot air flowing out either, it's like the poor intake is just keeping the hot air trapped, cooking the GPU.  For the money this system cost, you think Microcenter would have used a well ventilated case.

  • Hello @JamesHatesEverything

    Thank you for posting on the Micro Center Community!  The specific build for this Powerspec has been tested thoroughly and hasn't seen thermal issues that would cause it to crash.  When you are feeling for air exhausting out, you are feeling from the top of the build?  The air should be exhausting out through the radiator.  Can you also monitor the temps and tell us what temps you are seeing?

    My temps on my G467 are at 83-85 when playing Overwatch. Sitting here (just this site, task manager and Discord) right now I'm at 58-60. Rocket League shoots it up to 83 in MENU not even in game play. So needless to say, I'm in the same boat and have now reached out via text, email, chat and phone. Decided to come here to see if anyone else had the issue. Mine has the ASUS TUF 3080 and has very good air flow in every direction. 
  • Hello @MattyDubs. Thank you for this input. I'll report this to our Quality Team and see if this issue is a trend on the system.
