Hey everyone, two weeks ago I bought my first pc at digital storm a lynx level 2-3 (the rtx 2060 version) I receive it last week and was really happy until I saw the thermal issues affecting my gpu while running games like ARK survival or Rainbow six. This really made me insecure since my gpu was supposed to handle this games pretty well, yesterday night while playing ARK I got scared of the temperature since it was over the 80 Celsius then I touched the temp glass side panel and felt a huge amount of heat so I decided to take it off, as soon as I took the panel off my gpu temperature went from 80+ to 60 running ARK at epic/high settings and 120+ FPS.

I just wanted to know if there is any way to improve the airflow on this case or I should just take the panel off when playing games (which I really don’t understand why I should be doing this since the pc should be able to run them perfectly)

Are your GPU fans spinning up properly? they may not run at all when idling, but should spin up and maybe get kinda loud under load.

That said, 80C or a little over is not out of spec for an RTX 2060. It is, in fact, considered normal, meaning the card is well-designed to take it indefinitely. You don't have to take the panel off. Dangerous is anything over 90.

Do check those fans, and don't just take my word, check with DS tech. Peace of mind is very real.

Those are not gpu killing temps but the fact that they go down when you remove the panel shows that you can have lower temps with better air flow. Maybe there is room somewhere for an additional fan blowing cool air into the case. Check your fans to see where they are blowing their air, etc. You should have more cfm blowing in than blowing out.
