Asus Strix GTX 1080 Ti OC Ambient Temperature


HWiNFO 5.73.3350

Being busy since I've got my Strix, playtime was cut to a minimum.
Today, I played for about 2 hours and noticed hwinfo showing GPU Ambient Temperature with a max of 87 deg. Celsius.
This is while CPU max was 65 and GPU 68 deg. Celsius.
Room temperature ~ 22 deg. Celsius

Isn't the reported temperature a bit high? Might be a faulty sensor? Or wrong reading on behalf of hwinfo?
I could not find such a sensor in Asus GPU Tweak It II.
GPU running at Gaming Mode using Asus GPU Tweak It II.
CPU at 4.7 Ghz.
The rest of the components like M.2 SSD, HDDs, report a max temperature of 32 deg. Celsius
Anyone else with the same model care to share their max values?

Thank you

On all sites that thermal imaged this card, VRM temperatures reached 87-88 deg. Celsius. The same as reported by HWiNFO as Ambient Temperature on mine.
If there is anything I can provide to help, let me know.
