I am running an EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 with a i7-7700k 4.2Ghz CPU and as soon as I open the game it goes from 36*C straight to 65*C and then gradually goes up towards and past the 75*C until the card cuts itself of. I am using MSI Afterburner with a fan speed of 65% which is so loud and it still rises in temperature. What is causing this? The card is newly bought, is used for rendering CG for my work etc and never causes me issues so what is causing this?

I forgot to ask: What resolution are you playing at? If you're trying to run Satisfactory on max settings @ 1440p or above then this is probably the reason. A RTX 2080 is barely enough to run Unreal Engine 4 games like this @ 1440p and above. If you are trying to do this then it probably has your card maxed out just to try and do it even with vsync, and the temperatures are probably realistic.

Either you unchecked it or forgot it was off. Which ever the reason, you have Vsync unchecked in graphics settings for Satisfactory. Or you may have disabled Vsync globally via the nvidia control panel on the global profile. I would suggest you go check one of or both of these places and make sure Vsync is -ENABLED- and this won't happen ever again for you.

I play the game in a RTX 2060 for hours and no problem here.

Modern processors such as those found in videocards all have built in throttling to ensure that it's temperatures stays within a workable range. If your card has throttling disabled, then you should most definitely enable it. It will reduce the frequency when the load is lower and raise it when needed unless the temperature is already above a certain threshold.

My 1060 reaches about 72 degrees when pushed to 100% and stays there. It is a safe operating temperature. In practice, anything under 85 is fine. Anything above 100 is encroaching on dangerous territory.

To be had, I had 2 EVGA cards a few years back, and both died within about a year and a half. My guess is that they "cooked themselves". I've stayed away from EVGA since then.

The culprit is not necessarily your videocard. You might want to look at your computer case and make sure that it's properly ventilated. Many modern computer cases have a solid front panel. The end result is that the hot air gets trapped in the computer. Not enough fans could also be your problem. Most cases don't come with enough fans. You should have at least 2 in front, and 1 in the back, and that's a bare minimum.
