Just setup crossfire, RIDICULOUS heat, BSOD!

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
Okay, here goes.

I got my second 5850 yesterday, and didn't get the chance to put it in until today. I put it in, put on the crossfire bridge, etc. Enabled crossfire in CCC, and downloaded MSI AB to check temps/usage/etc of both cards while I game.

So I loaded up BC2, GPU 1 was around 67C and GPU2 was hanging around 84-87C. I was playing for not even ten minutes when I BSOD'd. I said to myself "that's weird, the cards weren't that hot". So I went into the BIOS upon reboot just to check CPU temp...

....It was 85C.

I immediately touched my case and it was SCORCHING hot. The front of the case, the side window, etc. All INCREDIBLY hot to the touch. So I booted into Windows and loaded up Realtemp, idle temps were 66C and not dropping, at least for the 15 seconds I stared at them they didn't.

I immediately shut down and unplugged everything and brought my rig to my work table. I opened the side window and I just felt the heat smack me in the face. Oddly, my two 5850s weren't too hot... But when I touched the H70 pump and rad I had to pull my hand away.

WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG!!!

Edit: Just got up to touch the H70 pump and rad, they are both still hot to the touch mad.gif I'm afraid to boot it up again frown.gif

Sounds like heat built up in the system due to fans stopping somewhere.

Check to make sure all your fans are working.

Willing to bet one of two things. You have all the fans set as intake or the fans on your h70 stopped.

Should I let it cool down for a few more minutes or just plug it in and check all the fans?

Check all your fans and also get some more airflow over the cards. Heat has a habit of building up between cards.

Just take off the side panel and leave it off. Check to make sure all fans are working. Turn on your computer and check the fans. Make sure the fan at the back of the case is exhaust. Even if it is where your h70 is.

Okay, I'll plug it in right now and check the fans. And how would I go by doing that? I have some pretty decent cable management now, no wires in the way of both of those cards or anything.

Okay, just plugged everything back in. CPU idle temps are perfectly normal again, sitting around 33C.

Apparently there was so much heat from both cards it caused my PC to overheat.

How the heck would I fix that? Both fans running at 90% fan speed?
post #8 of 59
With your board there should be plenty of space between the cards. Asus did a good job of spacing out the pcie slots on your board.

I still feel like you may just have all the fans on intake or your h70 fans stopped working.

An idea, for a fast cool solution. (Safe ish)

Take case outside, take 1-2 cans of compressed air. Flip cans upside down, fire first can into case, then fire 2nd if needed. Then wait another 1-5mins (maybe 10), Then perform maintenance. This will guarentee case is below freezing initially, or close to.
