Thread Starter 
Just added another GTX470 for SLi. Before with one card idle temp on the card was 30c now that I have added the second both of them are at 45c.

post #4 of 13
I tested some stuff like this with my setup

1 GTX580 idle on 35-37c fan auto on 40%
2 GTX 580 close together without space the bottom card idle on ~40c top idle on 45 and after some hours get to ~48-50c (top card fan on 42%)

now I put my bottom card 1 pcie down and the upper card idle on 44-46c and bottom on 40-42c


when load on games like metro they both reach around 80c fan about 50-55% the appear card dont exceed 81c and bottom 2-4c lower

but the temp in the room is pretty high at list 24-28c most of the time and its not even summer yet

havent check the temp in the case cause I was to lazy to connect some wires to the fanC... :S

Bottom: 40C, Top: 47C

Ambient is around 80F.

The twin-frozr II design tends to make the top card run pretty warm since it doesn't really exhaust heat out of the case, plus w/the hole in the PCB on the 470, some of the heat from the bottom card just blows straight up at the fan of the top card.

Looking at HWMonitor right now it looks like the top card is idling at 27C and the bottom at 28C. Under load the top is 53C and the bottom is 47C. Under heavy load for long periods both cards will get to my 70C threshold for 100% fan usage and will go no higher....

Set the fan to 60% at idle and have got 39c when playing BF2 MAXED OUT returning 64c. So am really happy with the results. Just one thing, Any long term effects from running the fans at a faster pace?

so 60 percent at idle? does the noise bother you


i haven't had fruitcake in a while...

but it's normal to have cards run hotter if in sli or crossfire... no worries man

GPU1 - 45c idle 85c load when gaming
GPU2 - 41C idle 80c load when gaming

This is one of the reasons why I need to go watercooling. Tired of seeing these high temps.
