Sli 580's

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, im itching to upgrade to two of these beasts very soon now i have saved a bit of money. I will probably get the 3gb ones. What im a little wary about is cooling issues. I have read about the stock cooling being quite good but was wondering should i look into the 'arctic cooling accelero xtreme plus' to put on these cards? Water isnt really an option im afraid, although i would love it.

Thanks

If you don't mind a little temperature issue expect these to be topping out in the mid 90's in SLi.

Not sure about the aftermarket cooling, but watercooling for decent temps is pretty much the only option.

the AXP is awesome cooler. i used to have that on my 580 before i got a 6990. was running the fan at max speed (was limited to 85% for some reason) and i couldnt hear it. never went over 60C. i say go for it.

If you have space and great ventilation then go for it, otherwise it will just serve to heat up all of your other components - even with tri-sli I never get over 90c on stock cooling, the stock coolers have really gotten much better these days!

I just recently went to 580 sli, and my temps haven't even got into the 80s. The fan isn't quiet, but it doesn't go very high either. If you are concerned about noise though, you might want to put on something aftermarket.

I'd say save the money though, you have a case with good airflow. At least try them with the stock cooler first.

The GTX 580 runs pretty cool as long as your case has good air flow. They get a bit loud if pushing fan past 80%. You should try first without the aftermarket cooler to see if they get too hot in your case. I can tell you that I had 1 of my cards in the bottom slot with not much room and got so hot that my case was hot to the touch. But like I said if you got space between the cards and the bottom of the case they should run pretty cool. Also I think that the Accelero cooler takes 3 slots so you might not be able to fit 2 of those in your case with other pci cards. EVGA has high flow brackets and back plates that should help with cooling too. Good thermal paste never hurts either.

So long as you don't have the cards sandwiched together, your temps should be fine.

The Palit/Gainward and Zotac 3GB 580s use custom coolers if you're really concerned.

Is this true? So EVGA is best to go for really?

My 580 lightnings are way overclocked and i get to around 78c on air but these things are beasts when it comes to staying cool ( at least for me )

You can get two GTX 580s on newegg WITH the AXPs for $20 less than two EVGA ones with the stock cooler right now:

It's a pretty good deal.
