EVGA 570 SLI temperatures.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hello;

It looks like this:

I've yust bought HAF X. Inside I've got my two 570 SLI. Temperature of one of them its always 5 deg higher in full load. The thing is that it is always ! I've tried everything. Difrent fan configurations, cleaning the card, putting cards in difrent slot etc. Even when I swap them and this card is on the bottom. its temperature is higher than one above ! Temps I think are ok, after 30 minutes of Heaven Benhmark when is 25 deg in the room on the cards I've got 84 and 79 deg. But can you tell me; why one of them is ALWAYS 5 deg hotter ???

Before I put water blocks on my (2) evga 570s, I ran them on air to test them. Same case you have, and the one on top ran about 7 degrees warmer when folding. It was consistent over night, ran that way for about 2 days straight. After I took them apart to put on water blocks, I found the TIM looked like someone put it on with a shovel. It was everywhere on the hotter card, so much I that I stopped and went to Fry's to get more Arctic Clean to get it all off. Now with the same water blocks on both, I stay at 40*C on both folding 24/7 with both overclocked.

Are you saying the top one is 5c hotter or 1 of them is always 5c hotter than the other, regardless if its on top or bottom? Well the top cards are always gonna be hotter, just be lucky it's only 5 degrees.

Different cards run slightly differently, either different VID and/or different thermal paste application.
One of my cards has a VID of .987 and the other 1.025. I used to have the 1025 on top and 987 on bottom and I'd get max temps of around 80 for top card 65 for bottom. Now I've switched them up so the lower VID one is on the top and my temps are more like 75 top 70 bottom. Hope that helps.

That is very normal for the top to be a bit warmer, make sure to set a custom fan profile if you want to keep the heat low. When I was running 570s in SLI, both cards did not pass 75c. They were 75/72ish overclocked respectively with a good fan profile from MSI Afterburner.

If the constant is 1 card is hotter no matter how you change positions it could just be the way it was manufactured, not faulty, but, not everything is coming into contact as it should, something like that.

In most SLI setups the top card will have less breathing room and runs hotter, but that doesn't seem to be what's occurring with your setup since changing positions still renders 1 specific card to be hotter regardless of where its located.

One other change I forgot to mention with this case is the side fan- it stinks. Although the holes didn't line up properly and I had to make a slight adjustment, I went with the 200mm NZXT FN-200RB RPM fan that is rated for 166CFM. This DRASTICALLY cooled my case off, dropped some temps by 14*C. The stock 200mm fans on this case stink.

The noise is minimal, with no high pitched sound at all. I have a 3x120 rad at the top of the case where the other 2 200mm fans were installed, otherwise I would have swapped them out for these as well. I use a Zalman 6- fan controller and notice the least noise from that one. Just to remind you though, the mounting holes will NOT line up, I used 2 of the original holes and 2 screws w/ washers to mount the other two. Might not be the prettiest setup, but it works extremely well.

NZXT also makes a lower RPM version that moves much less air and runs at a much lower pressure, I tried that one but wasn't impressed at all.

All cards are created slightly different. This could be an issue with the manufacturing or perhaps one of the heatsinks needs to be reseated. If you want, just take the heatsink of the hotter card off, use 99% alcohol to get the TIM off of the GPUs, reapply new TIM and tighten the heatsinks. That might help.
