EVGA GTX 580 SC SLI temps - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I have the MSI Lightning Extreme edition in SLI
Never hit more than 40 in idle or 70 when gaming. But it will go up to 80 if i stress the cards to the max..
But most cards should be able to handle 90+ with abit of care.

thats pretty good for sli how far are the cards apart and do you have the fans set on like 60% if you dont i would suggest adjusting the fan speeds with afterburner or somthing

They are a single slot apart, so the top one is always 5-10 degrees hotter atleast. Havent changed the fan settings with afterburner, but the frozen twin 3 is exceptionel at cooling so not really a problem.
It can even handle me overclocking a little, still keeping them below 80!

I'm running dual GTX 580 3GB cards in SLI on an ASUS Sabertooth x79 with an i7-3960X @ 3.3GHz and since putting them in this Silverstone TJ11 case, I am seeing idle temps between 30C and 32C and at full load (Battlefield 3 with everything on ultra) with triple-digit FPS I have yet to see either card break 60C.

My fan profile in EVGA Precision is fairly quiet and doesn't ramp up to 100% speed until around 65C. The entire rig is air-cooled with stock fans, except for the Corsair H80 which takes up the 120mm top exhaust fan position. The "stack cooling" design with the motherboard flipped and rotated 90-degrees has been expensive but I think it has really made the difference. Think this might be cool enough to start dabbling in some OC?

I dont get why people are always saying "that is to high"... these reference cards run hot and that is totally normal. I have even contacted EVGA about this and they said that 90c is normal for these 580 reference cards. To those of you who claim to always get 56c temps, its probably because you do not have a reference card.

and flerndip, the reason your cards are not getting as hot is because you DO have a fan profile set up to ramp up to 100% at 65c.

If I use an auto fan on my setup the cards will sometimes under a full load go up to 93c (which again is normal and confirmed by EVGA). These cards are safe up to about 99c, after that they will downclock to prevent damage.

But yes for lower temps just set up a custom 1:1 fan profile in afterburner, this should put your temps down to around 75c with 75% fan speed.

Drives me insane how people with non-reference cards claim reference cards are too hot for their liking.... no duh they run warmer they are REFERENCE! A DCUII will run cooler than an EVGA gtx 580 because of the larger heatsink and the 2 larger fans. Those of us using a reference card have a vapor cooler chamber that is a small heatsink that has a smal fan blowing air through it.

The reference cards have it set up in their bios to ramp the fans up to a certain extent at a certain temp. If 90c was too hot then your GPU would be maxing out the fan at 85% (100% if you have the fan unlocker update). They would not release a card that would overheat and only use 70% fan speed.

here is a thread on temps I posted earlier showing some different temps I had got with my system.
