are my temps ok (5850 crossfire) - Page 2

post #11 of 25
That is not normal. I just came out of the exact same setup. 2 5850's. My max temps were 58-62c idle at 34-38c. You should try re-applying the thermal compound to the GPU's and also make sure your case has adequate airflow. With those fans at 100%, you shouldn't even come near those temps. Something is wrong.

well the cards are sandwhiched together so airflow is already impeded

My 5850's are sandwiched together as well.

What brand do you have? Are they reference or non ref design?

What fan are you using for the side intake fan?

I think the people who are saying your temps are fine are missing one important fact...you are hitting those temps at 100% fan speed. That shouldn't be happening.

Sandybridge board pcies are not as close together as 1366 board so air flow poor my 5870 had a few Mil between them i ended up water cooling to reduce temp which after a couple of hours could reach 85+

sorry i can't see the pic ture so if his too is sandybridge feel free to ignore (work proxy blocks it)

What's the spacing between cards? Can we get a pic?

Either way, i bet 2 cards with 100% fan is pretty damn loud.

i just did auto fan speed at stock clocks (725/1000) and the top GPU was starting to hit 90c!!!!

i don't understand why is the fan speed still at 36% when my card is at 88c??

Its not an xfx card by any chance is it? I know my reference xfx card fan profile is crap too. I have to set it to 45% manually in overdrive. Luckily the card is my second card in this set up so i can leave it at 45% and it will only kick in when I run a 3d application. From the bit of googling I've done I'm not sure if its a bios problem or a driver problem. I've read about people trying to edit the bios of their card using RBE to improve the fan profile settings but they dont seem to work when drivers are present. Only thing I can suggest is to manually set the fan speed before entering games. If you find another fix please post it here.
