2nd 6990 GPU hot. Need to reseat?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am having some trouble with my watercooling system and HD 6990. One GPU seems to be running slightly hot for what it should be (around 8-10 deg hotter than the other GPU).
Under full load, the
1st runs @ 57-60
2nd runs @ 68-70

I understand some thermal difference is normal, but 8-10 deg seems a little excessive. Should I take apart the system and reseat the waterblock?
The waterblock I am using is EK brand: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...kelAcetal.html

Thanks for your input!

I wouldnt, I mean think about it. The water by the time it hits the 4th gpu, isnt going to have the cooling capacity that it had when it hit the first gpu, IMO those temps look 100% normal.

You said you have 2 right? What does the first one run? Also disable crossfire, hook up your monitor to the 2nd card, and stress that card it self. Try your best to isolate that card. 70c is pretty damn hot even for water.
