The fans were at like 55% when I checked NVIDIA tools.

Is this an ok heat level for long term gameplay?
I was curious to know if your running your software for manual settings instead of auto?

You should have it manually set and start up at windows start up minimized checked. I use Precision software to control my fans.

I also have flashed my BIOS with EVGA GTX 580 Fanspeed Unlocker v1.1 Released - 1/13/2011

I have one card and my GTX 580 gets about 81C without SLI mode when heavy gaming for a while like Crysis 2 currently. As well as Metro 2033 and older Crysis which is normal.

I also realize when I finally sandwich and SLI my card it will raise temps on the top card I'm gathering another 5C higher on the average. That's very norm temps. Your doing fine and don't need to bother with water cooling unless you really want to.

Good luck and enjoy your cards bud.

My 460 on 100% fan speed will have the downclock during Crysis 2 at times because I exceed. I can only play it if its cool in the house.

Crank that fan speed up!!!

Pretty sure it's 95°c for the 580.

Then you would just "love" my 460! Average gaming temp at 100% fan speed is around 83-98C.

You should have the Precision software to manual setting and set them accordingly.

Click 'setting' set up custom 'Fan Settings' and check the 'Start with Windows Startup' and 'Start Minimized' box on the graph settings area and you'll be good to go without thinking about it again.

There are six points you set up manually on the fan grid. Also make sure on Afterburner default area you have the green button checked with option to 'Apply at Window Startup' checked as well.

I have mine set to these points on the graph. If you double click on the graph it will switch between 'step up' and 'curve'. Use the 'curve' graph.

40C-45%
50C-56%
60C-67%
70C-78%
80C-89%
90C-100%

At 88C your fan should have been pumping at 98% which your temps would have never reached that high in the first place. It really sounds like you don't have it set up properly. I'll let you respond to see where your at. Just thought I'd post this little chart in case you didn't have the maual profile set up for fan settings.

Please post back and let us know.

Ok what software do I need to download? The MSI stuff oorrr?

EDIT: Nevermind, foudn the precision software on EVGA website, downloading now.

Your welcome to use MSI Afterburner if you'd like. It's really the same and I've used it before when I had my MSI AMD 6870's TFII in crossfire for a brief time before jumping ship.

I personally use Precision from EVGA. Click the link and download it.

After it's installed. Check "Apply at Windows Startup" right there on the front of the monitor.

Click the wrench icon to enter the settings area.

On the "General" tab. Check the "Start with Windows" and "Start Minimized" box.

On the "Fan" tab check the "Enable software automatic fan control".

40C-45%
50C-56%
60C-67%
70C-78%
80C-89%
90C-100%


If it should ever to 90% you'd want 100% fan speed. I never get past 81C gaming heavily because the fans are ramping up with temps keeping the temp at bay.

If you double click on the graph anywhere you will notice it switches to 'STEPS' or 'Curve'. You want it on the curve. I've included a screen shot so you can see what it should look like.

You will then notice six boxes. These are points. Drag the first points to the those settings I showed you so the Fan Speed will climb as your Temperatures climb.

I've got seven points. It will show you six points by default. The first one which is at 30C - 35% is not really needed. Start at the 40C - 45% and go from there to the top.

Make sure the 'AUTO' is checked on the front monitor of Precision fan speed. If the 'LINK' is clicked it means both cards are linked to the one software setting you provided.

Every time you start up your computer this will start up and minimized in the task bar out of your way. You won't have to think about it from there on. It's also a great tool to over clock your cards but that's for another thread and honestly you don't really need to. My OC you see on that right now is because I just finished gaming Crysis 2 and I have a profile set up for it. I don't really need it but, why not?

Attachment 212276

Here is an example of my profiles I have set up for the over clocks.

The GTX 580 SC is 3% gain higher than a GTX 580 vanilla by default.

The difference is the SC runs at 4050 MHz (effective) memory and the vanilla at 4008 MHz (effective) memory.

It comes slightly over clocked but that means nothing since the vanilla card can be OC'ed yourself.

39-40C idle @ stock 797Mhz core on SC which is a 3% gain over vanilla stock. Default for SC.

40-42C idle @ 838Mhz core on SC which is 8% gain over vanilla stock. 838/1061/1676

42-43C idle @ 855Mhz core on SC which is 10% gain over vanilla stock. 855/1086/1710

43-44C idle @ 875Mhz core on SC which is 13% gain over vanilla stock. 875/1111/1750

44-45C idle @ 890Mhz core on SC which is 15% gain over vanilla stock. 890/1135/1780

To go higher stable I have to bump my GPU to 1.1000 voltage.

45-46C idle @912Mhz core on SC which is 17% gain over vanilla stock.

Now when I OC I bump up across the board for Core / Memory / Shader to be exactly the same percentage gain on each GPU-Z validation.

Temps for the EVGA reference cards are actually ok if your under 90C. I know that sounds like a lot but it's made for it and the hot air exhaust blows outside your tower out the back air flow bracket instead of dumping into your tower.

Ok I'm done editing. Good luck and post back after your all set and let me know how it went.

Working perfectly now, though dont see a need to OC as Im getting well over 100 FPS in Crysis 2 lol!

Much better then the 25 to 35 I was getting with dual GTX 275s.

Thanks for all the info, I can hear the fans ramping up now.
