GPU to hott - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Do you have a side fan running? And just to make sure how are you confirming your card is indeed in idle? Do you have load monitoring (like in CCC or MSI AB) and it shows 0% load? The reason I ask is because if you overclocked with MSI AB, it always puts whichever card it deems as GPU 2 at 100% load even though you are not using anything graphically intensive. According to some folks in OCN it is due to powerplay not working with MSI AB. So, I would suggest you check that make sure that load is showing 0% in CCC and in MSI AB (or any other software you are using).
TBH, 60c at idle seems awefully high unless your cards are REAL close to each other - like touching each other and there is no side fan.

Check to see if the fan profiles are different. Maybe one card has the fan set to a higher speed.

I use afterburner and CCC to monitor. There temps are at idle. Yes I do have a side fan along with 5 other 120mm case fans. And they have good spacing between them. I've tried switching the cards and no difference in temps, it's just that the powercooler runs hotter. Could it be from that backplate on the card? +reps for yall too!

Also that's with the fan at 72%

remove the cooler card. if the card alone still idles at 60 degrees then it's just a hotter card. reapplying the TIM will be the only fix

Just got done removing the stock cooler from the Power Cooler card. They did such a crappy job applying the thermal compound and they used horrible compound at that. The chip wasn't even covered... So I went ahead and cleaned it good and applied Artic Silver to the gpu and fired it up and switched the cards around and it is already 10c cooler. So now the top card (powercooler) is idling at 50c and the bottom (XFX) card is at 40c. Hopefully after the thermal compound sets for a while the temps will drop even less. Thanks for all the quick responses, gave you all +reps

My card idles at 60°C with ambient temperature at 24°C...

It goes to 75°C on load.

If his sig is right, he's running at eyefinity, which runs higher clocks constantly, keeping the cards hot. That's one of the reasons I bothered turning off and disabling my crossfire when not playing games that take advantage of it. It heated my room up as well. Crossfire gaming always heats my room up an incredible amount between the two video cards and the 3 hot LCD monitors...

If your idle is that high normally without crossfire (Don't see it in your sig) then you should RMA it or fix it yourself, though it does void Sapphire's warranty.
