Top card in crossfire a bit warm. - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the replies everyone. I'll just blast up the fan speed on the top card since these cards are rather quiet anyways.

Install a fan between cards, a fan pulling air from the back of the hotter card, a venting system for a 120MM to help the top card exhaust and a 120MM over the top card. This will take away at least 15C easily depending on the speed of the fans. The exhaust will help a lot more than you think as the fan is all the way at the back of the card it has trouble pushing air the whole 10 inches and getting it out. An exhaust fan for GPUs will help so much.

Thanks I'll give that a try after work tomorrow.

EDIT:

Also just curious, why does the top card in my system read as gpu 2 and the bottom one read as gpu 1?

I glued a little 80MM Delta fan that moves a nice amount of air between the cards, now both of my cards run almost like they we're single cards I suggest this.
