GTX295 GPU2 hits 105C&GPU1 hits 57, need help to lower the temp

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm using dual monitors on gtx295. each monitor has its own resolution. I was playing l4d on one monitor and the GPU2 ran 100%/105C, GPU1 57C. It's weird to me, i thought two GPU will be working at the same time. is there anyway to make the temp lower?
I think I'm using single PCB because the fan in the middle

Is sli enabled?

Does the fan speed increase at that temperature?

I called EVGA, they told me that forget about temperature, as long as it's not crashing constantly, it will be fine. if it crashes constantly or burned, I can RMA it. that sounds weird.

The 295 is two GPUs on one card. SLI needs to be enabled if you want to use the power of both cores. Otherwise it will just use one.

105c is probably the max before it starts to throttle, though when you enable SLI and it uses both cores its only going to get hotter.

Possibly a faulty sensor..

Can you try poking the card during load to seeing if it really is getting that hot?
Or smelling, usually thermal compound is very faint but certainly noticeable above a good 90c.

At least my AS Ceramique is.

I see you have the first raven case. Do you have the Coop version or the sandwich version? If it's the coop version it may make sense in that the bottom GPU has a harder time getting fresh, cooler air.

It could also be sli wasn't enabled and only one core was working. The fact that one gpu gets that hot would just mean it's either clogged, you case has poor cooling, or your ambient temp in the room is too high.

Open the card, clean it as i'm 100% sure the fan and the first heat sink if clogged with dirt, dust, hair and who knows what ! Remove old tim and apply new one, and your card will work as brand new.

thx guys, ill do that. how do i check if my SLI is enable? under NVIDIA>Set Multi-GPU and PhysX configuration>Maximize 3D performance? if i use maximuize 3d performance, it only allows 1 monitor. I need dual :/

could it be that each monitor is using 1 GPU and the monitor that's playing the video game will raise the temp of that particular GPU? It's a theory, but please correct me if i'm wrong.
