Overheating problem with 2x GTX 460 SE in SLI - Page 2

post #11 of 14
much appriciated. This way we can either blame the bad air flow or root that out of the equation depending on your case and fan setup

4 pictures here. On the "inside-up" one, on the left side, there's a spot where a vent is missing. (its cable got cut and I've yet to place it back there). 2 vents that can't be seen in the pictures are in the front.

I didn't dare to overclock anything inside my system. I've yet to have it run fine as it is.

Edit: Playing around with Witcher 2 now. Side case open + SLI. Artifacts appeared after 1 minute with card vents left on manual.
I've set the vents to 100% after that, and its still going strong for 7 minutes now. GPU2 is ~80 degrees while GPU1 is ~50 degrees.

Edit2: artifacts began after 21 minute with vents set to max, lid open. GPU2 temp = 91 / GPU1 = 63, it crashed shortly after

Not enough air flow through the bottom of the case? Looks like there's no intake (except for maybe a front fan) for the bottom GPU.
