Can you upload a pic of your card spacing OP? I know the 580 DCU2s are 3 slot cards. Are they sandwiched together?
It sounds like either the 2nd card's cooler is making poor contact with the GPU, or it's being suffocated due to the spacing/airflow of your case.
spot on, the op did say that the 2nd card is running at 98 not the 1st
, which is very odd...could op confirm you didn't mean the other way round?
op's mobo has 3 slot spacing between the pcie lanes, so the cards would be right on top of each other...
and i thought 97'c
was the thermal limit for the 580s...
best way to find out if your hot running card is faulty is to switch the 2 cards around, and see if temps differ according to locationEdited by erik257 - 7/18/11 at 1:28am
