Asus GTX580 SLI: very hot load temps

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Good evening everyone. In my system I have 2 Asus GTX580s running in sli. Under sustained loads I have recorded temperatures up to 98C (for the second card, the first card runs at 78C). I have not however experienced any problems while gaming. Is this a problem with the card, the cooling, or perhaps the way I installed it? Thank you in advance for your responses.

That's perfectly normal for air cooling,

The only thing I could recommend is getting aftermarket coolers for them or going with a watercooling loop for your GPU's.

In a dual card setup it is common that the temps on the first card are bad, coz of the reduction of airflow. You can go aftermarket or watercooling to improve the temps

Also heat rises, so the heat from the bottom card will be going into the top card.

Thank you for your responses! Do you have any water cooling setups you could recommend?

What do you expect when your 580s are hugging each other?This would be your mistake for choosing a pair of tri slot 580 & a mobo that does not have appropriate pcie x16 layout,this mobo below would be appropriate for your 580s layout

That doesn't sound normal to me. He's said his second card is hitting 98c (isn't that almost at the thermal limit for 580s?) with a DCU2 cooler.

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.

Nah, the thermal limit for the 580's is around 105c - 110c

Tbh, I would personally go with something like a 240mm rad, the black ice xtreme 240 is pretty much the best 240mm rad on the market, I think this might be overkill though.

I'd have a look at the black ice xtreme lite along with 2 EK 580 water blocks with an SLi bridge. That'll keep both cards around 70c max on load.

Also, he's got a storm sniper, it's got epic airflow.

This, I have two 580's in SLI that are virtually right on top of each other and I have yet to see them go above 72c when gaming. That second card *should* be running 4-7 degrees cooler than than the first one. I would check to see if the HSF is making proper contact with the GPU.

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 location
