Those results aren't even close to normal assuming regular ambient temps of ~70F.

I run three sandwiched 580s and temps only hit 90-91C running intensive games across three monitors.

e: Oh, two non-reference cards. That's always a recipe for disastrous temps.

It looks like they killed my challenge post frown.gif

I have an idea for myself when I finally SLI. I already own an EVGA GTX 580 reference card. When I SLI around tax refund time I'm going to get a non-referernce card.

I will place the reference card on the bottom. The hot air exhaust gets blown the rear flow bracket and not dumped on my top card.

The top reference card is open case cooling so it dosen't suffocate from the bottom card blocking the fan blower from getting air being sandwiched together.

I have a feeling this combo will yield lower temps for the top card. If anyone on OCN has this sort of set up please post and let us know if something like this works? It's a theory and I'm curious what kind of difference I'd see.

Just food for thought as most people just SLI the same card twice. Sandwiched two non-reference or reference cards each have thier down sides that causes that top card to be very hot in full throttle.

Any thoughts?

my cards never exceed 85C and the aimbet temps here are about 30-40c (ya summer here is a killer :@ ) and they are reference cards...

something is definitely faulty about your card maybe the cooler isnt sitting right on the core ?... try to take the cooler off exchange thermal paste and contract it again ...

I think this is correct. I will soon be getting a reference EVGA 580 for SLI and I'm going to throw it on the bottom, so we'll see how that goes.

Look at the picture he linked, he's using the triple slot Asus cards and they are literally sitting on top one another. That is the issue.

My plan is to get something back for those Asus cards, and then purchase 2 Evga reference cards. That will give my the 1 slot of space required for proper cooling. On my next day off I'll pick them up, install them, and tell you guys how it goes.

I have two MSI Lightnings , and the max load tems are around 50-55c for the bottom card and 60-65c for the top card. This is in a Corsair 800D, which doesn't exactly have world class airflow. The only possible explanation is that your cards simply don't have any room to intake air due to being triple slot.


Getting those ref EVGA 580s is a great idea, but you can get non-ref cards too, as long as they have room to breathe.
