GTX 580 Sli temps question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I use an x58 sabertooth which means that when I put in 2 GTX 580s tgt, they will be located directly next to each other with no slots in between. "kissing". I use a HAF-X with a 200 mm top fan for exhaust, 200 mm side for intake, 230mm front intake, 120mm above I/O and 120mm installed with included GPU shroud sucking air from 230mm front fan and directing it directly at the GPUs.

Room temps will avg around 23-24 degrees Celcius. Do you think there will be a problem with temps. BTW, I plan to get the Palit 3Gb cards with dual fan configs.

GPU1 might get a bit toasty, yes. I know my GTX460s (also Palits, with a single fan) when they were butted right up against one another roasted GPU1.

A lot will depend on whether you're thinking of running Surround - if you are, expect temps to increase anyway, as Surround puts a lot of stress on the GPUs.

I actually plan to run surround hence the 3gb sli. Do you think the temps will reach biblical levels, despite the air flow directed at the GPUs and the Palit custom coolers?

In terms of "Will there be a problem"...

Nvidia rate the GTX580 as capable of withstanding temperatures of 97C

Source: http://uk.geforce.com/hardware/deskt...specifications

In your case I'd estmiate that if your running Furmark your most likely going to be very close or over that figure on the top card.

However, in a real world gaming you should not have an overheating issue per se but stuff like Crysis with 16x AA is going to be pushing the thermals quite hard IMO.

I wouldn't bank on a lot of overclocking headroom, but in terms of "Will it work without dying" Yeah.

Personally, if I was going this route I would consider watercooling 1 or both GPU's. But thats not practical for everyone.

I don't have any experience of the dual-fan coolers used by Palit on the 3GB 580s, but the single fan on the 460s is not great if it can't get cool air. If the case provides good cool airflow to the cards, I would say you shouldn't worry too much.

Furmark doesn't push cards as hard as Surround, as strange as that may sound. I've never seen my 460s break 80*C with Furmark, but with Surround (DiRT2 is singly the worst culprit here) I've seen GPU1 hit 98*C before I did some slot rearrangement to provide better airflow.

With the (vastly) improved cooling system on the 3GB 580s, though, I wouldn't expect the OP to see temps like that.

I'll give you my temps if it gives you any idea.
I game a 2560 x 1440 and i own 580 3GB SLI in a HAF-X. No GPU fan duct and VGA Bracket though.
They are in slot 1 and 3 and running at fan speeds @75% (15-20mins gameplay and ambient is 23c)
Crysis Warhead (2xAA, Extreme, vsync off) - 60c/73c
Crysis 2 (Ultra, DX11, High Res Tex, vsync off) - 59c/72c

I expect your top card to be a little bit hotter but i'm sure the GPU air duct should help.
