580 sli temp ? - Page 2

post #11 of 35
Get a fan controller to help quiet them down. Yate loons low speed are inexpensive and quiet.

Two little 'tricks' that might shave off 5C temp from the top card:-

1. Connect the monitor to the bottom card
By doing so, the bottom card becomes the 'master/main' card of the pair. Even under SLI, the main card just does a tiny little bit of work (eg coordinating the 2 cards) which generates a little bit more heat. So, take this little load off from the top card and let the bottom card does it

2. Select the bottom card to be the Physx card
Similar to the trick above, this moves the Physx load to the lower card. And, IIRC, brettjv has a little study that shows this move might even give a slightly higher framerate as well.

And, do you have the P6T or P6T Deluxe V2?
For P6T, there is no gap between the 2 cards but there is still one slot empty for the P6T Deluxe V2.
Before changing the side panel fan from the stock 230mm to 1-4 120mm fans, I suggest you try:
1. adding a 120mm fan behind the HDD cage to direct air into the gap between the 2 cards (pic 1)
2. use an Antec Spot cool fan to do a similar job (pic 2)

Sunbeamtech RheoSmart6 is good fan controller Matches the HAF932 look also with mesh facia. Handles 30watts per channel also.

To paras:
Take a look at the pic below (taken from page 54 of your mobo's User Manual).
When you move the monitor to the lower card, you might want to go into BIOS (Advanced BIOS Features--->Init Display First) and specify that PCIe slot to be the first initiation of monitor display.

Excellent advice! I'll give the "tips" a try tonight. I have the V2 with the gap. The location of your pic is actually exactly where I was asking about in the first post! I was thinking something to help circulate the air being brought in by front intake would be ideal.

Looks like I'll order some fans and maybe a controller- I'll try some difference scenarios and post results when I get them.

Any other suggestions for quiet powerful fan(s) to serve the purpose?

There should be quite a number of quiet fans with good airflow but I would rather suggest one that I have actually had some experience with. So, I recommend Gelid Gamer Wing 12 (which comes in blue or green). The fan impeller can be taken out for cleaning and this is quite handy. It is a little expensive at $20 though.
Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835426018

And it is a good move to use a fan controller so you can adjust the speed manually according to needs.
Remember to remove those HDD racks that are not being used. They obstruct the front incoming airflow a bit.

And post a pic or two of your case interior. I always love to see SLI action inside a HAF932.

I have a couple of questions relating to this thread...

I'm considering getting a second GTX 570 and also have the haf 932 case.

1. Some people have mentioned replacing the stock cm 230mm side fan with 4x120mm fans. Will this make a decent difference in cooling? Also how would you connect them/and to what? (im a fan noob)

2. Or is there any fan that is a direct replacement for the 230mm stock cm side fan that will increase cooling?
