GTX 480s sli overheating in BF3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I seem to be having a problem with BF3 using sli, in sli one of my cards hit 104c while the other hit 93c, this is after I installed the BF3 nvidia drivers. My cards never reach past 85c in afterburner normally even during the hottest days in the UK which isn't very hot. Never had this problem before playing Metro, Crysis 2 nothing scorches my cards like BF3!! After sli is disabled card sits at 83c.
Anyone else having this problem?

Turn up your fans then.

Turn up your fans or you could downclock if you have the 480's overclocked at all. You could definitely try fixing up case airflow as that is most often the main cause but at the moment, BF3 is quite a taxing gaming.

I don't think its airflow, I have 3 deltas pushing out the top of the case and 2 5000rpm gentle typhoons pushing air in attached to fan controller, I usually have them nearly silent most of the time, I had everything turned up (sounded like jet engines...lol) hardly any difference. I'm going to change the drivers back to the current standard nvidia drivers see if that fixes the issue. Cards aren't overclocked yet.
