GTX470 100C in game! NEED HELP!

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Running two gtx470's in SLI and when i play BC2 and other games my Gpu's heat up to like 99+ degrees. I have the cars separated by one slot on my asus Rampage formula. Case is a haf x with stock fan set up. i had to drop OC back to stock. Wondering if its just a high OC or the fans just don't get air to cards.

What was the overclock at the time? Do you have a fan profile setup? The cards run hot without an overclock, add in an overclock + close proximity and it can certainly get very hot.

These cards are known to run extremely hot... mine does the same thing averages about 80C+ in games.

My overclock goal was 745 on the core and 1490 on the shader with 1087 volt. it would run fine in most games but would get uper 80's low 90's Now i just hit defualt running 1000 volt and 700 on the core.

It all depends on the clocks.

You could replace the TIM, it seems to help people.

Wouldn't bother with changing the tim, if it does help it's typically not by much, and often it either doesn't or makes things worse. Not worth the risk IMO.

Water cooling is the solution you are looking for.

Water cooling is not cheap, its going to cost at least $400 with full cover blocks.
