SLI TFII 560-ti's .... SOOO HOT!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
SO i've got a pair of 560-ti twin frozr cards from MSI.
Running the stock OC that they have (880mhz) i am recieving 80c + temps in BF3 on the top card and 75c on lower card.

I do not know much about temp loads on GPU's but this seems a little too much.

I took the side panel off my case last night and laid a POWERFUL fan on the ground aiming at the two cards and ran a furmark test. Furmark ran to 82c then drivers crashed. I've tried to bump up the voltage a bit to see if it would help but I'm getting the same issues.

After that test, i took the TF2 cooler off both cards and re-applied ArticSilver5 TIM. Ran furmark again with fan BLASTING the cards with air (29c ambient in room). Both cards still saw 81c but didnt crash.

So my question now is, do I go find a universal waterblock and put these cards in a loop with the water cooling setup im doing or are these temps ok?

Your temps are fine, you should worry more about cooling your vrms, that is what might be the issue....and cheaper lol

I wouldn't call those temps fine. 80c+ at factory settings is pretty ridiculous for a TF2 card.

OP, do you have a custom fan profile set via MSI Afterburner (or similar software)?

For reference, my cards (which should run warmer than TF2s) haven't ever hit the 80s, and I'm running higher clocks. Even in Crysis 2, which gets toasty pretty quickly.

He is running Furmark, I ran it at stock settings and hit 80C+ myself...I even swapped Thermal paste. He is probably on auto fan profile as you said, I was too when I ran furmark stock. So I say he should look into getting heatsinks for his VRMs why may be throttling due to the heat. It is worth a shot atleast.

I don't care about noise guys, all of my fans run off a custom profile. the GPU ones (running though afterburner 2.2 beta) are set to go 100% at 60c.

I kinda find the humming of all 15 fans in the case therapeutic

The TF2 fans sound very healthy, no squeaks or vibrations... from a physical standpoint everything seems perfect. Thats why im lost.

I did notice when taking apart the card to reapply TIM that the vram and caps didnt have any sort of heatsink... im assuming the fans from the gpu heatsink blow on them a little, but just seems off.
And if i was to get some sort of vrm heatsink, i dont know if there would be enough clearence anyway. Why would msi fail to put these on the cards if they are needed?
