GTX 560 in SLI

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Just wondering what is the noise level of 2 x Asus GTX 560 when idle and when gaming?
When gaming doesn't matter but would need to be bearable when browsing and the like.

I'd say you'd be fine noise wise as i have 4890 xfire (pretty loud cards) but when i'm not doing anything graphics intensive they are pretty quite (quieter than the case fans). I don't have any numbers for you but i would assume that you wouldn't be bothered by the noise at idle.

I wouldn't get regular 560's I hope you would be getting gtx 560 Ti's which are pretty much the best mid range card.

Honestly mine aren't hot at all but thats because i have a side panel fan on my storm scout. Without the side panel fan my top video card would be running at 85-95c in bf3 after 15minutes!!! NOT GOOD.

So I put a side panel fan on my storm scout but this did increase the overall noise, it really drowns out all the other noise in my case though and I need a controller or a different case thats bigger allowing me to use the bottom pci x slot instead of only slot 1 and slot 3 i could use slot 1 and slot 4 for more room to cool them better.

You would need a side panel fan with that case to keep them cool just keep that in mind.

Ok I went for 2 of the Asus Tis but I'm not seeing an SLI bridge as part of the contents. Do I have to buy that separately?
I probably still have one from my GTX 280 but will it work?

If it fits, it works

SLI bridges are usually delivered with your motherboard, not with the VGA cards.

Yes I have found this one below with my mobo but does not say SLI on it.
Does it look like one? Wondering because there is also a 3 Way non flexible one in the box. But connectors look the same so it should be.

I think that one might be a crossfire bridge. SLI ones if I'm not mistaken are black/green.

I have 2x GTX 560 TIs in SLI and they are really quiet and don't make much noise when gaming. Although I have pretty good cooling so it all depends.

The one pictured looks exactly like both of my bridges

Then again, crossfire and sli bridges look nearly identical

They are brown also. I have two that came with my Asrock and it says SLI on them.
