where does it show vrm temps?

AIDA 64 has always shown VRM temps, that's why I've got it going in my sidebar. biggrin.gif

Hi All,

So I just picked up an open box sapphire 7970 OC from newegg and I noticed that it is supposed to take up more than 2 slots. Since my plan was to crossfire pretty soon here, I was wondering if putting a reference card in the top slot and putting the sapphire in the bottom will work. My board is an evga x58 SLI.

Assuming this will work, do I lose any performance switching brands? Is there a particular reference card that is best? (I assume they are all the same though) Or maybe some other non-reference card that will work with the sapphire.

Let me know what you guys think, thanks.

I ve got no personal experience from the specific card, but perhaps you should also consider the fact that the top card in crossfire gets a lot hotter due to the lack of airflow, meaning that if you put the reference card on top will do so much noise that you will loose the benefit of the perhaps quiter other non reference (cooling wise) card.

Well, here's some pics of the insides of the case, the card with cooler & fans (not removed from the PC)
A pic of ambient temps, idle temps and load temps with Heaven 3.0 on max settings.

Managed to get it under control pretty well temp wise even though my PC is far from quiet now. Then again, noise doesn't bother me. I use a headset for gaming or VERY big studio speakers for movies / music so..

I grouped the pictures in a IMGUR album and here's the link.
Pics are too high-res to just spam in here. People will get very slow loading times... tongue.gif
** Pics taken with my SE Xperia Arc w/ Arconium ICS 4.0 ROM **

I'll show the 4 most important pics below [Clickable for high-res].

Pic of idle / load temps [Shown with AIDA64 Extreme edition]:




As you can see it's only drawing about 130 amps and in BF3 this can go as high as 155 amps so VRM's do get up to about 80-85c under BF3.

Pics of the card / case as it is now:

Glad it worked out for you. Now get to overclocking that sucker!

@Imprezzion:
Bwahaha, I love it! You had to cut your HDD cages out too I see? Did that make your case all floppy too? Gosh, my case barely stands up on its own anymore since I cut those out. frown.gif I've decided a case that properly fits what I want (Fractal Arc or Define) is my next upgrade.

I got bored yesterday, so I did that "mod" on my Accelero as well, with two Sunon 125 CFM fans. Works really well. VRM full load (crunching) went from 110-112*C down to around 75-80*C. biggrin.gif That's at 1150 core / 1.175v. At 1200 core, I can now crunch (couldn't before, only game), and it loads at about 112*C on the VRM's with it, before it would hit 125*C almost immediately and crash.

112c is still a bit over my comfortzone for VRM's but k.
About the HDD cage, well, it doesn't affect the cases stability at all. It's still stiff as a rock wierdly enough.

I figured it would fit since the card was ~300mm long with the Accelero and the room is ~304mm.
Only when I tried it it proved to be false hope. The heatpipes got stuck on the HDD cage edge frown.gif It would've fit if not for the darn edge / heatpipes.
Decided to remove the entire cage as I didn't use it at that time. Now I wish I hadn't cause I got too many SSD's. I really needa stop buying secondhand SSD's for almost nothing.. haha
Three are stuck together with tape and shoved in the bottom cage with a single 500GB HDD as a ''lid'' 2 racks above them. Works fine.
On top of that is the 4th SSD, a Agility 3.

Well, since the ambient outside is due to hit ~36c tomorrow I decided to revert to ''stock'' for now. Meaning 1550Mhz VRAM undervolted at 1.55v and 1100Mhz core undervolted at 1.100v.
Core gets up to about 54c and VRM's to about 60-65c in BF3.

Buuut, next week holds ambients of just over 20c so finally normal temps again plus the fact I am recieving a 5.2Ghz 250k monday or tuesday means i'm leaving my GPU as it is for now..
I wanna see if that beastly Phanteks can do 5.2Ghz on that previously watercooled baby without breaking 80c in Prime 95 / LinX AVX smile.gif
