Hello from Australia :)

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hey, first post, check out my new rig...

My top graphics card runs 20*C hotter than the bottom, is that normal for SLI?

Hey Nathan, welcome to OCN! In some cases, for crossfire and sli, 10c is about the norm. 20c is a little too hot, but I am not sure since it all depends on case airflow. Ensure you have a proper fan configuration for your rig, and try to cool your GPUs as best as possible. I recommend setting up fan profiles with software such as MSI Afterburner, that will help with temperatures under load.

Thanks for the reply!

I'm using MSI afterburner already actually for my overclocking and have set fans to 100%, still I get the 20 degrees celcius difference.

I think It may have something to do with my fan setup. Maybe they are pointing in the wrong directions or something...

I'll post some pics up in a minute!

Welcome to OCN fellow Australian! biggrin.gif

I shall have a look at the airflow on your rig! biggrin.gif

What cards are you running out of curiosity?

EDIT: I Assume the CPU cooler fans are pointing up?
Just to confirm they're windforce coolers yeah? Put the sidefan as outblowing if so.

Yes, welcome fellow aussie!
If I were you i'd try and remove the cable clutter, as u have alot of HDD's in the way of the intakes, so the cables will further be reducing the airflow to the GPU's.
Also whats the orientation of the side fan?

Yes, thanks Muffin Man, I have been trying to reduce the clutter bit by bit every now and then. The side fan is blowing air towards the graphics cards. All my fans set to 100%
