MSI GTX 580 Twin Frozer II 98°C !!! - Page 4

post #31 of 47
you need better case air flow for sure......try taking the side panel off and putting a cheap box fan in its place that should help. you will still have a exhaust problem though. So try it blowing air in and sucking air out and see what works better.


You need to fill out your full system specs in your sig so we know what all you are working with.

Pooing on cards with twin high speed fans will be very messy. You know the expression "S**t hit the fan" eek.gif

Thought so. I got the new Artic Siver one Ceramique 2 coming for my CPU, the old paste has dried up.

Yeah, I'm running with the case off, and a hopefully a new 80mm fan to got in the back soon. Although I'm not sure if I can connect it up as the two fan sockets are used. Someone said I could get a molex extension or something. I have seen a YT video of the XPS 420 with a new rear case fan.

Can fans be set to blow air in and extract air out?

ah, should be ok. Maybe they will make one someday to fit everything. memory heatsinks might need fans. I know MSI have released a watercooled version of my graphics card. Maybe they can supply the block.

Memory heatsinks need airflow for effective cooling, yes.
You mean the Hydrogen card? Yea you could throw them an email and ask if they could sell you a block.

That the one.

Any idea if nVidia has released their GPU specifications sheet - the one they would release to all the manufacturers. I need to work out if I exceeded their test measurements for heat. I'm worried if I have already shortened the life of the chip when I was running hot at 98ºC. I heard it might be 105ºC.

EDIT: Not found the design spec sheets but I found out that the Thermal Threshold is 97ºC. So I was going over the limit. It should have automatically down clocked, shouldn't it? Maybe that was when I my PC rebooted itself.

your card will be fine... Honestley tho all of your problems would go away if you got a new case. I understand you dont want a new board but bto BTX.... you buy a 30 case a used board from here and your temps go down 50 degrees vs buying a wb and the rest of your gear (gonna cost around 200) then struggling to put it in that case....

Can't you cut a fanhole on your existing case? The card will be fine @80c, but almost 100 sounds just crazy... It is likely fine though, but that's still concerning.

Good point. an equivalent ATX mobo would be quite cheap now. Mine had quite a few USB slots on the front and back, firewire etc. Memory card reader. I can ditch that useless Sideshow display smile.gif . Although wc is becoming enticing... but for now. My next major upgrade will be when the 8 core cpu's arrive, although 4 core is really mature now, like the i7's.

Grab a cheap fractal design or bitfenix case. THen buy a cheap h67 mobo. Then buy an i3 2120 + 4gb of DDR3, whatever you find. It'll make your card fly, keep it cool, and be cheap.
