SLI Loop Problem?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a single loop with my 2500k, and two 580s. Recently I have noticed my 2nd GPU in the loop has been running 6C hotter at idle and load. If it was only 1-2C I would not worry but, 6C seems like a big difference, even if the 2nd GPU in a loop normally runs a bit hotter. Also when when I first put my loop together my GPU's never got more then 1-2C in difference and were the same Temp most of the time. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Possible clog in the second block? How long have you had your loop, what do you run for coolant, and what maintenance have you done?

Its just plan distilled water with a silver kill coil, made sure all the waterblocks and the rad didn't have any sort of conflicting metal ether. The loop it self is about six months old have not replaced any of the tubing yet just changed the water a few times. When running benchmarks and games my computer runs flawless, its just the temperature difference that worries me.
