Radeib 6970 Crossfire Temp Difference / Normal temp

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My first question is this:

Whats normal temps for gaming? Im getting 70C maximum with fan on auto. Whats a dangerous level?


Second: How come my crossfired gpus have lots of temp difference?

Right now my Main gpu is at 59, while secondary is at 39. Is this bad?

Lots of people will tell you lots of different answers, however, being an owner of an SLI system, where the cards are spaced very close to one another, my personal opinion is that tempatures of over 90*C are where you should get worried. So, as long as your cards are not getting over 90* you should be ok. In reality, the cards are designed to run at tempatures of up to 100*C before they shut down to prevent damage.

To answer your second question: Yes, its perfectly normal to have big tempature differences. If your two cards are right next to each other, one is going to get alot more airflow then the other one, resulting in high temps for one and lower ones for the other. For examply, when I'm gaming, my bottom card (the one that is cut off from lots of air) gets to about 80*C, while my top one stays at around 70*C.
