Ideas for cooling off Twin Frozr II/OC 560Tis in SLI

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The clearance between the cards is 1 slot.
I rigged the stock AMD heat sink fan since it was lying around in the middle of both the cards, its some help, but I'd like more ideas, since this one is noisy and my whole workplace tends to vibrate under the monstrous 7000rpm of this fan, not to mention the noise.

A 90CFM (2000RPM 120mm Fan) is blowing air to both of them on the side, and an 82CFM (1800RPM 120mm Fan) is blowing air to them from the front, a 44CFM (1200RPM 120mm Fan) is blowing air to the lower one from the bottom.

I was wondering if I should install a fan to act as an exhaust for this area, one that throws it upwards for the top fans at the top of the case to throw them out?
Speaking of which I have many 80mm Fans lying around, though they aren't top of the line.

My temps hit 81c when playing Crysis 2/Metro 2033/Battlefield 3 on the top GPU and 67c is the max for the lower one, and I definitely would want to change that. The ambient here right now is 35c and the summers bring a 41-45c easily.

I can't afford a waterblock cooling solution just yet due to budget concerns at the moment.

The least I can do is simply hook another AMD fan in between them, since it has monstrous RPM it throws a significant amount of air, though two such fans inside would most certainly drive me insane.

Dude, its normal for sli to hit 81c temps. Dont worry about it. My temps are much higher than you at 98c..Then it is called too high. So end up i change to the Artic Acclero Xtreme Plus ll. Load temp did not go up to 80c anymore.
