I can't tell, but is that a HAF X? If so what kind of temps do you see on the 690?

Looking at the Owner's Club, EVGA has made a killing on the 690. I assume that extends to the entire 600 line as well.

I agree with Arizonian, I myself have a Cooler Master HAF-X and intake on the front with the 1 x 230MM Fan and side 200MM Fan and exhaust out the back(1 x 120MM Fan)/top(1 x 200MM Fan), would you ever consider physical mods to the case to suit your needs, I used to have an Antec 900 case before and did physical mods to that which helped(quite time consuming though).

Can't bring myself to cut up my case, the GPUs stay under 70 when I'm gaming so it's not THAT big of a problem.

If you're running multi-gpu and PhysX is set to run on say the 2nd gpu, does the 2nd gpu render frames as well as run PhysX? Haven't actually used it since I switched to nvidia, BL2 will probably be the first I play

It uses GPU #1 for PhysX.

So in your case GPU 1 doesn't contribute to rendering frames in PhysX games? Or is the rendering load split but GPU 1 also has Physx added on top of its workload?

I'm not sure. When I ran a Heaven Benchmark I went from maxed 109.3 after many tries and with same over clock on GPU and CPU switched and I got 109.6 score. I've not tested in gaming which I will give a try right now and see if I see any difference. This is my first dual GPU so I'm not sure if GPU #2 is working as GPU #1 if the monitor is connected to it.

Let me see what kind of specs I get and will report back.

So what your thinking is even though I have the monitor hooked to GPU #2 - GPU #1 is still my main GPU regardless?

I'm just not sure how the drivers distribute workloads in SLI when physx comes into play.

I'm guessing if you hooked you monitor up to GPU #2 that its probably the master gpu. So in a normal scenario GPU #2 would push out pixels say every even frame and GPU #1 would take every odd frame... but with Physx you've assigned your slave GPU (#1) to handle PhysX calcs. I'm wondering if that means GPU #1 still helps push out pixels with GPU #2 while bearing the extra load of PhysX, or if it just sits there doing PhysX stuff like the master GPU does the rendering.

Great points.

I just tested Crysis 2 with GPU#2 and GPU#1 hooked to main monitor and it did not effect gaming at all either way with increase in FPS or decrease. Nor did it make any difference to video quality or made it worse. Both GPU's had same boost going on and I saw no gains by switching.

Since both GPU's on a dual card are in PCIe slot #1 I assumed I could designate which GPU to work as main. Being my first dual GPU and GPU#2 having better Kepler Boost I thought it would be worth a try. No way to really confirm this. I digress because technically both GPU's are only as good as the lesser of the two.

I'm switching back to GPU#1 and call it a night.

@dboythagr8

It is indeed a HAF X 942.

During normal game play (Metro 2033,BF3, Crysis 2,Max Payne), Normally never goes above 75 Degrees, couple of days ago I did a long 4-5 hour gaming session on Max Payne and it never went above 75, however when my room gets hot(im in a loft), I've seen it reach a peak of 80 Degrees. I'm a stickler for quietness, I have my PC on 24/7 so I want it as quite as possible and as powerful, currently it is extremely quiet so I think I got a fairly good ratio of temps/noise, though a fully WC system would be what I want I'd need to study a lot regarding what part's I need and would need more time.

I always want to improve the airflow in the case but not really sure what else I can do, I didn't want to get messy and cable tie fans etc to odd places as I used to do that and didn't like it.

regarding the way the Driver split's the workload when PhysX is on, I'd say that in the nVidia Control Panel if it says GPU B is doing PhysX then it must be rendering frames and doing PhysX on top because where you can manually select the option to choose the PhysX processor you have a option to tick "Dedicate to PhysX" which I'd imagine lock's down the selected GPU to PhysX only.

i think i may have asked this before, but i cant remember, so sorry, but any idea which block performs the best? or are they all so similar it would only be differences in the 1-3 C range? like this:

503

and stateless, you were saying you had great temps with your koolance block. how much raddage you running?
