I have a MSI GTX 680 SLI temp question for you all.
Recently I play crysis 3 the first card went incredibly hot.
my case and fan setup is like this (not my photo, borrow it somewhere on internet)
front intake fan : 2 Gelid Wing 12 @ 1200rpm
back intake fan 2 Gelid Wing 12 PL @ PWM push-pull with Corsair H70 radiator.
Top Exhaust fan 2 Gelid Wing 14 @ 1080 rpm
2 MSI GTX 680 Lightning with stock fans (custom profile in AB)
Room temperature around 17 degree Celsius
When I play Crysis 3, around 30mins to 1 hour.
The first card temp went up to maximum 71-73 degree Celsius @ 85% fan speed.
While the second card absolutely highest at around 55-57 degree Celsius @ MAX 50-55% fan speed.
WOW I know SLI setup usually with hotter primary card.
But the temp difference great like this? Is this normal?
I mean. the first went up to 73 degrees
the second only has 57 max temp.
16 degrees difference.
And it was 85% fan speed VS 55% fan speed.
Do you guys have any suggestion that I can improve this temps?
I checked the AB logs, both card are running MAX 99% GPU usage, so not caused by second card low GPU usage.
Also I close my chassis side board. not using side board is not an option though.
