Since i wont go under water i am just worried that when I go SLI i might see 85 degrees on the GPU. I wonder if it would cause any problems.

If your case is the 800D, then yes its a poor air cooling case. Even with the front fan blowing into the case you still hitting 75 degrees? I still don't think this will be an issue. Max is like 3-5 degrees more on your top card. Your bottom card will be always hovering around 60-65 degrees. Even at 80 degrees no damage are made to your cards. Your computer will shut off before any damage will be made. If that the case, then look into another case. Or grab a diff. model 670 with a better cooler and then put the new one on the top.

yeah I am using your fan profile now. I cant say anything for sure before testing it more but maybe there is a chance that the temps got 1-2 degrees lower.

 

Also my current 670 hits 1215mhz.

I actually dont have a front fan.

 

2 bottom fans that as intake

3 top fans as intake

1 rear fan as an exhaust tahts my setup.

 

To be honest in BF3 i usually sit around 72 max but in some ther games i saw my GPU hitting 75 degrees. Also be warned that my room is HOT. Nothinc much I can do about it. The ambient temperature is not the most ideal.

I just updated my Just Cause 2 screenshots list with a batch of new Screenshots.

 

If you have the moment take a look at Batch 2 which I just uploaded

 

Half Life 2 Screenshots are next.

Like I said to iARDAs, 75 Celsius is nothing for these cards. They have a maximum operating temperature of 97 Celsius. Granted, it is kind of scary to think about them getting that hot, but 75-80 is no reason to say someone should go grab a different model 670 or buy a completely different case.
Also be careful about assuming and relying on your computer to shutdown if the card starts to overheat, I've killed a 570 thinking that. redface.gif

My cards boost to 1290MHz. The top card does run about 10 degrees hotter than the bottom card under full load, but even so, because of the fan profile the hottest it gets is 77-78 Celsius.

EDIT: For reference, ambient is around 28 Celsius. (Yea I know pretty hot, but with my main rig going and the folder cranking away, it gets hot fast)

Why not get an air conditioner? Anything above 25c is just uncomfortable to me if i'm planning on gaming. can't enjoy sitting in a hot room, it ruins the whole experience when i'm trying to feel relieved

I really need to go to a store where they have 1440p right next to 1080p with the same image, aswell as 1080p IPS displays or 120HZ 1080P displays so I can see which I like the best. But id be lucky if I saw any of those side by side in a store lol.

LOL, I live in Charleston, SC, of course we have an air conditioner. But even with the thermostat set to 76 Fahrenheit which is in the living room, if the bedroom door is closed the heat doesn't escape and trip the thermostat to turn the AC on. I normally don't let it get that warm. Like I said, it gets that hot if I keep the door closed, but usually the door stays open and it doesn't heat up as much.
post #939 of 6172
both of mine never get hotter than 67c because of the fan profile I have set. Ambient is about 76F-77F.

Something about the 6series cards that they need to be below 70c or they start downclocking themselves to lose heat.
post #940 of 6172
I'm a bit further south from you Mike in Georgia and I have to keep the thermostat at 75F to stay comfortable. The downside to this plus four computers on all the time is a $367 power bill last month... redface.gif
