In need of dire help.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so I've recently constructed a new computer and I've had nothing but problems with it thus far.. :/ Ever since day 1 I've been having reboots and random crashes. At first I believed to be a defect hard but I was proved wrong. Anyway I'm not gona bore you with all the countless crap I could think off when I tried to find out my problem but in the end it was a simple as this. I downloaded MSI afterburner to monitor my graphic cards, now here's the thing, I have 2 graphic cards in SLI and one of them always tend to overheat while the other doesn't. Now I've removed the SLI bridge and put them in individually one by one to see which one it is that overheats and which one doesn't. So one of them "works" while one of them doesn't.

The one that doesn't "work" easily ramp up to about 90-95 degrees about 5minutes in a game whereas the other one stay stable on 65/70 degrees in for example Battlefield 3 everything on ultra and maxed out. Now I've read countless forums on overheating problems and read alot of fixes and little things that can be the problem like cleaning out the case, checking dust on graphic cards etc. My cable management is just fine and there's nothing in the way to block airflow but now that really isn't the problem since one of them simply overheats while the other doesn't. My case is a Fractal design arc mid tower case.

Now guys on overclock forum, I humbly ask your assistance for I lack in the much needed knowledge as to what the god damn problem is here... ;X

I do so apoligize for what I guess would be horrible english in this post as I wrote this in frustration and english is not my native languange. Thanks in advance. smile.gif

Sounds like you have an deffective GPU, test them both on their own and if you get the same issues then simply RMA the culprit.

Have you set a custom fan profile in MSI Afterburner for your cards? If you're running Fermi cards they tend to run on the hot side. However, 90c+ seems hot even for Fermi.

As Xman2007 said, RMA the defective card.

If your RMA gets declined for any reason try reapplying the TIM. My 560 ti was hitting mid 80's before I applied fresh TIM. The Temps dropped to ~75-80C afterwards.
