Thread Starter 
The top gpu is hitting 101c while the other 2 are maxing at at 64c and 62c I have the storm trooper case by CM the gpu's are gigabytes with windforce coolers I also have 2 sickleflow fans blowing onto the gpu's this is my first high end build and I need help with getting that first gpu temp down an I am not really sure where to start on this.
Any help will be very appreciated. (:

heat rise up, so make sure there's enuff circulation inside the case...I usually, put them on water if more than 2 cards...

1. Manual fan speed bump for top card, and actually all cards.
2. Side panel fan
3. Extra fan in front on the cards maybe
4. Water cooling for 3 cards is the best choice, if possible

Wow, three dual fan coolers together. The delta between the first and other cards is insane. You need a big airy case that has enough airflow to create lift almost to cool that.

The top card fan is set at 100% while its running at 101c unfortunately and i do have a 140mm in there blowing on it too along with 3 others blowing it outta the case at the top, would it be feasible to have just the top card water cooled since the other 2 are doing well on there temps? I cant really afford to drop 3 big ones on just the blocks.. for now devil-smiley-019.gif
