[Official] Cooler Master HAF-XB Club! - Page 762

post #7611 of 10491
I have the clear top on my build right now but I am going to put the mesh back on. I plan on adding two 80mm fans right over the top of my gpu's to help cool the 1st card. I would put them in the water loop but no one makes a block for my cards.

How hot do those cards get? I'm going to have 2 of the same in my xb in a couple weeks. Right now the one I have runs 64c max. May be a little higher now that I have the h220 installed.

Im thinking max 70c for the 'top' card? Not enough to make me want to put a fan on top though...

660s don't get all that hot, not hot enough to benefit from water cooling...

No no, this isnt a water cooling question. Misbehaven wanted to put 80mm fans above the cards to help cool them. I asked him how hot do they get, as I know my one 660 caps at 64 degrees. I figure a second one won't push the top card passed 70 in sli. Nothing to warrant the need for extra fans mounted above.

Under stress testing with a gap between them neither of my cards get over 60* in SLI and that is the single fan EVGA GTX 660 SuperClocked. The dual fan cards should run even cooler.

Thats nice and cool. I never have my 660 fans more than 40% speed, so im not sure what the best it can do is, but its running at 1240mhz.

I downloaded the EVGA Precision X program so I can play with both cards settings and tweaked the fan speed calibration so that its peaks the fans out at 74% any time the gpu gets over 50*. I tried unlocking the cards to get rid of that fan speed cap and to be able to push the voltage a bit, but I never could get it to work. Not that its REALLY needed anyways. rolleyes.gif

My 660's sometimes hit 70, but they normally stay in the mid 60s
