Is it worth it?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I own a 660 ti and have a 560 ti aswell for dedicated physx is it worth using with my 660 ti, I say this cause is it restricting air flow to my 660 ti ?

Well what are your onload temps of both cards??

And restricting airflow... you don't need to put them together, you can use slots 1 and 3 and leave 2, that'll leave lots of room for air.

My 660ti is in the 55-60 range on very hot days but when I crank the fans up 55-60% it's mid 50s usually it's around 40s on cool average day idle it can be 29 to 30s on cool days

Bench it with the 560ti and then without. Make sure you use a bench that'll use the 560 ti though, having it sit there with no load would defeat the purpose.
If your temps aren't any different I'd say use it, better than having it collect dust. If it significantly increases temps, it might not be worth it. Or you might just need to adjust your airflow and add a fan or two.

Aren't the 660 ti,s meant to run 60 load usually when I crank fans it's mid 50s once I saw it 67C on a very hot day is that in the danger zone

If that's the case then your temps are fine, if you were hitting 80c then I'd be a little more concerned.
