Ok? Just because you have the same card doesn't mean it will yield the same results. That all I'm saying

I know what you want to say but I did it on two cards not one and saw that the original work was OK and it didn't improve anything.

It depends on application of the original TIM. Sometimes there's simply too much of it. Sometimes TIM is not good and is crumbly and dry (had that happen with a fairly new card). With my Sapphire card, I lapped the copper base a bit and switched to a very even thin layer of MX-4, and temperatures went down dramatically.

I had this happen on my last XFX card. It ran about 10*c hotter as the bottom card in crossfire. I decided that wasn't right, so I took off the cooler and found chunk of TIM plastered all over the GPU and PCB around it. It was dry and crumbly like you describe. And I think the cooler itself was slightly warped, so it didn't make good contact. Once I changed the TIM, I was able to get the temps to match the top card.

I have the same cards as you in CF and I get higher temps in the bottom one too. Have you OC'd? If so what clock voltage and temps? I had mine at 1.15v and 1000 core clock with 1350 memory and my second GPU would hit 85+ and crash. Im having a hard time OC these cards...

The current HIS IceQ doesn't have the issue my XFX card did, which is what I was referencing above.

My temps on the bottom card are around 65*c and the top is about 75*c when running Heaven/Valley for 30 minutes @ 1100mhz on the core. I haven't messed with the voltage. So, I think it's using the boost voltage of 1.25v. I've left the memory clocks stock for now.

I've found that removing the plates on the empty slots (between the cards) helps with heat dissipation, but every case is different. The Arc Midi in my sig has pretty good cooling throughout.

I have a HAF X so i dont think airflow is my problem. Running BF3 with 1075 on core (1100 is instable, increasing volts more than 1.15 gives too high temps), I hit 65 on the top card and 75-80 on the bottom card.

Are you using the side fan on the Haf X? I have the side fan blowing on my cards at the moment.

I ran heaven again for an hour and my temps are holding at 77*c (Top) / 67*c (Bottom) at 1100mhz with voltage is set at 1.168v. I've been logging the VRM temps with GPU-Z and they seem to stay at 25*c - 26*c (stock at 1250mhz).

One thing I did notice though is that one of my fans is starting to rattle a bit during certain times. I think this is a known issue with HIS IceQ series as I've seen it described in consumer and professional reviews. Hoping I don't need to RMA, I really enjoy the performance I'm getting from these cards.

yup, the side fan is blowing in. ill switch em and see what happens

Alright so I switched them and results are pretty interesting. The one that was on the bottom before is now the top one and temps are about 30-35 degrees higher on the top one. Bottom one is working excellently. Top one is the issue now. Should I RMA?
