Gigabyte GTX 780 OC Windforce 3x SLI = High IDLE temps - Question about my PCIe Slots

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello!

Today I've received my 2x 780. I noticed my idle temps are on first card with 2 screens around 65 oC with OPEN case.

I think the problem is that the cards are almost touching eachother because I'm using the 2 first PCie slots (its tight *cough*). If i put my cards on first and third PCie slot, will it a affect the speed of them? I mean if both will run at x16?

My MB is http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P6X58D_Premium/#specifications

Thanks for advices!

The 2nd and 3rd PCIE slots are the same x8 speed so no you won't lose any bandwidth. If you have enough slots in your case you should definitely consider moving the 2nd GPU to the bottom most, it should help your temps quite a bit.

*edit* Your 2nd GPU is currently at x16 bandwith, but there shouldn't be any real drop in speed moving down to a x8 and will definitely help with temps which should give you higher boost values = higher fps

It's hard to get it there. The fans of GTXs will be touching cables and almost PSU as well. Running out of ideas :/

You are using two monitors at same time that's the problem.
