Asus GTX 560 TI Temp

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So Ive noticed over the last month that my #1 card in my SLI setup has been acting a bit off. When I took them out to clean them one of the cards fan was hard to spin. I would flick it and it wouldn't move freely as the other fans would, but when I stuck it back in the computer and booted up it spun just fine. I'm just going out on a limb and staying that fan is not pushing out enough of the residual heat and causing the card to run hot or is there another reason it may be getting that warm. Its usally 78-80F in the house which does make a difference I know, but I just don't see the temps between the two cards being that far apart normal.

Thank you for your help.

If the fan is reluctant to spin thats not a good thing. Are you running reference cards? Make sure your heat sinks and clean and clear and you might want to try setting a little higer RPM fan profile. 92C is getting pretty warm.

Im running 2 of Twin Frozer II edition 560's. Ill take them out and try to clean them again. I was thinking about reapplying thermal paste, but have never done it to a GC before only my CPU. I just cleaned the cards and case of dust about a month ago. I don't know if the fan just needs some type of lubricant or has it just had it?

replacing the TP is easy though removing the heatsink may need a slight more force, they seem to stick more than on a cpu - give it a slight twist. just add a little more since the die is bigger, but you probably realize that. i have never lubricated the fans but from what i have read, getting sewing machine oil is recommended:
http://www.amazon.com/4-oz-Sewing-Machine-Oil/dp/B000H8Q41Y
where or how to oil the fan may be a bit of an adventure; most tuts show removing a sticker to expose the shaft end and applying there, others show drilling a small hole in the "blower style" coolers. i wouldn't know on the TF fans you have. you may find just finding a replacement easier.

i would suggest re-applying the TP and putting the hotter card in the lower slot and seeing how that works.
