Need Cooling help please

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I recently built a new gaming pc, but I'm having a problem with my graphics cards making lines on the screen due to overheating when gaming a long time.
I have a Cooler master Cosmos 2 Case ,Intel i7 3770K 3.9Ghz overclocked to 4.6Ghz. Corsair iH80 water cooler for my CPU (runs at about 50-67 degrees). 2 Sapphire Radion 6gb vapor x graphics cards. Corsair sp120 performance fans all round and Corsair Dominator platinum 32gb 2400Mhz ram.

I have the 3 top fans extracting 1x 200mm fan as an intake. 2 Side mounted intake fans for the Graphics cards and 1 fan mounted inside the case blowing cool air over the graphics cards and the Corsair iH80 mounted at the back of the case as an intake.

I have been looking into water-cooling but I can't find a water-block for my graphics cards. My graphics cards are not overclocked and under-clocking them does little to help.
They run at 70-75 ( in extreme cases up to 85 degrees) degrees and everything inside the case is suffering because of this, it feels like an oven.
Please help me find a solution to cool down my system as I would like to add another graphics card for tri screen setup ( I know one card can run 5 screens but I'm a fps junkie and want max resolution and ultra quality).

are you overclocking the cards? Who made them? (ati/nvidia) What series are they? mere branding doesn;t help a lot/

They are not overclocked. They are ATI Sapphire Radion 7970 6gb vapor x cards. Sorry for that.biggrin.gif
