That puts the H100i fans closer to the GPU and now it tends to run sub-50c. Even getting low 40's if I leave it sitting for a while. It's at 46c right now. Still cooling down from some gaming I did on it.
I still have my G10/H90 in my closet. Thought about putting them back on but really think I'll just stick to the stock cooler. Got to say that the stock MSI cooler looks beautiful in this case.


Switching back out that D15 for H100i resolved the heat build up I was dealing with.


At some point you have to ask yourself: what do I want? - personaly for me its Fuction > Look.

i want my performance to be at the best, and then worry about the looks. in the end, its only myself looking at my case anyway if at all. I use my pc for gaming, rendering, movies etc.
i look more at my screen than my case smile.gif

Hi guys,

I just got an SLI of those cards ; work pretty awsome but I'm a bit desapointed that, at stock, the temperatures always reach 83°C and then induce a GPU throttling to 1152Mhz instead of the original 1340Mhz... I'm not sure this is a normal fact that those cards gets so hot : I read on internet there were pretty cool...

I have a Silent base 800 with 2 front 140mm fans, on 120mm fan on rear, and a WC that extract air from the case on by the top. Even with all my fans at 100% (case and GC fans !), I never managed to stay at stock frequencies, it always go down to 1152Mhz or 1170MHz as the temperatures are too high and hit 83 °C... And if I use "normal" fan speed (~60% for instance), this is getting worse as you can imagine, and as the throttle cannot get lower than 1139MHz, then the temperature can even get higher than 85° ; that's rather ennoying...

I'm wondering if those cards are ok, if they are not over voltaged or something... what can I do to test if this is normal or not ? Maybe I can do something (undervoltage, is it difficult, risky ?).


Many thanks !

Dude, I sli'ed aftermarket GTX 780 Asus DCUii and the things made my computer like an oven in an Air 540.
Your temps are normal for sli'ing non-reference 250w gpu's.

Basically there's a few things you want if sli'ing on air.

1. Reference gpu's. Blower style that push the hot air out of the case. (at least the bottom GPU)

2. Large side intake fan.

If you have a box fan you can test out putting it on the side of your computer with the cover off. See if that stops the GPU's from getting so hot and throttling. From there you might want to look into a case with a large side fan. One of those cases with a 200mm side fan should help.

Could look into going dual "AIO" coolers on your cards if they'll fit.

True water cooling would be the better option.


Undervolting won't hurt the GPU's since you're giving them less voltage.


From my personal experience sli'ing those 780's I'll say I wouldn't do sli without water cooling.

Thanks for those explanations bro biggrin.gif I bought those two custom because it was an aswsome deal (two MSI 980 Ti for... 740€...)

I will try a side fan, but not sure I can : even if it is possible on the Silent Base 800, if I'm not wrong I already had problems with side fan try, because the GC power supply are touching the case, and then the fan if I put a fan :-/

I guess the only solutions are
- BIOS editing for undervoltage : I never did that, so not sure this is a good idea, this is getting very technical, more than undervolt a CPU... but is was so efficient with my CPU, I guess this would also be efficient with GPU...

2) to accept the throttle ; I'm ok with that, this SLI is enougth powerfull, but I'm affraid about the 83-84°, sometimes 86° if I put ventilation to 75° insteand of 80° (less noisy :-/ ), what about the lifetime of the GC at such a temperature, dunno...

What type of fans are you running for intake? Having positive air pressure helps slightly (more intake than exhaust). I recently swapped out the two GP-140 in my R5 for two old D12SH I had lying around and my 980ti runs a lot cooler. It's only a temporary solution though since the damn things are so noisy at full blast, can't wait to put the thing under water.

I pulled the D15 cooler. I replaced it with my old H100i. I set the H100i up as a front intake. I moved the two GP-140's from front intakes to top exhaust. Fixed the temp issues I was suffering from. The system is louder like this, but, not as loud as it was when I was still in my Air 540. Pretty happy with the setup as is.

The only issue with it setup like this is the hdd bay can't be fully secured to the base. I put a tray liner under it, screwed in the left side, and zip-tied it down. The hdd bay also made some contact with the h100i fans. I put padding between that as well.

I only use Silent Wings 2 fans, two 140mm at the front are intake, one 120mm at the rear for exhaust, and one 120, the WC of my processor, which exhaust too.

The noise is a real issue for me, I would never put noisy fans, I would rather let the temperatures at 86°C...

By the way, is such a temperature (86°) a problem for a 980 Ti ? I knkow that the limit given by NVIDIA is 93°, so this is not so far away... However, I remember my 290 was running at 92° or 94°... is the GM200 less resistant at temperature than AMD's chipsets ?

I just grabed a 980ti msi gaming for my gaming rig.
The card is a beast, but im dissapointed by the card temperatures.
I play wither 3, and i am using a custom fan profile from msi afterburner and the temps reach up to ~80C with a fan speed near to 90% after 1 hour of gaming....

That is a little dissapointing, i must play with the fan speed at ~90% and temps are around ~80c..

I read at this topic that some people never hit above 75c with auto fan (around ~60% fan speed), this is imposible for my card..I must run the fan speed at 100% to keep tempretures at 75c after 1-2 hours of gaming..

My previous card was a msi gaming 980 and the temps never went higher than 72-73c with 80% fan speed..
The 980ti is way hotter than that..I wonder if my card is faulty after reading this topic..

The 980 and 980TI use the exact same cooler, and since the 980TI is much stronger, it gets much hotter. Quite simple actually.

Its normal... Before i put my card under water (Kraken X61 + G10), it reached 84C when overclocked. Now it never hits more than 49

You are not alone mate, and your card is NOT defect.

when i used the standard cooler (Twin Frozer 5) i hit 75-82c in Far Cry 4 with arround 78% fanspeed at 1342-1400 clock speeds, with nothing added other than the light oc.

i then bought and used Kraken G10 with a H90 corsair AIO cooler. My card was now idling 28c and max i have seen was 58c on max load, with fan rpm at arround 700ish. My ambient was arround 22-24c.

I then took the leap last night to go full custom!!! (im proud of myself) and increased oc to 1500mhz + 200 on the ram, and my GPU temps are now idling arround the same, but i also replaced CLU with Grizzly Hydronaut TIM. but my load temps never exceeds (havent seen it yet) 43c with fans spinning arround 500-600ish rpm.

and Oh boy is my system quiet and cool... if i wasent such a sissy, i should have taken this path to custom water cooling years ago!
