980ti sli temps seem high - Page 2

post #11 of 24
The Fractal R5 or the S would both be great choices. It typically comes with 3 fans. I would add another 140 mm fan in the bottom blowing right onto the GPUs. If you get one without the side windows, you can even add another fan in the side panel blowing on the GPUs. Put two intakes in the front, 1 bottom intake, 1 side intake, 1 Rear Exhaust and your h100i in the top and you would be all set for not a lot of cash.

Here is the Fractal Define R5 with Dual GPU and a Corsair H100 cpu cooler. The Blue rectangles are intakes. The larger blue square would be the intake in the solid side panel. The Red rectangles are the exhausts.

Here is the Define R5 from Newegg for $89. Toss in two additional 140mm fans and you're are all set for maybe $110 - $115 total. Plus, the R5 is a silent case. So, it will be noticeably quieter than the HAF X.

How fast does the EVGA rise to 88 degrees?

When I built in my EVGA 980ti in a NZXT S340 for testing without ANY fans at all, it would not rise above 80 degrees.

Before buying a new case i would personally first check how fast the Gpu gets warm and then if it almost instantly goes to 88 i would just renew the thermal paste of the card (with EVGA you dont lose warranty if you do this).

Good to check, but an SLI system is a different ball game. Also, if it needs new thermal paste already, something has gone wrong. Worth looking into though.

As I mentioned above, you should not need to reapply the thermal paste. If you did, something must have went wrong or it was not applied correctly during manufacturing. I doubt that happened. Your paste should be just fine and is usually good for several years.

i havent touched the paste on the card nore thought about even doing that. anyways i did not test witcher 3 yet but the random blackscreen happend again though it was only flickering happend about 3 times during a 3+ hour sesh with dolphin emulator. i had afterburner on monitoring . and top card only using about 1024mhz on the base clock .and bottem card spiked to 1k mark but once in game was stuck on 135 mhz temps though were alot better. top card was 39c bottem 34c im guessing its not using sli since bottem card was stuck on that number the hole time during my playthrough..but whats od is i did get the occasional fps spike droping in the 40s. i will test witcher 3 now for a few hours and see how things go.

tested witcher 3 game was running prity good but after about 3 or so hours in the screen went black again staying black untill having to alt tab to get a screen showign the task manager blue screen. going back into the game from alt tabing back in resulted in strange behavior.. the frame rate would stutter but it would appear like the screen is tearing no artifacts or anything and i could not see the monitering counter it seemd to of become inactive in the game. i would have to exit the game and restart it for the fps to go back to normal agian and for the monitering on screen to show again.. ..looking at temps and gpu power on afterburner.. the inno3d being the top card was at max temp of 70c and gpu power on 98 and the evga was on 73c and gpu power on 99. this is alot better then 85-88c ..but why is this black screen happning..ahd whats with the flashing blacksreen..i need some help on this. not sure what to do. :S

cooling in hybrid is much better than regular air because it also uses liquid/water in it's closed loop.

*top card would only be hotter if both cards run on air and second card has fans blowing on it from top card causing push/pull air position, basically doubling the cooling performance.

btw how did the side panel with fan go? did you get lower tempere with that fan? Try in push position first (intake)

for you the best solution would be to:
1) switch cards and put EVGA on top, this way it will have both fans open (now one fan is completely blocked by PSU)
2) attach 2 fans on hdd cage so they blow air on card (between hdd cage and video cards, you will probably have to drill few holes and get the fan mounts and screws for this)

im no expert but based on the performance i was having when i had the evga on the top...it was hotter temps then it being on the bottem. comperd to the inno on top..this was with the side panel off. so i think i have it in the best configuration . i do need to get the fans though. but i dont think i need a new case for it. the side panel fan is massive. looking at the case you sugested the space is pritty much the same as my haf x. but i could move the harddrives and put them in the top giving more airflow for the front fan.i did not relise this would make a big diffrance though. i have hotswap bays on the top. the catch would still be there but empty and i could prob fit a fan on it. 2. one thing to note is that my cpu temp were going to 70. this is on an oc of 4.5ghz..i did this oc a long time ago and had help on fourms. but could the black screen i experince be down to unstable oc? i never thoguht much of it since i dident have issues playing games..it seems to of only started with witcher 3. and the random fps drop thing is a new issue. the psu is about 5 years old..and the cpu think its like 3 years or somthing. i cant remeber.lol. is that heat normal.. iv only applyd thermal combound about twice. and its allwasy been arctic silver 5.
