SLI cooling

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just got my two GTX 980 TI SLI setup running. Using afterburner because it works really well in my LCD screen in my keyboard.
Everything works great except I can't get the fans to sync up. One will run my my custom curve, but the other one runs like the original stock fan settings in MSI. I have it set up to run synchronized. And it does everything but the fan speeds. Am I missing something? Or are there problems with this, like a bug or something?

Congrats on the dual 980 Tis. You could consider doing a BIOS mod to not only increase the performance of your 980 Tis, but to automatically set your preferred fan profile without the need of the OC software.

I wish I could help with the fan issue, but mine were never on air long enough to learn about setting the fans.

Thank you, yeah I got my first card bios modded. But now suddenly the GPU-Z won't copy down the new card bios for some reason. And even the old card bios anymore. Don't know what's up. So I can't upload one for Mr. dark.
Actually I found that fans are running like their supposed to. Problem is the temperatures are 10 to 15° difference between the cards. I need to check my thermal compound job I did on my new card. Since that's the one that seems to be running hotter.
You ever have any problems with GPU-Z not wanting to copy down the bios of the video card? Is there a different program I can try to copy down the video card bios?
