Noted temps were with the side cover on. I generally don't mention temps with the cover off, they don't count to me. Being that running with covers off owning 4 cats is a no no. I just couldn't get a good picwith the cover on.

I'm more than impressed with the temps. I thought I was gonna be water blocking these things. Seems to not even be close to an issue though.

Thanks for sharing with us. Glad to know these can actually manage decent temps in a good airflow setup. They look beautiful together too. thumb.gif

are their any waterblocks for that card?.. just curious because the current fan is very nice but i want a full overclock @ silent if possible
post #265 of 349
anyone using brace on their almost 4 lbs Lightning card? My top card sags a bit more than the lower one.

I have this but haven't installed it yet, hopefully the rubber support points can be adjusted to clear the fans

Wow... So you have a single Corsair 850 Watt Gold using three dual 6+2 PCIe cables to feed both your LightningX's!? What CPU are you using? Overclocked also? I imagine you're maxing out that PSU for sure.

 

I have two EVGA 1080Ti FTW3's in SLI along with a 5820K pulling 700-800 Watts load alone using four separate 6+2 PCIe cables.  It's usually recommended to use six separate cables to feed your setup instead of piggybacking the cables like that (At least four).

 

I can't speak for Corsair but i'd imagine the idea is the same as this Seasonic diagram:

Are you measuring that with like, a Kill-a-watt? Does the entire system pull 800 watts AC-side for you? That seems awfully unusually high. I have a 5820K too @ 4.5 ghz overclock, 8 x velociraptor drives in raid-5, raid card, big 50W water pump, and a EVGA 1080 Ti and about 16 fans and still my /entire system/ only pulls between 380 - 475 watts when gaming, max about 495, AC side. On a RM750 Gold. I don't know what portion of that is the 1080 Ti though, but.. your load still seems awfully high for that. Are you gaming with vsync on? If you have vsync off that might partially explain the high power draw.

Yes Kill-A-Watt directly to the wall with Vsync Off.  I have two 1080Ti's in SLI

That's your problem then. Your power usage should be almost -300 watts less if you'd game with vsync on, especially with a pair of 1080 Ti's. There's no point in having it off but just to run the cards hot and waste power for nothing.

Not a problem for me.... I have three ASUS MG279Q 1440P 144hz monitors at a total resolution of 7680x1440P @ 144hz  (Yes i know Freesync... previous GPU's were FURYX crossfire)  I  recently limited my FPS using Rivatuner at 144 for most games that don't have a forced Vsync. Haven't tried the kill-a-watt since then. Not a fan of Vsync at all actually.
