Possible Solution to 9800 GX2 high temperatures? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I have the same card and problem with the heat but with the air curculating in my case it drives the core temp to 72 at idle and exhaust is about 65 according to my thermostat placed on to the top of the vent.

I have a small bedroom and this thing cooks my legs. I have a good case with rear vent and a small side on in the clear plastic case to the outside world which helps.

I guess the next stage in evolution of cooling will be to use Liq nitrogen or a forced convection system with cool air into the box.

I want to try and avoid using liquid if at all possible

You could probably just rewire the 3-pin connectors so that you reverse the current, reverse current = fan moving in opposite direction. Then again, you have to be brave/knowledgable/stupid to try something like that.

Hi.
i know its a little old this post... but i found it searching on the web, and i have a little problem... maybe someone can helpme...

well, i've this card (a pny geforce 9800gx2 actualy), anyway... i've tryied everything to keep my card cooled, and nothing happens, i mean, you said your temps were running arround 70°c on full load, well my card, goes over 115°c an then shut's down my system
things i've tryied so far...
1.- change my case, for a very expensive coolermaster one, no luck
2.- changed my power source to a SLI ready made for play CoolerMaster
3.- changed the airflow (changing the direction of the vents to some obvious path)
4.- i changed locations (to the next room), this shouldn be the real problem, since in my room there are hardly 15 c°
5.- i changed my desk, i though i could be holding the heat beneath, with a metal, grided and glass one.
6.- opened my card up an clean the dust and put oil in the vent... it wasn't sweaking nor obstructed, but i was desperate...
7.- i downclocked my card to 450 MHz with evga precision (this actualy made it a progress, since it cooled from 115° to 107° or so, the system wasnt hanging anymore)
8.- of course, one of the first thing's i tryied was puting the vga vent to 100%

well,after reading your post, i know that there is something wrong, idle my card goes to 66° but on load gos skyrocket also, i'm way over my warranty, and this problem is rencently... and i didnt do anything really important that afect's this.

sorry about the large post, but i wanted to give the most of the data so you can helpme
Thanks in advance.
Roger.
