I suppose I could try turning the back case fan back around as an exhaust then flip the top fan and see if that helps. It might since it will be blowing air more directly onto the cards. hmm... here we go.
Wait do you have 5770 or "ATI Radeon HD 4770" that is what it says on your system specs

If you feel its too hot on overclocks.. then forget about overclocking your cards.. its not really necessary stock CF 5770 still runs fine on all latest games.

my system specs are now updated

I have 2 5770 Vapor-X running in crossfire. No matter what I do the top one will not go under 90c* (Stock Settings) when testing it with Furmark or Kombuster.

I know it must have to do with the millimeter of space between the two cards. I have an ASRock A785GXH board and the PCI-E slots are very close together. I'm sure there is just a dead space with almost no air right between the two cards which is just killing the top card.

I'm wondering if a good high CFM PCI fan would help to try and either pull heat off the top card or force more air underneath the bottom one.

Well the *Sure* way to lower your temps on them... if you don't care about warranty... change the Thermal Paste(try any of these: MX-2, MX-3, AC5, Shin-Etsu) of the cards, that will surely reduce it... other than that maybe you need to improve somehow the air cooling inside your case(i haven't seen how your setup looks.. so I can't say much)... waffles someone else probably has a better suggestion for you.

Where I live its pretty hot, with the AC off my cards max load temps on the hottest card it reaches 78c & the other one is around 73c both being at stock... mines are batmobiles I assume your Vapor's are suppose to run much cooler than mines.

Just wait for someone else to give a better solution

@Brightico-your gonna need some more airflow in your case or get another case. vaporx cards just blow the hot air all over the inside of the case. i solved this same issue with my trifire by installing 2 ultra kaze 3k's as exhaust and 1 as intake. i have 3 other fans in there too as intakes and exhaust but needed that extra cfm that the ultra kaze's bring. i have never had my cards get hotter than 85c and it was the middle card that got that hot.

You should be able to adjust your fan settings in CCC to run faster speeds.

And it should not void your warranty changing TIM unless your GPU has a voidable sticker on them. My XFX card doesn't. But I'm not aware of the other manufacturers' operations concerning warranties. But if they don't want you under the hood they'll tell you with a "warranty void if removed" sticker.

I'm 48c and 38c at Idle.

Is there a problem with Furmark, or something else, or should I even be concerned? I'm assuming the fans on these cards work correctly?

I've ran both these cards single before and no issues taking them to 960/1300+ and they stayed under 85c*. As soon as I do crossfire though I have this heat issue.

FYI: Antec 300 Black Illusion case, with Sflex side fan installed and I've switched cards and there is no difference. I don't even think the side case fan is making a difference either. It does help irritate me with the added noise though so that's a plus if your a masochist.

Thanks so much for the replies guys. I'm looking at a few options now, this is my first xfire rig so I don't quite have the mentality for it yet.

1. Install a single slot pci cooler above the top card to pull hot air away from the card and out the back of the case.
*Ordered and is on it's way*

2. Install another slim case fan and put it directly aiming at the sides of both cards by using a Sunbeam Wherever PCI Rack

3. Change the thermal compound and reapply. (No warranty voided) I've actually done this to the top card but didn't see an improvement, however I didn't use good paste as mentioned above.
*Just ordered some MX-2 paste from Amazon for $9.00, I have amazon prime too so it will be here very shortly.*

Maybe after all that I can turn some of these other fan speeds down a notch, this is just too much noise for me. The thing is I'm looking for at least a 10c* drop in temps, and I'm just not sure that's going to be possible outside of water-cooling, and I don't want to spend that kind of money on some 5770's.

Thanks for all the suggestions, again. I think I have just about got it solved this time. I headed over to BestBuy and picked up one of those spot cooling fans and that helped a whole bunch.

First I got more cable ties and straightened up the cables a bit, then I moved the HDD to the bottom of the case so nothing would restrict the airflow of the two front case fans. Then I stuck the spot-fan right behind both cards. The idea was to force more unrestricted cool air from the front of the case onto the backs of the 5770's. It seems to have helped, tremendously. I also pulled off the pci cover above the top card since I'll be putting a blower there to pull heat from the top card.

Temps dropped about 8-10c* on load which put me around mid 80's.

What I'll do now is maybe buy two 80mm fans and just stack them between the two 5770's and the front case fans. That should really take my temps down and allow me to lower the speed of the front fans to medium to quieten everything down.

I'll post my results, and maybe some benchmarks when I'm done this weekend if anyone wants to see.

I think I just spotted your problem...



"Case:
Antec 300 Black Illusion"...





Juuuuuuusssst kidding.

But honestly if you had a case with a mad amount of airflow I don't think that you'd be fighting with it as much.
