@Freakn-nice job on the heatsinks. let us know how it performs.
ohhhh ok, now i get it
a picture is worth a thousand words seems to be always true
thanks for clearing that up eveybody

Basically if you use the standard bridge that comes with the Card it might not have complete contact at both ends, or it might not be a complete connection. I can't think of how I could describe it better than basically like having a loose fitting pair of socks. Constantly having to pull them up. In this case constantly having to fiddle with the connector.

Finally able to set my cards at stock with 1.05 volts down from 1.125volts. I can even hit 960/1330 at that voltage on both cards. Dropped the temps a little which did help.

I really can't figure out why the top card runs so hot. I've added two 120mm tricools zip tied right behind the cards and they make no difference at all and actually made the cards 1 degree hotter.

I ended up turning all my case fans on medium and low then re-flashed the cards with an altered ramping set of the fans. So the fans are more effective at all temperature locations but still remain quiet when not in heavy use. This seemed to help stabilize the temps under load.

I'm stable now but still running 90c+ under load on the top card. I'm pretty much out of options except underclocking or maybe adding some ram heatsinks

cool the mosfets and inductors...you will clock higher {sinks + air}

Thanks for the tips. The problem is that I only have 1cm of room between the two cards.

What I've settled on for now, is to take my voltages down to 1.0 and adjust how the fans ramp up by about 10 degrees. I was able to underclock the cards to 800/1200 but, I have since brought the memory up to 1300 with no issues and based on the framerates in furmark this appears to be very close to what I had at stock settings before the underclock. My temps stay under 90c now at full load in furmark and the computer is pretty quiet. The loudest noise is actually coming from the fan that is on the Hyper 212+ cooler which I may swap out with something else or simply remove completely.

It works better for me in my case to have my 5770 in the second pci express slot (second down form the top).

I believe the slot is x8, will this affect performance of my card?

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/c...r_iv_formula/1

According to this review, specs;

4 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (Operates in Dual 16x/16x, Triple 16x/8x/8x or Quad 8x/8x/8x/8x)
2 x PCI

Your top 2 PCI slots will be 16x, should you CF two cards your still 16x, trifire they drop to 8x

Yes. Not noticably so unless you try to OC it. But I suggest running 1st slot. I have CH IV, as you know, and I run mine 1st slot x16.

If you adjust fan speed in CCC, heat shouldn't affect your NB temps all that much. Especially if your 5770 exhausts the temps out the back. If it's an open shroud card it will affect your NB, but I can't see it increasing the temps all that much.

At max settings my NB hits 51c if I don't adjust the fan speed. I generally speed the fan up to about 75% max and it keeps NB around 49c. This was before the NB fix of course. Since I'm still not back up I couldn't say what I would run now but those are my max temps.

You should be fine if you run it in 1st slot.

For people confused by this gentleman's question...

Crosshair IV runs
1st: x16
2nd: x8
3rd: x16
4th: x4

Which is very nice for those who run dual slot GPUs'. PITA to run 1 & 2 if you have dual slot cards.

Ok thanks guys, actually the issue was my case. I couldn't seem to get the very left side of the card seated in the pci slot correctly. I tried like 6 times then got pissed.

It was as if the metal back side of the card that has the dvi ports on it, was hitting the rear panel of the case when I inserted the card. But it wasn't. I pushed it so hard that it seemed any harder and it was going to break something.

I finally said the hell with it and dropped it down a slot. I noticed my gpu monitor gadget was reporting "PCI E link width x8"

I think I'm going to just leave it for now, if my game runs fine screw it. Next time I open my case I may mess with it. I know the manual says to use the first slot for single gpu. But if it works then wth.
