[Official] --The Asus P6X58D Premium & E Thread-- - Page 444

post #4431 of 6382
Hello everyone!! I have a major problem with my new computer. I am running 2x GTX 470's in SLI and I think the bottom card is causing the top card to get to 90+ degrees because the top card's fan is being blocked. I have seen other setups and they look exactly the same but without this problem. These temps are when I am gaming.

I ruled out that it may be one of the graphics cards by flipping them and getting the same results, the top card being 90+ degrees.

I don't think the case airflow is the problem as everything else is at normal temps.

Is there anything I am doing wrong?

Here are some pics of the temps and setup 5 minutes into playing a game, any advice would help:

YES! You are correct! AVG is outta here

Carbonite online back up was using 25% of my CPU as well.... yes 25%!!!!

I called them and found I had an older version. I reinstalled and now thats all better, no longer using 25%

of course as I was typing this I had a BSOD. 0x00000024. I ran disc scan and that came up clean, microsoft mem test comes up clean too.

Clocks are set to default until I can all this sorted, then I'll start over with the OCing

Sounds like reinstalling windows might be a possible solution.

eek.gif This has come up before . It's just awful tight there not much room to breathe. I haven't had to deal with it yet but I probably will because I just ordered a second 460. Probably the best thing you could do would be to drop the lower card into the third slot if you have room. Even if you have the room above the PSU you would have to do some modding to make it fit in the back panel. Other than that looking into some aftermarket coolers would help. Be careful with that though because most of the more popular aftermarket coolers will turn it into a 3 slot card. Setting a custom fan profile in afterburner would help a little. Play around with airflow. Try turning the side fans as exhaust and top as intake. That didn't do me much good for a single card but I've seen it recomended enough that there has to be something to it. I'd also try mounting a fan on the back of the harddrive cage. Position it up a little ways and try to direct some air between the cards. Just some ideas.

Forgot the obvious, Water cooling.

I did exactly what you told me to sizzzle. I mounted another fan on the back of the hard drive case. I also changed my monitor output to the bottom card, set the physX option to the CPU and I put a small screw between the 2 cards to allow more air between them. Now I'm running at 80-84C, still hot but 20C less and something I can live with. I would do water cooling but I'm broke =P

BTW, here's my full setup smile.gif

Avira has a small footprint too.

I did a bunch of spring cleaning and did a repair with W7. Trying to get PC ProbeII loaded up and in the repair process AsUninsHlp.dll was lost. I got a copy of it but need to know where it wants to be.

What are the chances that one of you guys would pop it in the search bar and tell me where its located biggrin.gif

On a side note. Everything seems stable, once I get done cleaning up a couple reinstalls I'm going to run all the standard tests and let prime95 go over night just to be sure.

If u move the psu to the top and move the second card to bottom slot it will fix your problem.
I have the same case as you and that is what i did, u will have to do some slight modifications to the case.
Also u will have to use a tri sli ribbon to reach both cards.

I PC Probe all sorted out and reinstalled. ASUS customer service thought it might be a good idea to run that when running Prime95 to check for voltage drop during the test. Voltage does drop down to 11.86V but levels out there. The other volts seem to not move at all. How low is too low with that 12v?

When applying the 4.2 OC I have noticed my ram timing switch to 9-9-9-24. Factory spec for my ram is 8-8-8-24 1T

In the RAM settings there is alot more there then just the timings.

So I guess my question is. Should I leave the ram set to auto and try to get a stable clock at the 9-9-9-24 timing or should I lock the RAM into the factory spec?

I dont know much about setting these timings on the ram, there are a lot more parameters in there besides just the timings. Advice or a link to a RAM timing guide would be pretty helpful. Trying to get things stable now (again).

*EDIT, found this //http://www.overclock.net/intel-memory/824492-how-set-memory-timing-asus-p6x58d.html". Its that simple? Just change out the 9s to 8s?

So far I have bumped CPU Voltage up twice and QPI/DRAM up once. I have read earlier in this threat that bumping the DRAM BUS from 1.64 to 1.66 can help as well but I really care for RED numbers in my BIOS haha!! So I'll try to avoid that if possible.

Thanks guys for all your help so far!
