Worried about 5770 crossfire temps - Page 2

post #11 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hot glue might be a consideration as I will want a new case anyways on next build. Had this one for maybe 3-4 years now

just side panel off make sure fans are blowing in the right direction as front is intake and back and top is exhaust. add another fan if you can but those temps shouldn't be that high on use.

also replacing the tim and thermal pads does not void warranty. why would it your not soldering or anything.

My mobo is jammed with 2 XFX 5770s, titanium xfi, and a wifi card. I've never seen temps that high (on the actual GPU temp guage, overheating ram was another story - had to heatsink one of them to avoid RMA). Maybe its time to move up to a better case or straighten out cables / add more airflow to your current rig

Yeah I'll strongly consider it.

Fans in front are intake. Fans in back/top are exhaust. Only 1 intake though (p180b limitation ) and 2 top/1 back. All 120mm

I'm pretty sure if you remove the heatsink and replace the TIM you void warranty. I'll go look into it.

Update: Superglued (don't have glue gun) two fans as additional intake. The flow now is pretty decent (best I can do for now).

Yet the temps didn't improve much; AvP benchmark gets it to a max of 82C.

The 5770 V1 is the one getting hot I think. Unfortunately it's too long to swap positions with my V2 to see if that would help.

When I used MSI afterburner to regular the fans manually using the software, I got it to turn up the fan speed a LOT when it got past 75C and it was able to maintain a lower max temp of I think 78C for example. It's too loud for me to leave it at that speed. Therefore my conclusion is that the stock heatsink/cooler is really ineffective

I'll have to look at aftermarket coolers since I love these GPU's so much but they will be hard to mod, especially cuz they're different shapes so will need 2 different aftermarket coolers.

sell and start over, IMHO......

There's nothing wrong with the V1 cooler.
Since you can't swap it to test the "Position" theory, my guess is that the V1 cooler was not assembled correctly, and/or there's WAY too much TIM on it.

Yeah I'm tempted to sell.. OR open it up, take off the cooler and redo the TIM, and remount to see if anything helps. Might void XFX's warranty though, I'll have to look into that.

What case are you using?


Your max temps with 100% speed should be around 55c lol

You should be getting 65-70C tops with 40% fan speed

P180B. I get 78C I think with 100% speed.

Now I have 3 intakes (120mm) and 2 exhausts (120mm). Cabling is decent (worked on it when temps were high)
