[Official] ASUS SABERTOOTH Motherboards Club (TUF Series) - Page 78

post #771 of 1591
Anyone with two 580's SLI in a X58 board, sandwiched cards give some temps. Idle and full throttle?

I have a moderate OC of 13% across the board from vanilla specs. 875 Core/1111 Memory/ 1750 Shader 1.075v. I idle at 41C and gaming I reach 82C at that OC and voltage.

Curious what would happen if I added a second GTX 580 sandwiched close together?

I'm thinking of pulling the SLI trigger and curious on what kind of temps and if it would be insanely high difference between top and bottom card. 10C difference would mean that the top card would idle 51C and full throttle after some heavy gaming like Crysis would end up 92C.

I'd be ok for full throttle when gaming since it would only be there for a few hours at a time but the idle temp 50C 24/7 I'd imagine might shorten my GPU's lifespan.

The Sabertooth X58 is a great mobo but the PCIe slots close together forcing the sandwich of my GPU's gives me some pause from SLI. Anyone with them please respond would be greatly appreciated.

P67 Sabertooth owner here

Installed the newest Bios today SABERTOOTH-P67-ASUS-1606

Idle load temps have gone up by 4-5C, and my Wattage meter on the wall is reporting average wattage has gone up from 180 watts idle to 210watts idle

Using all the same overclock settings as before

You think they snuck something in for the Wattage limit based on overclocks to help with stability?

^ Yeah that does sound weird. You never know. Just keep monitoring the temp + voltage I guess. I don't know why they would mess with that stuff though.

I've attributed the heat increases to just temperature increases in my room a raise of 2c resulting in 3-5C increase in CPU temps

If I lower room temp the idle temps are the same as they were before

BUT I still can't understand where the extra 30+ watts are being used, I've been monitoring CPU voltage and I've noticed that its gone up -A LITTLE- since the previous 1502 bios

Before with LLC on Ultra high and set to 1.2500 volts I would have the voltage at most of the time sitting at 1.2560 volts idle, constantly dipping down to 1.248 volts randomly

Now it sits most of its time at 1.2560 volts, RARELY dipping down to 1.248 volts and instead is spending 40% of the time at 1.264 volts, a good 55% of that time at 1.2560 volts and rest 1.248 volts

All other voltages are normal, to be honest my VCCIO temp has gone up 2C, but my two phase bank temperatures for thermal shield monitor report them at 30C, 2C cooler then before, but VCCIO voltage etc is still the same

These are using all the same mobo settings and configuration as before

You will absolutely see temp increases, up to 5-15C on idle or load. Go back one page to see me setup, and writeup on my GPUs. I don't have much experience with 580s, however the PCIe ports being that close will cause noticeable temp differences.




ON A SECOND NOTE:

I have been considering a p67 board as I recently snagged a 2600K for dirt cheap... Is anyone having issues with sleep/wake with the Sabertooth p67? or is that a chipset issue with the i5/i7? Lots of reviews online point toward the mobo giving sleep/wake issues.

I just rebooted to check all settings again in my bios

Everything is as I had it before, but like I said power use is up 30 watts which is unexplainable

Other then VCCIO reporting 1-2C increase in temps, all voltages etc are pretty much exactly as they were before

Hell its only when I get into windows I see the increased power use, booting up into the system watts is only around 140-160 like normal, it gets into windows and its 180-190, then bam, after everything is done loading jumps up to 202-210 watts

EDIT: I can only attribute the power jump to Windows, but I can't pinpoint what happened between bios flashes. CPU voltages though DO remain slightly higher even in BIOS with the same settings as before

EDIT2: I don't use sleep/wake nerdybeat, for longest life of a computer its best to just leave everything on at all times, including HD's and monitors, reduces the stress on components

You pay for more electricity yes, but parts will fail less often.

You'll drastically reduce the failure rate of hard drives, fans and monitors, in that order

That post was on two AMD 6870's which dissipates heat differently, I was seeking some specifics on the GTX 580 sandwiched. I'll assume it would be worse for the 580 over 6870's. Anyone with actual temps would be greatly appreciated.

ON THE SECOND NOTE:

I had similar issues that I posted and found fix with my i7 950 CPU w/X58 mobo here. Not sure if it's your same problem.

The thread - Windows 7 SP1 - BSOD "Internal_Power_Error" into 'Sleep' mode - HOT FIX FOUND!

Hotfix found here.

i can tell you from experience with my 580's and the temps top card in my case is hotter by 10c idles at 55c full load at 92c bottom card idles at 45c and full load at 82 but does have 2x case fans which are mounted on the floor of my case blowing strait onto it...

People who want to sleep/hibernate to work, disable c3,c6 in bios.

Guys, anybody running a SATA III SSD on a X58 MoBo? Have you guys been able to get around the Marvell controller limitations?
