Have had some issues lately with GPU heat though..
My brand new XFX HD6950 would run about 65-70 degrees under heavy load while OC'd about 20% and 55-60% fan speed.

Then I put a second card in there to make use of a third monitor (Nvidia GTX275..)

The second card basically restricts airflow so much I'm now running at standard clocks with the fan speed quite noisey around 65% and 70 degrees while IDLE.

Short of full watercooling, how much would a sidefan help Dual GPU temps?
Because the sudden increase in heat merely from adding another card is insane.

adding a side fan will help with the airflow alot..

Added blue cold cathode kit to my cut out side fan area. Looks good. smile.gif

30mm if you buy a NZXT fan or 20mm if you buy a Xigmatech fan.

Width wise anyway.

So I Looked up a comparison of running 2 cards in x16/x16 vs x16/x8 bandwidth PCI-E slots and found there to be almost no difference at all.
Some games were 1-3fps higher, some 1-3fps lower at maximum settings.

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/08/16/sli_cfx_pcie_bandwidth_perf_x16x16_vs_x16x8/1

So I put the second card in the x8 slot at the bottom which now gives the top one its original cooling capacity.


I might still get a side fan when my second HD6950 gets here since they'll both be OC'd and it might shed a few more degrees.


Pics will come once lighting does tongue.gif
else it will just be another generic white air cooled phantom
