Folding on my GTX 470's

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Sorry guys, but I had to opt out of the January foldathon due to obscene high temps on my one gtx 470.

Temps saw 94c on my top card and about 75c on my lower card.

So I'm waiting til next week when I put these puppies under water to fold again.

I tried

Did you try switching the cards placement?
Do you have a side panel fan to feed fresh air to the cards?
Have you setup a custom fan profile in MSI afterburner?

They're both at 100% right now, always have been. Also they are one PCI-E slot apart from each other.

It's most likely the bottom card feeding warm air to the top card. It's not uncommon.

Just wait til i'm on water

And as of right now, i'm actually missing a side panel, so no fresh air at all. Just ambient air

I know.. I never thought of that. Not sure why it gets that hot.

Normally it's 80c or around there but I saw it folding at 94c so I was like, nah I'll wait a week until I can water cool them

lol you never thought " I bet if I turn my clocks and VOLTAGE back to stock, my temps will go down...." ???? Seems like the obvious answer.. Really SLI 470s is fast as balls. I wouldn't even overclock em for 24/7 * GASP * I know I know lol.

Wait you have the 2nd card in the 3rd card and you are still getting 94c?
Have you tried folding on that card on its own to see if it gets those temps cause that seems way too high.

I'm surprised to see one work units make a 12*C difference on a card? Maybe I'm just really lucky so far but both my cards (right next to each other in an Antec 300 and over clocked) never see over 72*C no matter what, and generally stay under 70. Could be another issue, bad TIM or heatsink seating? Stuff that wouldn't show up under normal gaming conditions

Yea but its still really hot.
If you can rig up something and point a fan towards your intake fan of the card it should drop temps a good amount.

It happens, I know one day I got a certain unit that got me +15c.

Not sure what cards you have so no way of knowing how awesome those temps are...
