460 SLI Idle Temps w/ Dual Monitors.. Seem Right? - Page 2

My big question is whether these temps I am seeing are normal. I have reapplied TIM twice and same result. Heatsink is getting plenty hot so I am not worried about heat transfer. Also have a custom fan profile running which does well.

My temps are as follows: (assume 850mhz and 1.075v)

Idle (SLI On) - ~49C on both
Idle (SLI Off) - 44C Top 36C Bottom

Load (SLI On running BC2 @ Max) - ~72C
Load (SLI Off w/ Kombustor on 32xAA/Max Res) - 65C


I realize the load temps seems fine for SLI, but I am wondering why these cards don't clock down for idle when SLI mode is enabled... seems like a hot idle to me.

CPU is watercooled, and the Case Intake is the 240 rad which has ap-15 gentle typhoons push/pull on it. Air coming off it is aimed directly at the cards and is not warm. Still running a 140mm top exhaust and a 120mm high speed yate for my rear exhaust by cpu socket. (moves a TON of hot air during GPU load)

I guess these seem relatively normal ? (its more than enough power for me considering i run a 1680x1050 monitor (for the 120hz =D)

My top twin frozr idles @28 C while my bottom one is @ 25C

do you have dual monitors plugged into one card ? I know that is a good cooler... I had it on my 470, but that is pretty solid if its running 2 displays .

Those temps look fine to me.

Where did you buy the cards? I would return them and go GTX560SLI if it's about $100 more.

But, I just installed a pair of EVGA GTX560 cards and the top card runs 75c on Crysis (1 slot gap). That is ok to me, cooler than a 570/580.
