warning galaxy 460gtx if you multi GPU fold

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
in the pic below from left to right 1,2,3,4 do not stick a galaxy 460gtx in slot 1,2,3 it gets way to hot. either the heat sink gets heat soaked to fast or the fan cant keep up.( yes fan was set at max with another fan blowing on top of them)

i know its not just the card because i have 2 of them when i swap them from spots by taking spot 4 to 3. the card in slot 3 gets way too hot again. It gets up near 100c+ and starts throttling when the galaxy in slot 4 is at 60c.

My pny cards have no issues and are at 70c. SO i had to put the pny 470 back in and put the galaxy 460gtx in the other machine. I may return this galaxy and pick up another pny.

Nice cards but not good for a 4GPU box.

I have seen hotter cards in 4 slots.

Point a fan in between them, by placing it on top or on the side.
Also unscrew them and try moving them apart a little.

If not get a adapter so they do not have to be on top of each other.

already have a big fan on top of them. problem is the galaxy once it hits 100c PPD gets cut in half. starts to throttle im assuming.

If you want to run the cards like you are without a high temp problem, consider water cooling??

no issues now with 460 460 470 460

70c 68c 71c 57c temps are the same except when you put galaxy in slot 3 it goes to 100c.
