Strange overheating problem - Page 3

post #21 of 26
I agree, replace the psu and then test. If you are still having problems we can look into air circulation issues, but the truth is even if the PSU is not causing overheating issues right now, it will be causing some very bad issues down the road.

Even if that were a great 600 watt psu, crossfiring on 600 watts is a bit risky

If you look at the interior of the case, pics here, you will see that the front intakes have very restrictive punch holes in the metal. Also, from the pics, it appears that the air flowing from the front of the case to the rear may not even pass over the video card.

If you'd like to test my assumption that your video card is starving for cool air, remove the side cover and position a fan to blow in the case.

Guys, really. He just said he blew a freaking fan against the cards and it didn't make the slightest difference. Yes, the case is horrible, it sucks and it looks awful. The real issue, however, is not the case.

If I'm going to make a guess, OP did not have problems with his 8800GT. When he jumped to a 470 his temps started to skyrocket. Why was the 8800GT not affected?

Yeah looks like I'm going to go psu shopping, and maybe buy a new case while I'm at it Thanks for the help guys.

A decent quality 650-700 watter should fit the bill nicely

Good idea. If you're in a need for a quick brand recommendation then look for Seasonic units. Phaedrus has a great thread with further info on PSUs and brands/models iirc. Look into that and you might even get his help with choosing one.

Now I'm completely bias on this but; the HAF 912 and higher are nice cases along with the Antec 300 and higher.

Watts are not the only thing to consider.
So many people are led to believe bigger numbers mean better when that is not the case entirely. You need to match parts to their uses.
