Do you find GTX 460's in SLI (on load) loud or is that just me?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello boys and girls, if you haven't guessed I have 2 GTX 460's in SLI.

They are fine playing most games with Vsync on but on certain games and benchs the fans drive me nuts!

The performance is great but the sandwiched card gets stupidly loud.

Also I'm a little scared about the heat, i was running Furmark and the sandwiched card got to 98C! after 2 and a half mins. Thank goodness it never gets this hot in game max is about 80-88C

What do you think? is SLI silly unless your watercooling? or am I whining a little too much?

Take a look at your card's temperature on load. if it's not high, you may reduce the cooler speed until the noise stops.

Dont use furmark, it will kill your cards, use Vantage or another benchmark for stability testing and to see what temps you get.

Watercool if too loud or if not a option se up custom fan profiles so it is only loud when it has to be. More then likely though with two cards not watercooled there gonna be pumping the fans alot because they will be hot alot!

Thanks, Sir Overkill.

so whats the easiest way to set up fan configs? and do you have any tips?

normally i run most games with vsync which means the game doesn't use too much performance and keeps the cards cool and quiet

but now i have 3 displays totalling 5040x1050 they use more power (not complaining just saying lol

I can't really watercool because i have the FT02 and also I'd rather not

anyone know of a company making new coolers designed for SLI? that would be useful

Sandwiched? Well there's your problem. Your only options are to pretty much water cool it, or move them into slots that are further apart if possible.
